    I can relate to this, I have

    I can relate to this, I have a 2009 Civic Hybrid and living in Arizona the heat really takes a toll on this car, with the A/C running it takes a good 40 seconds to go from 0 to 65mph which is very dangerous trying to enter a freeway.

    I've also had the IMA issue's.

    I've only got 6 more lease payments to make and i'll be all too happy to turn this car back in and walk away from it. Never to step foot in a Honda showroom again. These cars are junk and how they get a high quality rating is beyond me unless those survey's are paid for by Honda.

    I join the numerous

    I join the numerous frustrated 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid owners. I bought the car intentionally for the gas mileage (supposedly 40-43 mpg) because of high mileage driven. Bought car new and had trouble almost immediately. Gas mileage dropped (and is now at 26 mpg!), power dropped (even got stuck and couldn't back up the small incline of a friend's driveway), and have put my life on the line too many times to count when attempting to pull out into traffic or enter highway (0-70 in 45-50 seconds on bad days). Began complaining to Honda dealer and they contacted American Honda and have test drove, taken "snap shots", upgrades, and replaced the IMA battery in my car 3 times so far, but they report that everything is operating within normal ranges and cannot determine a problem. What next? HELP!!!

    I have a 2008 Civic Hybrid

    I have a 2008 Civic Hybrid with 25k on it. We are experiencing the same issues. Decreased mileage, (was 46-48, now 40-41)increased "generation" mode at stops, sluggish performance. Dealer says they can't do anything til the IMA light comes on--in the meantime the clock ticks out on the pro-rated warranty, which jumps alarmingly at the 3-year point.

    As an aside the original tires wore out at 20K, another disappointment. You just can't drive something more gently than a hybrid....20K?!

    Perhaps the worst part is, we bought this one because the 2003 CH we had was flawless in every respect--including the battery system (and the tires). [And it never once hit "generation" mode in 5 years--I don't know if it had that mode.] We only traded when oil hit $140 and I said, "I want to start Armageddon with a new car". The expected battery life on the 2008 was rated at DOUBLE that of the 2003!

    Very sad to see something that works get screwed up. If I hear of a class action on this, I'm joining it. I may not ever be able to afford this kind of "vote" to the industry again!

    I had three lights come on

    I had three lights come on last week on my 2009. The battery charging, engine malfunction, and ima warning lights came on. Of course when I brought it in, they looked at it and told me to bring back Monday when they could call a specialist in California. By Monday the lights had disappeared, but I took it in anyway to have them run the tests. The ima passed all the tests they threw at it, however the next day the warning lights came back. On Wednesday they called and said they were having a new module shipped to see if that corrected the problem. It didn't so they called me and told me they were going to have to replace the hybrid battery too. Luckily this was all covered by my warranty. The guy that waited on me at the dealership said that Honda has been having these issues, and have made updates to the batteries themselves, and the computer modules, so what they put in my car is not the exact same as what they took out. I am hoping that solves the problem, and if it does I hope it signals that Honda is changing their tune about their hybrid issues.

    I too am from Arizona and

    I too am from Arizona and having sudden problems with my 2009 Civic Hybrid. Took it in in mid June for oil change and haven't had any power since. Would be glad to join class action against Honda.
    Interesting what others are saying. Really not funny! I complained about the AC not working correctly from the day I bought the car.
    As what was stated above my mileage went way down and it is tough to get on the freeway and not feel like I am on a bike. Anyone have a idea how to overcome this one?

    my 2009 hybrid has been a

    my 2009 hybrid has been a good car. however, the mechanic didn't know their is a special oil in the tranny. they put regular tranny oil in it. BIG MISTAKE!! it immediately caused teh belts to slip and Honda put a brand knew tranny in it. I am happy with Honda since it had 71,000 miles on it when tey did it. it was beyond warrantee but they were cool. the mpg sucks! 34 mpg around town. this is NOT what i paid for. i am thinking of selling it.
