2007 Honda Civic Hybrid IMA battery recal problems
My 2007 Honda Civic Hybrid experiencing 4 battery recal (re-calibration)
events in just ~12 miles of normal (actually pretty conservative) driving
conditions. Clearly the battery is heavily deteriorated and at the end of
its life cycle. It only operates "normally" at near full State of Charge.
At the end of the video I dogged on it a little bit (maybe 60-70% throttle,
not even WOT) to see how much SOC it lost in one hard acceleration. It
wouldn't even go into AutoStop or give more than 2 bars of assist after
that hard acceleration.
Re-calibrations occur at:

FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Back in 1997 when the Toyota Prius first went on sale in Japan, it earned
the distinction of being the first mass-produced gasoline electric hybrid
vehicle ever sold. Now in its third-generation the Toyota Prius carries on
as a highly-efficient icon of the environmental movement. The distinct
look, practical hatchback design and five-passenger cabin of the Toyota
Prius remain for the third generation but are accompanied by a number of
notable improvements. Enhanced aerodynamics, faster acceleration, improved fuel economy
and new technologies combine to make this the best Prius yet.

Ultimate Hybrid Duel: New Prius vs. Honda Insight
FULL TOYOTA PRIUS VS. HONDA INSIGHT @ INSIDELINE.COM:
At the launch of the 2010 Toyota Prius, Bob Carter, group vice president
and general manager for Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., tells us, "We'll face
two challenges when the Prius goes on sale: the economy and the 2010 Honda
"The good news for consumers is that the market has plenty of room for both
the Prius and Insight in their respective segments," Carter adds. "Based on
our 2010 projections, the Prius can achieve a theoretical 7 percent share
of the industry's largest segment â€” midsize sedans. In the second-ranked
compact class, the Insight could achieve a 5 percent market share."
So it'll be a nice, peaceful coexistence for these two hybrid cars that
just happen to look almost exactly like each other. Don't believe that?
Neither do we.
As the U.S. economy continues its topsy-turvy performance, nobody's market
share is safe. So it actually matters which hybrid car is better â€” the
2010 Honda Insight, which went on sale March 24, or the 2010 Toyota Prius,
which hits dealers in late May.
The Insight has already proven itself against the 2009 Prius. But now that
the 2010 Toyota Prius has appeared with its bigger engine, all-new chassis
and 50-mpg EPA-combined fuel economy rating, it is a much tougher hybrid
