I come across a unit of 2012 Honda Civic Hybrid, but I'm not sure if I should buy it or not. Can you take a look at the specs and see if it is worth the price? Upon test driving it, it works just like this one on the video clip:


Its posted price is $9,500 and it has the following features/feats:

- An integrated motor assist system to aid the driver when running through rough terrain

- A 1.5-liter i-VTEC four-cylinder gas engine capable of producing 110 horsepower and 127 pounds-feet of torque.

- A continuously variable transmission and an electric motor mounted nearby

- At very low speed, the vehicle moves in silence and uses almost no fuel when running

- EPA estimated its fuel economy around 44 miles per gallon both in the city and highway

- It can reach 60 miles per hour of speed from zero in under 12.7 seconds

- It can carry up to 5 passengers

Right price for the car or not? Let me know your thoughts

No. Don't buy any hybrid that is not under a full factory warranty. Very few people know how to work on them. It takes a $4K scanner to get any live diagnostic data other than a basic code number. Taking it to the dealer will cost a few weeks pay.
If you want a Honda, get a conventional power train without a cvt transmission.
Prius is the gold standard but the above still applies.
