Honda Civic Hybrid has Flaws

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

Review

I purchased the Honda Civic Hybrid because I thought it would be reliable and get outstanding fuel economy. I was sorely disappointed. Instead of getting the 48 MPG as advertized, I never get more than 38 MPG, even under gentle driving conditions. The undercarriage protective plate is made of cheap plastic, instead of steel as on conventional cars. This plate falls off under normal driving conditions at a cost of $65, which is not covered under the warranty. Dearler customer service is poor. I do not recommend this car.

Favorite Features

The engine turns off at stoplights.

Suggested Improvements

Truth in advertizing on fuel economy. Honda's numbers border on fraud. Replace the plastic undercarriage plate with a steel one. Improve customer service.
