2010-reg Hybrid, Owner for 1 to 3 years

No problems apart from a manufacture's recall and needed new brake discs on the rear of the car as they had warped (due to really bad weather and the car not being used for some time). Do a good mix of driving, quite frequently hit 60mpg on a run on the motorway - averaging about 70 in econ mode. around town econ is a bit sluggish, but you get used to it. sport mode a lot of fun on country roads. For the size of the engine, performance is good. the engine revs sweetly and freely. electric motor makes itself felt lower down the rev range in sport mode. under hard acceleration the battery doesn't really last long enough and occasionally you can find yourself with no electric assist.

From day one it felt extremely well put together and now, although I have only done 6000 miles there is not a rattle or squeak - unlike my last mini! It has the same 45ltr tank as the mini and goes nearly two weeks between fill-ups: the mini needed refuelling weekly.

Nothing has gone wrong. Very low running costs with reasonable insurance, very low road tax and low fuel consumption.

Never gone wrong but a part has fallen off which honda refuse to replace under warranty. Very expensive spare parts.
