Thanks - the battery would be stored in the house so it would not lose a charge (we have done this with other cars - no problems). Got nervous though when Toyota told me car would have to be reprogrammed if taking the battery out "lost its memory".

I see no reason to take it out. Get the "tender" and it'll stay charged and this will also prevent freezing damage.

Hi - not sure if this question belongs here but I didn't get any responses under Nav.
I have a 2010 and my nav map shows icons for gas stations, restaurants, etc. I don't want these icons to show up but am having trouble removing them permanantly. Can anyone help with the instructions to do this?
Also, can anyone help me remove the split screen permanantly? Thanks,

A 2010 what? Toyota? Honda? Yugo? Have you no "Owner's Manual"?

Take it back to the dealership who will find the problem and repair it under warranty.

What the heck is a "glass door"?

Judging by the relatively low number of comments in this discussion, one could conclude that hybrids are quite reliable. Of course, the majority of hybrids are Priuses, but there haven't been a lot of complaints or concerns expressed about the other hybrids, either.

Seems like "maintenance" is maintenance, no matter what you drive---it seems to work out all the same, be it gas, diesel or hybrid.

My problem is not so much with the Honda Hybrid, but with the Honda dealership. They nickel and dime (more accurately, hundreds and two hundreds) me to death until it's plain that keeping the car is more expensive than buying it.
For instance, the oil shield under the oil filter was ripped off by a crummy dirt road. The Honda dealer wanted $130 to put on a new one, a piece of $5 or $10 material bolted to the underbody, and they refused to tack on the old one, which could easily be done with plastic ties--you know, like give a little service to a long-standing customer.
That's just one example. I have many others and I will never buy a Honda again.
