2008 Honda Civic Hybrid

2008 Honda Civic Hybrid Crusher - 05/22/2011

This car is so fun to drive. It is like driving a big electric golf cart but with much more pizzazz. I haven't figured out all the bells and whistles yet but I managed to get the clock set and the radio tuned in. The in-town gas mileage is a tiny bit disappointing, but that is because I'm driving it all over town all the time. The highway mileage is about 41 mpg. I am very happy with this car and am recommending it to everyone who asks.

VERY pleasant surprise

2008 Honda Civic Hybrid Bennett - Hartford, CT 03/24/2012

I needed to upgrade from an old SUV which was needing work - and after much deliberation decided to go all-out and take a hybrid. I wasn't keen on the Prius based purely on looks, so it was a choice between the Altima, Camry or Civic hybrids. As it happened the Civic showed up first to try out. I was very surprised based on the tiny 1.3L engine just how much pickup it has. Sure, the IMA power assist helps a bit, but even without that the car is light enough to feel pretty nippy. Steering is tight, braking is great (partly assisted by the energy recovery part of the hybrid power train). I was worried about some of this based on old reviews of re-programmed Honda systems that went into battery-save mode at a cost of power. It certainly didn't feel that way to me. It looks a bit generic in this day and age, but stylish enough. It's just hard to pick out from a lineup of similar sedans (only the small rear spoilers and special wheel covers put it apart from the base Civic). Inside though - beam me up Scotty! A lovely blue-tinged electronic two-tier dashboard that is totally 21st century. It has some nice features that I wasn't used to - climate control, aux jack for the audio system, and the higher end model apparently has navigation with voice control. It is a pleasure to drive - although the battery assist and charging on deceleration will take some getting used to. I love the idle-stop feature, where at low speeds or stopped at a light the engine will cut out completely to save gas. It takes a very brief time to kick in again - you notice it mainly due to the slight judder as the cylinders turn over, but it's not unpleasant, just different. I got an impressive 45mpg just driving this home from the dealer, in a mix of highway driving, country lanes and several steep hills. Battery assist made sure I was getting about 25mpg UPHILL, which was stunning to me. Plenty of battery unless I imagine you had miles of steep inclines to cover. I do not, so I anticipate to get the most out of this little girl on my daily commute. Rear seats and trunk space is fine - nothing stunning, but not too tight either. Front seats have a nice bucket shape to them. No reclining rear seats due to the battery pack, but I don't care. You might, so I mentioned it. The joy of driving it and the several unique features had me hooked. If you want more power, or a more distinct look, or better performance in the snow - you'll need something else. But if you want a fun, neat, incredibly efficient modern car then I strongly recommend the Civic Hybrid.

Love my Hybrid.

2008 Honda Civic Hybrid RobFord37 - Lincolnton, NC 01/27/2012

I love the car. It's made driving fun again watching all the guages and trying to eek out every last mpg. Made me a better driver and less stressed. No more NASCARing through traffic. I'm averaging 44mph since I got the car. About twice what my PT Cruiser got. I drive 100 miles a day so it helps. I'm a big guy, 6'6", 260lbs. Getting in and out can be a little tricky, but no big deal. Once in the seats, headroom, etc are great. Only complaint is that my knee rests on the emergency brake handle and that's uncomfortable.
