2007 Honda Civic HybridDerek S - Los Angeles, CA11/05/2015
The 2007 Honda Civic Hybrid is still being advertised as 40/45 mpg (which is why I bought it), but Honda updated the software which changed that rating. I get about 32 mpg now. Had I known that before purchasing this vehicle, I would have bought a Prius instead.
The 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid is a great commuter car. It's durable with easily-replaced parts, comes with a lot of neat features as part of the base package, and gets great gas mileage even without modifying your driving style. When I first started driving it, I averaged 41 mpg, a little under the 44 mpg the vehicle's advertised at- however, by monitoring the fuel-usage display on the dashboard as I drove, I quickly learned to modify my driving to be more efficient. I've gotten up to 56 mpg.
Cautionary note: be aware that the life of the lithium-ion battery pack is only about 100,000 miles. If you have your car for longer, you'll eventually need to replace it, which will run several thousand dollars if it's not under warranty.
