2022 Honda Civic Problems and Top Complaints – Is Your Car A Lemon?

Electrical system & structural issues are among the top complaints received by the NHTSA from vehicle owners

The 2022 Honda Civic provides the traditional style and memorable name that the average car buyer is looking for. The automaker tries to step it up a notch by claiming it will provide “nonstop fun.” However, customers aren’t having any fun at all, especially because they are spending a majority of time dealing with electrical system and structural-related issues.

Problems with the Electrical System

With a trusted name like Honda, it’s easy for customers to fall into a trap, blindly believing that this Civic is going to be in good working order. Yet, electrical system glitches seem to plague the car.

Here’s one example from an Edmunds review. “Within 10-hours after purchase, the defroster stopped working followed by the air-conditioning immediately afterwards. Took it back to the dealer and it’s been with them for over a week. I may not get my car back for several weeks as it’s difficult to get the electrical replacement parts probably due to chip component shortage. Not very happy with this purchase.”

The electrical issues range from small to large. On the minor side, Service Bulletin #AATS210301 talks about the wireless charger not working with iPhone 12 models. Honda’s solution to this is to “use a USB charging cord” instead. However, even larger are the previous issues that Honda has faced. In the past, the automaker has been found possibly liable for failing to disclose issues with the seatbelts and air bags because of an electrical defect. How many more will there be before loyal customers jump ship?

Problems with the Structure

It turns out that Honda didn’t spend a lot of time looking at the structural design and integrity either. Several customers are running to the Internet to discuss how poorly built the new Civic is.

Here’s one example from Edmunds. “Three weeks into owning this brand new car and the inside rear view mirror fell off (needs a new windshield), the carpet is disintegrating (leaving bald spots), it leaks coolant and has a bad spot in the paint.”

Every design made to make the Civic special has turned into a nuisance when viewed by the owner. Even the headlights are causing trouble. Service Bulletin #ATI&10052021902 discusses how an excessive amount of condensation and moisture is building up in the taillights. However, Honda doesn’t have a fix for this but would rather “inspect the vehicle” to see what customers are talking about. At some point, the automaker needs to stop evaluating things and start producing some fixes. Better yet, maybe Honda should go back to Car Building 101 and learn the basics over again.
