2005 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


OK, I'll admit, the sticker mpg of 47 highway is high - I usually get about 40mpg on the highway setting the cruise at 70. And the pick-up is a little slow (I used to have a 6 cyl, so it's an adjustment). In town (which is most of my driving anyway to work/school) I get 47/48 mpg, which is fantastic, and I still love how it "shuts off" at stoplights -all my friends just think this is the coolest. Sure, if money is the only reason you're buying, you'll probably never make up the cost unless gas reaches $5 a gallon, but if you want a reliable car that's easier on the environment and still nice on the pocketbook (a $30 fill up lasts me well over a month) this car is for you.

Best Features

Gas mileage, of course. Plus Civics in general are just fun to zip around in!

Worst Features

There's only two things that could make it better: (1) being US- made (I live in Michigan, this is an issue) and (2) the silver metal around the gear shift reflects the sun RIGHT into my eyes sometimes - colored plastic, though not as pretty, would be better
