2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)
Great car. Practical, yet fun to drive, for both technical husband and non-car person spouse (daily driver). MPG is 39.2 with every tankful documented over life of car/hard urban and rural driving/not babied - can maintain 80 mph climbing long Allegheny mntn grades, even after losing electric boost - CVT compensates effortlessly by adjusting engine rpms without kickdown! 45-50 mpg maintained only if cruising level at 45-55 mph. Honda (our first) quality evident but took long time to resolve severe dash rattle. OE tires designed to max mpg a bit unsure on curves and traction. Replaced at 50K with Yokohama Avid 4s - very good, only about one mpg drop-off. Great car.
Favorite Features
Automatic temp control,only on hybrid,excellent feature, even adjusts fan speed. CVT transmission very smooth and adjusts power bands in mountains hard driving with no slippage or kickdowns. Instrument display allows good view of powertrain logic unfolding.Electric boost/drop-off from gas seamless.
Suggested Improvements
Allow AC to run during economy cycle engine shutdown (like later models). Fold-down rear seat. Better original equipment tires and shock/spring damping. Inform customer of extra service costs e.g. 0-20 oil and removal of underbody panel for change, CVT fluid change every 30K.
