2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)
Review
Bought this car to save money in anticipation of rising gas prices. It was purchased for commuting but we drive it on trips too. I have logged every fill-up and calculate a lifetime average of 46 MPG. Mileage is cyclic with weather here in western NY. In winter get as low as 38 MPG. Summer as high as 53 MPG. At 68000 miles I estimate a savings of $1700 over a car with average of 30 MPG. Trade-in value is $2800 greater than 2003 Civic LX. Have had no maintenance issues. On second set of tires and still original brakes. I enjoy owning this car and will keep it until it rusts in half. I will buy another alternate energy vehicle at the next opportunity.
Favorite Features
Two weeks between fill-ups. Great performance for a 1.3 litre 4 cyl. Instrumentation. Manual transmission (no longer available). Smooth ride for a little car. Great AC that doesn't hurt mileage.
Suggested Improvements
Boring color selection. Dated '03 body style. Few options (would have loved a sunroof). No fold-down rear seat.
