A friend purchased the Civic Hybrid the first year they were made. She is still driving and loving it. I was impressed and decided to try it. Like many people I was disappointed in my mileage during the first couple of months but I read the message boards and learned that it would increase with time and my experience with driving a hybrid. It has. I average 45-52 mpg. I seldom have to get gas but when I do, I smile the whole time. Other cars may get great gas mileage but I have that along with Honda reliabilty and safety. This is a great value for the money!
Gas mileage. Much quieter, smoother ride than the Prius with better visability through the rear window. I was surprised at how roomy it is. Very comfortable for tall people.
Need options like leather, moon roof, upgrade seats. Needs auto shut-off for headlights.
