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


Review

I drive a lot and wanted a car that
would perform well and be reliable as
well as fuel efficient. I am a devotee
of Honda since buying a 9 year old
Accord in 1995 that a friend of mine is
still driving. The Civic Hybrid fits the
bill. It's fun to drive (a little slow
out of the gate, but passable) and it's
even more fun to see it get more than
600 miles to a tank. You can't be that
in these times. I will alway be a Honda
satisfied customer.


Best Features

I love that the car shows you how you're doing on gas mileage. The dashboard was distracting at first (too much to watch!) but now, I love it.


Worst Features

They really, really need to find a way to put a sunroof on this car. There's got to be a way to move the antenna to accomplish it. The car would be perfect then.

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


Review

the engine turns off when the car is
still, so when you are parallel parking
on a hill the car stalls and rolls.

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


Review

Although my Civic Hybrid does not get
quite to mileage advertised, it
consistently gives me mileage in the
40's and in the high 40's in highway
driving. It is solid and has an
excellent safety rating--which is one
reason I chose it over the Toyota Prius.
Its design is not pretentious, which I
prefer.


Best Features

Convenience of controls, front wheel drive, comfortable for four adults, and surprisingly roomy trunk space.


Worst Features

The design should permit the rear seats to fold down.

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


Review

As we pass the gas stations we laugh.
Our Honda Hybrid gets 45 MPG and rides
like a dream. It is fun to drive
also. We really get a kick out of
listening to the engine stop at stop
lights. If you have a hybrid you know
what I mean. Tee Hee


Best Features

Gas mileage and it is a nice looking car.


Worst Features

Leather seats

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


Review

I get 47mpg highway, 39 city. It took
a little getting used to driving a
hybrid at first. The engine 'autostop'
was a shocker. Who would ever think of
an engine shutting off while stopped in
traffic? And when entering a highway,
going uphill was also a bit tough. In
order to get more power, you shift into
2 for a few seconds, then just shift
back into 1. (This is with an
automatic civic sedan.) A few things I
miss from my 2002 Honda Civic EX are
the color. . I also gained
alloy wheels, side impact airbags. In
short, I love my honda hybrid!


Best Features

Riding express lanes (alone) to work, and of course, the gas mileage and quiet ride.


Worst Features

A few things I miss from my 2002 Honda Civic EX are the navy blue color and sunroof. However, I gained alloy wheels, side impact airbags.
