2005 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I bought this car because it is so quiet. I test drove it on sevral occasions beforehand, and I liked the fact that even when the gas engine is running it is so quiet. It won't win any races, but that's not the intent of this kind of car. The intent is to be a quiet, economical car (that happens to be very environmentally friendly), and it accomplishes these goals admirably. This is the car I should have purchased when I was shopping a couple of years ago. I bought a VW back then, and though I loved it, it was unreliable. No longer my problem.

Best Features

Dashboard, fuel economy, very quiet vehicle, climate control (one setting, not dual), high reliablility, extremely bright high beams, CVT transmission.

Worst Features

Acceleration is mediocre at best. Move the battery pack in future models so the rear seat can fold down. Trunk space is very small, too. Stereo is nothing special.
