2009 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I have the car now for 3 months, fuel economy exceeds the sticker rating. On the down side you have to be careful when stopping, at low speeds it surges and I would find it difficult to park in a tight spot. I finally got to go on a trip, I- 84 with its ups and downs, the gas engine strains trying to do 65 up some of the hills, it's no power house. And my back was sore after a 300 mile trip, gosh when I go to FL in fall I will need dr to work on my back, I guess it's a car for the younger set, I am 63 and went from a CRV to this. On the plus side it uses half the gas the CRV did. It's too bad Honda can't find a better place for the batteries, I miss the fold down back seats.

Best Features

Dashboard is great - everything you want in front of you, good job Honda. Fuel economy is great.

Worst Features

That's why they have engineers, but it would be nice for trips to have fold down back seat.
