So Far, So Good
By bernball on


2006 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


One of the first HCH cars sold in the Raleigh, NC area. So far, my highway mileage has been between 45-53 mpg; city 35-42 mpg (my commute is 99% freeway). Seating is quite comfortable and the cabin is fairly quiet. Engine noise is most pronounced during hard acceleration and there is some wind noise around the side mirrors. Acceleration is adequate and the CVT (transmission) is wonderfully smooth. Overall, much improved over the 2005 model. Me likey! A lot!

Best Features

Mileage is actually close to EPA estimates of 50/50. Comfortable driver's seat adjusts vertically and steering wheel telescopes and adjusts vertically as well.

Worst Features

Still missing the folding rear seat, resulting in reduced trunk space. No body-side moulding. Rear seating for 3 hobbits versus 3 adults. 2 adults would be very comfortable.
