Problems with the Electrical System

Like many new vehicles, the 2017 Civic is fitted with an abundance of cutting-edge technologies. And for such high-tech gadgetry to work, the car’s many computers must communicate with one another over a data bus.

The electronics onboard the Civic are as complicated as they sound – and it’s that complexity that often causes problems. Issues with the computer network or electrical wiring often lead to a flurry of warning lights illuminated on the dash. Certain vehicle functions may also stop working properly.

On the NHTSA website, one owner states, “Complete safety system failure. Car began throwing warnings of all electrical systems having problems. For example, TPMS, electric parking brake system, electric power steering, hill start assist and more.”

Yet another complaint reads, “My 2017 Honda Civic hatchback, with 13,015 miles on it, was in my carport and had only been sitting 2 days without being driven when I turned the car on and the car began throwing warnings of all electrical systems having problems.”

Another electrical issue the Civic has is that of soy-coated wiring; a delectable meal for rodents. Rats and mice are drawn to the product and often chew right through it, causing all kinds of issues.

On the NHTSA website, an owner complains, My Honda Civic 2017 was in my driveway not moving when I turned the car on and all my warning lights came on and I had no power steering. I had my car towed to Honda and they saw my sub wiring harness was chewed which caused the problem. Honda says this wiring is made from soy based material which attracts rodents.”

To be fair, Honda isn’t the only automaker to use soy-based wiring. The product is prevalent in many new cars, as are the related rodent-induced electrical problems.

So far, Honda has yet to come forward with a recall for the onslaught of warning lights, rodent concerns and electrical gremlins.

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2017 Civic Electrical Problems:

I was leaving a parking lot, approaching a gate with an inductive-loop traffic detector, which can detect vehicles passing or arriving at a certain point, once a vehicle is detected the gate would open. I was approaching, maybe 50 feet from the gate, at approximately 5 mph, when the engine of my 2017 Honda Civic revved up and accelerated forward towards the gate. My foot was not on the accelerator, as I was approaching the gate which was still closed. There was no debris on the floor board or anything obstructing the pedals that would have caused it to depress the accelerator. I had to abruptly depress the brake pedal to avoid striking the gate. My Honda is equipped with Honda sensing and I have no idea how this could have occurred, may be an electrical issue with the throttle sensor because the “brake” warning was on, it observed the gate.

Complete safety system failure. Car began throwing warnings of all electrical systems having problems. For example TPMS, electric parking break, brake system, electric power steering, hill start assist and more.

Starting about 9 months ago I have had several occasions of electrical issues on my 2017 Honda Civic that is less than a year and a half old and only has 18k miles on it. It first started around the fall last year with my car repeatedly popping the trunk when I would not be near it and would come out to it in the parking lot at work and find my trunk wide open. Later on I found out the trunk popping open would force the car alarm to go off for several hours and occasionally would lead to a dead battery. When I took it in to have the issue investigated the technicians told me they couldn’t diagnose the problem and that it shouldn’t continue (it has continued and in fact is happening as I type this in my apartment). The next issue occurred about 2 months ago while I was driving down the interstate in the pouring rain and my windshield wipers stopped working completely. Upon having this problem inspected the technicians determined it was “faulty” windshield wiper motors and had both replaced. The latest issue that occurred was as I was driving to Pensacola from Washington and stopped off at a rest stop in the middle of nowhere Oregon for some sleep. Upon waking up (3hrs after I shut the car off) I discovered my car was doing some glitch thing with all the lights and dashboard where it was acting like I was turning it off and on. I had nothing turned on or plugged in when I went to sleep and when I woke up the car was completely dead and the electrical system had totally disabled the car.

Problems with the Transmission

Many new vehicles, including the 2017 Honda Civic, are switching from regular automatic transmissions to continuously variable transmissions (CVTs). CVTs use a set of pulleys and a steel belt to transfer power, instead of traditional, planetary gearsets.

So far, the CVTs found in Honda vehicles have been less problematic than offerings from most other automakers. Yet, there are still accounts of units misbehaving; coming out of park and rolling away.

On the NHTSA website, one complaint reads, “The contact owns a 2017 Honda Civic. While the vehicle was parked, it rolled away independently. The failure recurred twice. As a result, the contact injured her foot and required medical attention. The vehicle was taken to Auburn Honda but the cause of the failure was undetermined. The vehicle was not repaired.”

Another owner states, “The vehicle was running and in park, unoccupied. Vehicle rolled away despite the transmission being in park position and struck a garage door.”

So far, Honda has not released any recalls or public campaigns to address the CVT issues.

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2017 Civic Transmission Problems:

Vehicle hesitating, failing to achieve more than 25 mph. Vehicle has lost driven gear at high speed and abruptly returned. Transmission was replaced, vehicle exhibiting similar symptoms. Transmission related grinding noise on warm-start, engine rattles on cold start. Collision mitigating braking system had a problem that was addressed by the dealer. Engine currently leaking large amounts of oil from around the head and onto surrounding wiring harnesses, a potential source of fire. This vehicle is not and never will be safe.

Since the first day driving less than 10 miles home from the dealership I have had numerous electrical, a c and drive train or wheel problems. The vehicle had been transferred. from a Santa Barbara ca dealership to a Honda dealership in san Luis Obispo ca. They called me on a Sunday to say the car was there it was raining and dark. Car had 400+ miles on it and safety check had not been done since it was originally received when it was 0. On the 7th of a 10 mile ride home the whole. entire dashboard first sizzled out like an old computer. monitor going bad then. completely went blank. I could not tell how fast I was going. At that point I had not yet hooked up my phone. to apple. play which is a whole other software endless. Glitch bag of issues. I have had the car for about a year. It popped the hood and almost burned my hands on the hood arm. The digital dash turns black at least 2-3 times a month (no miles. per hour, etc). Every other day my in dash factory screen radio goes black. The car unlocks itself overnight every few days. Most if this increases with frequency when it rains. At least one time a week the car won’t unlock by touch even though I have the key on me. Since day one the climate control will randomly turn on full blast. Since day one right front loud bearing noise near tie rod arm and loud knock/bearing/bump noise in drive train area; under dash and in and inside doors and sun roof rattle so loud I have to turn up the music not to hear it like parts are loose, at 9 months hot full blast 90+ degree heat comes on when the a c is turned on (stuck. in heat mode) eventually after being turned off will reset itself then work normal. This has happened again 4 times in the past week. Since day one turn signals get stuck and don’t disengage unless forcibly forced. No clear coat on door jams. Hood, trunk and doors have uneven gaps/misaligned. Cracked lights

Problems with the Engine

Direct fuel injection – a technology that squirts fuel directly into the engine versus the intake manifold – is designed to improve efficiency and performance. And typically, it does. Unfortunately, because gas goes right into the cylinder, it’s more likely to wash past the piston rings and into the oil pan. Unforeseen problems, such as fuel entering the engine oil, may result. Honda Civic owners are all too familiar with this problem. What they find is that fuel ends up in the oil, creating an overfull level and obnoxious odor.

On Edmunds.com, one owner complains, “I love love my hatchback sport civic. Until about 3500 miles – the check engine light popped up and disabled all the safety features – ABS, parking breaks, etc. Brought to the dealership – was told that IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE THAT THE GAS MIXES WITH THE OIL. There are no current fixes. I was told to wait until they find a solution. All they did was turn off the warning and told to observe it. WHAT?? Observe the gas mixing with the oil?? I’m currently in the process of contacting a lawyer. This is unacceptable. Take your money elsewhere until they fix this”

Another on the NHTSA website writes, “Fuel is mixing with oil. Oil dipstick reads higher when checked. Engine performance is sluggish. When checking oil, there is a strong gasoline odor. As result, oil is significantly thinner when checked.”

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2017 Civic Engine Problems:

I have a 2017 Honda Civic with the 1.5 liter turbo. I started seeing lots of information on the civic forum about oil dilution so I decided to have my engine oil analyzed. The report came back saying that the amount of fuel in my oil was greater than 5% which was deemed critical . This condition will cause engine failure and possible unsafe conditions.

The engine would shut off while driving-happened numerous times, including the freeway…yet Honda said they couldn’t find any issues.

Problems with the Brakes and Collision Mitigation

Automatic emergency braking, or as Honda likes to call it, collision mitigation, is a safety feature that stops the vehicle in emergency situations. The function is part of the Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver assistance technologies.

Collision mitigation uses radar and a camera to sense when a crash is about to occur. Signals from these devices are sent to the computer network onboard the car. If the system determines a collision is about to happen, it instructs the vehicle to apply the brakes automatically.

Automatic emergency braking might sound great – and when it’s working properly, it is. Problems ensue whenthe system is on the fritz, causing the vehicle to either brake unexpectedly, or not stop when required. And that’s exactly what happens to the 2017 Honda Civic.

“Every now and then there will be brake problem while I’m driving. Car will stop in the road for no reason,” writes one owner on the NHTSA website.

Another driver complains, “I was driving the speed limit at 40 mph. The collision mitigation braking system fired on an open road causing my car to stop abruptly. This caused me to get rear-ended by the car behind me. There wasn’t a car in front of me, it fired erratically. Police report was filed. After taking the car to the dealer, the dealer has indicated “there is nothing wrong” even though there were witnesses at the scene as well as it causing an accident.”

In 2017, Honda issued a technical service bulletin (TSB) addressing the same problem present on other models. The TSB (TSB 17-064) instructs dealers to update the radar unit’s software to address the concern. So far, Honda has not publicly tackled the matter on the 2017 Civic.

Here are some actual complaints logged with the NHTSA about the 2017 Civic Service Brakes Problems.

Electronic braking failure and miscellaneous electric glitches. Automatic parking brake system failure warning light and brakes are locked in park. I have had 3 different electric glitches. First less than 2 weeks of purchasing my 2017 civic turn signal was stuck on and would not turn off. Second 1 month after dash screen would not load. It was “buffering / thinking” took it to and dealer couldn’t find the cause but fixed with a hard reset and it started working again and checked for software updates and it was current. Third problem a 2 weeks later, started the car and got brake failure warning light and check engine light. Car wouldn’t move parking brakes locked up. Tried to push the brake hold and parking brake to manually disengage but wouldn’t. Had it towed to the Honda dealership. They did a second hard reset. I question if my Civic was part of the 2016 / partial 2017 recall for electric glitch that included the parking brake issue.

Steering and brakes locked and stopped working while driving at about 15-20 miles per hour on a residential street

I was left stranded three times today in my 2017 Honda Civic EX-T due to the electric parking brake failure. My vehicle was parked in a parking lot and I couldn’t go anywhere. I wasn’t close to home. I was in another state.

Description
This is a known issue with hondas from 2016 and up where the body control module (bcm) is faulty and malfunctioning. When the car turns off, it turns itself back on and makes noises to turn itself back on. This issue may cause possible electrical issues that may short and start a fire internally. Honda dealerships across the country have known about this issue for many years, yet they have not fixed the problem. There are youtube videos entailing the same occurrences in a lot of other people's cars, including myself. My vehicle has not been inspected but spoke with several honda dealerships about the issue, and they are all aware of the issue, yet have no solution but to replace it. The bcm is on backorder for months and people are without cars to use due to the repeated occurrences for everybody. There are no signs of any issues before the faulty bcm malfunctions. Dealerships charge 00-2500 for car repairs that they are not able to fix due to the backorder of the component. If this issue has been going on for several years, why hasn't honda fixed and replace the issue, instead of knowing the issue and making their customers pay a large amount of money to fix what they know will go wrong? It is unethical and demoralizing to have a company take advantage of its customers. Link to the video: https://www. Youtube. Com/watch? V=bkdfkzsnxt0

This complaint is specifically about the a/c evaporator in my honda civic. After taking my car in for the 2nd time in about 13 months (to the honda dealership), the a/c system appears to be faulty on my vehicle. After online research, it appears that this is very common issue for many 2016-2019 honda civic models and it's hard to imagine the company isn't aware. Thus far, the company has offered to cover the condenser issue (after the company was in a class action lawsuit) but will not cover the a/c evaporator, which costs over 00. Given the recent heat waves, the safety of myself and my passengers are potentially compromised until this issue is fixed, especially those with disabilities. It would be highly appreciated if this matter is investigated and resolved for all honda civic owners. Thank you!

1. Driving on the freeway with multiple lanes. I driver cuts across multiple lanes and even though they only stayed 1 second in front of me and jumped into another lane, honda thinks it's time to apply the brake after they have merged over to next lane. Applying the brakes when nobody is in front of me! 35mph 2. I can be 25 feet behind a car. That car happens to be making a turn at an intersection. It clears my path, but it's stuck just at the corner of the other street because traffic isn't flowing for them. I have 100% clear of path. And guess what, honda decides to slam on the brakes because it saw the vehicle is about a foot away from my lane stopped. Honda can't tell the difference if I'm going straight or following the car that turned so it thinks it's better to slam on the brakes when in question. Very dangerous! 40mph 3. When on a multi lane freeway. I have no car in front of me but there is a vehicle in another lane. As I try to pass the vehicle, my civic applies the brakes when the road isn't straight but very slightly curved. In my opinion it's not calculating at all that we are in a curve. It seems like honda is not using vision from camera to tell the lanes and lane markers and also the steering wheel. But it only detects that somehow we will collide. 65mph a dangerous system and shouldn't be allowed until the bug is fixed with software update. So far honda hasn't acknowledged anything. I have to gather all my footage and share it with you, maybe through youtube? There are no warnings, no problems with the car. This is clearly a software issue. Honda dealer told me there is no software update for this when I question honda serramonte colma ca when I brought my vehicle in for failed ac.

2017 honda civic the ac stopped cooling in the middle of summer in summer california where the temperature is regularly above 110 degrees. An ac failure in this area is a safety issue. After paying 9 for diagnosis they said the evaporator is leaking. The warranty was extended for all 2017 honda civics for leaks of the condenser. They also have similar complaints for the compressors. We have 3 other older hondas that have never had an evaporator start leaking and when we said that to the service tech, he said that newer hondas are less reliable. This is at a honda dealership, so it's quite the sales pitch for buying a new honda. It seems obvious that the 2017 honda civic has an overall problem with the ac. I was quoted 00 for repair, but I am not convinced that is the problem. I wish I hadn't taken it to a dealership to start with, but I was sure that they would be honest and cover the repair under warranty. A new aftermarket evaporator from a very reputable company costs under so that's a lot of labor costs added on. Civicx. Com has so many reports of this problem that it's over 12 pages long. This problem should definitely be covered under the 10 year extended warranty.

Last week the ac in my '17 honda civic hatchback went out and I took it to the local dealership to have it diagnosed. Upon review, they informed me the ac's evaporator unit is leaking and it will cost 0 to replace. I'm aware there is a recall (tsb 19-091) on the condenser from 2016-2018 civics. Honda came out with a tsb regarding this issue, all 2016-2018 civics have 10yr/unlimited mile warranties now on condensers. Tsb 19-091, dated dec 11th 2019. Per the bulletin: " american honda is extending the warranty on the a/c condenser to 10 years from the original date of purchase with unlimited miles. This warranty only covers vehicles that have a defective a/c condenser from the factory. The a/c condenser was not manufactured to specification. As a result, tiny holes may develop in the condenser tube walls that allows the refrigerant to leak out. " however, there seems to be an equally large number of complaints online about compressors and evaporators failing in those years of civic as well. Every single private mechanic I spoke to said they's seen dozens of '17 civics with the exact same issue and to take it back to honda. As such, it turns out failure across all the components of the ac system (compressors/condensers/evaporators) is relatively common after only a handful of years. I believe an amended bulletin should be provided to cover all repairs across the ac system. As a 1st responder, it is not safe for me to drive this vehicle to/from work in the 115 degree weather that we get here in fresno, ca. There are multiple articles explaining these exact malfunctions as well: https://www. Civicx. Com/forum/threads/2016-2019-evaporator-failures-leaks. 52319/ https://www. Reddit.

I believe the issue I'm about to explain is with the eps rack assembly. I am deeply concerned for my safety and the safety of other riding in my vehicle as it is difficult sometimes to keep the vehicle on the road due to the steering sticking at random times. Many other 2016+ honda civic owners are experiencing this problem as there are several forums currently viewed on the internet discussing this issue. When driving the vehicle, the steering wheel "sticks" in one spot when turning and sometimes takes a considerable force to break the steering wheel free. This issue seems to happen after the car/engine is warm (20-30 minutes into driving). This problem started out as minor and sporadic, but has become much worse in the past month or so. I will be making an appointment with my local honda dealer for evaluation.

I am reaching out regarding an issue in my 2017 honda civic ex-t. Over the past few months, I have noticed that the steering wheel seems to "stick" or feel "notchy" when making small adjustments from center (12 o clock) position. This is most noticeable when driving on a long, straight stretch of freeway requiring minor adjustments to keep the car centered. The steering will stick when attempting to making small corrections, requiring extra force to overcome resistance. After providing more force, the steering will suddenly give way, typically causing overcorrection in the opposite direction. As a result, I have to weave back and forth in my lane to keep the car straight. This issue is most pronounced when the ambient temperature is hot, and the car has been driven for at least 20-30 minutes. Interestingly, the issue will disappear if the weather is cooler or if the car is driven for short distances in the city. I have brought the car to a shop before, but they were unable to reproduce the issue. It is hard to reproduce because the car needs to be driven for 20-30 minutes, preferably on the highway, before the steering stiffness occurs. It appears that this is a well-known issue at this point, and I have seen multiple reports online about the issue. From what I understand, the only fix at this point is to replace the eps steering rack (part 53650-tbc-a02). However, it seems that some people have had the issue reoccur even after replacing the rack. I believe this issue is a major safety concern. The steering becomes unpredictable when driving in a straight line. I am forced to constantly overcorrect and weave back and forth when driving on the highway at 70+ mph, thus dramatically increasing the risk of an accident. There needs to be some sort of safety recall for this issue, as it seems to be a manufacturer issue with the eps motor that has affected several vehicles.

My ac stopped blowing cold air in october 2021. The car has 32,000 miles. (there is an error in the dealer report.) I brought the car to an independent mechanic. He said he could not fix the problem because only honda dealers have the proper coolant for the system. The dealer said the front of the compressor is leaking at the gasket and needs to be replaced at a cost of 50. This seems to be a common problem in this generation of honda civics. Honda has extended the warranty for the condenser, but not the compressor. They need to extend the warranty for the compressor as well. This is an unhealtful situation because leaking freon is not good and because now I have to drive with the windows open and breathe in the exhaust of other cars. Thank you.

,537. 50. I appreciate the technicians that repaired the car. The failure of the condenser and the evaporator are indicative of the defective and deficient quality of the parts used and are a harbinger of more related parts to fail, namely the compressor, all tubing and related seals, and the dryer. These parts are not covered under any warranty. The only parts of reliable value are the knobs and buttons on the dashboard. I was not able to get possession of the evaporator that was removed because I did not make the request when the service order was written. It would have been helpful to evaluate the part for failure. I am not sure why honda does not care to evaluate failed parts. The remedy for all affected civic owners would be for the nhtsa to direct honda usa to immediately remove every air conditioning component and replace the entire system with a highly reliable oem quality air conditioning system that is immune from failure. The cost of this resolution would be paid entirely out of honda executive management compensation. The nhtsa and honda usa need to understand that safety cannot be compromised!

It's the condenser. Tell them you want the condenser changed. Nothing else! You have control of what they fix on your car. They know what's wrong without lifting the hood. My ac is ice cold. Took 3 years but it works. You don't have to be charged for diagnosis. And everyone that was cheated and treated unfairly there is a honda number of they're us home office. Call tell them.

The problem is most noticeable at highway speeds when the temperature is over 75 degrees.

The compressor is not covered under warranty or recall and we may have to spend about 00 for it. This 2017 honda civic was purchased by us on 8/31/2020 from another honda dealer who (we found out later) had already replaced the condenser under the same recall notice on 8/6/2020 before selling it to us.

Honda came out with a tsb regarding this issue, all 2016-2018 civics have 10yr/unlimited mile warranties now on condensers. Tsb 19-091, dated dec 11th 2019. Per the bulletin: " american honda is extending the warranty on the a/c condenser to 10 years from the original date of purchase with unlimited miles. This warranty only covers vehicles that have a defective a/c condenser from the factory. The a/c condenser was not manufactured to specification. As a result, tiny holes may develop in the condenser tube walls that allows the refrigerant to leak out. " however, there seems to be an equally large number of complaints online about compressors and evaporators failing in those years of civic as well. As such, it turns out failure across all the components of the ac system (compressors/condensers/evaporators) is relatively common after only a handful of years. I believe an amended bulletin should be provided to cover all repairs across the ac system. As a father, with two kids under the age of 2, it's not suitable for them to ride in a vehicle without ac. Especially with the 100+ temps we get in the middle of kansas in summer. Additionally, the lack of a function ac debilitates the function of the defrost making it extremely dangerous to drive in foggy, rainy, and/or humid conditions.

This problem was reported to american service honda on june 4 2021, but because I am days past the expiration date of warranty honda refuses to diagnose the issue without cost to me. I did not immediately report it when first noticed because I had not realized how recent this car was purchased. But like stated prior, honda has confirmed the same issue for other of their models in recent years. I have owned other vehicles like toyotas and other brands to which do not have the same issue so it is not due to sun damage nor wear. Another issue is that the window trims on all passenger and driver windows are breaking shrinking and falling apart. Again this is also known problem with honda cars in consumer reports. Org all throughout the u. S . This may be of safety concern if they fall off while driving I wouldn't want it to land on another cars front window or perhaps the windows can be damaged or cracked. One last thing that is also a common issue for hondas, that is an issue for mine is that the front bumper is very low it gets stuck on parking bumpers this causes the sides to start breaking and if it were to fall off it would be a major safety concern.

2020 I haven't used the car much do to covid-19. Maybe 1000 miles. February 2021 I noticed the cold air conditioning doesn't work properly. Seems that the air only blows. I just discovered today that honda seems to have issues with ac condensers. I sent an email to honda to see if my vin has the warranty for the condenser. I will inspect it and see if that's what is going on. Car has 40k miles. 2017 sedan ex 2. 0l need ac to defog windshield for visibility! And keep me cool so I can operate the vehicle safely! I'm not sure if it failed at some point in 2020. But I just noticed it now during some very hot days. Automatic breaking should have recall. When I drive and someone in front jumps across my lane to get into another lane, the car will slam the brakes after the car in front is already left the lane and it's inside another lane. That's a very delayed response and unnecessary because other cars behind me need to get on the brake hard to avoid hitting me. I try to floor it in situations like this but the system won't let me. The only thing this leaves me to do is disabled the system by holding down the button. But that removes the safety features. Sometimes someone in front of me brakes fast suddenly. I jump to another lane and the system applies the brakes once I already jumped into another lane with nobody in it. However if there is someone behind, then the person honks because the car just slammed on the brakes! I have video proof of this. It's an accident waiting to happen

My car alarm randomly started going off while parked for three days, three different times of the day. The last time it happened back to back at 2am while parked. I tried turning it off with my key fob and it would not register. I opened the car with the key in the fob and pushed the start button, the engine started and I remained parked. Then I tried turning the car off but it would not turn off, instead the lights flickered on the dash and the car stayed on. I tried it 2 more times and it finally turned off the engine but not the dash. All the warning signs came on the car including a break systems error and a tire pressure error. After this, I took the battery out of my fob and now the car battery is dead. I powered up the battery today but the car won't start. The dash turns on but then it just flickers and gives me all the same warning signs. I found there were recalls for this issue on 2016 civics and that the recall should be extended to 2017 and 2018 civic as well. Mine is a 2017 civi and it's having all these issues that could be deadly if they happen on the freeway.

My 2017 honda civic ex-t coupe shuts down my digital screen and audio system with the message "amp is in protection mode" this then makes any hands free devices turn completely off from the car. This is a safety issue because in my state, cell phones and any other form of electronics are not permitted. So when being on the phone or using gps it shuts everything down and thats a major safety concern. I recently went to many honda dealers and they have contacted honda north america but they told me honda does not know what the problem could be and that they recalled the 2016 honda civics for a similar issue, but since they didn't recall the 2017 honda civics then there is nothing they can do. This problem is stressing me out because I can't follow the directions on my gps or answer important calls if needed. Also I went to audio techs who told me this is the most bizarre situation they've ever experienced. I do not think it is fair for me to pay all of this money on my new car (only owned for 3 months). I am also a first time buyer and this makes me regret ever buying a car! The vehicle is on for a few minutes and then the message occurs and then shuts off everything. I even got my whole audio system and amp taken out for further tests and no-one seems to know. If you guys can help in anyway to recall the 2017 civics with this issue that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

My son and I purchased a certified pre-owned 2017 honda civic sedan on dec 3rd from honda of lisle il. The car was purchased with 22,100 miles. My son was driving on dec 10th and stopped for gas for the first time. He got back in the car and started it up. He noticed the engine light came on. He immediately cam home and called for an appointment for the next day to have it checked out at the dealer. As he was driving to the dealer he got about 1 mile down the road when all of a sudden black smoke started pouring out of the engine compartment and the car froze up and immediately burst into flames. Thankfully it happened on a side street as he was slowing down for a traffic light. I had it towed to the dealer. Even though there is a law that they need to take it back within 15 days or less than 500 miles, they essentially told me it wasn't their problem and I needed to get my insurance involved. A fire inspector hired by the insurance company looked at the totaled vehicle and suspected the fire started near the battery. My insurance company informed me that they would have to have a fire engineer inspect it at a cost of ,000 therefore they will not pursue further. This should not have happened to a certified car with 22k miles. Full video https://youtu. Be/ttsvy7zgmw8

Had to open the car with the manual key, since the car would not respond to the key fob. Started the car to see what was going on, when I went to turn it off again, it refused and wouldn't turn off. I proceeded to call roadside assistance after multiple failed attempts to get the car to respond to the key fob and they turned the car off. Two days later I drove car to the dealership, the whole way there all the warning lights were on and all the safety features were disabled and not working. Dealership refused to cooperate or even acknowledge the issue at hand.

The car was bought new, I'm the original owner, only has 14,600 miles. Dealership manager told us that corporate honda commanded him not to touch the vehicle and to tell us to pick it up. Drove the car back still broken, with all safety features not working, warning lights on, and the alarm continues to set itself off.

However, when I took the car to the dealer, they would not look at the car unless I agreed to pay 0 for the inspection, in case the inspection shows the condenser is not leaking.

On my honda civic I have the oil dilution problem which was verified by a mechanic. When I had the oil change they said gasoline came out with the oil. Two days before I went to get the oil change the fuel in the oil caused my engine to stall and me and my friend almost got rear ended by many cars flying up on us. We were barely able to get just barely inches off the freeway but every car came within inches of hitting our car and almost killing us. After a while the car eventually started back up and we continued down the freeway only to have the car stall again and we nearly getting hit again by another car. I'm actually afraid to even drive my car now after this incident and I've been reading about other people online having the same problem. I think this is a serious safety concern and honda should recall mine and others cars as soon as possible for this could cause fatalities. I have the 1. 5 l turbo engine by the way and I've heard complaints about others with this motor with the same exact problem. I'm not sure exactly how the fuel mixing with the oil causes the engine to stall. All I know is consumer reports has other people mentioning their engine stalling. I believe it could be something the engine detects in the oil and shuts the engine down as a way of protecting it from possible low oil pressure because of the fuel. By the way I haven't had any problems with the car for two years and this is the first incident that has happened. Recently over the last couple months I haven't been driving that much and therefore the oil was diluting with the fuel more than normal so that may have something to do with it. And also I live in a hot climate in northern california. Honda thinks that it's only happening in colder colder climates which is absolutely absurd. You can literally smell gasoline on the dipstick and the dipstick was 1/2 qt. Over. Still had 50% oil life.

Reading through the world wide web or internet, thousands, if not tens of thousands of owners with this same issue due to a faulty ac condenser from the factory. Honda has extended the condenser warranty but has not issued a full recall or warranty on the other parts/labor involved. For example, expensive refrigerants, parts, and labor. The first condenser replaced in january 2020 and lost all refrigerant in october 2020. I took my civic into the honda dealership and got it tested for a/c leaks in september 2020. I was told it was not the condenser but another part next to the firewall, costing 440 dollars. I took it to another honda dealership a few weeks later and was told that there was little to no refrigerant. I paid over 300 dollars to get the a/c checked and the test was done with a dye solution that can be seen by uv light. There was no indication of leaks during the diagnosis. The refrigerant should be tested further or honda should replace all defective air conditioning parts all around. I know this issue will continue to occur because of underlying problems with honda original manufactured a/c parts. Very respectfully, a worried parent

The a/c condenser located in the cabin dash was replaced under recall earlier in the year for having a freon leak in the cabin. 6 months later the a/c is not working again, and the dealership suspects that the evaporator has a leak. Researching online yielded me similar results of owners reporting a condenser leak and then an evaporator leak with freon flowing into the cabin air. I assume being in a closed cabin with leaking freon is what spurred a recall on the condensers and, in my opinion, the evaporator should be in a similar scenario

Adaptive cruise control will fail to turn on. After attempting to turn on, accelerator pedal will have . 5-1 second delay when attempting to accelerate from stop/idle causing near collisions. Since purchase, there have been 10-15 episodes where I attempt to turn on adaptive cruise control while on the freeway but the system will not engage. I only get 3 beeps and an "acc off" indication on the dash. Once this happens, for the rest of that drive, there is a pedal dead zone/severe acceleration delay when starting from a stop. This delay in acceleration has caused several close calls when pulling out with obstructed views as I press the gas pedal but get no response for what feels like 1 second while another car comes into view and is fast approaching. Once the initial adaptive cruise control failure occurs, acc and traditional cruise control will both fail to start across multiple drives and engine starts. The severe pedal delay will return across engine starts as soon as the acc button is pressed. The only way to recover the functionality of acc and normal cruise control once in this state is to remove power from the battery and wait a minute, then power on the engine and let systems restart. Car has been to dealers close to 10 times for this issue. In consultation with honda techline the following parts have been replaced but problem continues at random intervals: forward looking camera, forward radar sensor, main instrument cluster, pedal sensor, windshield, alternator, battery. Appears to be some kind of software bug in adaptive cruise control system that causes system to crash and not work again until engine computer reset. I'd gladly work directly with honda for troubleshooting, I'm 3-4 people removed when working with the dealership and I feel like all my info is not being communicated correctly.

I purchased a 2017 civic hatchback ex w/ sensing in late may 2017. In may 2020, the ac stopped working. They told me it was the condenser and that they could give a "goodwill" replacement for about 0. At that point I was aware of the condenser extended warranty so accepted due to the compressor being the stated issue. With the pandemic I have not been driving a lot, but I noticed in september 2020 that my ac was not working again. I brought it back to the dealer, and now they say it is the condenser that is broken. However, the sb-19-091 does not apply to hatchbacks. This is ridiculous as it's clear even from a cursory search that hatchbacks are also impacted. They offered another "goodwill" fix that is even more expensive than the first one. When I called corporate they initially refused to forward my case. It's suspicious that the first time I brought it in they said the condenser, which at that point they never told me was not covered, was not leaking and instead said the compressor. Now, it is suddenly the condenser and is not in warranty either. I expect if the condenser gets fix something else will be wrong. Honda needs to stop deflecting customers on this issue and fix their cars. This is a safety issue as it gets very hot in my region and it is not healthy to remain in an enclosed hot space for hours at a time.

I purchase my 2017 honda civic in november of 2016. Soon after its warranty expired the air conditioner began getting warmer and not cooling down as much. The driver's side now blows either hot or warm air and the passenger's side blows cool but not cold air. The coolest the air gets coming from the passenger side vents is 61f but the passenger compartment barely cools down on warm and hot days. The air is supposed to be around 45f as it exits the vents. I purchased the vehicle with the expectation that I could cool the passenger compartment on hot days. Driving in the heat makes me sleepy. I called my local honda dealership and they wanted close to 0 dollars just to diagnose the problem and the cost could go up significantly depending on the problem. This should not happen so soon to a new car. I had a 2000 civic for 17 years and never had a problem with the ac. I found online that many other people are having this difficulty. A recall should be issued. With the ac problem the defroster now doesn't not work as well as it had done when the car was new.

The head unit/display stopped working about a week ago. At first, nothing would come on. I thought it may have been a fuse, or it needed rebooted. I disconnected the battery and it still continued to act up. The back-up and passenger side cameras won't work properly, the climate controls won't work as I can't change the air flow or temperature, the bluetooth won't work or connect, and the audio controls won't work or are severely delayed. This creates multiple safety issues while driving: 1. The audio will randomly turn on, and at high volumes due to the fact that I cannot control the volume or turn it on or off. 2.

The leaking condenser was the same problem identified in service bulletin but this vehicle vin was not identified. The recall or covered repairs should be expanded to cover all trim lines and vehicles. Honda only covered 1/2 of repair costs. The ac condenser leak resulted in no ac.

I've only had my car a year. My car had been using oil for 2 weeks recently. I had to put oil in it every other day. My mechanic said it should not be using oil like that. I had it inspected and it passed and had my oil changed which I do every 3,000-5,000 miles. My emission control problem light came on. I called the honda dealership (not where I bought my vehicle) and took my car to them, but on the way there, my car started stalling and all the lights started flashing on my dashboard and it was smoking out of the back of my car. I had to pull over and have my car towed to the dealership. It took them two days to tell me that it was the turbo charger that needed replacing on my 2017 honda civic hatchback. This car is only 3 years old!! I am very upset and have only had my car for a year! I do not have the money to pay 00 on a car that I'm still paying on. Very mad at honda!

Lane monitoring system provides inconsistent warnings. This has been noted when the vehicle is in motion while I drive through the city and also on the highways. It sometimes without warning adjusts the steering of the vehicle. Brake monitoring system, when it does provide warning, provides warnings so late that a collision would be unavoidable. Tire pressure monitoring system does not provide adequate information to allow for an appropriate response of the driver. No feedback from the calibration mode of the tpms. Once the system provides its first alarm, doesn't respond well to calibration. My system now alarms about every 60-100 miles. The adaptive cruise control is scary. While it is expected that in especially hilly terrain that the cruise control would vary a bit (a couple of mph either direction), the system sometimes does not engage, sometimes turns itself off without warning, provides inconsistent warning of when the vehicle interval is not maintained, but the biggest problem is that it does not maintain the set point. For example yesterday, acc set at 42 mph. Speed limit was 40 mph. I was descending a hill and manually disengaged the acc when the vehicle speed exceeded 57 mph. Same trip -- acc set at 67 mph, speed limit at 65 mph; acc disengaged manually when vehicle speed approached 76 mph. Third instance, acc set at 56 mph, speed limit was 55 mph, acc manually disengaged at 63 mph. When acc first engaged, speed is at the set point. Then the system can't maintain the speed and consistently runs 1-2 mph below the set point. Hence, me setting the acc 1-2 mph above the speed limit. Believe that these are all part of the honda sensing system which was part of the touring package, which is what I have. The 2017 cr-v models with the same system have a pending class action lawsuit. Honda will not respond to our inquiries.

Luckily we pulled over just in time to watch the car go up in flames and explode. I have contacted 3 dealerships, including their service team, honda financial, honda general, and the honda plant in indiana. Every one of them has shown no compassion or interest in finding out why this happened. Does it take someone to die to take this serious?

The problem started a few months ago when I noticed that the steering wheel would start being sticky, stiff and jerky. The steering wheel would pull to the right and have this subtle movements, it would cause resistance. This was not frequent but the problem would show up occasionally. I have reported the issue to 3 different honda dealerships with no solution. I have had 2 alignments on my car but that did not resolve the problem either. The stick/jerk pull would start at about 30/40 miles into my drive and turning left or right would cause me to pull the steering wheel in the opposite direction. Reading civic forms, many are saying civic has the eps rack so that's causing this jerky pull. *tr

The dealer determined that the condenser had failed and that many 2016 and 2017 honda have had this problem. The part is on a national back order and they haven't been able to get the part. I opened a case with honda customer service and it appears that there are over 3000 cars with this problem. As of today, 7/19, their best estimate is that they may have the part on 7/25. No guarantee. My car will be out of service for nearly three weeks at the least. More importantly, many of these cars are being driven in this heat ,without a/c, which is definitely an unsafe condition.

I do oil change by myself. Here I am reporting fuel dilution of engine oil issue on my car. The second last time of my car's oil change was on march 16 2019. I followed the manual strictly to perform the oil change as well as the oil filter replacement. I added 3. 7 qt of new motor oil (mobil 1 advanced fuel economy full synthetic 0w20), which is the volume specified on the manual book. Last weekend on july 7 2019 I did oil change again, still following the manual book strictly. What made me concerned was that the volume of that used motor oil was clearly greater than what I added on march 16. The motor oil I purchased came with sealed bottles, each containing 1 qt volume. I was surprised to find that the used oil fulfilled 4 bottles, which was 10% more than what I added 3 months before. This was the solid evidence that something went into the motor oil, which I believed was gasoline, because the used oil had a gasoline smell. During this period, I only chose top tier gasoline brands and added regular #87 which was suggested by honda, therefore the quality of gasoline I added was no problem; I didn't see loss of engine coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid during this time.

While vehicle was in motion on an interstate highway while entering a tunnel with no cars immediately in front of it, the collision mitigation braking system(part of honda sensing suite of safety features) activated and significantly braked the car, nearly to a stop, with cars at highway speed behind me. There were pavement markings that appeared to be ground off as a result of recent construction that perhaps the car's sensing system mistook for an object that it thought it could hit, but there was nothing obstructing the car's path. No cars were in front of me. This is not the only time that this system has operated oddly, but it is the first time that it applied the brakes. It has mistook shadows and sun glare as being objects and warned me to brake (albeit momentarily) but the car did not automatically apply braking in those situations.

I'll have to turn the car off and then back on to be able to use the volume. Two different times my car wouldn't turn off while in park. I had to sit over 5 minutes in park before it would turn off with pushing the start button over and over. The radio goes staticky every time I use the defrost button. For the last 6 months my car now makes a beeping noise here and there that sounds like it's coming from the dash/radio. Doesn't matter if the car is in drive or park. Every time I brought my car into honda they couldn't fix anything since the codes didn't pull up when they plugged their computer into my car. I do have a video of the noises that my car was making (beeping). So yes I still have the same issues with my car and in 2 months I will have owned my car for 2 years.

The vehicle, after being driven the day prior without issues or any engine lights, will not start the next morning. The only engine light that is on is the electronic power steering light. When I try to start the car, the battery doesn't even click. I even jumped the battery to reinforce the idea that this is likely not related to the battery - still no clicking. After online research, I found that there was a recent recall on 2017 honda civics for the same issue - the eps system. Unfortunately, this recall is vin specific, and when I called honda to inquire about my vehicle, they told me that even though this sounds exactly like the other recalled honda civics, they were unable to do anything because my specific civic was not being recalled for this matter. For a car that is less than 2 years old, with no accidents, something as significant as an eps failure should be handled more seriously. This kind of failure, if occurring during operation of the vehicle, could result in major auto accidents.

I had my car towed to surprise honda (big mistake) and they saw that my harness (part number 53682-tsa-a01) was chewed by rodents which caused the problem. Honda says and knows this wiring is made from soy based material which attracts rodents. Honda even has a special spicy tape, which they charge for as well, that they can use to wrap the wiring to deter the rodents (which the service mgr said really doesn't work.) honda says it is not covered under their warranty. They replaced the wiring and it cost me 370. 00 dollars. The part itself was only 20. 00 dollars. It is 108 degrees outside the rodents are not going into my engine to keep warm!!

2017 honda civic ex hatchback. 22371 miles. Rt. Frt. Pass. Air bag will not deploy in event of accident due to " smart design ". Per honda dealer, seat sensor is not detecting weight threshold when anyone sits who are not heavy enough. My wife is 5' 4" & approx. 117 lbs. I am 5' 5" & approx. 115 lbs. Neither one of us can sit & turn off srs off warning. Also per dealer this is a safety design as if airbag deploys the force can injure or worse the person sitting there if not of correct weight. My wife will not be protected at any time she sits in front. Dealer advised that seat be moved far back as possible or have her sit in the back seat. Also, the seat side air bag and/or side curtain system should still provide some protection. Otherwise, no trouble code (s) are present & system operating normally & within design parameters. Not comfortable with my wife being unprotected in event of incident & she is not looking forward to being required to sit in the back seat.

Potential taketa recall. July 14, 2018. I had made a left hand turn into the parking lot of a local convenience store. Time was approximately 7 p. M. As I pulled into the parking spot, the drivers side front tire bumped the curb. The drivers side center airbag, located in the steering wheel did not deploy. It exploded! I thought someone had rammed into my car. When the airbag blew, it sounded like someone had fired a couple of 12 guage shotguns in the vehicle. Smoke was billowing out from the left and right sides of the steering wheel and column. It smelled like something electrical was on fire. The impact from the exploding airbag was not a pleasant experience to say the least. By the time I unbuckled my seat belt to exit the car, the smoke inside the vehicle was so thick I could not see out the windshield. My chest and hand are sore, but nothing appears to be broken. I left the vehicle where it was parked and have made arrangements to have it towed to the local dealershiop where I purchased the car, so that a complete evaluation can be done to determine the extent of damage to the vehicle that resulted from the exploding airbag. When I checked the vin on this website, it did not come up as being on the airbag recall. That needs to change asap. Thank goodness I was the only person in the vehicle. I shudder to think of what could have happened if there were passengers in the vehicle when that airbag blew!

Starting about 9 months ago I have had several occasions of electrical issues on my 2017 honda civic that is less than a year and a half old and only has 18k miles on it. It first started around the fall last year with my car repeatedly popping the trunk when I would not be near it and would come out to it in the parking lot at work and find my trunk wide open. Later on I found out the trunk popping open would force the car alarm to go off for several hours and occasionally would lead to a dead battery. When I took it in to have the issue investigated the technicians told me the couldn't diagnose the problem and that it shouldn't continue (it has continued and in fact is happening as I type this in my apartment). The next issue occurred about 2 months ago while I was driving down the interstate in the pouring rain and my windshield wipers stopped working completely. Upon having this problem inspected the technicians determined it was "faulty" windshield wiper motors and had both replaced. The latest issue that occurred was as I was driving to pensacola from washington and stopped off at a rest stop in the middle of nowhere oregon for some sleep. Upon waking up (3hrs after I shut the car off) I discovered my car was doing some glitchy thing with all the lights and dashboard where it was acting like I was turning it off and on. I had nothing turned on or plugged in when I went to sleep and when I woke up the car was completely dead and the electrical system had totally disabled the car.

I purchased this vehicle on 9/17/2017. Less than three weeks later, the left side of the seat back was deformed, causing back pain and discomfort. I took the vehicle to the dealer and they manipulated the cushions to get the seat back to a more comfortable shape, however it didn't look the same as when it was brand new. A couple of months after that the cushions became displaced again. There are two cushions forming the side bolster, and the side airbag is designed to deploy between the cushions. I have been unable to get the cushions back into place and don't live close to my dealership so it is inconvenient to take it back in. Now I have back pain in the area where the seat is deformed and pushing into my back. I am taking it to the dealer next week however I am afraid even if they replace the seat this problem will keep occurring. I haven't had the car long enough to be able to trade it in without taking a huge loss. I am also concerned with how the side airbag deployment could be effected.

After further investigation, the factory wheel bearing had no greese or lubercation inside of it causing it to wear down prematurely. I had to bring the vehicle in 3 times for honda to actually repair the problem. I was told multiple times it was 'road noise'. The wheel bearing would make a loud 'buffering' sound between 30-70mph. The noise would also get worse when going around corners.

I was driving on the freeway (going on the same lane & similar speed as any other car) and suddenly my back-right tire bursted. I pulled over to the shoulder, called triple a and found out that the entire rim of the rims was cracked and teared from the inside, but the tire itself remained intact and unpunctured. I took it to the honda dealership service center to get a replacement and diagnostic but the maintenance service claimed that it was due to an impact going over a possible pothole vs material defect of the wheel, thus voiding the warranty. Since its a new car, I believe it shouldn't be able to crack and be completely teared so easily due to a pothole (which is a very common thing to encounter). I feel at risk due to this incident because I'm uncertain of the durability of the rims model itself. Not only was I driving on the same lane as any other car, but cars that were in front of me & behind me drove by just fine. If it was solely a possible pothole mishap, then a new car like this should be able to handle such a minor impact from typical driving. Unfortunately, honda services said they couldn't really do anything about it and could only stand by the dealership's diagnostics. However, I don't think I'll feel safe with a claim like this unresolved. Especially when its a 2017 model car, my safety feels more at risk now because of what may happen to any of the other 3 wheels due to a common pothole incident to completely tear-apart the metallic rims from the inside what they concluded: "if it happens again, then report it again for this to be escalated". But to me, it makes no sense to wait for it to even happen again when its a dangerous risk to my life. I believe they should be more responsible to prevent it than to wait for it to happen again. Just because they replace one rim, doesn't mean it could prevent it if it is an overall defected model.

My honda civic 2017 car was in my driveway not moving when I turned the car on and all my warning lights came on and I had no power steering. I had my car towed to honda and they saw that my sub wiring harness was chewed which caused the problem. Honda says this wiring is made from soy based material which attracts rodents. They replaced the wiring and it cost me 268. 00 dollars. The part itself was only 28. 00 dollars. This then happened to me again exactly 2 weeks later with the same problem. I had to have the car towed again. This time I found out there is a fix for this. A spicy tape that honda makes that can be wrapped around the wiring to resist rodents I don't know how effective this is. They said they don't have the tape.. I am currently waiting to see what they are going to do since they know about this problem and my car is in the shop again going on the 2nd day. Ther is a class action suite that was filed for this very same reason. This dates all the way back to 2010 I was told.

This disables all audio, bluetooth, climate controls, back-up camera, & lanewatch. "check tuner" shows briefly often. Occurs even when driving. Dealer unable to duplicate, because of this honda refuses repair. Tpms alert displays frequently, after a tire even a wheel repair/replacement. Per dealer & honda tech all 4 should be matching set @ time of service, or dealer can attempt hard reset. Software update recently done for this. Told to bring back to dealer if/when tpms lights up again. Known poor android auto performance & apple carplay non-function, no repair at this time (software issues). "christmas tree" display - no abs, traction control, electric steering, airbag malfunction, etc etc. No long-term resolution, per dealer "software issues". Groaning noise when turning wheels left or right from stop, per dealer & honda tech "normal operation". Sunroof glass breakage is at owner expense, not a warranty coverage item. Engine shakes/shudders on start, again "normal operation" per dealer & honda tech. Poor horn performance, per dealer only a single low note horn installed. Not loud enough to be heard easily. Owner expense to upgrade to better (louder) unit. Electrical glitches still ongoing almost 2 years now, vehicle has 20,000 miles. This 10th gen civic not reliable & may prove a safety concern long-term. Am unable to afford replacing this vehicle at this time. Honda customer service has been largely indifferent towards these issues, citing "unable to duplicate" even "software issues".

It was "buffering / thinking" took it to and dealer couldn't find the cause but fixed with a hard reset and it started working again and checked for software updates and it was current. Third problem a 2 weeks later, started the car and got brake failure warning light and check engine light. Car wouldn't move parking brakes locked up. Tried to push the brake hold and parking brake to manually disengage but wouldn't. Had it towed to the honda dealership. They did a second hard reset.

The moonroof glass panel was intact and not damaged from the prior drive.

I purchased a 2017 honda civic 5/16. It needed a tire replacement 2 weeks later. A replacement tire was put on by a tire shop. They replaced a continental procontact with a continental contiprocontact of the same size. Since then the tpms error message has not been able to be reset. After 7 months I was finally told the "newly" designed 2017 tpms required all 4 tires to be of the exact tire model and tread wear for it to be reset. Meaning we have to replace all 4 tires now with only 12,000 on them. Or drive with a the tpms warning on until they need to be replaced. I have contacted honda and they told me it was not their issue, and I should have read the manual very closely to see one cannot just replace 1 tire....... The honda service shop didn't know about this new engineering requirement either as they haven't had to replace 2017 tires yet. I feel this is a unfair and unsafe issue. The original tire shop was contacted and told me they did not know about this "honda" issue when they replaced the tire 7 months ago. The tires "look" exactly the same. Driving with the car as it is now, with the tpms always on despite adequate tire pressure, doesn't seem to be a "safe" option either. If one of the other 3 tires has a failure, with the tpms already activated, how will we be warned..... Thank you for your attention to this problem.

My 2017 honda civic sunroof spontaneously shattered! The sky was mostly blue, the sun was shining, and the weather felt in the high 60s fahrenheit. I had departed my home in riverside, ca around 9am today (sunday, january 7th) and decided to open the sunroof due to the nice weather. I put the sunroof in the fully open position prior to entering the freeway. Note that the sunroof was fully intact and without damage at that time. Asi was driving east on the ca-91 freeway,I heard a loud pop and crackling noise ‪at about 9:20am‬. I also felt very small particles fall on myarms and faceafter the noise. Traffic was very light, so there were not any nearby vehicles at the time of the incident. Confused and cautious, I tried to close my sunroof. When the sunroof came out from the roof enclosure, I could see it was shattered and a large hole was in the middle of the glass. After exiting the freeway and stopping in a nearby parking lot I examined my car. I looked around and saw there was small pieces of broken glass on the passenger seat and near my gear selector, as well as a few slightly bigger pieces in the floor of my backseat of my car. I visited a near by honda dealer and they claimed it must have been hit by a rock or some other kind of debris. I find honda's explanation next to impossible because the sunroof was in the roof enclosure with only the front lip of the glass exposed, however, the middle of the sunroof is where the damage is centered, which was inside of the roof enclosure at the time of this event, and therefore seems highly unlikely road debris could hit the glass inside the enclosure. I have filed a claim with my insurance as well. I purchased my honda civic car brand new in december 2016, and it did not have any damage to the sunroof from the time of purchase to the time of this event.

I just bought this car "new" from coggin honda in jacksonville florida at 11003 atlantic boulevard on 10/17/17, it's production date in the drivers-side door jamb is 02/17, it was originally dealer prepped at the honda dealership on 2/21/17, the date code on all four tires are 50/16, indicating the 50th week of 2016, or manufactured between the dates of 12/11/16 - 12/17/16. Upon driving it home almost immediately after purchase, the (tpms) tire-pressure-monitoring-system light in the instrument cluster came on. Sixty miles later, after arriving in my town of residence, I took it into my local tire kingdom tire store to have the tire pressures checked, two tires indicated 21-pounds of air-pressure, the other two tires indicated 22-pounds of air-pressure. The manufacturer sticker in the drivers side door-jamb indicates the tires should be at 32-pounds of air-pressure. Afterwards, upon driving it at no-more than the national posted speed-limit of 70-mph, the tires have excessive road-noise, with a slight vibration. Meanwhile, I brought the car into the dealership to have the tpms recalibrated, so the tpms would go out. Upon close inspection of all four tires yesterday, they all have small bulges on each tire, and this caused me to check several online websites for further investigation of possible consumer complaints of these tires. They are continental pro-contact tx grand touring all-season, in 215/50-17 tire size. After checking numerous online websites and reading all-kinds of negative reviews for vibration, excessive road-noise, bubbles and cracking in the sidewalls, and reading they are filled with foam from the manufacturer to keep the road-noise down to a minimum, which apparently prevents the tires from being patched from the inside for punctures, and also coming apart from the sidewall after being remounted on a tire mounting machine, I am scared of them.

Honda civics from 2015 on appear to have a problem with the remote control, in particular the sensor for the trunk. The particular car in question is a 2017 honda civic. Extreme sensitivity results in the slightest pressure, without the owner being aware, activating the car trunk, and the trunk will open and remain open until the owner or someone closes it. A trunk that opens randomly and not by deliberate action is obviously a safety factor and needs to be addressed. Dealers, service people, and the auto maker itself have all denied that the problem exists and that if it does exist it cannot be addressed because it is the owner's action that causes this problem. There has not even been a suggestion or advice as to how to deal with an overly sensitive remote or a randomly opening trunk. A car remote control which will activate an action just by a mere accidental touch, is an inconvenience at best, and at worst, a problem that needs to be addressed and fixed. A car with an open trunk can lead to situations which can be potentially dangerous, and not acceptable in any way. I am hoping for some action on the part of the carmaker and the auto company, as I am at a loss as to what to do and have failed to receive any acceptable response from those whom I have contacted. Although one particular date has been provided below for this event happening, it has happened over 10 times since the purchase of this vehicle and can happen randomly at any time.

This is a 2017 honda civic hatchback. I cannot start the car suddenly. Battery is ok. Aaa removed the battery and reinstalled it, then the car can start. However, the honda dealer said with the battery removing, the error code was removed so cannot find the root cause. The dealer said most probably it was related with a software error.

Driver and passenger airbags both deployed in due to a very minor accident. The honda was just coming out of a stop so the speed couldn't have been more than 5-10 miles per hour. The front bumper shows no significant damage to warrant the deployment of the airbags. Neither one of the passengers was hurt except for minor burns on the hand of the driver due to the deployment of the airbag. It seems that the airbag were deployed needlessly.

I leased my honda civic from herb chambers honda of boston in nov. 2016. In march 2017 my check engine light came on. When I took my car to the dealership for servicing, they told me that rodents had chewed on the wires under my vehicle. After I did some research on my own, I found out that many other people were having this same issue and my car received damage to the wiring (under my car) due to the soybean coating that honda is using on the wire covers. I was told that this is not covered by the dealership or warranty. Remind you "this is a lease." my brand- new leased car was completed dead and wouldn't even turn on. I am lucky it didn't die on me while I was driving it. I have read online complaints that this has had to other people with this damage to their vehicles. I was quoted text="Who are we?

It was 3 feet from rolling into a highway that could have resulted in serious injury or death. Older cars you cannot remove the key.

I took my car in due to the recall letter I received at my residence addressed to me id# 14-034 stating cloud paint on roof and trunk and an extension was given. I remember it was a tuesday I took in because they specifically told me on the phone that is when pictures could be taken at the dealer and then sent in for approvals. I had some other things done on my car and there is record of it. However they said my vin number did not match the recall and took the paperwork that was addressed to me and said they would not take any photos of the car. At that time the clouding on my car was minimal however now a few year out it looks like acid spilled on my car. It's also interesting to see several other same model cars out on the road with the same issues. I did file a claim with the dealership then later told I would have to go through the dealer for any approvals since its way past the deadline. I did and was told I had to meet with a specfic person named casey and made another visit and was told they cannot do anything about it. So long story short been going back and forth and feel they are doing some shady business. So frustrated that I refused to buy my new car with honda and decided to buy a nissan rogue. I still own my civic but now I am deterred to ever buy another honda again. I feel I was taken advantage of when I went in during the time frame and I was there with my one year old daughter.

Drove another's another mile (approx) with no digital speed display at all- completely black instrument cluster (main display which normally shows digital miles per hour, temp gauge, etc) and turned on right hand signal to make right turn and about five seconds later right side camera turned on media display to right and eventually digital dashboard speedometer behind the steering wheel turned back on. Everything on the car is computer controlled. This is really dangerous. Not sure how f car has a bad cpu or ecu. Called dealership immediately as I has just driven away 15 minutes before and they didn't think it was a big deal. I am very concerned.

    I have had my civic since 4/2017. Since then I have had to replace the computer in the car two times, fix my AC and now a year and half after the 2nd time I “fixed” my car it’s happening again. I have taken it to Honda- the advisors have laughed at me when I have explained my concerns to the point that I ended up going to an auto shop to get another ooo ion on what is wrong with my car. I have less than 45k miles on this car.

    I have already replaced my battery. I have dealt with my alarm going off on it’s own at all times of day. Every error icon pops up on my dash.

    I have also had to have the radio replaced within a year of having the car. One time I took my car due to these issues and the advisor e there’s in to the system that my battery died when that’s not the case.

    I’m ready to proceed with legal action.

    Well we , that is my wife and I decided to try Honda instead of Toyota back in 2019 after the corolla I had since 2009 which was a great car ,stick shift , and 172000 miles until some lady who shouldn’t have been driving pulls across a turning lane and there goes my car.Thankfully I did have any injuries , I have our Father in heaven to thank for this
    However we decided to go with a 2017 Honda civic with 16999 miles and we were happy with the car .However shortly after I noticed a noise coming from the front end , so I didn’t do anything about it right then , however I decided to take it back to Honda and they advised me it was a the front two axles which would need to be replaced so with low miles the car already had a defect , they that is they honda dealership said they would have to order the parts and finally I took it in to have the problem fixed , only they replaced only one axel since they could do one at a time .Why didn’t they advise me of this? I should have left them car there and told the agent to have the second axel replaced , however I took the car and new with 50000 miles the same issue has come back again.To be honest I do not like dealing with the agents at the Honda dealership which is Rick case in davie.Always looking to make money of you even though you do not need the stuff they are telling u to get done .I have not been back since .Another issue was when I took it in for the free oil change and the agent advised me the battery was no good, another day and I would have to pay for a new one , when I only had the car one year and already the battery was fried .He tried to put it doen to the Florida heat, no way would they have not any money for a new battery .So my mechanic advised me the other day that the axel problem is a issue with these honda civics .So I am sure if I have a lemon , probably not , however I do believe that at almost 17000 miles the axels should not have to be replaced due to a defect , The battery sould of been a new one at least for 3 yrs warranty.

    Thank you for your time .

    It is a 2017 bought Nov 12 2020. On Feb. 27 these issues started. A few times it locked the brakes when started. First a 3000.00 sensor was diagnosed and replaced under Honda Canada. The same issue persisted within days. A 2000.00 sensor was diagnosed and replaced by Honda Canada. Within 3 days it happened again. Engine light came on several times within days showing all the same codes. They said it didn’t throw a hard code although the light had been on several times. The code reader indicates a different sensor but Honda Canada won’t pay for diagnoses until a hard code is thrown.

    2017 Civic has had the AC break for a second time and my car only has 31,000 miles. The first one was “fixed” under the warranty. This time they want to charge me $2100 to fix. This is ridiculous. They know they have AC issues. No way I should have to fix a compressor with such low miles.

    My 2017 Honda Touring wouldn’t turn on. Tgis issue has happened twice within the past couple months. Both times it happened in a parking lot and I had to ask the car driver parked next to me to jump start my car. I have taken it to the dealership but they have said that they couldn’t find any issues. I have owned Honda’s and Toyota’s for the past several years but I have never had this issue until now.

    My 2017 Honda civic touring started having a problem after 1 year. The The keyless Ignition system goes into accessory mode and drains the battery at night the alarm goes off for mo reason. After I shut off the car the
    car makes clicking noise with dash lights coming on and it stays on and drains the battery. I have to disconnect the battery at night. This has been an ongoing problem and a car thus new should not be having these issues. I’ve seen several post about from other people as well. This is a lemon and Honda needs to give me another car.

    My honda radio has not worked since the date of purchase. I have contacted the dealership since then but it has not been documented, it’s only been documented about two times. I finally brought it up to the service manager and he recognized it’s the Mitsubishi radio defect that also is found in 2016 Civics. He said honda has no solution for it yet and even though under warranty honda says to not replace the module because it is not a fix. Since then, I’m stuck paying for a car that has a radio that decides to work every now and then.

    I have a 2017 honda civic ex. The acceleration hesitation almost got me killed when i tried to quickly get out of the way of another car and hit the gas and the car hesitated for several seconds. Also, electronics have frequently failed, e.g. blue tooth disconnects, radio cuts off, walk away auto lock does not work and just rapidly beeps when i enter or exit the car. What’s up with Honda? Do not buy a honda civic ex cvt. And now I’m stuck with a lemon. THANKS Honda!
