2010 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan w/Lthr (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


More or less our 2010 Civic Hybrid was not the best choice.
It is all pretty good and as I expected for a Honda except the hybrid battery.
Here you have a car that gets 38-42 miles per gallon which is fine and we are happy with it.
But at 40k miles the hybrid battery needed replacement.
The battery is covered for 100k miles so they replaced it but the coverage is not extended as a new battery but just covered for the additional 60k miles!
So we have a car that gets mileage that is only a hair better, if that, than the new non-hybrids and the battery is not dependable.
So lurking in the future is perhaps the need to pay $4k or better for a new battery.
Best to pick another hybrid.

Best Features

Comfortable, nice riding car for its size. Fit and finish is very nice.

Worst Features

Extend the factory coverage on the hybrid battery. If Toyota can produce a dependable hybrid battery why can't Honda. Bluetooth should be standard.
