- Good fuel economy, 20k miles in 6 month -- only oil changes and fuel expenses, smooth CVT
- Entry/exit for driver is "tight", occasional odd "squeaking" noise on braking
Calculated 40-46 mpg/tankful of gasoline, 130 round trip daily commute, quick and peppy engine, quiet engine, some road noise, convenient to use and pleasant to hear sound system, generally comfortable ride, only fuel and oil used in 20,000 miles, no fold down rear seat but my other car is a 3/4 ton diesel pickup so who cares, stylish lines, good sized trunk, would like a couple of extra electrical outlets, some visibility issues when driving, ABS brakes are great, wished it had heayed outside mirrors like the Canadian version, still has a tax credir unlike the Prius, have 2 now -- would buy another, Overall, love it but it ain't no truck!...read morehide

- looks like a standard car
- lost fold down rear seats
Standard looking car - down on performance. Lacks hachback and folddown rear seats. High priced local dealers want big bucks for this car.

- Fun to drive, easy to get in and out of even for a big guy.
- Door locks take getting use to and you must program them.
We are delighted with our Civic Hybrid. Gas mileage is great in the city and a little dissapointing on the highway in the mountains trying to maintain 70 MPH. That is to be expected for a small engine. Qualtiy is top notch, no glitches or complaints.

- PURE QUALITY, COMFORT IN LONG RIDES, LOOKS, GAS MILAGE.
- SOME BLIND SPOTS, LOOK TWICE WHILE BACKING UP. YOU SHOULD DO THAT ANYWAY.
I READ EVERY REVIEW POSSIBLE. YES, THEY ARE SO MANY GOOD REVIEW. BUT THE BAD ONES STUCK IN MY MIND. I DIDN'T EXSPECT TO LIKE ANY SMALL CAR, YET ALONE A HYBRID. MY OTHER CAR IS A SUV LEXUS WITH 168,000 MILES AND STILL GOING STONG. I DRIVE 40,000 PLUS MILES A YEAR.
I TEST DROVE THE HYBRED, PEDAL TO THE METAL... ON THE HYBRID, THE RPM ARE AT A CONSTANT HIGH WITHOUT CHANGING (LITTLE DIFFERENT), NO BIG DEAL. THE AUTO OFF WHILE STOPPED IS NEAT. WHAT IS GREAT IS THE COMFORT. THE HYBRID IS SOMEWHAT QUIETER THAN THE NON HYBRID (LESS ENGINE NOISE). IT'S FEELS TO ME THAT THE HYBRID DRIVES AND FEELS LIKE A $50,000 LUXURY CAR YET SPORTY. I ALWAYS PUT IN EXACTLY 10 GALLONS OF GAS AND I DOCUMENT EVERYTHING ON PAPER (THE TWO DASH COMPUTERS REAL TIME & AVE MPG SEEMS TO BE SOMEWHAT ACCURATE). I CONSTANTLY GET BETWEEN 42 AND 45 PER GAL (WITHOUT A.C). THAT'S CITY AND HIGHWAY. CITY I WILL GET MORE. BUT I DRIVE TOO FAST TO GET MUCH MORE.
SO TEN GALLONS GIVES ME 420 TO 450 MILES PER GAS TANK. WOW! NEED I SAY MORE. AND SORRY I DON'T UNDERSTAND THE FEW BAD UNBIASED REVIEWS. AS FAR AS CONSUMERS REVIEW MILEAGE RATING. THEY ARE WRONG. SEEMS TO ME THAT COMSUMERS REPORT IS MUCH TOO BUSY TO BE ACCURATE. I AM THRILLED THAT I BOUGHT THE HONDAY CIVIC HYBRID, I ALMOST DIDN'T. FOR THE YEARS TO COME WITH LESS CAR PROBLEMS HONDA IS THE WAY TO GO. YOU WANT IT ALL: RELIABILITY, COMFORT, AND GREAT GAS MILEAGE. GET THE HONDA. AND THE HYBRID IS THE CREME OF THE CREME....read morehide

- Excellent handling no front wheel drive over spin
- Lacking power neededs more horsepower
I'm pretty much please with my Civic Hybrid, I have driven about 18,000 miles but one problem my MPG avg. 36 to 42 mpg not 49 to 51 mpg's that Honda claims? I was told by a Honda Tech the mpg is just estimated and depends on the gasoline emission in each state. for example if live in Wash, D.C.the gasoline has more additives in it compared to gasoline sold in non-urban areas states like OK. I not feeling that!!!! when I pruchase this car I througth was getting true 49/51 MPG. but I won't cry over spilled mike.
Naw I won't my 49/51 MPG...read morehide

- Roomy car with a great balance between style and fuel economy.
- Visability... backing up and turning some corners very difficult.
Much nicer 'car' than the Prius - more solid and comfortable. Yet the 'Prius' is better on gas and has more advanced features.

- Excellent fuel efficiency, comfortable, quiet, reasonably priced
- A lot of nit-picky small issues, see comments
I just bought my Civic 9/29/07. The fuel efficiency blows me away (my other car is a Jeep Wrangler) - I took it on a 1,000 mile first trip that weekend & averaged 46 mpg in mixed state route/freeway/in-town driving. This has remained consistent for the next 2,500 miles that I've driven so far. Although pricier than a non-hybrid Civic, the price is reasonable considering the savings on gas, and the Civic is much prettier than the odd-looking Prius. I love the big blue dash, the feedback that keeps me from being a leadfoot (it's a huge dashboard - I bet the dashmat is going to be expensive!) I find the ride to be pretty quiet and smooth (especially compared to my Wrangler!), and friends say that 3 people of mixed sizes in the back seat is comfortable. Negatives - I live down a dirt road in the mountains of Northern AZ - the car rides low so I have to take the dirt roads very slowly(15 mph) to avoid bottoming out on bumps. Although I love the dashboard, I wish there were more details and less idiot lights - I like to know exactly what's going on with temperature, oil pressure, etc. And because of the long dash, I can't see what's directly in front of the car - adjustable seat height would have been nice (it may be offered, I bought directly off of the car lot). Sometimes, starting from the auto-stop is jerky. And the auto-stop doesn't always kick in. Having the car remain in auto-stop when putting it in Park would be nice, as would a remote starter feature. As I said, I bought right off the lot, and I really don't care for the velour seats - other options may be available, but I didn't look into them. No biggie, I'm going to put seat covers in. I wish the back seat folded down. One word of warning - the dealer put these plastic "paint protectors" on the door handles and door edges, and tried to price them at over $500! We negotiated but if you're thinking of buying one, be forewarned of this rip-off "option". I've really nitpicked here, because I would still highly recommend the Civic Hybrid to anyone who wants an attractive, fuel efficient car with good safety ratings....read morehide

- Average 50 mpg without AC running, 45 mpg during the summer with max AC, roomy interior
- Only nuisance is that the passenger door doesn't unlock automatically when car is shut off
Our average commute to work is 20 miles and the speed is a 55-60 mph freeway, so we are able to operate very effeciently. We do notice drops in efficiency when we have to drive on the freeway faster than 60 mph but we still get around 42 mpg. If you have 4 people in the car you will probably see the mpg drop to around 40. AC is a killer in the summer it costs about 5 mpg, also the vehicle will not auto-stop in the hot Arizona heat due to the outside temp being greater than 100 degrees.
Driving around town with frequent stops and starts usually comes out to around 42-46 mpg....read morehide

- Well built, fuel economy is great, 42-46 is what I average. Oil change is extended vs other cars
- sits low (I used to have a truck through), locks work weird, no place for loose change
Love the car. Currnetly save about $400 / month in fuel vs my truck. Leased a truck on min mile lease and the money I save driving the car pays the truck lease and insurance with a little left. First car and foreign car ever owned. Honda really does build a great car. Honda needs to add more color selections and better wheels....read morehide
