    Hybrid Long-term Test Wrap-up: 06 Honda Civic

    Hi to all
    Still not a fan.
    ---

    After 4,900 kilometres, CanadianDriver's Honda Civic Hybrid long-term test car returned a combined 6.1 L/100 km (46 Imperial MPG), reports Paul Williams. That included some pretty severe winter driving conditions in very cold Ottawa temperatures. Even so, "there were no service issues at all and the car ran flawlessly from Day One," he says.

    Darn thing about it is, My brothers 92 Civic SI gets 45 MPG as it is, and its quick and reliable.
    Hybrids should be pulling 100 MPG + to warrant the premium price

    Me I love Honda's, but not a fan of Hybrid's. I still think Diesels offer more for less, especially in the long term maintenance of them. Buying Hybrids is artificially subsidized by the manufacturers. Their full costs hidden.

    When the repair bills start coming in after the Warranties expires i think a shock will hit those owning them Joint Chiefs of Staff.

    Larry,

    Lease a Hybrid and trade it in yearly so the warranty will never expire.

    Have a good one L.

    Hi Chris & JCOS


    Chris
    I have to agree with you on this. Other than reduced emissions there is little to them i admire.
