Loved It — It rides smooth, has alot of space, great for family trips, or simply getting back and forth to work. Great on gas. Very comfortable. I would recommend this car for anyone that wants something that saves you money. Great miles on the highway and the street as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: everything was perfect

Cons: nothing

Honda Civic Hybrid — I like the gas mileage this car gets versus other cars. I like the way it handles pretty smoothly compared to other cars. It is a great family car and a great commuting car. I'm thinking of selling this in order to buy a newer hybrid.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great gas mileage

Cons: low power

My Stock Honda — its a stock civic cant expect much from it. well if i ripped out the engine put a b-18 red top in it with a nice sized turbo, over sized intercooler, put some 17's got new suspension coilovers, sway bars, a cage hell made it rear wheel drive. Im sure the performance would be a lot better then the stock 125 horsepower at the wheels it is now.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: nothing

Cons: its stock

A Great Environmentally Friendly High-performing Reliable Car — This car was a consolation car for me. I had hoped to find a Honda Insight (first generation), but settled for this. What a pleasant surprise I had. The Civic Hybrid is fuel-efficient, comfortable, reliable, intelligently designed, and fun to drive. It really exceeded my expectations.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: This car surprised me in a lot of good ways. The performance is outstanding. It actually accelerates better than the non-hybrid Civic, so it has plenty of power when it's needed. It's really comfortable, even on long drives. In fact, all of the ergonomics are the best I've found. The controls are all simple and intuitively placed. I never fumble around trying to find the stereo controls or climate controls. Even the cruise control is easier to engage than other cars I've driven. Handling is better than average for a sedan. Not sports car handling, mind you, but plenty good. And the mpg is remarkable. Ultra low emissions vehicle? Yep. Wow.

Cons: It's a good looking vehicle, but not what I'd call unique or sexy. Honda gave up some of the mpg compared to the first generation Insight (and even more for the second generation Insight). Why?

It's Another Hybrid! — It is small, and the ride is terrible. Mileage was pretty good, and performance was terrible.

Pros: Mileage, way better than the Escape, but it is way smaller

Cons: Really slow acceleration, even with IMA on!

2004 Honda Civic Hybrid FWD Review
It was not a safe car, so you have to be a safe driver. I never had any trouble with the car. I drove it very defensively and cautiously. I believe the reason why It lasted so long because I drove it conservatively and I changed the oil every 3000 miles myself.
