I just bought an 03 Civic Hybird with the Auto Trans for my Daughter as her first car from an auction. The only thing I was told, waas that it needed a new Cat to pass smog. I called for pricing and was quoted $1000 for this thing. I didn't even know Hybrids had to smog lol. Is this a reason why my fuel Economy is in the high 20's? Anyone know where I can find a ULEV Cat for cheaper? Thanks for your time and help in advance.
