I guess the lawyers got it all. This is a really good example of why class action suits are bad these days: Everyone should ignore invitations to join class action suits unless you experienced personal injury. I ignored the Apple suit, which would have gotten me several dollars literally. Jim I have gotten to the same point. My was running fine with good mileage until the computer up date.
The battery died last week and the new battery and programing have left me with a highway mileage at 20 mpg. My full size non-hybrid 6cyl truck gets mileage that good.

So to anyone reading this note…. Jim Tom Seaman My Civic hybrid had 34, miles when the battery pack failed last week. I regret this car purchase and am very disappointed with Honda. Charlotte I own a version and have had the battery fail twice. The dealership did some computer update and said it was fixed. I turned my car into the dealership again last week and am at miles for a CVT update and they did a computer update as well and now the IMA light is once again on and the dealership says that the battery has to be replaced now.
I should be covered because the first time I had an issue was when the car was still undermiles. Originally when we bought the car in it only had approx.Toyota Prius vs Honda Civic Hybrid Review - AA Torque Show
So obviously something with the veh computer is causing this to occur if they keep doing updates and extending the warranties, but just not far enough to supposedly help me.
Michelle Who did you talk to that helped you out with the cost? The replacement battery lasted less than a year. The dealer replaced it free of charge. Now the replacement has started to fail after 18 months. What are they using for replacements if only guaranteed for 3 years and fail so quickly?
Now they tell me the replacement only has a one year warranty! This is my first and last HCH. Laurie Millington The software patch they are referring to actually ruins the way the car runs!
Somedays I have to floor it and the car sounds like its going to blow up! Quite dangerous on ice…. I have complained and complained and all honda says it drives the way it was designed! This is my 6th Honda and will be the last honda I purchase! The only other issue was I had to put a new CVT in. Since I was just outside of my warranty and had a good sob story, Honda helped pay for part of that repair I get about 41 MPG if I drive really nice.
Taking it into the dealership tomorrow.
The transmission light came on shortly afterwards, and we too it back to the mechanic, who says the transmission is now toast. Does this sound right?
Honda Civic IMA () review | CAR Magazine
Graceobserved Our Honda Hybrid has been a nightmare. We have thrown thousands of dollars into it, mostly do to affects from the battery. The IMA battery replacement was The converter was another two thousand dollars. It has had new rack and pinion as well.
And now we learn it needs yet I highly recommend buying a different car than this one. As the battery dies, the car is constantly charging the dying battery, the efficiency goes out the window. In fact their is no honor with Honda America. They did a recall reboot on the battery 2 years ago, but now I am hearing from other Honda Civic owners it was only done to keep the IMA warning system from going on.
I also noticed when they did the reboot the mileage per gallon dropped about 6 or 7 MPG. Honda is no longer on my list of reliable! Patti I own a Honda Civic Hybrid. I replace my battery at 9 years 8 months. I hadmiles. It went again at 24 months. They are replacing it now…I would never get another hybrid.
Consumer Reports Blasts Honda Civic Hybrid Reliability
I am afraid to sell it to someone. I figure I have gotten my moneys worth. Hope to trade it in a year or so…otherwise it has been a great car. I wonder if it is nationalistic americans that are paid by GM and Ford to undermine a fantastic car. Hybrid tech is nothing that american car manufacturers know anything about. Sadly they are 3 generations behind.
