ReviewThe draw to this vehicle is the environmentally friendly engine. Looks great on paper but it has not held up to its hype. Several trips back to the dealership have met with frustration and a lack of knowledge and understanding of the Hybrid by the Honda technicians and salespersons. The Hybrid engine does not shut down if the outside temperature is below 43 degrees so unless you live in the south, don't expect any outstanding gas mileage. Even when it's warm out, I'm still only seeing 40 mpg. Honda says the engine is working perfectly--if that's so, estimated mpg is not realistic.
