Civic Hybrid is a Solid Saver!

2006 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan w/Navi (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

I put my deposit down the week after Katrina seeing the price of gas escalate. I traded my smaller SUV because I'm just more of a frugle type of person. The CivicH (like all hybrids) rewards those that will adapt their driving style to the strengths of the car. It always has power to pass reasonably, you just will pay in average gas mileage if you using the power a lot. No big surprise there. Even in the Northeast my lifetime average mileage is ~50 flat. In winter, it's 42-46 (short drive to work) and in summer it's about 56-58. It has been totally reliable and handles my family of 4 with ease. Just plain an excellent Honda with a gas mileage advantage.

Best Features

Excellent handling when lightly loaded. Atkinson cycle and autostop get 60 mpg under light foot driving. Has power to pass when needed. Comfortable ride.

Worst Features

Larger electric motor for more efficient regenerative braking and more 'assist' on acceleration. Faster battery warm up in winter.
