Purchased As New
I bought this car new a month ago and could not be happier! I traded in my 07 Civic Hybrid. I drive 50 miles into Chicago for work everyday, mostly highway travel and I get around 45 mpg. It handles great on the highway and city roads. The design is real cool. Some people complain about the bar in the rear window, but I think its awesome to have when you have a high sitting SUV behind you at night, blinding you with their headlights, it helps block some of that light out. Side view mirrors are heated and always clear. The Navigation system is very easy to use and has always understood my commands. (My boss has voice commands in his 2010 Ford Fusion and he has to say a command 2 or 3 times) The GPS has tons of points of interest. The Eco Assist functions help train yourself how to drive more fuel efficiently. (You won't be blazing off at the stop lights but if you care about speed and pick up, why would you even be considering a hybrid?) It does come with a USB connection in the center console that connects your MP3 players to your Stereo system. I have an IPod so it is nice to have that kind of connectivity but the display for choosing what you want to play is very clunky and slow. You can not simply say "Play band, album, song" You have to manually select the band then album and song which can be annoying when you are trying to get to a band that starts with "W" and you have over 150 bands on your device. It scrolls through the names very slowly and updates the display slowly as well and when you want to change bands it brings you back to the beginning of the list so you have to do this all over again. The phone sync using blue-tooth is a great function as well but same as with the IPod, you can not simply connect and say "Call Name". You have to sync each number in your phone with the car or create a phone book listing with the car. The nice thing though is it records you saying the persons name and plays it back to you when you say "Call Name". I have never had a problem with it recognizing my commands or names I have said.
Over all this is an excellent car and I am very satisfied with my purchase.
