Save your battery
Around 90,000 Honda Civic hybrids from 2006 – 2008 will require a software update to resolve a problem that could cause the Civic hybrid's battery pack to fail prematurely.
Owners of affected vehicles are being notified, but a recall is not warranted, according to Honda, because safety is not at issue.
Unfortunately, whether this issue has already caused battery packs in some Civic hybrids to fail is not being released by the company. If you've experienced such a problem, please let us know in our Honda Civic hybrid testimonials.
