We have a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid. The myth about hybrid cars was that the main hybrid battery would die after 8 years. We haven’t found this to be the case at all. The battery is still going strong, working as hard as ever. It still charges when we brake, and assists the motor when we accelerate.
During the winter, we put snow tires on this car and it gets about 37 mpg. In spring, summer, and fall, it gets about 40-42 mpg. That’s pretty good mileage.
P.S. This car will be for sale soon. Stay tuned.
