- Gas mileage and that is about it
- car spudders at 55mph and engine in noisy
I have had the car into the dealer going on 7 times for a problem when accelerating around 55 to 60 mph. the dealer doesn't know what is wrong. the first 4 times they told me that nothing was wrong and that it is my imagination. If they ever manage to find the problem and fix it, I am trading this piece of juck in. This is the second Honda that I have owned and the second Honda that I have had problems with. The only plus to the car with all the problems that I have had is that I still get between 45 and 50 mpg....read morehide

- Good Fuel economy and emmissions
- With the window down, water will enter the cabin from the roof.
I bought my car on 3/06. I have 8500 miles mixed between city and highway and I am average 45mpg. I don't see how these other people are only getting low 30's. You do have to change your driving style. Coasting increases your mileage as well as staying under 70. You can't mash the gas all the time and expect 50 mpg. I am happy with my car at this point. Yes it will cost a few thousand more than a regular civic but this country needs to move to more fule effecient vehicles!...read morehide

- Great gas mileage, solid car, smooth ride
Okay, if you paid 29 grand for this car you are a moron, first off. I bought my 2004 Civic Hybrid (manual trans) and paid 20 grand. Secondly, if you drive like a maniac in any car you will get lousy mileage. Third, if you're running the a/c nonstop you will also get lousy mileage, again in any car. That being said, I average 46 MPG for pretty much every tank I've put in the car. I drive mostly freeway, and average speed for me is about 70 MPH. So I don't know what these people are doing to get such awful mileage, but I feel bad for the car!...read morehide

- headroom, legroom, styling, suspension, quiet
- can't see the hood when driving, headlights are dim
I got 41 mpg on first tank of gas with mixed driving. I've driven a small car (Corolla) for 6 years before this one and always found my MPG was higher at around 70 mph instead of 55 mph.
I suspect that the mpg on my Civic will be higher in the next few months once I break it in and start driving 70-75 mph....read morehide

- Comfortable, roomy, great gas mileage(compared to the average car), great performance!
- Wish the lights were automatic...
I love my new car! It's very slick looking and that's what I look for in cars. The appearance on the outside is awesome and fits my young age personality. I would recommend this car to anyone looking to buy a Honda!!!!

- Mileage, surprising power
- Radio and air conditioning controls complicated, not intuitive
I've owned my 2006 Hybrid Civic for about a month and am on my third tank of gas. My mileage for the first two tanks, during warm weather when i always had the air conditioning on, was about 42- 43 mpg. I tried to drive conservatively, but i couldn't get better than 35-40 mpg in city driving (the majority of my driving); i could get close to 50 mpg on the highway.
The weather cooled off, i stopped using the air conditioning, and my mileage has shot up. I'm averaging over 55 mpg on this tank, most of which has been city driving.
I like simplicity and am not into multiple features; i want things intuitive. I was using the temperature setting for the air conditioning, set at 72 or 73. Re-reading the owner's manual, i found out this is very inefficient. It's more efficient to put the temperature setting as low it will go and run the A/C only when needed. Not running the A/C has made a huge difference in mileage for me....read morehide

- Roomy interior for a compact car. Good dashboard design with headsup display
- Sound system could be better. Need more interior choices
I purchased my Civic about 2 months ago. 2500 miles and I'm averaging 45 mpg, not bad when you consider I was getting 25 in my Mercury Cougar. I'm really enjoying this car. For a small engine it actually has some "get up and go".
This seemed like the right car considering the 80 mile round trip per day to work. I figure I'll breakeven in about 2 1/2 years with the tax credit....read morehide

- GREAT MPG, Carpool Lane Friendly
- Back Seat does not fold down...small price to pay for such a great car!
From day one...this car has performed great. We consistantly get 45-47 mpg in town and 55 on the highway. It is a 5 speed...which gets better fuel economy than the automatic. In california...we get to go in the carpool lane and that alone is worth the price of this car. Most importantly...I feel I am doing something good for the environment...read morehide

- Ride in car pool lane (CA) * Good handling * Good looks
- Does not meet EPA mileage estimates * Road noise
There seems to be some discrepencies on the true mileage that a HCH is getting. I'd like to share my personal experience. I drive a 2004 model and after 60K miles, average only between 33-35 mpg! My mileage is based directly from the odometer MPG read out. My HCH always carries about 10 pounds of my "office" supplies around and a Yakima bike rack on top. My driving is mixed about 50/50, city and highway, and I don't accelerate fast. I usually keep at 65-75 mph on the freeways. I use only 87 gasoline. 80% of the time I drive with the A/C on. I've tried different oils, a new air filter and tried different ways to get the most fuel efficiency out of my hybrid, but still I get about 35 miles per gallon at best....read morehide

- 32-35 MPG average. Nice design. Handles well. Plenty of power.
- Nowhere near the advertised fuel economy. Pricey.
Great looking inside and out. MP3 CD capable Stereo. Cool ergonomics. Excellent warranty on Hybrid components.
