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
miss from my 2002 Honda Civic EX are
the color. . I also gained
alloy wheels, side impact airbags. In
short, I love my honda hybrid!

and of course, the gas mileage and
A few things I miss from my 2002 Honda
Civic EX are the navy blue color and
sunroof. However, I gained

Absolutely the most economical and fun
car to drive. The IMA system smokes
some of the fancier cars like the BMW,
Jetta, Ford ponies right at the light.
I made a trip from NJ to South Carolina
(800 miles one way) on 17 gallons of
gas. It cost more for the tolls than it
did for the fuel!The road pep is
surprising. Great sound system as well.
Plenty of room for the passengers and
the trunk is very roomy.The engine is
extremely quiet. Interior cooling and
heating are super. BUY this car!
A/C is excellent.
Room for gear.
seats are comfortable.
5000 mile oil change interval
No charging needed
Great sound system
Good leg room
quiet the road noise.. give the auto
stop feature a 1 minute delay it will
save the starter motor.
Great car. Great performance. Never a
problem and great mileage. What more
can you ask? Comfort? Yup, it's got
that too as well as creature comforts
and features like CD player, Climate
control, cruise control, etc. Try it.
You won't like it... You'll love it.
Driving around Phoenix,AZ I average
47MPG. Took a 4,000mile trip back to
the midwest with a lot of mountain
driving. Loaded with luggage,two adults
and AC running continuously, we
averaged 43MPG. Had NO problem going
thru mountains. Had lots of power and
I love it when the car takes a nap at
