It appears that the battery is somehow linked with the hybrid battery system, such that loosing battery power does not just keep the car from starting, but shorts out all electrical systems, then perhaps comes back on as a small amount of charge is replaced to the battery? The car door wouldn't open nor start on Sept 4th and so I had the car towed to the Honda dealership to find out the problem. It was like a nightmare. I find at 77000 miles the vehicle transmission should not be failing. If we do not drive the car for 15-18 days, when we try to start the car the battery is dead. Contacted Honda of America they are replacing my battery pack with brand new one from the factory.
I have to ease it into gear at times. If I wanted to get 24 mpg I could have paid much less money or stayed in my 2000 Volvo which still gets 19 to 21 mpg. The wires under the hood and inside the car all the way to the trunk were all melted. Just ceased working for a couple days -- pegged at 70 when the car wasn't moving faster than 5mph, that kind of thing. I set it and it gradually gets slower and slower.

It's crap, not much better than before, varies at different times, different weather, etc, so I have to go back and get them to try something else.
The car has over 200k miles now with no other major problems, although the brakes tend to wear out a little soon and I have to watch them. I decided to wait and get a battery in the next few months. This past may the engine overheated with no warning; no engine lights went off on the dashboard and the temp gauge never registered anything above normal. The recall began on July 1, 2015.

I've also had my driver side window electric replaced but am still having issues with the window rolling up when it rains. I bought my Civic used; the paint on the roof and hood is peeling.

I was driving home from work and was just about ran over by traffic when my car began to slow and make noise putting me in a very stressful situation. The passenger side visor broke off. This is when I decided to put it on neutral and follow by a loud noise the engine finally stop running.
