2004 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)

Review

I have the manual trans. If Honda offered the man trans in new hybrid, I'd buy one. When I drive at speed limit (55 mph), I ave 55-60 mpg. New hybrid can't approach this. Freeway traveling (60-65 mph) ave is 50 mpg. Headwind kills mpg. Snow tires kills mpg. To me, mpg is more important than getting there early. Two recalls for engine computer stuff. Never any problems. Haven't replaced brakes yet. I have them checked at every oil change (3k miles) & so far not worn out. I'm getting nervous. Compared to previous vehicle(Jeep Gr Cher, 20mpg) I paid for hybrid August 2003. Honda should offer man trans for Civic hybrid, same as regular Civic.

Best Features

1. mpg 2. Reliability 3. Manual Transmission

Worst Features

If Honda was serious about fuel economy, they would offer a Manual Transmission for the Civic hybrid. CVT only is compromise between marketing & fuel economy performance.
