I have a 2004 Honda Civic hybrid and recently, after the warranty expired, experienced problems: the IMA (Integrated Motor Assist)and check engine light came on. You'll need to go to a Honda dealer for assistance, parts and repairs. The two reputable auto shops, I used, could not find the faults using their diagnostic systems. This vehicle was well maintained and not abused or run hard and miles were driven on highways. Note: transmission fluid was approx. $16.00 per quart.
The NiMH battery started showing signs of not holding a charge shortly before the warranty expiration (80,000) and stopped functioning properly at about 84,000 miles. This reduced the fuel economy from 40 MPG to 34 MPG. Replacement batteries are approximately $4,000.
In my opinion, the Honda Hybrid is not worth the extra cost.
Buy a CIVIC (standard) instead. Any savings in fuel is quickly lost when the battery goes bad.
Love the XM.
Love the Gas Mileage but don't expect 40/45 expect more around 30/35.
One major issue with the gay is the ac will stop producing cold air if the car is not in motion. It may be a way to save on gas, but when its 100 degrees outside, you really want the ac to keep blowing cold air.
Its pretty good about not getting door dings. I have already had 2 doors hit my car and all it left was a surface scuff and no actual indentation.
