Hybrid. Bought it new in 2004 for green and gas mileage. Major commuter. 200k miles and no issues. Regularly changed the oil - that's it. The Integrated Motor Assist (IMA - the battery assist) WILL slowly die like all rechargeable batteries do. Gas mileage started at 42mpg. Now at 35mpg. IMA light on (battery assist gone) at 205k miles. Transmission died at 210k miles. Have 236k on it now. Still going strong!
Honda is known for its fuel-efficient, reliable cars built on their world-leading engines. Honda grew their U.S. reputation on compact sedans, then expanded to offer larger vehicles such as SUVs and hybrids.
Founded in 1937 in Japan, Honda originally made engines and their focus on technical innovation continues to the present. Honda entered the U.S. automotive market in the 1970s, winning customers with their affordable-to-run Civic model.
Honda's most popular vehicles are sedans, SUVs and minivans, although their range also includes coupes, pickups and luxurious convertibles.
Honda sedans are the core of this well-loved brand and they have a reputation for reliability, efficiency and innovative features. The midsize Honda Accord is one of America's best-selling cars with a classic body and economic powertrain. The Honda Civic is a surprisingly roomy compact, with hybrid and coupe versions available.
Honda SUVs are spacious crossovers which combine car-like handling with sporty features. The Honda CR-V is a smaller crossover SUV with a standout safety record. Its larger cousin, the Honda Pilot is a more rugged vehicle with robust drivetrain and spacious interior.
The Honda Odyssey is a sturdy minivan which consistently achieves five-star safety results. As well as a roomy interior and sleek exterior, some models have rear entertainment systems and third row seats.
