We have been experiencing many issues with our Honda Civic Hybrid. We thought we had it fixed (last year about $4500 fixes) and now it rumbles when you push the gas pedal. Not buying another Hybrid ...
Starting to have vibrations when going into reverse. Then also during start-up and accelerating. I suspect engine motor mount but have no been serviced yet.
Left upper engine mount replaced at 40,430 miles. Presented as a vibration and low rumble. Again at 83,767 miles with same symptoms. Now am replacing 3 engine mounts and one transmission mount. All these problems identified at the Honda dealership and repaired by dealership.
Vibration started around 100K miles and became more noticeable around 110K. After replacing the transmission mount all vibrations are gone and my civic hybrid feels almost like new. Sweet.
Vibration occurs when accelerating after a complete stop.

I had to have the left side mount replaced at 75,200. I had felt the steering and car shaking more than usual shortly before, but I waited since I was close to the 75,000 maintenance. The problem was discovered while in the service center. It cost approximately $600 (mostly labor cost) and replaced what is a molded piece of rubber. I never experienced this problem with any other car, but overall I have had fewer major repair bills than any other car, but when there is a problem, its usually costly.
