Status Report- 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid After 200K
By auburngbb on


2003 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Total 2003 HCH Cost-
HW Items purchased from 79k to 200k miles as follows:
2 sets of tires
1 speed sensor (drove thru deep puddle)
1 set of spark plugs
1 set of ft brake pads
1 fuel filter

Fluid change maintenance from 79K to 200k
miles as follows:
* Several 0-20W/0-30W oil/filter changes (8k mile intervals)
* Two CVT fluid changes noting I assumed to change oil every 100K miles until I noticed the transmission was slipping and read my OEM operators manual stating to change trans. oil every 30K. After changing the oil the first time THE TRANSMISSION QUIT SLIPPING and I make sure to change this fluid at recommended intervals.
* One Antifreeze change
Car runs good(mildly abused)

Best Features

Dash MPG indicator, arm rest, & CVT smooth acceleration.

Worst Features

Design a CVT that doesn't require such a frequent oil change.
