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


Bought in Nov 07 with Nav and XM. More comfortable than the BMW 335 I looked at. More comfortable seats; more headroom. On the Highway at 65 mph I get 46-50 mpg, depending on hills or flat road. In town with stop and go I get around 30 mpg in the winter and 36 in the summer for short trips. Hybrid engines need to be warmed up for good mpg. (My wife's 2006 Odyssey gets 14-15 mpg in town and 24-25 on the highway.) The mpg calculated by the number of gallons of gas I use and miles I drive is 1-2 mpg higher than that shown on the dashboard mpg computer. MPG depends on weather, avg speed, hills, frequency of stops and starts, how soon you get off the gas before you stop, and how you accelerate.

Best Features

Comfortable, high mpg, good sound system, quiet.

Worst Features

Can't think of any that wouldn't cost more money or reduce gas mileage.
