Honda Civic hybrid poor gas mileage
I just bought a 2007 Honda Civic hybrid in September. I am very disgusted with this car because of the poor gas mileage. I average about 32.5 on a tank of gas. That is combined city and highway in the Northeast. I would never have bought this car if I knew the mileage was so bad. The stickers for 2008 say 40 to 45, but I never have gotten close to 40. I have read all I can on how to drive the car, but those adjustments (including raising the tire pressure to 35, coasting, cruise control, and driving like a grandmother) have made no difference. I should have bought a Prius. I have two friends who have one and they both average between 40 and 50 mpg.i plan to pursue my complaint with the company. Any body having similar problems? any suggestions?
