2009 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

Gave up my Acura TL after 7 great years. Was a little worried about "trading down" to Honda, but I couldn't be happier. Was looking for a commuter car, & this definitely fits the bill. It's very well built, nice interior, and easily fits 4 people (5 might be cozy, we haven't tried it yet). While not the most powerful car, it delivers what it needs to in most situations. It's quite loud around 3- 4K RPM (going up steep hills). But by far the best feature - 42MPG, as advertised. Got 51MPG today on a 74 mile drive. I don't mind sitting at stop lights as much anymore, since the car shuts off. It does lack in some "luxury" things (push button start, HID, etc), but for 22K, can't complain. Great car.

Best Features

MPG, MPG, MPG, Engine shut off at stop lights, Reliability / Build Quality, Exterior (Looks great in black with tinted windows).

Worst Features

Flying Saucer Wheels are just ugly (IMO) - some people like the "hybrid" look of them. I don't. Will be switching those out ASAP. Needs more options - current options are only nav and leather.
