Question about 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid

1 Answer

I'm suddenly getting low gas mileage on my 2006 Honda Civic Hybri

My average mpg went from 42 to 35. The assist battery would completely discharge within minutes of getting on the road. The regen braking indicator showed little or no recharging, even with heavy braking and 1 bar on the battery. This problem first surfaced after the starter battery died, perhaps from a dome light was left on overnight.
The dealer reset the powertrain control unit, twice within a month, but the same symptoms return with 48 hours of servicing.

I have got a 2005 Equinox and I'm getting horrible fuel mileage ! Like 7mpg in the city and 17 to 21 mpg on the highway , I've put new tires , battery , original equipment spark plugs and wires and still...


There are many things that could conspire to rob mileage. My first thought was possible transmission slippage. Although your city rating is horrible, the highway mileage is just a little off. 23-25 hwy is correct, 23 for lousy doped California gas, and 25 elsewhere. My guess is that you have slippage but above 45 mph, you are still getting advantage once the converter lock takes effect in overdrive. Just slippage until you reach that lock point.
Start with a full diagnostic of all stored codes in the ODB II computer, both for the engine and the transmission, then an evaluation of your transmission from a good shop.
Good luck, the Equinox is a darned good car,and worth the effort.

Low gas mileage city and hiway @ 4-5 MPG below MSRP sticker data of 15 and 21MPG on a NEW 2013 Silverado. 2000 miles on odometer and mileage not improving.


is this calculated mileage or what the estimated mileage is showing on the dash. Have you checked to see what you get on just the freeway?

What are your driving habits like?

How is your tire pressure?

Do you make a lot of short trips?

When the battery went dead you engine control module lost all learned programming, drive it for a few weeks as normal to restore this and the mileage will be back to normal.

Honda Civic 1.6 vtech Inspire 03 with poor fuel consumption


this car is fitted with a computer controlled engine/gearbox it will try to make you drive as economically as poss, if you let it,Try this,without using the gas padal let the car accelerate all the way to top gear on its own then from stop use 1/3rd of gas pedal upto top gear, try not to assist acceleration let it do its own thing.if you can drive like this all the time gas mileage will be considerably higher.it is made this way because makers have been told to reduce power/gas consumption in all cars....of course you can use kickdown but watch your fuel guage....

Just a simple question: I'm looking at a 2005 Civic Hybrid versus a 2006 regular Civic. I'm leaning toward the hybrid for gas milage, but one mechanic was Very Wary of a Used Hybrid ..."all the hybrid...


it sounds more like that old adage....how long is the piece of string.... i don't think you can ever predict if something will last longer than others, you might buy the hybrid and drive off the forecourt only to have it brake down 2 miles up the road, and vice versa with the normal civic,or they could be looking at 10000000 miles.. they are to be honest just as good as each other, obviously the hybrid is better for the environment and cheaper running cost, but just as all honda's they are both very reliable, i truly think you should toss that coin of fate and see what side it lands, either way your a winner..hope this helps...sorta lol

I had to replace tires twice in 30,000 mile!


as far as the tire issue goes u have a very serious alignment problem, this can be caused by worn parts in the suspension and adjustments that are not correct, most tire shops will do an inspection for worn parts and alignment issues for free, they will report what needs to be done to correct the problem, be advised though that once a tire starts to wear in an uneven manner it will continue to wear that way even after the suspension problems are repaired.

On the gas mileage issue, that is a very trickey question to answer, fuel mileage is affected by so many outside factors that it is difficult to say whether you do or don't have a problem, but in most cases if the tire pressure is good and you have no check engine light on then most likely the fuel mileage is not going to improve much, the tire wear problem however will affect mileage so have the problem corrected.

Gas milage seems to have dropped.


26 from 28 can be as simple as low air pressure in the tires and outside air temp changes.

This sounds very much like an Integrated Motor Assist (IMA Battery) issue. Call the dealer and check if there are any warranty/recall items on it. I've owned my 2000 Honda Insight for 5 years now and it had this issue a couple years back. They replaced a battery control module free of charge and that fixed it. Then earlier this year the battery finally expired after 165,000 miles and 10 years, which is amazing and it was less than $2k for a new one and installation. I love Honda because they stand behind their hybrids.
Otherwise, the good news is all Honda IMA systems will let you continue to drive even if the whole hybrid system has completely failed. If you don't feel like spending the money to get it fixed, don't! By driving with a light foot, avoiding unnecessary hard acceleration and practicing other fuel efficient driving techniques you should be able to get just as good mileage as if the car was new, but just without the extra acceleration kick.
