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.
