2012 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


With over 7,725 miles experience with this car, I am very pleased with it overall.
Highway trip mileage for 2,200 miles was 48.3.

Overall mileage with lots of city driving including many traffic lights and 6 months of Chicago winter temperatures has brought the overall average MPG down to 42.8 for over 7,700 miles.

Winter driving on snow and ice was not bad with these standard tires.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the vehicle and it has somewhat exceeded my expectations.

Best Features

Great highway only gas mileage 48.3 MPG, good handling, quick engine starts.

Worst Features

Electric front seats are a requirement with the top line model package and what I paid for this vehicle. Considering the vehicle's cost, manual front seats suck! They should be electric with a drivers seat memory provision. Way too much dash board reflection in the front window! The dash should be black or another dark satin finish and not near so reflective!
