After one month of driving my new Civic Hybrid, I am completely satisfied with my purchase. The MPG is 40 in town and 45 on the Hwy as advertised without having to change my driving habits. The fit and finish are excellent. The ride is quiet and comfortable. The instruments are all easily accessible.
Fuel economy, appearance, fit and finish, drive and ride. XM Satellite radio. Low environmental impact.
The AC needs to be able to operate while on battery power in the same manner the Toyota hybrids do. In the Texas heat the motor has to often run at halts to keep the AC going. When on battery you are only recirculating interior air and it heats up quickly inside.
