2003 Honda Civic Hybrid Question: What do I do if my transmission seems to be slipping?
When I push the excellerator, the car doesn't smoothly excellerate. It kind of bumps through. Is this common in a Civic Hybrid of about 55,000 miles? And what is the repair likely to cost? - Visitor
I have a 2004 and it stutters or slips, I took it to a reputable mechanic who did some research on it and found that if you flush the transmission fluid on it a few times it cures the problem, it costs about 100 bucks here in CA to do this but it fixed the problem. they recommend changing the fluid every 30,000 miles - Visitor
I would check with your Honda Dealer (ASAP) Many Honda Civic Hybrids equipped with the CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) experience drive belt slippage, or shuddering at low speeds. TSB 07-050. Honda increased the warranty on selected models to 7 years or 100,000 miles to address this issue.
