2004 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

We bought it in December, took off for
Phoenix, Albuquerque, no faults, ran
great, Cruise control is awesome, best
process control system i've ever seen
in an auto. The A/C is great. The
economy mode and cruise control with
A/C set on 70 degrees pulled up the
8000 ft mountain going into San Diego
CA with no overheating, passing
everybody else with A/C off and
overheating still.
Milage varied on 3000 mile trip from 33
to 39 mpg depending on speed and wind
direction. It takes no thought to
drive, just push the gas pedal. Stable
and sure-footed in rain and wind, even
with sligh


Best Features

The A/C Temp control is amazing. Blows cold almost instantly after starting, If set to max cold, will chill you in a minute. It cycles between vents to compensate for sun in one side. Just set the Temp. you want and it does it. The cruise control holds speed better than any car I've


Worst Features

Hard to adjust drivers seat to get front edge down to not pinch nerve in right leg. Need to be able to tip front seat cushion down in front.

Review

One thing that no one mentions about
this car is that you cannot roll the
back window down because you get this
tunneling effect. By this I mean, the
wind is going through the car and you
feel like you are going through a
tunnel, your ears seem stopped up, the
noise is really bad. Now that I have
taken it to the dealership, they tell
me that if you roll down another
window - it eases the noise. That is
not true because I tried that already.
The cup holder does not come out so it
is a pain to wash. The car runs great
and I love the savings on the gas -
especially now that prices have gone up.


Best Features

Gas milage Size of car


Worst Features

GET RID OF THE TUNNEL EFFECT OR GET RID OF THE WINDOWS IN THE BACK SEATING AREA. MAKE THE CUP HOLDERS REMOVABLE.

Review

I just bought the car and I can't
begin to explain how wonderful it is
to own the car. I traded my gas
guzzling suv in and I have saved a ton
of money in gas just the first month.
In fact, I have driven 400 miles and
have yet to fill it up! That should
speak for itself. The car is fun to
drive and handles really nicely. The
seats are a little firm but not
uncomfortable.

2004 Honda Civic Hybrid Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Review

I waited for and sought out this car,
wanting a hybrid and having driven
Hondas for 30 years now. Not enough
dealers around here carry them. Many
people waiting for them. I have always
had hatch backs and loved them for
carrying stuff. Don't know whether or
not a hatchback could get as good
mileage.


Best Features

gas mileage (47.6), smooth and quiet, easy on environment, doesn't use gas when stopping at lights, trains, etc., cute looking, makes me proud to drive it! Has great pick up!


Worst Features

Rear windshield wipers, greater range of colors.

Review

I been a chevy man since 73 but last
year I traded my S10 blazer in for a
Honda hybird civic. After 25 years of
being a mech. and working on most makes
and models I enjoy not having to work
on my own, not only that but instead of
filling up twice a week at about $30 or
so for fuel now I fillup once every two
weeks or so my average driving to work
a day is 40 miles (one way) not only
that but no tune-up till 110,000 miles
and oil changs 2000 not any more now
it's 5000. The ride is more comfortable
than most autos the same size. the only
thing I don't like is I can't tow
anything with it but I'll survive


Worst Features

it would be nice if I could tow a small bike trailer
