Buyer beware! The dealer posted a stock photo of a car that looks nothing like the actual car. There is oxidation on the trunk and top of the actual car.
Excellent 2012 Civic Hybrid-No problems since new!
I purchased a used/resale 2012 Civic Hybrid three years ago at 87,000 miles. It has run perfectly, with no issues or problems whatsoever. The first owner had all Honda dealer required maintenance/service and we both have maintained the car well. It is fun to drive, comfortable, VERY economical and gets 44-48 mpg. It is a very quiet, smooth riding with a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. Excellent air-conditioning and heating, super safe with eight airbags in front. The 2012 Civic Hybrid has the "larger, improved 1.5 L gas engine and more powerful 17kw electric motor. It also has the longer-lasting ("10-15 yrs.") Lithium battery. Fill the 13.5 gal. gas tank and its range is 500 plus miles. The exterior paint and interior still look like new. No exterior paint issues, no CVT transmission issues and still looks and performs like new. It has a 160 watt stereo w/CD, Mp3, Blue-tooth, traction control and "econo" mode for even better gas mileage. Plenty of power and good acceleration. I recommend the 2012 year model Honda Civic Hybrid to all who want a well-built, safe, fun and economical car. I have enjoyed driving it and have not had any problems/issues whatsoever with this well-designed little car.
Reliable for now
Haven't had any issues, been following the maintenance program with honda, very good on gas. I'm at 120000 miles, and i live in Québec, Always started. The only problem is the depreciation value because some constumers are scrared of hybrids car, in fact mine is really good on brakes, oil change is required at around 15000 km, and you save a lot on fuel, my average fuel during the last 60000miles 43.56 miles per gallon, including all seasons. Compared to 31 for a civic that is not hybrid, and in Quebec with the winters would be more like 28 in average since you need to start your car. Great car and as a way nicer look than a prius.
