i drive over 25000 miles a year, so
saving an estimated $5,000 over 5 yrs
in fuel costs. still getting 48.4 mpg,
even though i beat on the car and
average about 90mph on the freeway.
yeah, im a speedfreak and the 85 horses
still perform well at this consistant
gas savings! good looks, huge interior
for a compact car. also the battery
pack over the rear tires provides extra
weight for snow driving, making this
more sure footed in the snow than
regular front wheel drives.
breaking system, theres something not
right, but other honda model owners
feel it too. hard to describe it, but
dont trust it.
I have enjoyed the quiet, reliable,
comfortable performance of this car.
I get 40 to 44 MPG gasoline during
the cooler months.
People comment on the beauty and the quiet
performance of the engine. I am amused
every time someone asks me, "You don't
ever have to plug it in?"
Looks, quiet engine, power of engine even
though the gasoline mileage is great.
I have to admit to being skeptical. I
live in a mountainous area, so
performance can be an issue. Not so
here. This car is perfect! I can pass
other vehicles uphill at 55 mph and not
break a sweat! Fun and powerful, this
is a great car. With the cost saving
hybrid technology, I recommend this car
Cabin Space. I'm under 5ft, my friends
are all over 6 ft. We all fit in the
car and are comfortable.
I would like to see the trunck/gas
hatch release moved up off the floor.
Perhaps to the door. I'd also like to
see the radio controls on the wheel

As a New York City native and one keenly aware of
our over-dependence on Mideast oil, I turned my
attention away from the Accord the dealership was
showing me, to the sporty little Civic Hybrid that
supposedly got 50 miles per gallon. I was one of
the first in New Hampshire to purchase one, and
I've been delighted with it. I'm 6 foot 2, and there's
maybe 4 or 5 inches of extra headroom. It's a
roomy, fast little car, and I get between 43 mpg and
52 mpg depending on the season and whether my
snow tires are on or not. Pick-up is great, I love its
looks, and it's fun to drive. And I feel good that less
of my money is going to Mideast oil sheiks.
Headroom! Lots of it. Peppy and good pick-up from
the toll booth or on passing when I really need it.
Handles the road well, corners well, and the gas
mileage really is super. My best is 52 mpg; I've
actually driven NH to NYC round-trip on one tank
Promote the heck out of this technology as it's a
real winner, and get those gas-guzzling SUVs and
monster trucks off the road.
I drive a lot and wanted a car that
would perform well and be reliable as
well as fuel efficient. I am a devotee
of Honda since buying a 9 year old
Accord in 1995 that a friend of mine is
still driving. The Civic Hybrid fits the
bill. It's fun to drive (a little slow
out of the gate, but passable) and it's
even more fun to see it get more than
600 miles to a tank. You can't be that
in these times. I will alway be a Honda
I love that the car shows you how you're
doing on gas mileage. The dashboard was
distracting at first (too much to
watch!) but now, I love it.
They really, really need to find a way
to put a sunroof on this car. There's
got to be a way to move the antenna to
accomplish it. The car would be perfect
