Great, Reliable Hybrid
By Radar on
Vehicle2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)
ReviewI bought my Civic Hybrid new, and after six years have put in almost 89,000 miles. The mileage is great: I average 42-44 mpg with a mix of city and highway driving, and on long freeway trips I often get my mileage up to 51 mpg or better. I have only had two issues with the car so far: 1. The chrome covering on the door handles started peeling off and have cut my fingers on it a couple times. 2. In the last 6 months the car has started shuddering when I take off from a stop- -a common problem in Honda sedans from this year I hear? Still, the mileage is great and it has been otherwise very reliable. I'm keeping this for one more year, and seriously considering a new one to replace it again.
Best FeaturesGreat mileage; it looks like a real car; great stereo system for my needs; comfortable, smooth ride.
Worst FeaturesMore durable chrome on the handles; move the battery to a different place so the back seat can fold down; tranny issues?
