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


I have owned this vehicle for 1 year and have about 29,000 miles on it. The vehicle handles good. Gas mileage is good. I was rear ended at 10mph by a Jeep Cherokee and the vehicle suffered a lot of damage. I was told that the steel in the civic is not as strong as other vehicles I guess for weight? Any way not too impressed. Happy I leased it for 24 months and can't wait to get out of the lease. I suggest leasing and if you like the vehicle buy it after the lease is up, if you don't like it you can return it like I will. I need something fuel efficient and fun to drive this is not as fun.

Best Features

Handling/steering feel.

Worst Features

Vehicle is not as safe as I thought. Transmission is CVT which gives you great gas mileage but no passing power when needed. NO moonroof!!! WISH THERE WAS A MOONROOF! Going to try diesel.
