Bought the civic without a test drive. Nervous...but was pleasantly surprised. Nice styling...drives well. Getting 44 MPG on 1st tank. With navi and other features, really lots of fun to drive. Also relieved that golf clubs fit. Kids also think "hybrid" is cool. I affectionately call it my nerd mobile.
Rides smooth...car has solid feel. Does not feel like a comprimise. Gas mileage is great and fun to monitor mileage while driving. So far Navi worked great.
