Great For The Commute To Work — This car is a great improvement in gas mileage from my last car. The increase in MPG alone is about as much as a car payment. Rides and handles well. Good value for a used vehicle. I imagine this would have been a great ride new.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Better than average gas mileage.

Cons: Lacks in power due to small engine with electric back up.

Solid Commuter — Honda Civic built as reliable commuter vehicle with great fuel economy. This car has quick handling and a sporty feel. The overall appearance of the car is clean and modern even for a 2008 model. The added navigation makes finding your way a breeze.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty feeling for a hybrid, comfortable drive, Honda reliability.

Cons: Rear seats do not fold down because of the hybrid battery location.

Cool Little Go-cart — The Civic Hybrid is an excellent road trip car and comfortable and quiet on the highway. The low center of gravity gives it surprisingly good handling for a car that get's great gas mileage. The car is designed to be a little commuter car so as such it's fine for up to 4 passengers but don't expect much room in the trunk

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: virtually no maintenance needed and gets great milage.

Cons: It's not designed for mountain or hilly driving, it's best suited as a commuter car.

Excellent City Vehicle, But Regular Highway Users Would Be Better Served By The Standard Car. —

Performance: First and foremost, this is not a high-performance vehicle, nor does it pretend to be. The car has no difficulty accelerating to speeds up to 35 MPH, but anything beyond that is met with a wait requiring a calendar to accurately measure. Freeway merges are downright terrifying, and the thought of passing another car will never cross your mind when you're behind the wheel. That being said, the Hybrid really shines in urban driving conditions, its intended purpose. Engine noise is barely detectable in city driving, where the continuously-variable transmission keeps the revs low, and the added torque from Honda's Integrated Motor Assist system gets the car up to speed in a very refined manner. Build Quality: It's a Honda. Fit and finish is near-perfect, panel gaps, interior rattles, and other issues that have consistently plagued American competitors, are, as usual, absent here. Appearance: The exterior of the Civic is actually quite pleasant. It isn't offensive, nor is it radical in any way, but it never looks wrong. The interior is a whole different story. With it's modern-looking two-tier dash design, digital speedometer, and prominent tachometer, the interior is a genuinely nice place to be. Seats are comfortable, if a little firm, and the back seat has plenty of room for two full-sized adults - three, in a pinch. Cost of Ownership: Though generous use of the accelerator is necessary for anything other than urban driving, the Civic never fails to achieve over 40 MPG, making it's 12-gallon fuel tank consistently last for more than 500 miles between fill-ups. Fischer Honda offers free oil changes to its customer base, meaning that routine visits to the dealership don't normally cost more than $10 (rotation, inspection.) Fun Factor: This is a light, nimble car, so it's relatively fun and engaging to drive. Cornering isn't as crisp or stable as in it's non-hybrid counterpart, a noticeable side effect of its increased weight and low rolling resistance tires.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent fuel economy, great for city driving, cheap to own and operate

Cons: Laughable acceleration, lackluster handling, CVT transmission makes highway driving highly unpleasant

A Civic Thats Even Better On Gas Than A Regular One!!! — I have to say that the power is a bit low, but its still fun in the turns.On the highway, this car is like any other civic, but in the city, its better on fuel. Plus you get a few extras with the Hybrid. The only draw back to this car is the really ugly mags and the smaller trunk.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a hybrid and people around you dont even know, like that prius and stuff

Cons: small trunk

Wont Buy Another One — being a hybrid,takes along time to warm up in winter,also find sluggish..no where near the gas mileage as promised, alittle boring..not worth the extra money for the non existant fab.mileage. Next hybrid,will be a toyota Prius..Honda..go back to the drawing board.ps.tires wear out at 18-25k, Honda knows this and does nothing about it

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: suppose to help the enviroment

Cons: mileage rated is B.S.

Boriing Quality — Smooth and quiet, but ever so boring. Hasn't had any specific repairs in over 100.000 km's, but hasn't got the gas mileage that honda promises... Appearance is very dull, but you don't see that when you're driving ;-) That's it: I haven't got anything more to say.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: sticks to the road very nicely

Cons: absolutely no charisma

So Good I Bought Twenty... — Fantastic hybrid, much better than a Prius. Honda have avoided Toyota's mistake of building a Hybrid and then designing it to 'look' space age.

Pros: Hybrid, Low fuel, Low tax, Low emissions...

Cons: Only a 1.4's performance
