Do not buy this car. Honda does not stand behind their products. The car will not get the mileage that is quoted at all. Previous years' models have an error with the controller arms that destroys the tires. You are better off buying a prius.
The controller arm is an isue on the Acura too.
I have close to 20k miles on my acura, and after 6 visits to the dealer, the issue came to be the tires.
Dealer "couldn't" tell me what caused it, but willing to sell me new tires at about 320$ a piece.
Thought Honda's might be different, since I was looking for an extra car.
I bought a brand new Civic 2011 and it has transmission problem. When engaging the gear it makes a strange sound. Only has 2500 miles and dealer says there is nothing wrong. Why dealers always lie?....Don't buy a Civic... Poorly made...After this bad experience I am not buying a Honda ever again.
