2009 Honda Civic HybridNo Hybrid - Las Vegas, NV06/27/2012
Very disappointed with my hybrid! Yes the mileage is great but less than 3 weeks of owning this car; I lost power while driving the hybrid with the a/c on, then the check engine light and the IMA lights came on. After having to leave the car on the freeway the dealer could not see me for almost a week later. I took the car to an independent dealer who showed me on their computer system that the battery pack on my vehicle needed to be replaced. I took the car back but by then the lights shut off and the dealer refused to look at the car. I finally called Honda Motors Corp and they directed me to a reputable Honda dealer. Yes the dealer had to replace the battery pack and the control unit. If it wasn�t due to my call To Honda Corp I would have had to paid over $4000.00 for repairs!
This is my first time in a hybrid and it has way exceeded my expectations from a performance standpoint. We took a trip to Atlanta this past weekend and cruised in the 70's with no problems. If I did not know it was a hybrid, I probably would not notice any difference. 3 small gripes: 1) it appears there is no water catching "gutter" on the car roof. When you open the window after a rain, water drips into the car. 2) the seat material is a little hard and could be a little more comfortable. And 3) the gas mileage I have recorded so far is 35 in town and 40 on the road. Still not too shabby. I know it depends on how you drive the car but I don't use air conditioning.
This car is a great car. Great mpg, pretty smooth ride, etc. Sometimes it takes a little bit to speed up, and sometimes when you realease the break the car shoots forward without you applying the gas. Not a racing car, but a great every day car. Gets me from point A to point B with no problems. I love it!
