ReviewI bought the Civic Hybrid to help fight back after the "when you buy drugs, you're supporting terrorism" ads on TV made me realize that "when you buy gasoline, you're supporting terrorism." As it turns out, the hybrid is such a terrific car that I would by it again even if it wasn't the right thing to do. I haven't missed my fancy German sports sedan one bit. The hybrid handles nearly as well, has excellent acceleration and braking, an incredibly quiet and comfortable ride, luxurious but not ostentatious interior, and makes me feel quite virtuous driving it.
Best FeaturesThe engine turning off when not needed. I love the silence and the knowledge that I'm not spewing out fumes in traffic. It turns back on so instantly and effortlessly, it makes other cars that have to keep running all the time look primitive.
