Takata hear replacements are defective how do you find out if replacement is defective have only right eye and if injured may not be able to drive new headlights are a menace some now with 8 lights and one where all green. They are not aimed on road but so strong in car can read some set so they are higher that windows. I slow down to 20mph to be able to see safely either way others do not like that speed in 50mph zone but not safe to drive when lights like an interrogation room blinding you. If you need 8 lights you should not be driving and these beady start white lights are blinding. Need to go back to two lights shined on the road not 4-8 in different colors the height of the window aimed at the interior like a trooper light

My 2005 Honda Civic hybrid is experiencing a shudder problem when accelerating from a stop and when coming to a stop, either in city traffic or the highway on/off ramps. I have taken it to a mechanic who says he can¿T fix it. I fear for the one time my car doesn't accelerate from a stop and I get hit. Also, when I am breaking in traffic the break seems to release a little which causes the car to lurch forward. From what I have seen on this site and the internet, I am not the only one having these problems. I hope the issues that consumers are having with this vehicle are addressed and fixed before there are any deaths.

My 2005 Honda Civic hybrid has experienced the judder/shudder problem for years, and still Honda dealerships say there is no fix. There are a few complaints on this website, but there are thousands on the internet. This is a real issue that Honda has avoided. I had full confidence in Honda's safety until owning this vehicle. I am waiting for the day my car doesn't accelerate from a stop, and it causes an accident with major injury. Honda will have a bigger problem on its hands if that happens.
