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


We wanted to go green. We didn't know how we'd adjust coming from 2 new Audi A4 quattros (a 98 and 05). We got this and we don't regret it. It has enough zip. It's comfortable & roomy enough for 4 adults. I've only filled the tank 5 times. The first 4 I averaged about 36/37 MPG. This last one I did about 38 MPG. (402 miles on 10.5 gallons). Not bad comparing to my Audi but not the 40/45 advertised. The car was bucking this afternoon. Don't know what it is. I have about 1,500 miles on it now and it's not the first time it's happened. Overall I like the car and like the economy payment and low gas cost. We must all conserve folks. Buy economical. We liked it better than the Prius.

Best Features

Economical. Partial Zero Emissions. Comfortable. Lots of little storage compartments. Gas mileage. IPOD outlet. Roomy for a little car. Auto shut off at lights.

Worst Features

Add a trunk latch on truck. Don't like the long/deep dash. The radio is lame. Should offer more color options.
