Hi everyone im looking to by my first honda civic hybrid. Im looking for a 2003 model and i already know what to look for when it comes to buying one. My main question is i can get a hybrid from another state (other than CA where i am) and its cheaper than in CA. I dont even know if hybrids need to be smogged? can someone tell me if they do or not and if they do is it the same every 2 years? I would think all hybrids even in other states would be made the same but i could be mistaken. If you bought one outside of ca and brought it inside what was needed? did DMV register it without a problem or was there something you need to buy or ad to make it ca exempt?
