2012 Honda Civic HybridJim K - Decatur, GA09/30/2016
The 2012 Civic Hybrid is factory-rated at 41 mpg, and that's exactly what I'm getting after five months of use. Handling is much tighter than my Camry. Road noise is not bad for a subcompact. Seats are not very comfortable; driver's seat feels off level, headrests are awkwardly angled, backseat has minimal legroom. Not a lot of horsepower, but hey, it's a hybrid. Braking is excellent. Styling is nicer in newer models, but it's still a good-looking car.
This is such a great little car that even though I originally bought it for my daughter to learn to drive on, I have been taking it everywhere instead of my Honda Accord. For me, miles per gallon have been around low 40s both around town and on the highway. It has plenty of power and I love the quiet at stoplights when it goes into a special kind of sleep mode that instantly goes back off when you take your foot off the brake. The car has intergenerational appeal -- it looks great to me as well as to my teenager. The drawbacks are few and really depend on what you need. For example, the undercarriage rides pretty low, so it's probably not the car for you if you have to negotiate a rural gravel driveway that might be too high in the middle for this car. The trunk is roomier than I expected, but it's still a Civic so don't expect too much. Likewise, storage in the driver area includes cup holders and a glove compartment but not much more. Still, this car will win you over, if you can find one that someone was actually willing to part with!
