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


Review

I've had my Civic Hybrid CVT for 3 months now and have had no problems, lots of questions from others and now I don't think as much about my new found driving habits. The car makes you want to drive better (and slower too) so you can improve your mileage.


Favorite Features

IMA display and the gauge cluster in general. The climate control system.


Suggested Improvements

Sunroof, leather, XM Radio, MP3 capabilities.

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


Review

After driving mini vans and other "family cars", it was nice to drive a small vehicle. I was looking for a car for commuting 100 miles per day. The Honda Hybrid seemed to fit the criteria. To date, I have had three transmissions and the third transmission is causing problems. If Honda could fix this car, I would like it much more. I don't think Honda is willing to work with me. I have had trouble with the dealership and the Honda company. I want a dependable car that doesn't spend every 3rd month in the shop.


Favorite Features

Personally, I like the limited options. Main vehicle to commute. Didn't want too many options. Enjoy a car that has a CD player. I think I am getting the expected mileage (when the car is working properly).


Suggested Improvements

Find the problem with the whining sound that has caused my transmission to be replaced 3 times in eight months. The interior lights are nice but impossible to read when have lights on during the day. I WANT DEPENDABILITY. I have been disappointed with my first "foreign" car.

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


Review

First new car ever and after one month, still fun to drive. Excellent worksmanship, quite, comfortable, and just a joy to fill up after 530 miles per tank. Great in the city and 4 hours on the highway. More comfortable than my 98 Honda Accord. It does not get any better than this.


Favorite Features

Gauges are hot and fun to watch. Feel like I am driving an airplane. Handles great and more power than I need to merge into fast moving traffic


Suggested Improvements

Gear indicator light, center console for storage and cup holder, lights for rear passangers.
