2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

After 18 months and 44,000 miles with my
2003 Civic Hybrid 4 door with CV
transmission, I still remain happy and
enthusiastic about it's design, construction,
handling, enviornmental attributes, and of
course wonderful fuel economy, and no, I
don,t work for Honda. My overall mpg is
slightly over 51 mpg. My best milage for 150
miles is over 60 mpg, and best ever is 76
mpg for 15 miles. I drove at posted speed
limits, but was prudent. I have not yet tired of
the satisfaction of being able to drive over
600 miles before getting a low fuel
indication. In short, I continue to be quite
satisfied with my decision and purchase,
and would do it again!


Best Features

High MPG and satisfaction of driving a green machine. Well designed & easy to use security/anti-theft system. The CVTrans. is great in traffic and optimizes torque/performance and MPG.


Worst Features

None for this size vehicle, but choice of a slightly larger hybrid vehicle would be welcome, perhaps with AWD.

2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Review

This is a great car. Expensive, but
it's worth it. It looks as if it has
something meaty under the bonnet.
People ask me how big its engine is,
and get confused when I say 1.3 litres!
Then you mention the 10kW electric
motor, and they get even more confused -
amazed is better.


Best Features

Auto-stop is great. But the best thing is the green LEDs when you're recharging.


Worst Features

The ventilation seems to have trouble clearing the screen when it mists up in English weather.

2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Review

I own the "cvt" or automatic version of
the Hybrid. Its very quiet except for
road noise. Friends have been impressed
and geeked out by the "click-start" and
the semi-digital,indigo dash
(especially the battery meters).
I average 42MPG. Excellent sound system
and room for adding power points.


Best Features

The auto-shutoff feature. Great for saving those few extra drops of gasoline when the car is at a standstill.


Worst Features

Something needs to be done about the excessive drain the A/C has on fuel economy, and the digital fuel gage could use a little tweaking to be a little more accurate (percentages, maybe?)

2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I bought my Civic Hybrid in August and
I couldn't be happier. It is so much
fun to drive and the fuel efficiency is
wonderful! I would reccomend the car
to anyone looking for a sporty, yet
practical car that will save you lots
of money in gas!


Best Features

The green light that tells me when my battery is recharging itself.


Worst Features

The ONLY thing I dislike is that the cruise control, rear defogger, and power miror controls are to the left of the steering wheel and almost impossible to access in the dark, they are hard to reach and hard to see!

2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

This a great car! Very comfortable,
very responsive. My only complaint is
the mileage. 36MPG with CVT with 4,500
miles on the odometer.Dealer says it
will improve after 5,000miles. I could
have bought a Civic LX for $5,000 less
and got the same mileage!


Best Features

The auto stop feature still amazes me. The dash display is really fun to watch to see what your current MPG is.


Worst Features

To be able to lock and unlock the doors from the passenger side. To have the headlights auto turn off after the car is turned off.
