Let’s admit that the last couple of years for Honda have not been so great. The Honda brand once had the reputation of being the most reliable car with top notch safety features. However, after taking too many shortcuts to save money,they seemed to have lost their way since 2012. Enter the latest reports on the Honda Civic Hybrid.
“As Autoguide explains, the April issue of Consumer Reports contains a look at hybrid vehicle reliability. The earlier Honda Civic Hybrids, particularly the 2009 model, don’t measure up well against the competition.
Over a 12-month survey period, nearly 20 percent of 2009 Honda Civic Hybrid owners required a battery replacement, while the replacement rate on 2003, 2004 and 2010 Civic Hybrid models exceeded 10 percent.”
Honda is now offering an extension to the warranty from 10 years to 11 years.
