Considering a 2005 Civic Hybrid
How does someone like me shopping for a used Hybrid know that the batteries are good? The 2005 that I am looking at shows the battery gauge at about 50%. Should that be higher or is that to be expected on a short test drive of only 3-4 miles?
Also, I am also considering a regular non-hybrid civic. I am concerned with the posts from consumers complaining about the higher maintenance costs (i.e. batteries, catalytic converters (costing way more than a non-hybrid). Any advice?
