On my first drive, I was a little concerned about the Hybrid's ability to merge with traffic but very glad that I took the second drive and bought it. No problem in merging. I agree with First Honda that the Civic (Hybrid too) is a really fun and peppy ride. Also agree on the driver's seat being extremely uncomfortable. I too am 5'8" and have back issues anyways but there is no lumbar support on this vehicle. No problem with visibility and foot seems to remain on the pedal fine.
Looks good, smooth ride for a small car, great gas mileage, and hopefully helping the environment.
Add power seat adjustments to driver side along with a lumbar support.
