Having problems with your 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid ?

I had to replace tires twice in 30,000 mile!

\015 I own a 2006 Honda Civic Hybrid. I had to put new tires on the rear at 15, 000 miles and again at 30,000 miles. The tires are actually shredding right down to the steel belt on the inner half of the bottoms of the tires. I thought that perhaps it was that the car needed another alignment, but it was within the specs, therefore not needing it. Would you have any idea what could be causing this to happen?\015\012\015\012I was also curious as to why my car does not get the high gas mileage that was promised when I purchased the vehicle. I just drove from NJ to NC and back and averaged 40 mpg on the highway. I was so disappointed.\015\012\015\012Thanks. \015\012\015\012Cathy Pietras\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 26-10-2020

Answers :

As far as the tire issue goes u have a very serious alignment problem, this can be caused by worn parts in the suspension and adjustments that are not correct, most tire shops will do an inspection for worn parts and alignment issues for free, they will report what needs to be done to correct the problem, be advised though that once a tire starts to wear in an uneven manner it will continue to wear that way even after the suspension problems are repaired.

\015\012On the gas mileage issue, that is a very trickey question to answer, fuel mileage is affected by so many outside factors that it is difficult to say whether you do or don't have a problem, but in most cases if the tire pressure is good and you have no check engine light on then most likely the fuel mileage is not going to improve much, the tire wear problem however will affect mileage so have the problem corrected.
