Honda deception
By Joann on


2007 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We recently had the new software update that we got as a result of a recall. Now we have lost power and fuel economy. We recently read a number of articles that claim that Honda knows they have a problem with their batteries so made this update so that the car relies on the gas portion and not the Hybrid part. Sometimes we can't get up our own driveway. We called Honda and they said too bad even though our car was under warranty. We are very disappointed in Honda because they are only thinking about their bottom line (they don't want to buy new batteries) and not customer satisfaction or safety.

I recently had a problem going up a very steep hill. The car just winnned, it would not move forward and as we floored the gas pedal, the gas was consumed yet the car did not move forward. There were several Toyota hybrids at the bottom, none of those cars had a problem going up the hill. It took five men pushing the car up the hill to get the car to street level. WHAT DID you do to resolve your problem? The dealer reports nothing is wrong with my Honda Hybrid, which is clearly not the truth.
