Cons: rugIts great
Same old stabilitty from Honda
Pros: the arrangement of the front cabin to provide plenty of room and visibility
Cons: that it has drum rear brakesI just bought this vehicle, but so far, so good--responsive, tight handling, good gas mileage in mixed driving (34 mpg), comfortable to drive, and has the stable presence of a larger car, though it is really a compact. It does not handle as sporty as my old VW golf, but hopefully will be more dependable, and continue to provide better gas mileage. Acceleration is slightly sluggish around 35-45 mph, and again at about 55 mph, but it hums along fine once you've reached your intended speed.
2008 Honda Civic SI sedan
Cons: Overall qualityAfter 2 years/42000 miles I can say that Honda quality is not as it used to be.Cheap looking plastics/2 broken visors/odd pull from side to side when shifting is not Honda quality.But for the money it still beats all the competition.Performance/gas mileage/handling are all still great.Still fun to drive.
economical, thrifty transportation
Pros: The gas mileage.
Cons: How low the vehicle sits.The Civic Hybrid is a solid choice for high gas mileage and driving satisfaction. The car handles well and consistently averages 38 mpg. The interior is well executed, but is not spacious enough to comfortably accommodate taller adults. The car sits low, which makes entry and exit for taller persons challenging. The trunk is large for a car its size and easily handles bags of golf clubs, baby strollers and other long items
Pros: comfort ride gas mileage
Cons: road/tire noiseExcellent car BUT the exception is road/tire noise
Great Car for Economy & Fun
Pros: 35 MPG & Cool look. Fun to drive.
Cons: Nothing.Black 5-speed is fun to drive & gets 35 MPG. Stick shift gives peppy performance & road control.
Cons: Small interior.It's too small.
