Pros: It's so clean and quiet.
Cons: I wish it had power seat controls.
Advice: Do your homework . I found the internet to be extremely helpful in determining a fair price for the car.I bought the car 6 weeks ago and love it. To turn the ignition as the garage door is going up and not smell any exhaust is amazing! It is a pleasure to drive....and fun.
Pros: Gas mileage, CVT
Advice: try it, like it, buy itABSOLUTELY AMAZING VEHICLE!!! I've been driving my Civic Hybrid CVT for about 3 months now. I drive 87 miles round trip to work and home, I get anywhere from 48mpg to 53mpg. The car has plenty of power for the 85-93HP engine. The electric motor reaches maximum torque at 1000 RPMs so you have an immediate 13 HP when you are stopped at a light (not that you would want to race it, but it will beat a regular civic off the line). The car is SO quiet, especially when the auto-stop feature engages at a stoplight. The car is a dream...
Pros: Gas mileage
Cons: Not much power
Advice: It's a great buy for the moneyVery smooth ride. Great features and the gas mileage is accurate.
Pros: Engine mpg
Cons: No sunroof available
Advice: Drive both the manual and automatic transmissionsSeats were comfortable; pick up is good (better in the manual transmission) and shifting smooth. Sound system is easy to adjust and gauges are fascinating.
Pros: Quiet ride and silent stops
Cons: Cosmetic rattles
Advice: Don't go to Honda of Lynnwood, WA.My Hybrid almost gets as good gas milage as others. If you live in the hills it kills gas mileage. A few cosmetic rattles are the only frustraiting part of this vehicle. Don't buy from Honda of Lynnwood they lied to me about the price and it cost me $2500.00. Other than that I love every thing about it.
Cons: price of accesories
Advice: Great car! Buy one for yourself!Looks great, handles great. I bought the 5 speed manual, and it drives like a bat out of hell.
Pros: Fuel economy
Cons: Small size
Advice: Buy a regular civic and use the cost savings for two trips to Hawaii.It sure seems small inside, but no worse than the other Hondas. I couldn't get the full-stop to work; the engine needed to run to keep the heater working.
