Don't buy a hybrid, get this car!
By brock69 on
2012 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Driving from Cincinnati, OH to Gatlinburg, TN this past weekend we averaged 41 MPG while having the sunroof open fully and all the windows open about 2 inches. From there we continued through the App. Mountains to Greenville, SC and averaged 43 MPG with the AC running and we were not doing anything crazy like turning off the motor. I remember the sticker saying this car was rated at 39.
We averaged about 73 MPH the whole way in mild to medium traffic.
We bought this car with 9000 miles on it for $17,000 and have added 16,000 miles in 6 Months.
No expensive or dangerous batteries to mess with and we can turn the ECON button off whenever we want to get more juice.
Features and connectivity
Eliminate the double dash readout. The only real issue my wife and I have is that the double dash is hard to see due to it's position. She is 5'1" and the steering wheel blocks her view. I am 5'11" and the separation of the dashes puts a reflection on the windshield almost directly in front of my eyes day and night.
