Inspected but found no problems, yet auto still had same problems until it failed./10/2010 ima(hybrid battery) and engine light on, battery drops to no indication bars. Dealer reprogrammed internal software, under warranty/27/2010 left front window fell in, unable to operate, out of use until repaired (had to replace window and regulator, but window not broken, dealer insisted had to replace both). Charge $431.68, dealer states no longer under warranty, yet same window had failed on 12/27/2007./26/2010 ima (hybrid battery) software updated again, had been done 07/10/2010.

Two updates to software attempts unsuccessful. Recall documented by Honda.//18/2010 left front wheel bearing failure. Charged $48.69 to diagnose. Dealer asking about $400 to repair. Unable to afford dealer cost, repaired elsewhere. Have learned there may be a recall on same issue NHTSA #: 07V399000./15/2011 gas cap door lever failed. Unable to open gas cap door to pump gas. Mechanism broke that has cable traveling from driver's seat to gas cap door. Had to dismantle component from within the trunk to open. I was at a gas station when this happened at night. Dealer is not open at this time. Very concerned with car's multiple function failures. Non of which have been caused by driver.

I bought a new 2007 Honda Civic hybrid from a certified Honda dealership. The design flaw of the rear tire arms of the vehicle caused the tire arm to rub on the tires of the car until the tires were nearly bald causing the car to shutter and the structure of the tires to weaken endangering me and my passengers. When I took the car to Honda, I was forced to replace the tires prematurely 2 times since owning the car due to the irregular wear on the tires. Honda did not notify me of the problem, refused to pay for new tires but finally admitted after the second pair of tires were rubbed bald, that the tire arm of the car was causing damage to the tires. They repaired the tire arm, but would not pay for new tires. The transmission of the car is also flawed in design. Occasionally when accelerating, the gas pedal of the car can be pushed to the floor and the car will not continue to accelerate and will loose power. This has happened at stop lights, entering the freeway, and going up hills endangering my life and the lives of my passengers. Honda again, did not notify me of the problem, but told me when I brought the car in after experiencing the problems that I needed an upgrade to my computer and that those upgrades may fix the problem. Those updates to the computers effect the battery of the hybrid part of the car's engine. Those batteries are loosing the ability to hold a charge and causing the transmission to fail because the car relies on that battery power to run the engine. The gas mileage of the car has also been steadily declining. When the car was new, it got 45 mpg and Honda advertised it get 50 mpg, the car now gets around 33 mpg. The computer updates are changing the way the car runs off of gas and battery power and Honda is not replacing the faulty batteries. This has endangered my life and the lives of my passengers because the faulty batteries effect how the car operates.

The integrated motor assist (ima) system on my 2007 Honda Civic hybrid has been malfunctioning on a daily basis since the weather has been greater than 90 degrees this year. The system behaves erratically without warning, causing an extreme decrease in the hybrid motor battery charge and overall vehicle power at unexpected times. This loss of power causes a significant change in the anticipated performance of the vehicle, including the lack of sufficient power to overtake a vehicle (pass) or to maintain a safe speed relative to other cars when on an incline, without a significant increase in the gas engine RPM. Additionally, the ability to accelerate from a stop at a comparable rate to other vehicles is not possible without the assistance of the ima, causing unexpected backups of traffic behind my vehicle. At times (intermittent problem) the regenerative charging system seems to be fighting with the vehicles acceleration when coming to a stop. This causes random changes in the braking power and the resultant brake pressure required on the brake pedal. This results in small and unexpected power/accelerating surges when coming to a stop, which compromises the ability to safely judge the distance and speed at which to begin applying the brake in anticipation of an upcoming stop.

Car would not start due to low battery charge. Cause is unknown. After battery jump, the ima system of the Honda Civic hybrid did not function. Ima yellow caution light and green drive light (flashing) were on and off. I was told to drive it for 45 minutes to recharge. This was dangerous as there was a lack of power. At rest, the car and steering nearly shuts down! the car is at the dealer. They are having problems diagnosing the problem. The dealer indicated that 21 error codes came on and that they are contacting Honda. This is a serious safety hazard!

Under humid conditions, the main battery of this hybrid suddenly drains, leaving the car without the electric motor. In this vehicle, this means that there is very limited torque (normally supplied by the electric motor). This first occurred in the summer of 2007 and has continued with increasing frequency to the present time. This brought to the attention of the selling dealership (southern motors of savannah) in August of 2007 and at the end of September of the same year. They claimed they could find nothing wrong despite being shown photographic evidence of the failure. The car was returned to the dealership on August 8, 2008 with further proof of the problem. The have claimed that they contacted american Honda and were told that Honda was aware of the problem but had found no solution. The car was returned to me on August 27, 2007 with the condition unresolved.

  • Manual transmission
  • 1 miles
The 2007 Honda Civic si (manual transmission) includes a "drive-by-wire" fuel throttle system that simulates leaving your foot on the accelerator even when your foot has been removed from the pedal when attempting to shift gears or attempting to decelerate. This condition presents a safety threat as well as necessitating excessive braking force causing unnecessary premature wearing of the brake lining and rotors. A tsb was released for the 2006 Honda Civic si that attempts to address this same issue. However, this correction is either not addressed on the 2007 model or not sufficiently addressed to correct the safety threat caused by this condition.
