    I have the same problem with

    I have the same problem with my 2003 Civic Hybrid, for the second time. The first time the transmission was replaced under warranty but it has returned. Seems like a transmission should last for more than 45K miles.

    I live in the MD suburbs and would be interested in the dealer and contact you have worked with. Thanks in advance

    I have an 03 Honda Civic

    I have an 03 Honda Civic Hybrid that I purchased used not too long ago, which was a big mistake. I have had multiple problems with it, one of which has been posted many times on here. Today I had to pull over when the engine was revving as if I was trying to drive in neutral. The green light beside the D on the dash was blinking as well. I've never seen this before and was really freaked out. I had to have a friend come pick me up and while waiting for him I looked it up in the manual and it says that it's something wrong with the transmission. It also says to avoid accelerating rapidly and to get it checked out asap. When my friend got there he drove it around and it acted perfectly normal, no light or revving. We got it home and I haven't drove it since.
    Has this happened to anyone else? I've been looking online and reading your guys' stories and it sounds like I need to put new CVT fluid in it? The dealer I bought it from was pretty shady and I don't think that they used the right fluid. The car also lurches when taking off like so many others have said. The trouble is, I am in dispute with the dealer I bought it from and I am not sure if I should put even more money into it.
    Any suggestions?

    I purchased a 2003 HCH way

    I purchased a 2003 HCH way back in January and it was a nightmare just getting the correct title paperwork from the seller (I bought it out of state). Just got it titled last week. I got a great deal on it at $3200 but it has 140,000 miles and now I'm seeing why. I'm experiencing the same grinding/lurching problems when accelerating and now the IMA light is on after driving only a few days. Plan on going to a honda dealership to have them diagnose. If they tell me it needs a new transmission, I will just ask them to flush it out with the CVT fluid to buy me some time (since I see this only lasts for a few thousand miles based on others' comments) so I can resell it. I'm obviously out of the warranty time/mileage. I'm sure I can get at least (if not more than) what I paid for it. A new transmission will cost me more than that.

    Think I'm going to get a Prius. Way less problems. Wish I would have seen this forum before I bought the car. But I'm glad I'm seeing it now before I wasted more money on the honda hybrid.

    As a side note, I've owned a 1997 honda accord for over 5 years and never had any major problems. If I ever do honda again, i'm sticking with the non hybrid models. Good luck to everyone.

    My beloved 2004 Honda Civic

    My beloved 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid has the well-known "takeoff shudder" for the second time in only 53,658. miles (as of 5/25/12).

    This 'judder' was fixed before in Feb. 2008, using the "burnishing" method. The mileage from new then was only 25,617. miles. My dealer, Martin Honda of Newark, DE offers to repair the judder again for $640., Honda absorbing part of the (est. $1700.?) cost.

    This seems to me to be a recall situation. The internet indicates many folks are having this same problem with Honda Hybrids. What warranty would go with this second repair of what is an obvious design flaw?

    I am on the brink of abandoning my Honda loyalty. I'm afraid Honda will lose it's long-time good reputation with my large, extended family.

    Kassi I am so happy to see

    Kassi I am so happy to see that I am not hte only one who has experienced this weird RPM issue with the blinking light next to the D on the dash! Mine acted fine after I shut it off and turned it back on as well. I have not had my transmission fluid changed since I bought the car (oops) nor have I had the burnishing compelted on the car as suggested in earlier posts. Have you had any luck changing the fluid or anything like that?

    I have experienced

    I have experienced everything that everyone is talking about, i have had the fluid changed, 2 start clutches, a new radiator due to breaking a line which contaiminated the transmission because antifreeze getting in. now they are at the point the warranty co. is wanting my original purchase sales slip to see what the value is vs. totaling the vehicle out. so it must be a problem that is becoming wide spread.
