2007 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT) Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
my 07 civic hybrid has 81k on it and I have had zero problems or complaints with this amazing car. It has the built in navigation and great sounds system all of it is voice activated. It also has the sunroof that is very nice and gets used alot. This car is so comfortable for me and roomy for the carseat in the back. The trunk holds alot for a smaller car. Very sporty dash and outside design. Have never had this car in the shop for anything. I do all town driving and get 40mpg every time. Ive seen some reviews that complain about this car and it has to be the owner being too rough. This is a great quality car and have no problems inside or out with it!
stylish, fuel economy, reliability, cool blue interior, cockpit design is very futuristic.
2007 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT) Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
I bought this car used with only 25,000 miles on it. It now has over 162,000. First battery went out just under warranty of 100,000 so fixed by dealer at no cost to me. Second battery did not even last 60,000 miles, warranty apparently expired as Honda refused to fix so I paid $2700 for the part plus labor, etc. Whatever $$$ I saved with hybrid technology clearly down the drain. Would never buy this car again.
Unlike my two previous Dodge Grand Caravans (1993 and 1995), I never had to fix automatic door openers, radio dials, speakers, and have only had to replace brakes once. Seems very solid and stable as compared to Chevy Cruze and Nissan Versa I rented while my 2nd hybrid battery was being installed. Nothing else besides the battery seems to be an issue, i.e. transmission, etc.

I use my 07 civic hybrid as a communter car to and from work. I average 35,000 miles per year and have had no problems. I do all the required maintanance ( most of it myself) and expect plenty of more miles to come. Intertior had held up strong with no issues whatsoever. All electronics work perfectly with no sign of impending failure. As for the IMA battery...I can tell it is going to go fairly soon. However, I do not plan on fixing it due to the nature of my driving. It will operate without an IMA battery, Just dont expect to get the accel youre used to. Overall, wish I would have purchased the non-hybrid version. But, I'll drive this one into the ground. Hoping that'll be a long time.
Everything but the IMA. Keep in mind, it's still a Honda.
Replace the batteries when they fail. It wont bankrupt your company, and it will regain the confidence in your customers.
Unfortunately at this point I would say do not buy a Honda car. I have been a loyal Honda owner for over 20 years but Honda has dug their own grave with this car and battery issue and their lack of customer support! Just go out and read all the issues that people have had with the IMA recall and battery issues for this car. Very unhappy customer.
Honda should stick to honoring their warranties and not ruin their good name like this.
We recently had the new software update that we got as a result of a recall. Now we have lost power and fuel economy. We recently read a number of articles that claim that Honda knows they have a problem with their batteries so made this update so that the car relies on the gas portion and not the Hybrid part. Sometimes we can't get up our own driveway. We called Honda and they said too bad even though our car was under warranty. We are very disappointed in Honda because they are only thinking about their bottom line (they don't want to buy new batteries) and not customer satisfaction or safety.
Traded Kia Sorrento during gas crunch... should have kept trade-in despite bad mileage. Honda is quite noisy all around & not at all comfortable on long drives. Getting in & out of car is a chore for taller(& older) people. Fuel economy(40-45 mpg) & acceleration are excellent. Switching back to SUV. I'd rather be comfortable & pay more for fuel. Civic hybrid makes a good commuter car.
MPG, acceleration, quick steering response, visibility, decent sized trunk. Handles quite well in snow even without studs or chains.
Rear seating, radio & road noise. Possibly the radio sounds better without the road noise. Raise the vehicle 6 inches, make it AWD & maintain 40 MPG.
I have had only a few problems with it. The electric motor at low speeds jerks the car until you stop accel or accel faster. I did not expect a sports car since this is a hybrid but driving it in the NYC (only got 25MPG in city) and highways (35-40MPG) a car like this is unable to get out of it's own way. This has caused me to get hit once since I could not get away from someone coming up behind me even when flooring it. I avg about 39-44MPG on my 30 mile one way to work and back. Car does not handle well even with new tires. AC does not seem to cool as much as I like, gets warm on auto stop. Road noise is horrible at 40+. Sound system is blah. Expected more overall for $26,000.
Interior, dash display, Blue color is very nice, headlights are good, good MPG, safe, very easy and predictable to drive.
Put a more powerful electric motor in, better sound, better handle ablility, better key transmitter, knock off some road noise, auto start, engine stays on when car is in park...Study the Prius hard Honda, you got a good car here but really need to step it up in every way.
I takes a while to get used to this gem of a vehicle. The electric motor acts like a turbo to assist the gas motor. I've had a few rattles and a window motor recall, but I've been thrilled with the 36,000 miles I've put on it thus far. Handling is superb. I can spin the tires, but I wish I could get a larger electric motor as an option to help with the 1800 ft. peak I drive over twice daily on my 45 mile commute. Mileage is controversial with this car; people report all kinds. For me, if I don't watch what I'm doing, I get a combined 42 mpg (over the last 2000 miles). If I pay attention, and keep the revs below 2500, I can easily get low 50's mpg. If I draft a semi, I can get over 70!
Sitting quietly in traffic with the gas motor turned off. You can hear the money coming out of other driver's tailpipes.
More driver's leg room is needed, and they really need to move the huge passenger dashboard forward to allow more movement in that seat. A larger electric motor will greatly improve acceleration without harming mpg, but I'd expect Honda to use one over time.
I have 15k on the car. AIR CONDITIONING IS HORRIBLE. I live in Colorado where we have had 20 days of 90+ heat. And when I drive the car home, the AC STOPS BLOWING COLD AIR whenever the car is stopped (w or w/o autostop). Honda manufacturing & my local dealer have confirmed "THIS IS THE WAY THE CAR IS DESIGNED. In order to get the AC to blow cold air, the engine must be above a certain RPM." Do you have any idea how uncomfortable it is to be sitting in the blazing sun at 5200 ft with no AC? It sucks. That's why I bought a car WITH AC. Turns out I must rev at the stoplights to have AC. Really disappointed with Honda. wish I had known this before buying.
MPG, size, comfort, ergonomics, safety
Window tracking problem (window rolled up outside of door frame, had to be replaced under warranty), AC IS REALLY REALLY BAD
I purchased an 07 Civic Hybrid. Not only is it gutless, but fails to get the advertised mpg. I get about 32 around town. Now that's double from my last car and I actually don't mind filling it up. Ups & Downs.
Just turned 10,000 miles on our 2007 Civic Hybrid. After having for about 8 months now I've grown to appreciate the car and what it offers. First, I find it comfortable and I'm over 6 foot. The AC systems works well. Ride remains good, although there is some road noise. I find the engine peppy for what it is, and that is a gas saver. You want fast acceleration - buy a Corvette. This car will go easily with the pack. Recent 1,200 mile trip averaged 47+ and 48.11 on the way home. And I ran with traffic. Car likes to be on cruise control. About 60MPH is the best speed to max fuel economy. I keep tires pumped to 33PSI and I use 5w20 synthetic oil.
GREAT fuel economy. Like the MP3 jack. HVAC system works well and the adjustable steering wheel allow for various configurations. Trunk size is fine as well. Tight steering and great visibility.
I need an auto-dim rear view mirror. Offer leather and other color interiors. Offer the same warranty in ALL states that you offer in Calif. Help with the road noise.
This is the third Honda that I have owned and once again I was more than pleased with its performance. Driving a hybrid takes a little getting used in reference to how quiet it is but it handles just as well as my Accord did. I drive about 120 miles a day and have really noticed a savings in gas and time at the pump! If you are conscious of how you drive you can really get up to 50 mpg. This is the best car I have ever owned!!
gas mileage, reliability, oil change percentage checker, comfort, digital gas mileage... the list goes on
More color choices
After Government rebate this car cost me $19,500. In return I received a car that is safe, comfortable, with very good handling and easy on the eye. I drive this car approx. 70% highway & 30% city and average 55 miles per gallon ( 50 in winter / 60 in spring & summer ). To get this mileage you MUST drive conservatively (Coast downhill, accelerate slowly and use the instant mileage feedback gauge provided in your display.) I've completely changed my driving habits from aggressive to granny overnight. As I watch all the SUVs pass me on the road I just think of my last fill up (61.5 mph). I drive 40 miles to work & back each day & save 1200.00 dollars a year compared to my previous car.LOVE IT!
Gas mileage!!!, comfort, safety, after government rebate same price (or cheaper) than an EX. Digital speedometer and instant mileage feedback gauges.
Electronic stability control and more color choices.
Don't believe the epa ratings on the car. According to the epa mileage is 41/45 according to consumer reports mileage is 37 combined. After 6500 miles I am averaging 51 miles and as the weather has warmed my last two tank fulls were 57 and currently 62!! You will only receive these numbers if you learn to drive very conservatively but the good news is the instant mpg feedback indicator make this easy to do. This car rides as smooth and quiet and handles just as well as my 31,000 dollar Nissan Maxima. Interior room is adequate, I have 3 teenage boys and they never complain about the backseat.Finally if you don't mind a blue haired elderly lady passing you uphill as you try to save mileage GREAT
Gas Mileage, Gas Mileage, Gas Mileage. Smiling as those Yukons and suburbans rush to the red light in front of me.Giving it back to the oil companies and helping the environment. Additionally car engine shuts off when you stop only to start again when you release the brake, this process is seamless.
Plastic panel where i rest my left arm is slightly dented (could be stronger). Hybrid hubcaps do not do the rest of this great looking car justice.
Purchased car for 30,000 miles/yr. Have put 32,500 miles on car in first 12 months. Great gas mileage makes it fun to drive. Slight "re-connection" jerk when going from electric to gas motor at traffic light in Autostop mode. Two tier dashboard prevents gauges from being hidden behind steering wheel. For me, seats are not very comfortable for 3 or more continuous hours behind wheel. I purchased separate back/lumber and seat supports which helped considerably. Highly recommend set of 4 snows for winter. Gas mileage dropped from 44 to 36 during cold months in the northeast. You'll get 44 mpg at 75 mph all day long. Only problem yet was a driver window that did not close correctly.
Gas mileage. No blind spots. Better than expected acceleration. iPod/MP3 connection.
Less noticeable transition from electric to gas motor at traffic light. Trunk pass through would be helpful for us skiers but understand battery is behind rear seat. Sunroof option.
When gas prices started moving higher and higher, I started thinking about upgrading to a hybrid. As a very satisfied Civic owner, I decided to try out a Civic Hybrid. It was love at first drive. The engine is extremely quiet, yet quickly responds and seamlessly transfers power between the gas engine and electric motor. I could not be more pleased with the gas mileage. On average, I get 48 miles to the gallon on my 22 mile highway commute. I would recommend the car to anyone who wants a more green ride, yet does not want to sacrifice comfort and style.
Steering wheel--much more adjustable than my '02 Civic. Also smaller in diameter which makes it easier to steer. Dashboard--I love the easier to read display and windshield which is raked at an extreme angle. It makes the interior feel much larger. Trunk size-huge-even with battery pack.
Center console is awkward to access. The hole to put the key in is obscured by the steering wheel and can be difficult to find at night. I don't like how battery performance (and therefore gas mileage) is lessened by colder temperatures in Colorado in the winter.
Honda is aware of an issue with the control arm, however, they are not giving a recall notice. I was told they are not making the owners aware of the problem, because it is "intermittent". I went in for an oil change and tire rotation at 14,000 miles, and was told that the inspection indicator on the dash was requesting that a full vehicle inspection be conducted. Since my gas mileage had gone from 41 mpg to 34 mpg, I agreed to pay the $150.00 to Sunnyside Honda in Parma OH for the inspection. I was told that the control arm was defective and that both rear tires also needed to be replaced as a result. The dealership would only replace the control arm and not the rear tires.
My life before I purchased this car.
To all that read this, I hope you will get the control arm checked. This is a grave safety issue and Honda Motors is severely negligent to its Honda owners. Personally, I feel their customer care philosophy, is customer care"less". FYI, Honda customer relations would not replace the tires also.
I am so glad I bought this car. I have a one-way 53 mile commute everyday. Most of it is on the highway, and this car is doing great. I get 43-46 miles per gallon; more if I don't push it over 70. It is not the most comfortable car in the world over longer distances. Other than that, the cockpit feel is pretty cool. I love the jack to hook up my I-pod (I've listened to a whole bunch of books on tape), and the trunk space fits my golf clubs and that's good enough for me.
Seating can be more comfortable.
I put a lot of miles on any car and purchased soley on the gas mileage. Traded in my Element which now I wish I still had. After driving the Civic for 9 months now, I am not so thrilled. Gas mileage average 38-42 mph, but the car is not comfortable at all. The seats are hard and very limited adjustments to try and make them comfortable. No cup holders in back or arm rest in back. What was Honda thinking. Basically, I feel this is a way overpriced commuting machine. Not kid friendly, not long trip friendly. Honda also falls short in the "fun to drive" catagory. Corners horrribly, tire squeal. Listen, I don't drive like Mario Andretti. I was suprised at the poor handling.
It's Green.... 40-45 mpg/highway on a warm sunny day with no wind.
Better seats. Cup holders/arm rest in back.
The car is decent, but doee not live up to expectations. I get around 35mpg city and 38-42mpg highway. My brother get 40mpg on average with the non- hybrid version. The hybridness on this case is not on par with Toyota's technology. I find several aspects of the car annoying. The transition from engine off to on causes the car to kick too much. The brakes will often slip when transitioning between friction brakes and electric brakes. On the reliability issue my windshield wipers recently refused to turn off (@ 17000 miles.) To summarize I would get the non- hybrid version.
After the first 1,000 miles I remain pleased with our purchase. The key to contentment may be realizing that "performance" can encompass more than just 0-60 times, 1/4 mile, top speed, etc.. Performance can also encompass things like mpg, and in my world where commutes rarely allow anyone to enjoy the typical performance characteristics, I have realized that mpg is one of the few characteristics remaining for me to enjoy on a daily basis and I am glad to have found a practical car that allows me to routinely enjoy it while providing very good qualities in addition to being a hybrid. In spirited and often stop-and-go traffic in my 90 mile daily commute I have averaged 39 mpg.
MPG. Styling. Being a hybrid version of a very capable model line up, rather than a purpose built, hybrid-only vehicle. Not standing out as a hybrid on the road. I prefer to be less conspicuous.
Provide a battery with enough power to move the car from rest without engaging the engine for stop and go traffic/low speeds. Make it a plug-in so I can leave with a full charge in the morning. Provide XM instead of "XM ready" in the hybrid no-nav trim. Improve the stereo wattage/speakers.
Having driven Honda's most of my life I had pretty high expectations for gas mileage. My 1989 accord would consistently get 32mpg in the city and I once got it up to 40mpg driving cross country. So I figured a Honda hybrid would get even better gas mileage. Talk about disappointing. If I really concentrate on my driving (gentle on the gas, avoid the brakes, etc) I can get the mpg's up to 34 in the city and low 40s on the highway. If my leadfoot wife drives it gets well under 30. After getting over the dissappointing fuel efficiency the car has been decent. It has a surprising amount of pickup and handles well enough to avoid dying in Los Angeles traffic.
Multiple power jacks and an aux input for the ipod is handy. Center console is convenient for stashing stuff.
Work on the fuel efficiency. In stop and go traffic the engine doesn't shut off as often as it should. Also, all electric under certain speeds would greatly improve performance in stop and go.
A great car for driving around town. Very underpowered on the highway and suffers from extreme road/wind noise at highway speed. The car is comfortable enough but long trips get very laborious because of the noise. The relatively low power on the highway requires drivers to plan passing and other maneuvers rather than simply jumping into another lane and passing a group of slower cars. If you are a "cruise-comtrol at 65mph" type, this may not be as much of a handicap as it is for drivers used to a car with much more power. I averaged about 44mpg at 75mph through hilly terrain. Bottom line: If you drive it like a hybrid and accept the tradeoffs, you will probably be happy.
Except for being underpowered on the highway, it drives pretty nice. Nice interior design. Gauge lay out and dash is very straight forward and easy to use. Doesn't look like a hybrid except for the wheels.
Needs sound isolation, bad! Needs a little more power for highway passing. A better stereo would be nice.
I've had the Civic Hybrid for a month, and I'm very pleased with its mileage (43 MPG over all), its comfort, its stereo, and its features. I thought about a Prius, but the Civic is better- -and a better buy. It's standard features are better--and you don't rack up another 3K in price to get good features. I used Edmunds to get a read, and these reviews really helped me. For example, at 6'1', I needed more leg room--and got it with the Civic. And golf clubs fit right in the trunk. Two kids in the back very comfortably. I drove an Accord in high school, and this Civic is the same size--very cool. Pick up is great when needed; but it's mileage gauge teaches you to be a smarter with gas.
Mileage and mileage gauge; engine shut off at stop...no wasting gas and pumping junk in the air; radio; cup holders and storage; dash; steering wheel controls; modern look; good A/C; programmable locks;
Flip key; back seat arm rest (child divider); Bluetooth; keep improving mileage
If you drive with gas saving in mind, slowly & patiently this car is for you. Little bit of a stiff ride,but seats are comfy. CVT takes a little bit to get used to. Been accustomed to having a vehicle shift to each gear,now this cvt is shiftless just the one gear constantly adjusting for best fuel mileage. Power is what you should expect from a hybrid. I think my lawn mower has more get up and go. Steers like a charm and no complaints yet. I honestly drive like a grandpa. This car suits me very well. Performance is not this vehicle by any means. I've owned a Camaro with a LS1 engine, I know power and paying for it at the pump.
Speedometer, feel, looks, predicted gas mileage, steering wheel mounted controls, automatic climate control.
Head lights, rims are ugly, small cargo area.
I love this little car. It is super easy to maneuver and so fun to drive. My only complaint is that it is a little underpowered for highway driving. There is plenty of power for city driving however. But that is the sacrifice you make when you buy the hybrid. But I do get 52mpg on the highway! City driving is more around 40 to 41mpg. Arlington in quite the hilly county so I am not surprised the actual mileage in city is not higher. I also love this car because at 6'3 the car is quite accomodating but I do have to have my seat all the way back. That means that the people sitting behind me are more than a tad cramped. Ergonomics are great and everything is within reach.
Opal blue silver exterior color, iPod hookup, auto-dimming rearview mirror, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, gas mileage meter next to the speedometer. Speedometer in line of sight, great gas mileage, auto A/C, turn signals in the side mirrors, and 8year/80000 mile warranty on the battery.
Offer the car in more colors. I think it should come in the green that the Civic GX NGV comes in and the tango red pearl and black. I would say no to the blue interior color, it may be unique but it makes the interior feel smaller. Also, There should be a second row armrest.
I was driving an '00 Ford Escort and when I read the "noisy ride" Consumer Reports comments, I worried about the noise level. Alas, the Civic Hybrid is comparatively silent! I am getting 50+ MPG in town (flat Florida) with AC off, 47 with AC on. On the drive home from Ohio, I got 48. The transmission is so smooth I never notice the "shift". Wife (leadfoot) loves the speedometer placed right in the line of vision with big, well lit numerals. Braking is satisfactory (Accord is better). Acceleration surprisingly adequate but if you lead foot it, you pay in the MPG dept. The seats are OK. It's really fun to see how your driving habits affect your fuel economy (MPG display).
Fuel economy!! Fit and finish; gas cap access inside; MPG continuous display. Fingertip cruise and radio on steering wheel. Floor mats included! Cool motor shutdown at stop. Trip odometer and trip MPG computer (after 2000 mi I still compute per tank mileage 3-4 MPG above the computer).
Leather seat option. Cushier seats (see Accord leather). Head restraints seem too far forward. Lumbar support adjustment for seats.
This car is amazing. I have driven the car nearly 8000 miles, mostly highway, but about 20% city, and I am averaging about 53 MPG. Really, that is what the on board computer says and when I calculate it myself, I get more like 55 MPG. Either way, more than what the sticker claims. I drive conservative, but on straight-aways and downhill I go at least 70 MPH, and uphill around 55-60, so I do not drive exceedingly slow. The car is fun to drive and handles like a sports car...a definite great buy.
Great interior, nice body style, great handling, MPG master
Better lumbar support in seats.
I needed a vehicle with great gas mileage, yet big enough to hold luggage, two keyboards, stands, an amp, a large box of equipment, a large dog crate and a bicycle. I can fit all of this and more into my little Civic Hybrid. While shopping I actually had salespeople attempt to load my music equipment into a Prius but it would not fit. This little Civic is a joy to drive, looks great, is quiet and comfy and has all of the safety features I have come to love and trust about Hondas. I get anywhere between 43 to 57 miles per gallon, and find this to be a zippy little machine. I previously drove a Chevy Malibu and loved it, but for the savings in gas the Civic wins the day. Sweet little car!
Beautiful car - I got the icy blue color - and of course the gas mileage! I also love that I can cram it full of stuff. The seats are comfortable, the headrests and seat belts are adjustable, and little storage compartments are everywhere. The blue dashboard lights-very cool! A great value car.
I would like to see a digital compass, a "miles to empty" gauge, and a light sensor to automatically turn on and off the headlights, simply because I'm used to that on my previous car. Be aware that the hybrid conserves energy by not having a lot of interior lights come on when you enter the car.
I have about 5000 miles on my Civic hybrid already and I am averaging 55MPG according to my calculations, and 53MPG according to the on board computer. I drive mainly highway miles with a little city. Car is grear, fun to drive, and handles great, and being able to drive 600 miles on one tank is awesome. Much better handling than the Prius, although I think it has a little better pick-up.
MPG, interior design, handling
Driver seat needs better lumbar support.
Great car,well put together,excelent road manners. The mileage thus far about 40-45 mpg. Changed my driving style. I think better than Prius, only regret not buying the GPS system. Highly recomended!
Mileage, responsive steering, solid build.
Lithium Ion Batts. coming, will upgrade, darker tinted windows.
We traded our Honda CR-V for a Civic hybrid to help offset the price of gas and so far so good. We have probably saved at least 2 fill-ups per month and have been averaging about 45 mpg, which sure beats the CR-V perfomance by more than double.
The dashboard is easy to read and the backlit blue LED makes it very easy to read. Love the design much better then the competitor hybrid model. Looks more like a regular car.
Better looking tire rims. The hybrid rims alhtough nice and functional, does look a little strange. A more sporty lookiing rear spoiler would also look better. Honda should make more cars this fun to drive.
I needed a fuel efficient vehicle that would hold up over time. I drive approx. 125 miles per day, mostly on the highway. So far, this is a wise choice. It meets the family's needs and mine especially when I fuel once a week now instead of every other day!
Decrease road noise. Option for heated seats without leather, do not put fabric on the center console, lights on visor. Add compass to the outside temp gauge on the console.
Excellent design both in and out. Very fun to drive and love to look at the MPG gauge to see how I'm doing. Have to turn a 180 on driving habits. Just bought the car last week so I can't say much about the mileage. Currently the computer estimated at 35 mpg w/AC blasted all the time in city drive. Can't wait to get up to the EPA estimate.
Digital odometer. MP3/WMA capable player. Little people friendly driver seat and be able to pull in/out steering wheel.
My Civic Hybrid 2007 has a little more power than my 2005 had, but the mileageis averaging 47mpg vs the 2005 average of 51. The new digital readout dash is fun to use and helps the driver to drive more sensibly. I drove Alligator Alley to Miami on a Sunday morning and averaged 57 MPG obeying the speed laws.
Dashboard readouts, sound system.
Improve the moveable arm rest in the front seat.
I owned a Honda Civic back in the 80s and loved it until I bought this Hybrid Honda Civic. It's fun to drive and I don't want to get out of it. Not to mention I get 38 mpg on the streets and 47-52 mpg on the highway. What a great car!!
Quiet engine, engine sleeps when you are waiting at the light. Comfortable and fun to drive. Excellent radio and love the dash.
Interior needs to be quieter. Exterior odors enter even when you have the internal recycle air on.
Wow!!! Gas mileage is unbelievable. Better than stated if you use your gauges and drive wisely. This car is fun to drive, takes the curves, quiet and roomy. A responsive car when you need it and a hybrid when you don't. And the IRS gives you over 2000.00 to buy one! What an unbelievable deal. With all the driving we do, the savings in gas is equivalent to almost half of the car payment. With cars like this it is time to go green!
Gas mileage, handling, dash.
Great hybrid! I have averaged 49.9 in the first 3200 miles. Great car! My only complaint so far is that I have been getting the IMA light, battery light, check engine light. The dealer reset everything, so we'll see. Otherwise, it is a great car! As long as you drive conservatively, it is not hard to get 50+ mpg. My last two tanks have been 51.5 and 53. Great car, good buy.
Gas mileage. Quality build. Interior has great finish. Exterior design is top notch!
More cupholders in back.
This car is the best I have ever owned. I am getting between 55-60 mpg, seriously. I am driving around 60 mph and try to coast as much as possible, especially down hill. This car handles great and is really fun to drive. Much better than the Prius if you ask me, and I have driven them both.
Handling, dash display is beautiful, and of course, MPG.
Driver's seat can have a little more lumbar support, otherwise car is flawless.
I have only had the car for a week, driven about 400 miles. The onboard computer says I am getting about 53 mpg, and I still have a little under half a tank left, so it seems like it is right on the money. And everyone says that it gets better gas mileage as you put on more miles, so believe it, this car can easily get 50 mpg if you drive like you are supposed to and don't try keeping up with the gas guzzlers going 75 mph on the freeway. I average about 60 mph on freeway and do both city and highway driving, and 53 mpg is the average of both.
Miles, miles, miles, no gas station needed yet. Handles great, beautiful interior, comfortable, fun to drive.
None! Really, none.
Once you've driven a hybrid, there really is no reason to drive a regular car again. The gas mileage is better, it's cleaner, and saves you money. Why anyone would turn down a hybrid is a mystery to me. I average 47 mpg combined city/hwy. Hybrids, like any car, force you to try to get the mileage by driving sensibly. Just by keeping freeway speeds under 70 rather than my usual 75-85 added 6 or 7 mpg to my average. You have to want it and be conscious of it to achieve the high mpg range.
Ergonomics are great. I love the 2-tier dash and driving position. The cupholders are nice and deep and storage options abound. The magnetic gray metallic paint also looks awesome in the sun. I'm 6'4" and I have plenty of leg/hip/head room even for long drives. Much more room than the Prius.
I would trade some weight for a larger battery that would propel the car without the engine at low speeds. Also, the stereo is pretty unimpressive despite its ease of use and aux jack. It needs a serious dose of oomph. The Prius and Camry hybrid offer great JBL sound systems. Honda should also.
The more miles the car gets, the better miles per gallon. Yes you have to drive like Grandpap to receive the below. At 55 miles per hour when it was new: 53 highway and city mpg. At 5 months old: 69 highway/59.5 city mpg. I never let the tach go over 3k rpm.

I absolutely love the new Honda Civic Hybrid. This Civic rides much better than by 2003 and is a reliable car. Never had a problem with it and I average about 43 miles to the gallon.
Mileage, interior/exterior designs.
The more miles the car gets on the odometer the better gas mileage is achieved. Important point The car's computer gas mileage is off by 4-5 miles. In a hybrid, the trick is to drive like a grandmother.

Just purchased my new Civic hybrid. What a pleasure to drive! It has been years since I have owned a car that was so much fun to drive and I spent quite a bit more for it. This car is a Hybrid when you need it (around town) but a sport car when you need to corner or pass with speed. The interior design is just plain fun It is also great to be doing something good for the environment and my pocketbook. Overall after the tax credit, this car is as good a buy as any other Honda. What a treat! Don't know what there is to shy away from. I am more that pleased to have decided to make a statement and go green!
Great handling and interior design.
More uniform seat fabric.
To sum: We liked our 2006 HCHII so much we bought a 2007.
Fuel efficiency, relaxing ride, ergonomics, handling.
Sunroof, stability control, heated seats.
I was skeptical of the mileage, but I was getting approximately 40 mpg in the coldest part of the winter and 42 mpg when the temps were in the 40s. Recently the temps were in the 50s - 70s, and I've been getting 49 mpg. The Civic is my commuter vehicle and I drive 42 miles to work and back each day on country (45 mph) and highway (65 mph). I'm in Ohio so it's generally flat. I also do not accelerate rapidly.
Fuel efficiency. The dashboard is great for providing real-time feedback on how you're doing in the fuel efficiency area.
I would like the vehicle to have dual visors as sun is a problem sometimes. Even my old Ford Taurus had them.
Just picked up my hybrid last week so it is too soon to know quality/reliability. Hoping Honda's reputation for building reliable cars holds true. Car is fun to drive and so far I have been getting about 35 MPG in town (I almost never do highway driving). Car takes a little getting used to as the hybrid system can be a little jerky at slow, coasting speeds as the regenerative braking system charges the battery. Other than that the hybrid system is seamlessly integrated and the result is a nice ride with ample (not great, obviously) acceleration. The seats are a little uncomfortable and really lack lateral support.
Two-tier dash with cool-blue back lighting is sharp. Roomy cabin. Side curtain air bags for front and rear passengers. Nice handling. Great fuel economy.
Driver seat is not comfortable. Not looking forward to my first long road trip. My last car was an Infiniti FX35 and those seats were great. Can't see front of car (or any part of hood) from driver's seat. Just a matter of time until I hit one of those parking blocks.
When I first drove the hybrid, I expected it to be less powerful than a regular Civic. I was pleasantly surprised that it feels just as powerful to drive. A lot of new features in this years model.
Base radio has no power to it, even with bass turned up to 6 you don't hear any bass at all. It requires an upgrade to include bass, which is ridiculous, and should come standard.
great little car. Get 45 to over 52 miles per gallon. Most of my driving is around town but it does handle well on the highway.
Very good car overall, however, I would have expected to get no less then 45 mpg, I have some local and some highway driving. On highway, I cruise at 69 mph. I called dealer, he said my mpg should improve after 7500 miles, currently I have 3200 miles.
Looks, handling, overall appeal
I love my Honda Civic Hybrid. Its fun to drive and not nearly as slow feeling as some reviewers have said. The CVT is hard to get used to...but give the car such a smooth feel and tends to make me drive faster. The interior color choices could be much better, but the finish is great. My gas mileage has been amazing. I actually traded in my 2006 Honda Accord V-6 for this car and do not regret it one bit!!! Fun car and great gas mileage.

Better seats More hybrid feedback
Many people get caught up in the lure and appeal of exotic appearance, much like face powder in a world of cluelessness. But alas, there is hope. Honda's Civic line is superb. Honda has delivered a smart looking package, brilliant engineering, comfort, amenities, and the reliability that is beyond reproach. I have two new Civics - an EX and a Hybrid. They are wonderful and best of all is knowing that like my Honda's in the past I am good for 150,000 to 200,000 miles without a worry in the world. Thanks Honda. As for drivers of mega-Detroit wheels, please tune in - and - get it. It makes a difference in your total cost of ownership, the fuel bills, and the replacement cycle. Look, buy, relax.
Value. This is a total satisfaction owner - with 2 new Civics - and everything about them exceed my wishful expectations. A superb job Honda.
I have an EX and a Hybrid - the ride on the Hybrid is far superior. Whatever the difference in the suspension - make it standard on all Civics.
I bought my my civic hybrid after reading all the reviews. The gas mileage is lower than the sticker mpg, about 43 mpg, but still a lot better than my last car. It is definitely not for people who like speed. It'll get there, just in it's own time... I test drove a 2006 with the spongy breaks and crazy abs. Honda must have read the reviews too, because they've fixed the breaks for 2007. A great little car, excellent visibility (which seems to be a problem in most new cars!). I'm 5'2" and am comfortable, my husband is 6'2" and comfortable.
Purchased it to get CA carpool sticker before they disappear. I have been very pleased so far. With 4 tanks of gas, I seem to get around 45MPG overall. The dash calculated values are a bit lower than when I do the miles divided by gallons purchased calculation. If you keep under 70 mph, you seem to get closer to 50 mpg. If you go closer to 85 mpg, it goes down into the low 40's. Stop and start commute traffic gets you in the highto mid 40's. Nothing I do results in the mileage leaving the low 40's. The radio sounds great with my Ipod. I'm not thrilled by the tranny but it seems to get the job done in terms of mpg. Acceleration seems fine as long as you don't stomp on it. Overall, I'm pleased!!!
Happy with Dash, radio, and interior. I have a Garmin Ique that sits perfectly along side of the speedometer (like it's made for it!) Configurable auto door locks are cool. Visibility is nice. I enjoy feeling "smarter" than the other commuters when my engine is off!
I get somewhat annoyed that the engine will not shutoff when it's cold. My first stop from my home is the Starbucks drivethrough. It won't "autostop" until the temperature reaching normal operating temp. I wish this was my choice, not Honda's...
The car feels well built.This model is built in japan, better quality control and fit and finish i feel. driving is very different, than my 2001 civic i traded in. U do have to learn to drive with a gentle foot on the gas. its almost a glide and coast approach, looking ahead at lights and traffic to let off gas as much as possible.This seams to give best fuel economy. With engine shutoff at every stop, car does take 2seconds to respond and go. Seats are supportive but seam too narrow for me and center console takes up leg room for stretching. Gauges are nice and easy to read but if your short u will see them reflect on upper windshield glass. Too much road noise, quiet tires might help.
Exterior style is sleek,build quality,digital lighted gauges,great design of hybrid engine for saving natural resources and air pollution control. ipod port with good cd/radio system. good wide cup holders. alabaster silver metallic paint quality. included security system. will update in few weeks.
Would like lumber adjustment for seat.Don't put cloth door armrest, will show dirt and wear.Need to light up shifter markings, cant see at night. Increase batteries capacity to run more on electric motors. Build more so availability and price comes down. Thank you Honda for making a great product.
I waited almost 4 months for my hybrid, and it was worth the wait. I've had it for 2 months with almost 3000 miles and no complaints. I really like the gauge layout, I'm not bothered by the emergency brake handle, and I've had several cars that I can't quite see the front of from inside. I was a little concerned about poor acceleration until I passed someone my first day with the car with no problem. I wasn't sure how it would do in the Minnesota cold...no problem. This car teaches you to drive efficiently. Mileage was around 50mpg when it was warmer, but dropped in the cold. I'm not sure if global warming is real, but in case it is, I'm trying to do my part to pollute as little as possible
Great looks, roomy interior, excellent build quality, sports-car handling, and I really like the hybrid system. The federal tax credit makes it no more expensive than an EX.
Only one thing. I don't like the wheels and tires on hybrids, so I switched to EX wheels.
