Problems with electric system IMA
By fred on


2005 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Bought in Aug 2005 and 15000mi @ yr. For over 6 weeks not able to drive car with use of electric IMA battery system, new EMC computer needed, none available and there is a national back order. I question if there is a defect or is this normal, 6wks, plus another component for starting the car has to be replaced. Also in the order for the new computer EMC, nothing was written up on the repair, I just have a card with the part number on it and was told it was ok to drive because the gasoline part of the system still functions. (that was until it needed component to start the engine) Am slightly frustrated with the process, the dealers have been nice, but it all makes wonder about the hybird.

Best Features

Mileage, blue light color of dash, and roomy floor space of back seat and feel of car to the highway

Worst Features

Sound proof, automatic lights on/off with door opener and locks and trip mileage should with the simple math of of miles driven and gallons of gas purchased
