The 2009 Civic Hybrid is a new, reliable auto that seats 4 comfortably, has great interior & trunk space for a compact and gets 40-50 mpg. I live in San Francisco area and avg hwy speed is 70-75. No noticeable difference in acceleration, merging or passing from the v-6 Chrysler Sebring I traded in. The only difference is no squeaks, shakes. Solid body and handling, like the interior and layout, very good sound system. Try it, you'll like it.
Styling inside and out. Solid feel. Low price. Great gas mileage. Superb value. Excellent depreciation, holds value.
Interior noise from the road is noticeable, but still much better than the Sebring (of course it was a convertible).
