Replaced hybrid battery twice over 162,000 miles

Vehicle2007 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesUnlike 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.
Worst FeaturesBetter battery!!!!
