Basic Complaint Is Unpredictable Loss Of Power When Accelerating. This Seems To Be Due To The Ima System Operation. Not Being Able To Depend On Consistent Acceleration Has Drastically Changed The Way You Have To Drive Vehicle To Prevent Crash. If You Needed The Ability To Accelerate Quickly And Safely, You Cannot Count On This Vehicle To Provide It. It Occurs Almost Daily When Acceleration Is Needed Most, Turning Across Traffic And Merging In Traffic/highway On-ramps. At The Start Ownership Of Vehicle, No Problems Noted. Car Operated Great! In Last 5-10k Miles Car Has Gotten Worse And Worse. It Has Had All Software Updates. Mpg Was Always 42-45. Now Runs Around 35 Mpg. *tr

We Purchased A 2008 honda civic Hybrid New, And Were Very Satisfied With The Performance And The Pickup Was Excellent. The Company Performed A “mandatory” Software Upgrade To Improve Battery Life In September 2010. Since That Update, The Car Has Drastically Diminished Response Time To Acceleration, Especially When Attempting A Sudden Burst To Change Lanes Or Turn Through Intersections. The engine Actually Has Almost Stalled When Attempting To Start From A Dead Stop. This Response Time Resulted In A Near Miss While Entering Freeway Traffic Due To The Sluggishness Of The engine When Requesting Acceleration That, Prior To The Software Change, Would Have Not Been A Problem. It Is My Belief That The Software Upgrade That honda Has Forced Upon The Owners Of The honda civic Hybrid Is A Detriment To Safe Driving, And Should Be Reversed At The Soonest Opportunity Before Someone Forgets And Is Actually Involved In An Incident That Involves Serious Injury If Not Death. *tr
