    Hi, I'm looking at used

    Hi,

    I'm looking at used cars and found a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid with 101,000 miles that I really like. The ad says "all original parts" which I take to mean it still has the original battery. I'm concerned that if I buy this car, it won't be long till I need to replace the battery. From what I've read replacing the battery can cost upwards of $3000 which I wouldn't be able to afford. Can anyone give me some advice about this?

    Thanks,
    Carrie Ann

    I drive about 150 miles

    I drive about 150 miles daily commute to work. Mostly on highway 70mph+. My SUV only gets 19 mpg at best, even with highway driving. Is a hybrid the right choice for me? My assumption is that hybrids are better for city driving <35mph. Any advice is appreciated, Thanks.

    I have a 2003 Civic Hybrid

    I have a 2003 Civic Hybrid with 122,000. The IMA light has been on since 120,000. I have disconnected the 12 volt battery's positive lead multiple times and it does reset the IMA light, sometimes for a few days to a few weeks.

    But my question is: if the IMA battery gets to the point where it can no longer keep a charge, will the car continue to operate but just not have the benefit of the IMA motor?

    I went looking for a vehicle

    I went looking for a vehicle since mine died last Monday. I found a 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid that I really want. My husband asked our mechanic about it. He told hubby about the battery issue, thus, I am looking for info about this. I see no one is replying to people who've been coming here with questions for the past 36 weeks. I do hope someone will comment on our questions. Does Honda still cover the cost of replacement of the battery even if it has a second owner?????

    The starting price on a 2012

    The starting price on a 2012 Honda Civic Sedan is $15,805 and the starting price for the same car in a hybrid is $24,050. That is a difference of $8,205 which in 2010 is almost the same as the average used car that was purchased. The normal sedan gets a combined average miles per gallon of 32 while the hybrid gets 44. The average miles driven a year is 13,576 according to The Federal Highway Administration and the average gallon of gas in California costs $4.26. You would spend $1314.40 on gas in the hybrid one and $1807 in the gasoline engine. That is a difference of $492,91 so it would take around 16 years until you break even on it and that is if you donít have to by batteries. hybrids suck assss

    Hello, I have just put

    Hello,
    I have just put a down payment on a 2003 Honda Civic Hybrid that has 95,000 miles. Should I be concerned about the mileage and the battery? How many miles does a battery last on average, and how do I know how many miles are on this battery?
    Thank you,
    Michael
