Civic Hybrid '03 ... great car
By P Humberson on
Vehicle2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)
Review40k miles on it now. If I drive it insanely hard I get 41 mpg. Normal around 48 mpg. If I pay attention, I can get 55 mpg (stay off the interstate to do this.) Acceleration is enough to merge well on freeways (okay, so it's not a Viper...). Handles fairly well and comfortable enough (didn't buy it to be a limo...). It's a great car and looks just like a regular Civic (a plus for me).
Best FeaturesMileage, interior layout, instruments,
Worst FeaturesHonda could have added a relay to switch off the head lights with the key or the "autostop". The trunk lid leaks rainwater into the trunk when opened. Interior lights need timers. Low drag disc brakes in the rear would be nice for those of us who change our own pads & rotors.
