- Terrible fuel efficiency for short commutes when cold
I need to voice my concerns to help others not experience my disappointment. I bought a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid, and discovered that the fuel efficiency is terrible (~22-26 mpg) when only used for short commutes (

- It gets decent MPG yet my 2002 Civic EX automatic is getting 40 MPG combined city and highway
- they can do better with regards to finish and milage - the regular civic is close to the same
(If you can't afford to buy this car, look into a 2002-2006 Honda Civic - the automatic is getting great milage too and the sticker price is less.

- Prius with a 1.5 liter engine make 50MPG & Civic Hybrid with 1.3 liter engine makes less! No GOOD
- Overrated and overpriced for its worth! Prius is a better to go!
The Honda hybrid is just one vehicle who just for the heck of it wants to sell a hybrid. Go for the pioneer of hybrids, go Toyota!

- Brakes are not strong enought to stop this car on a dime.
The 2007 Honda Civic Hybrid needs more design work with this car, when stoped on a hill it sometimes drifts backwards when you take you foot off the breaks, also when in stop and go traffic the engine will always cut off and on, it does not have auto head lights setting switch, the radio should stay on until you take the key out and open the car door then it should shut off it turned on....read morehide

- I like how the car rides, looks and overall preformance
- The interior is light and fabric it was a bad choice. I should have gotten leather
If you live at high altitudes (Denver) don't expect to get much over
43 miles/gallon. I drove to Illinois and on my return trip I was getting 47 miles/gallon all the way the the western boarder of Iowa and that
was at speeds of 65 miles/hour. As the altitide increase my gas milage decreased to 41-43 miles per/hour....read morehide

- There should be a law on false advertisement and penalize such law breakers!
- Honda hybrid gets only 32MPG, not 50MPG as advertised!!!
I was disappointed after several weeks of trying to duplicate the advertisement of 50MPG by Honda. The most I get is 35MPG and averaging at 32MPG, which to me is too far from Honda's number. This will be my last Honda!

- 39 mpg on a good day. 07 with auto trans
- can't drive with back windows down above 55 mph., ungodly ear pearcing presure from back of car
For the price of cars on the market with good gas milage, the civic hybrid was a mistake that I regret buying.

- Excellent fuel economy, Attractive design inside & out, Well built, High tech, Steady & supple ride
- Could use more power but hey this is a hybrid car-fuel efficiency is the objective here
We purchased this car about a month ago. We put in 1,000 miles and the fuel economy is great-averaging 45mpg city & highway mix. We get more mpg on highway closer to 50 and closer to 40 in the city.
In order to save gas, Honda uses a small 1.3L 4 cylinder engine, but the electric motor has 20 hp with lots of torque. Combined both gas & electric total 110 hp may not be a lot, but due to the electric motor torque, it gets going pretty good. I test drove both Civic Hybrid and Civic EX quite extensively and EX is quicker. But the Hybrid is not too much behind. People think that Toyota Prius gets far better gas mileage than Honda Civic Hybrid, but the fact is that Prius gets better gas mileage than Civic Hybrid by only 2 miles according to the actual users' mileage log. Average for Prius is 47, for Civic it is 45.
In my opinion, Civic is far better looking than Prius both inside and out, especially outside design. Prius does not appeal to me. There is much more personality in Civic over Prius. I test drove Prius as well. Compared to Prius, Civic rides more composed and supple. Steering in Civic is far better. Prius is too light and not much road feed back. Civic handles far better than Prius. On the other hand, Prius is slightly quicker due to more torque from the bigger electric motor Prius has. The price is another big factor. We almost bought Prius. Both Prius and Civic are about the same price range. But due to popularity and demand, Toyota would not come down on price as much as Honda did. Even though Prius' sticker price was a little lower than the Civic' sticker, Toyota offered almost sticker price. Honda went below the invoice by $500! We got ours at $20,800 including destination. Prius was about $22,000. And there is another big factor: Tax credit.
Toyota reached 60,000 number so the tax credit is phasing out. You can only get 25% of $3,100 Prius originally had. But Honda has not reached 60,000 units of hybrids sold so the tax credit is 100% as of today. Civic Hybrid gives you $2,100 federal and $1,500 state in Oregon. That is a total of $3,600 of credt. When you calculate this, you can buy Hybrid cheaper than Civic EX and save lots of money on gas not to mention you are keeping the environment clean. Go with Hybrid especially Civic over Prius, and that's my opinion.......read morehide

- trouble free operation
- I have an automatic with a emergency brake handle where my right knee should be.
My second Civic Hybrid had a 2005 (not enough top end speed).
I comute between Fort Myers Florida and Sarasota Florida.
Very expensive investment 2007 civic automatic. I drive 180 miles a day. I logged 10,000 miles since December 2006 mostly highway miles. I get aveage 41mpg with cruise control at 66mph. & speed limit in town. I am not complaining I just would like to see Honda make it more comfortable by moving that emergency brake handle to the passenger side as I must use a pillow to cushion my knee....read morehide
