Bad Design for a Hybrid vehicle
By david384 on


2006 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


I am traveling salesmen. I drive 40K miles per year. So, I figured I would help mother earth and my pocket book. Bought a used HCH hybrid. Great car I thought. When I purchased this car, I was getting 47+ MPG. I have owned for 8 months, and then all the sudden my MPG goes to 36 MPG. I take to dealer and they tell me it is the heat. Well I have driven this car 26K miles in the past 8 months. I told them it was funny that it worked fine, and then all the sudden crappie MPG. They said that the heat or a bad battery was the problem. Ask them is their a test for the battery? Answer No! Seems funny they can tell me the IMA is fine, but they can not tell me the battery has a bad cell.

Best Features

The blue light dash is cool.

Worst Features

Fix the battery and heat problems that so many people have been complaining about. What I can understand is that Congress or someone can't make you fix a problem that just about all the hch drivers are having with this car at some point in the life of the car. If I knew who to contact, I'd file
