- non so far
Purchased As Used
bought a 2008 civic hybrid and it has been excellent. Read a lot of these reviews claiming the software update has caused decreased fuel economy so that the car performs like an "average" civic at 45 mpg or 5.4L/100km. I traded in my 2006 civic for this car....average fuel conomy for a "normal civic" is 33 mpg or 7L/100km...this is hilarious to me that people are complaining! 45 mpg of true mileage is great! 50 is even better. I get 4.9L/100km on the highway. Let's stop comlaining people and look at the big picture, we aren't driving around in controlled climate and labratory conditions. The auto stop is SUPPOSED to disengage during colder climates in order to keep the engine warm and for optimal function. And yes the battery will drain if you constantly have the A/C running so be concious of your climate control. The 2006/2007 hybrids did have a problem with what's called a dc-dc converter (my dealer showed my the claims/recalls) it controls the computer system and the update did mess it up. But the 2008 models have a brand new component completely redesigned as it was explained to me. So to those of you who think that it has affected your economy...why don't you try adjusting your driving habits and being more concientious of things that affect the economy...accleration, temperature, road conditions etc. and remember that the average civic does not get close to what you are getting with your hybrid and the computer update does not affect you gas mileage. I had mine done and no problems!
