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


It's a little car but it's quiet, fun, peppy, and the economy is a thumb in the eye to the oil companies. The Honda quality is evident though we have a bit of a dash rattle. The two anti-theft systems got us an insurance break. The car asks nothing special of you but beware that it's built for economy and not tire-shredding takeoffs. We routinely get better than 55 mpg in town and 48+ on the highway, better than the EPA numbers and better now than when brand new (10,400 miles ago). This is a CVT which "outmileages" the manual by a bit.

Best Features

Mileage (duh). Easy to drive and park. Nice sound system. Standard antilock, cruise, AM/FM/CD, power locks, windows. comfortable.

Worst Features

The center console gets in the way and is really pretty useless. How about daytime running lights. They do it for the Canadian models. One should be able to roll up the windows once the car is shut off. More color choices.
