Well, after 3hrs at the
Well, after 3hrs at the dealership, emailing all the information I found here, plus more internet information, I now have a 'regular LX 2010 Honda Civic' . I couldn't believe how 'easy' it was, I'd only driven 50mi in the hybrid, but had a great fear of entering the highway...dud exceleration. Car battery never did charge fully, despite very conservative driving. I think they duped me price wise, but quite frankly, I'm just glad to not worry about the hybrid! So wish I'd seen this website before I purhased the hybrid...good luck to you all and I hope somehow your hybrids will have recalls like Toyota stepped up with all their problems.

Yes I live in Melbourne,
Yes I live in Melbourne, Australia, have a 2007 Honda Civic Hybrid which I bought new in Brisbane. The car has been brilliant until last year (moved to MEL last year), but thr air on kills the battery in stop and go traffic. Had software update at Eastern Honda in Doncaster, now the battery and engine stability are all over the place.
My options: buy / install a new hybrid battery or buy a turbo diesel!...
I don't know if the Prius has the same issues...

today is june, 02, 2012 in
today is june, 02, 2012 in phoenix - we have a 2009 honda civic hybrid which we purchased new and we've experienced all of the performance issues along with the weak/no a/c.
on a few occasions now, after battery work had to be performed due to failure, we've also experienced problems with the power windows not operating. imagine the 115 degree summer heat in arizona (that's about 4 months of straight heat here) with no a/c and your windows won't roll down - all that and a bag of chips on a 450+ payment per mo with a few years to go... this is ridiculous! in a nutshell, this particular honda is a huge disappointment. add me to the list of class action. we are fed up and will not buy another honda.
