Fix the problems with the engine light
By kat on


2004 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


Since the car reached about 80,000 miles the service engine light comes on at least once a month... It has had a new computer chip, catalytic converter, and transmission clutch box. Now they tell me it needs another catalytic converter $1100. The mechanic told me that Honda has not been able to find a fix for this issue but now it is no longer in warranty. I have had all recommended maintenance which costs between $200-400 each time. I would think that the car would not be falling apart. I have a friend who had to replace the transmission just after 100000.

Best Features

Can drive HOV

Worst Features

Fix the problem so I can say (like the 2 Buicks, 1 Toyota and 1 Subaru that I owned) "I got 300,000 miles." At this point I think I would settle for 200,000. I take care of my cars. Honda I was expecting better if not as good. Dealership is very nice. Staff is very nice. But I want a fix. That doesn't cost an arm and a leg
