The ride is choppy and skittish over rougher terrain. Typically sees 40mpg, at least that's what the computer readout indicates. Makes for a decent company car or around the town beater, though. I just don't like Japanese cars--period

I had a 91 Dodge Colt that regularly got well over 40mpg, small 4 cyl and a 4speed....and that was with the ac running, however, it was substantially lighter than the civics of today. An older lady turned left in front of me and I hit her at about 25mph, thought I was going to die(was wearing my seatblet), but the car did really well structurally although her insurance company totaled it.

My Car WOO HOO...... Now SOLD
New car.... 2001 Jaguar XJR!!!!

My old '80 Rabbit diesel with 275k routinely got 40mpg, without even trying. Hell, my midsize '96 Passat tdi used to get 38mpg. I think the hybrid stuff is a bit gimicky

Not cost effective when pen placed to paper, but lower emissions if city driving is the norm.
