2004 Civic battery question
I am currently looking to buy a 2004 Honda Civic hybrid. It has 86k miles and is right around 8,400. I haven't been to look at the car yet, but from what I have heard this is the point where battery replacement becomes an issue. What should I look for to tell if the battery is good or is nearing the end of its life when I go check out the car? This would be my first hybrid so I am still a bit in the dark on it. ANy help would be awesome! Thanks everyone.
I've got '04 Civic hybrid
I've got '04 Civic hybrid with 233,000. Never had any battery issues.
Don't buy it. It might go
Don't buy it. It might go to 230K+, or like most of the rest of us (04 HCH Owners) it is very close to failing, and costing you another 4 grand over the purchase price. A lot of people are ditching their hybrids, if you can't live without an 04 Civic Hybrid, buy one cheap and just get a new battery for it off the bat. Or consider buying a well-built car from a company that can stand behind it. I wish I had.
