Hondas are great cars, but I would not choose a hybrid again

2008 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sdn Hybrid

Let me start of by saying that I bought my car used in 2016, I am the 2nd owner of this vehicle. So based on it being about 8 yrs old when I purchased it, I must say despite one major problem it has been a great car. Now I can honestly say that the only reason I would not recommend this car is because the hybrid battery will eventually need to be replaced at some point in time. It costed me 2,500 to replace mine, but when I was asking different shops, I realized that it will cost up to 5000 depending on where you go. Anyway, as far as comfort I love it. It's perfect for a small family, or couple or single person. It fits up to 5 people. The controls on the dashboard are easy to used, and the A/C still runs ice cold. Now the GPS is a feature I never use. I find it too difficult to use compared to my phone's GPS, and plus mine is outdated but I'm sure you could get an updated version. My seats are cloth and till this day none of them have any kinds of tear or detachments on them. Also it is great on gas and I have never had to add more than 27 bucks to fill up my tank. It's the best feature about my car and I love it.

my car is that it is still going after 11 years with just minor issues!

The most I love about my car is that it can go for a long time. Recently we drove to Houston from San Antonio which is 3 hours and from Houston to Beaumont which is another hour and half with not issues had to stop for gas on the way and coming back from Beaumont to Houston. The gas is used efficiently, cost around 35 to fill up being that it is the main car it does get filled up maybe twice a week or every other Monday. The maintenance is easy, recently while driving something fell on top of the sunroof causing it to break, but fortunately it didn't cost an arm and leg to get a replacement. Also, the air conditioning was starting to get low as summer was approaching and that needed to be addressed, that task was simple as well the parts didn't cost as much as we expected and everything works fine now. Other than the things listed, we don't have any issues with the car as far as the engine and it is 11 years old.

10 year old civic with only 54 thousand miles.

I like my Honda civic, it has served me well for the last 10 plus years. I drive it mostly in the city so it has low mileage, but the mileage it does have is tougher than a normal or typical vehicle that drives mostly along the highways. The biggest issues I have with the car is that it seems to need a new Battery Way too frequently. Other than that, it is extremely reliable.

Awesome fuel economy but spacious for the family.

2008 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sdn Hybrid

The fuel economy is great. However on a low hybrid battery the acceleration is very slow. So do not pull out in front of anyone. The trunk is very spacious even with the battery located between the back seat and the trunk. It is very low maintenance and is very reliable. It is easy to get the kids in and out of.

Honda Civic Hybrid: It's All Good.

The car is big and roomy for a compact. I have had no major problems in over 10 years, including no problem at all with the hybrid battery. The gas mileage has never been less than 40 miles per gallon, even when measured from stop-and-go driving in Manhattan.
