2009 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)

Review

I usually keep cars 6-10 years; got rid of this after one year, 7500 miles.
Why?
In a little over 12 months, car was in the shop four times-twice for Check IMA light, once for Check Engine light, once because entire driver's side window assembly failed-the whole thing, window, frame, motor for electric window.
Vehicle was dangerously slow, and gas mileage was much worse than advertised(maybe because of the constant computer updates-see Edmunds forum for more info). I've owned some really bad cars over the years-anyone remember the Chevy Monza?-but this was by far the worst.

None

Worst Features

The entire drive system is junk; dangerously slow, gets much worse mileage than advertised. Honda needs to start over on this hybrid.
