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


Review

Great auto for 100 mile r/t to work. Comfortable for 6'2, 230 lb guy. No repairs as of 35,000 miles, except for service. Handles good in wet conditons but poor in snow.


Best Features

Great on gas mileage, 44 mpg, which as expected is under the EPA's test of 50 mpg.

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


Review

I like the car a lot. Not a lot of power, but solid. The sticker says 47/48 mpg but I average 38-42 mpg consistently. I can't imagine how these other owners are getting over 50 mpg unless they are driving only downhill and with no wind resistance... I wish I really got 47/48 mpg as it says on the sticker. I really baby the car and am aware how to obtain the best mileage possible, but it just doesn't happen.


Best Features

Instant mpg display.


Worst Features

More power. Truly the mpg it is advertised to have would be nice. That's why I boought the car in the first place. Feels like a letdown or that Honda is trying to entice people to buy it with these higher than realistically attainable numbers.

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


Review

I have had my mt hybrid just about one year and I am highly satisfied. Over the 30K I have driven it, I am averaging 51.4 and have had tanks at 56 or more several times. I never have problems with acceleration as I keep an eye on the battery gauge and love trying to make one tank of gas exceed the next. I strongly recommend changing the air filter even before recommended interval, as a modestly dirty filter will drag down mpg by 10 percent.


Best Features

Mileage. Tranditional body style.


Worst Features

Cupholders are in a useless spot. MPG indicator "tops" at 120 mpg.
