Are you still liking your Civic?, we just bought ours a few days ago with 165,000 miles in the same Magnetic blue and love it so far, but still on edge waiting for something to go wrong..
I still drive mine every day and do get pretty good mileage considering that mine is having the IMA battery problems that have been talked about on the news. I've been waiting to see if Honda will do anything about it. I have not found a new Navi DVD yet, so I have continued to use the 2006 data. My friend has a newer Acura that he paid the $150 for the updated DVD and I'm going to see if it will work in mine. He may burn a copy if he can.
To get the good mileage I've been getting from my HCH I've been charging my IMA battery every morning for about an hour. I purchased a 200vdc charger on eBay for $40 and wired a pigtail to the battery so can hook it up easliy and give it a 300mA charge while I have breakfast. It keeps if from having as many recals. During the recals, the IMA doesn't work and the car has very little power and eats the fuel while the system brings the IMA battery back to full strength. By doing this I've been able to keep my mileage at an average of 42.5mpg. But I do get about 45 highway, and 38-42 city depending on how I drive. I'd like the car much better if it had a new battery.
