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


I didn't really choose to buy this car,
since I wanted a manual transmission
hybrid (the Civic is the only such
model), but I am absolutely happy.

The performance is decent, certainly no
different than standard Civics or
similar class cars. However, I
probably would have paid more for extra
horses because acceleration above 60
mph or when driving with a full car is

Gas mileage has lived up to my
expectations -- 45-55 mpg, which leads
me to think any complaints out there
are from drivers who accelerate too
fast, go over 80 mpg, etc.

All other aspects of the car are
identical to regular Civics -- a well
balanced and economical sedan.

Best Features

600+ miles per tank of gas! Under ideal driving conditions (flat, 60 mph speed, etc.), I get 65 mpg. Dash lights are stylish, as is the mini- spoiler and antenna. Overall feel of the car is solid for its size.

Worst Features

Major things -- rear suspension a bit loose, wheel design is chunky/ugly, extra horsepower (even if 5 mpg less fuel efficient). Minor things -- extra armrest for passenger, cupholders in back, windows don't shed rain that well, trunk space is a bit smaller than standard C
