We own a 2008 Civic Hybrid
We own a 2008 Civic Hybrid and this is the worst car I have ever owned. First off, I had to replace 2 tires at 16,000 miiles. The dealer said it was because we weren't rotating them enough which is a crock because we rotated them when they told us to rotate them. I replaced the other 2 at 28,000. Now, if I have a crappy set of tires, I can guarantee you that I can get a minimum of 40,000 out of them before they need to be replaced.
Second, the salesman told us, and was backed up by the sticker, that we could get 50 mpg no problem. The best I have ever gotten was 48 mpg and that was because I was drafting a semi. 40 mpg is a good average.
Third is the handling. This car handles terrible on wet roads or snowy and icy roads. This is NOT a car for anyone who lives in a snowbelt state. I live in MN and have done so all my life so driving in snow and on ice is nothing new to me. This car is actually scary to drive in either.
Lastly, is the comfort. This car is very uncomfortable to drive or ride in for any period of time. The seats are very hard and ridgid and the suspension doesn't soften anything either.
THe lease on this car is only 2 months away from maturing and I am happy to say that we will be returning it and walking away. This was a bad deal from the start and will be good to get out from under. Needless to say, we will not be getting another Honda.

My mileage has dropped
My mileage has dropped noticeably since my last service appointment and I noticed on the receipt that they used synthetic blend oil this time instead of regular oil. As far as I can tell, both kinds are 0w-20. Any reason why that might make a difference?

Honda is great for thinking
Honda is great for thinking their customers are stupid. My mileage went from 40 mpg to 25-28 mpg after a software upgrade last year. I took it into the dealer last month and had it checked for malfunctions, and of course they found none. They told me they got 40 mpg after driving it 5 miles. After I picked it up, the mileage dropped like a rock back to between 25-28 mpg. which I have experienced since the software upgrade. I wrote their corporate headquarters and got a canned patronizing response from one of their trained customer complaint reps who told me the conclusion was that the degradation in the mileage was due to my "driving habits." My driving habits have not changed and certainly not changed significantly to cause such a severe drop in mileage. I got the same patronizing b.s. when I experienced a defect in their windshield glass. Time to buy a Prius!!
