I am looking into buying the 2012 Civic Hybrid... Curious what others think of the navigation system? Are there any big issues/bugs with it? How does it compare to systems in other comparable hybrid vehicles? Thanks!

I just sold my 2006 HCH with nav. Very disappointed in the factory-installed nav system and the total lack of support from Honda. Funtionality was very good WHILE IT WAS WORKING PROPERLY. After about 3 years, however, the toggle switch stopped working. This prevented me from being able to pan around a map and select destinations using this feature. I asked my service manager about repair and he said the only choice was to purchase a new unit for $4,000! Rediculous response from Honda. Instead, I bought a Garmin for $200 with much better features and lifetime upgrades for another $80. Honda wants $160 for an upgrade disk. The broken feature resulted in a devaluation of the sale price when I finally sold this car. In addition, the continually variable transmission has a well documented problem with "shutter" when starting from a dead stop and the dealer estimated $2000 minimum to correct this problem. Honda was also very dishonest about a well known rear wheel alignment problem due to parts being manufactured incorrectly that resulted in premature tire wear. Honda is no longer the quality company it once was. I recommend avoiding Honda altogether.
