2008 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

I don't know if I can call this a full 'hybrid' because I can't cruise just on the battery. So you always use gasoline, but given the factor that the small 1.3L engine doesn't eat much gas you can get nice MPG. I drive around NYC mostly city. When it was warmer I did get 40MPG on a tank. Now below or near zero temperatures I get 35MPG.

Favorite Features

AUTO-Stop: this feature shuts the engine off when coming to a stop from 7 MPH. I like to challenge myself going down hill with the auto-stop engaged. Electric Assit: once I reach speed anywhere between 18-35MPH I let off the gas and coast with Assist and you can get 100MPG for short distances.

Suggested Improvements

Get the Hybrid system to work like Toyota's do. Let me coast in battery mode longer.
