This is not a hybrid, do not pay the extra money! I previously owned a 2002 Prius but when it was up for renewal and had over 120k miles I thought it was a good time to trade it in. Thinking that Honda was a solid company I felt confident about buying the 2007 Civic Hybrid. It was the worst decision! Advertised mpg of 40+ I only get <27mpg - I could have spent thousands less for a regular Sudan with better gas mileage. The acceleration is also DANGEROUS with the IMA motor sometimes it will accelerate and then others it will barely move almost causing multiple accidents. Do not waste your money!!!
my 07 civic hybrid has 81k on it and I have had zero problems or complaints with this amazing car.
It has the built in navigation and great sounds system all of it is voice activated.
It also has the sunroof that is very nice and gets used alot.
This car is so comfortable for me and roomy for the carseat in the back.
The trunk holds alot for a smaller car.
Very sporty dash and outside design.
Have never had this car in the shop for anything.
I do all town driving and get 40mpg every time.
Ive seen some reviews that complain about this car and it has to be the owner being too rough.
This is a great quality car and have no problems inside or out with it!
stylish, fuel economy, reliability, cool blue interior, cockpit design is very futuristic.
I bought this car used with only 25,000 miles on it.
It now has over 162,000.
First battery went out just under warranty of 100,000 so fixed by dealer at no cost to me.
Second battery did not even last 60,000 miles, warranty apparently expired as Honda refused to fix so I paid $2700 for the part plus labor, etc.
Whatever $$$ I saved with hybrid technology clearly down the drain.
Would never buy this car again.
Unlike my two previous Dodge Grand Caravans (1993 and 1995), I never had to fix automatic door openers, radio dials, speakers, and have only had to replace brakes once.
Seems very solid and stable as compared to Chevy Cruze and Nissan Versa I rented while my 2nd hybrid battery was being installed.
Nothing else besides the battery seems to be an issue, i.e. transmission, etc.
I use my 07 civic hybrid as a communter car to and from work. I average 35,000 miles per year and have had no problems. I do all the required maintanance ( most of it myself) and expect plenty of more miles to come. Intertior had held up strong with no issues whatsoever. All electronics work perfectly with no sign of impending failure. As for the IMA battery...I can tell it is going to go fairly soon. However, I do not plan on fixing it due to the nature of my driving. It will operate without an IMA battery, Just dont expect to get the accel youre used to. Overall, wish I would have purchased the non-hybrid version. But, I'll drive this one into the ground. Hoping that'll be a long time.
Everything but the IMA. Keep in mind, it's still a Honda.
Replace the batteries when they fail. It wont bankrupt your company, and it will regain the confidence in your customers.
Unfortunately at this point I would say do not buy a Honda car.
I have been a loyal Honda owner for over 20 years but Honda has dug their own grave with this car and battery issue and their lack of customer support!
Just go out and read all the issues that people have had with the IMA recall and battery issues for this car.
Very unhappy customer.
Honda should stick to honoring their warranties and not ruin their good name like this.
