Although my Civic Hybrid does not get
quite to mileage advertised, it
consistently gives me mileage in the
40's and in the high 40's in highway
driving. It is solid and has an
excellent safety rating--which is one
reason I chose it over the Toyota Prius.
Its design is not pretentious, which I

The design should permit the rear seats

As we pass the gas stations we laugh.
Our Honda Hybrid gets 45 MPG and rides
like a dream. It is fun to drive
also. We really get a kick out of
listening to the engine stop at stop
lights. If you have a hybrid you know
what I mean. Tee Hee
I only had to take it back once in
34000 miles. The plastic right front

I get 47mpg highway, 39 city. It took
a little getting used to driving a
hybrid at first. The engine 'autostop'
was a shocker. Who would ever think of
an engine shutting off while stopped in
traffic? And when entering a highway,
going uphill was also a bit tough. In
order to get more power, you shift into
2 for a few seconds, then just shift
back into 1. (This is with an
automatic civic sedan.) A few things I
