A defect free car right off the showroom floor. You WILL get the EPA rated mileage in warm weather if the car is driven properly. Cold weather decreases mileage significantly. Our Civic hybrid is fun to drive, and I liked getting 512 miles on 9.39 gallons of 87 octane (our first tank of gas.....on a new, tight engine).
The dash layout.......it's very easy to read. The fit and finish of the car is unsurpassed.
The Civic hybrid needs front seat lumbar support. The rear seatback should fold down. It needs rear cupholders and lighted vanity mirrors.
