Mostly great, but one concern

ReviewI've owned my '05 civic hybrid for about three months now, and for the most part, I love it. Very comfy, great console layout, roomy. The mileage isn't what was advertised, but I'm still averaging 39mph, which is great. The one issue I have is parking on hills. If the car is facing downhill, reversing up the hill to park is very tricky at first (I discovered this the hard way). I've found I have to use the emergency brake and rev up until the car gets out of Auto Stop, and only then does the car have the power to back up. Other than that and less pickup than I'd like (plus, the addition of a sun/moonroof would be nice, but that's minor), it's a solid car.
Best FeaturesComfort, blue-and-red dash is easy on the eyes at night, accessible controls
Worst FeaturesBetter tires and pickup, sun/moonroof, advise drivers of the hill issue
