Do your Civic duty - in a Hybrid
By Bryan C on


2008 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I just went one year in my Hybrid - 18,006 miles. My low mpg has been 41 and highest was an interstate drive from Richmond to Miami at 56.4 mpg for the trip. Terms like performance and fun differ with this car. I have owned Audis before this and still keep a Miata in the garage. They are the traditional performance models. The Hybrid ranks high in performance for how it performs its mission - transporting me around in relative comfort with extremely good mileage. The car is slow to accelerate but if you adjust your driving habits (I have) the reward is peak mpg. I still get to my destination but I do not have to pass other cars or arrive first.

Best Features

1. mpg 2. split dash keeps digital dials in line of sight 3. auto a/c 4. reliability - not a single service issue except oil change/tire rotation. 5. did I say mpg? I LOVE going 550 miles on a tank! 6. CVT is sooooo smooth

Worst Features

increase lower lumbar support with new seats an extra inch of leg room would be nice
