Small Pebble Hit Condenser On My 2008 honda civic While Driving Unbeknownst To Me. The Dealer Says It Has Caused A Small Hole In Condenser And Has To Be Replaced. On Examination Damage Is Not Readily Noticeable. The Car Is Only 3 Mos. Old. I Feel This Is A Design Flaw, And Have Noted That Many Others Have Complained About The Same Problem, So It Quite Common. I Think honda Should Address The Problem And Fix It, And Have It Covered By Warranty. *tr

I Just Purchased Fully A 2008 honda civic From honda Of Bowie In Bowie Maryland On Aug 22, 2008. I Went To Charlotte, Nc For The Holidays. After Parking The Car I Had To Move It 5 Feet. I Did Not Drive The Car For 3 Days Thereafter. I Proceeded To Start The Car On The 3rd Day And It Would Not Start. I Let The Car Sit And Then Tried To Start It Again. The Lights Started To Dim And It Would Not Start. I Called Bowie And Talked To Bill. He Instructed Me To Called honda In Charlotte And Have It Towed And honda Would “eat The Cost”. I Did As Instructed. I Towed It And The Service Rep Tried To Start It And Said This May Be Serious. The Mechanic Put The Pedal To The Floor, A Cloud Of Black Foul-smelling Odor Came Out And The Car Started Up. I Called Bowie On January 2, 2009, No One Was Available, They Say, To Speak With Me, And Mr. Williamson Would Not Call Me Back. I Was Told That This Incident Was Not Covered Under The Warranty. This Was Purchased As A Brand New Car. I Do Not Fill Safe In This Car!!! I Am In The Process Of Trying To Obtain My Money Back From This Dealer. I Am A Young Woman That Travels Alot And Because I, As A Young Woman On The Road, Was Not Able To Diagnosis My Car With Dimming Lights And Not Starting Up, I Had To Pay The Towing Which Was Suppose To Be Under The Warranty. There Needs To Be An Investigation To See Whether Any Other “08 civic From honda Of Bowie Has Had This Problem. If Not, I Am Reporting The First. *tr

My 2008 civic Ex-l Ac Condenser Was Damaged By A Road Debrispebble. The Dealer Tells Me That It’s Not Covered Under Warranty, Cost $750.00. honda Tells Me To Report It To My Insurance. Why Should I, After Deductible, I’ll Only Save $250.00 Which I’ll Lose When My Premium Goes Up.this Is Not Right! hondadealer Should Inform This Flaw To The Customer And Provide Suggestion On How To Help Prevent This Such As A Deflector. One Like A Windshield Deflector Or Something. If This Component Has To Be In The Front Of The Car By Design, Why Wouldn’t They Design It To Be More Durable? I’m So Upset At honda. After Repair I’ll Be Driving While Worrying About Small Objects On The Road Which I Shouldn’t Have To. And The Sad Part Is That According To What I Read On Forums, So Many Other honda Owners People Have Experienced This. *tr

On January 23, 2010, I Was Involved In A Single Automobile Accident, On Highway 111, In Indian Wells, Ca. Roads Were Wet That Day. I Recall My Vehicle Hydro-planing And Spinning Out Of Control. That Is The Last I Recall, As I Believe I Was Knocked Unconscious, I Awoke Minutes Later To Find Myself Still In The Drivers Seat, To Find My Back Seat Engulfed In Flames. I Managed To Free Myself From My Seat Belt And Get Out Through The Drivers Side Window. As Managed To Get On My Feet I Walked Away From The Vehicle Just In Time For It To Explode.. O My Next Concern Is As Doing Some Research After The Accident, I Came Across Some Interesting Information Regarding A Recall On That Type Of Vehicle. I Purchased My Vehicle In June 2008, And Recall Letters Were Sent Out On October 2008. I Never Received Such A Letter. I Am Concerned To What Caused My Vehicle To Catch Fire And Explode. I Contacted A honda Mtg. Company, And Spoke To A Case Manager And Opened A Claim. On March 31, 2010, I Received A Phone Call From Him, And He Said That There Was No Recall On Such Vehicle. My Personal Opinion, He Came To That Conclusion Based On A List Of Vin Numbers., No Investigation Was Done As Far As Checking The Vehicle Or Taking The Time To Find Out If My Vehicle Was Just One That Was Bypassed And Not Put On The Vin List. I Personally Do Not Feel That They Put Much Effort In Finding Out Why My Vehicle Exploded. I Am Now Stuck With A Balance, Medical Bills, And No Vehicle. Please Help Me In This Matter, For I Feel This Matter Was Not Taken Seriously. *tr

The engine Was Replaced But They Know They Have A Defective engine Block In The honda civic 2008, 2007, And 2006 So How Do We Know If We Did Or Did Not Receive Another Block With The Same Problem.

In August 2010 I Took My 2008 honda civic Hybrid To The Dealer For Routine Maintenance. The Dealer Performed A Purported Software Update On The Battery System Without Notifying Me Until Afterwards. Immediately Upon Leaving The Dealer, I Noticed A Profound Reduction In Power And Acceleration. On The Freeway Portion Of The Drive Home, I Was Almost Rear-ended Twice As I Drove In The Slow Lane Up A Minor Grade Where The Vehicle Could Not Accelerate Over 40 Miles Per Hour (with The Pedal Fully Depressed In The Passing Gear)– Prior To This Date I Had Driven My Vehicle For Its Prior 20 Months Of Ownership Up That Same Grade At 70mph. Additionally, Prior To This Date I Had Never Even Utilized The “s” Gear On My Transmission. Ever Since honda‘s Software Update My Car Has Become A Severely Underpowered Accident Waiting To Happen. I Am Reduced To Driving In The Slow Lane On The Freeway With Vehicles Flashing Me As They Approach A 40-45 Mph Vehicle At 60-70 Mph From Behind. I Have Called The honda Service Departments At Several Local Dealers Regarding This Problem, And Get A Universal Response- “wait For Your System To Adjust To The Software Update” Or “you Need To Adjust Your Driving”. What The Heck Does This Mean? I Drove The Vehicle Fine For 20 Months Prior To The Software Update And Now It Drives Like A 20 Year Old 4 Cylinder engine With 2 Bad Pistons. The Decreased Power And Acceleration Are A Dangerous Accident In The Making. I Am Fearful Of Being Rear Ended. This Is An Every Day Problem That Was Caused By This “software Update” And I Suspect That It Is Happening To Every 2006-2008 honda civic Hybrid That Goes To The Dealer For This Software Update. An Additional Consequence Of This Alleged “software Update” Is A Profound Drop In Gas Mileage From Approximately 37 Combined Mpg Prior To “update” To 29-30 Post “update”. I Have Never Lodged A Complaint With Any Organization Before, But Like I’ve Previously Stated, This “update” Is A Danger To The Public. *tr

2008 honda civic Hybrid Ima Dash Light And engine Light Come On At Approximately 31,000 Miles. I Was Driving And All Of The Sudden The Integrated Motor Assist Light On The Dash And The engine Light Came On. I Stopped And Read That This Indicated A Problem With The Integrated Motor Assist And That Performance Would Be Affected Which It Was. Acceleration Was Sluggish And Slow From A Stand Still. I Took It To The Dealership Immediately And Was Asked If I Had Received A Recall Notice Which I Said I Had Not. They Said They Were Aware Of The Problem And That It Required A Software Upgrade. I Left The Car For About 30 Minutes And When I Returned They Said That They Flashed The Computer And Did An Upgrade. After This There Were No More Problems. I Have Looked At Nhtsa And honda Site And There Is No Mention Of This Problem Or A Recall Listed On Any Site. I Just Wanted To Let You Know That This May Be A Problem. Thank You. *tr

honda Gave Us A Warning That Our civic Could Lose It’s Coolant And Break Down. They Refuse To Do A Recall. We Complained To The State Of Oregon And They Agreed With Us But Could Not Get honda To Recall Our Car Just Extend The Warranty. We Are Retired And Purchased The Car To Drive To La To Visit Our Grandchildren And Are Now Afraid To Do So As We Can’t Look Forward To A Breakdown On The Highway. It Also Creates A Diminished Value For Resale For Which The State Consumer Complaint Bureau Agreed But Was Unable To Get An Agreement From honda On. I Have All Of The Documents From honda And The State Of Oregon And Could Forward To You If You Have The Same Views That We Have. We Have Only 4500 Miles On Our civic And Have Asked Them For An Ability To Trade It In On Another Car For Near What We Paid For It For Peace Of Mind In Our Travels Or Repair The Vehicle. They Said That If The Problem Has Not Yet Occurred They Won’t Address It Yet They Know That It May Occur. At Our Age And Hoping To Keep The Car For A Long Time The Extended Warranty Doesn’t Work For Us And It Is Just A Way For honda To Avoid A Recall And Keep Their Problem Out Of The Medial While Pushing The Outcome On Us With No Recourse Except To Wait For The Problem To Manifest Itself At Our Inconvenience. They Say That The engine Would Stall So That Would Lose Our Power Brakes And Steering Which Scares Us On Top Of The Inconvenience Of An Interstate Breakdown While Both My Wife And I Have Medical Issues That Cause Us Concerns In That Potential. I Can Email You The Letter Of Potential engine Breakdown Potential And The Letter From The State Of Oregon If You Are Willing To Help In This Matter. *tr

The engine On My honda Overheated And Got So Hot It Actually Melted Some Of The Components. Faced With A $4000 Repair Bill, I Did Some Internet Research And Found That honda Had Been Aware Of engine Problems With 2006 Through 2008 civics. honda Had Issued A Bulletin To Letting Mechanics Know There Was A Problem With Leaking Coolant. My Husband Was Exiting A Freeway When The Car Just Shut Down And Started Smoking. Had It Happened Sooner, There Could Have Been An Accident. I Think honda Should Have Recalled These Cars Rather Than Wait Until A Breakdown Happens And Then Do Repairs. Even The Service Manager At honda Told Us They Had Been Doing Of Lot Of These Repairs Lately. The Potential For A Breakdown In An Unsafe Area And Cause An Accident Is Great. Or At Least Make Sure They Get The Information To Their Customers. They Know Where To Find Me To Send My Monthly Bill, Why Not The Warranty?

Took Car In For Oil Change 4/30/2011 At honda Dealer. Service Department Performed Reflash Campaign 10-034 Without Asking. Previously Had Declined This Service And Is Noted In Service Records Not To Perform This Service Ever. Car Performance Has Been Significantly Diminished Since This Service Has Been Performed. Car Will Not Reliably Accelerate Smoothly From Standstill (red Light) Or When Merging Into Highway Traffic At 40-50 Mph. When Accelerating From A Stop, Vehicle May Or May Not Move At Acceptable Speed Causing The Potential To Enter Traffic With Inadequate Power To Get Up To Speed Of Oncoming Traffic Creating A Hazardous Situation. This Is An Accident Waiting To Happen, Especially Since The Performance Is Now Inconsistent And You Do Not Know When It May Not Accelerate As Needed. The engine Will Rev Very High But The Car Will Only Go 5-10 Mph With Pedal All The Way To The Floor. honda Dealer Has Been Unresponsive. I Am Limiting Driving This Car As Much As Possible As This Car Is Unsafe In Traffic Situations. Also, The Auto-stop Feature Does Not Work As Prior To The Reflash, engine Idles Much Higher At Stops And Does Not Cut Off. This Has Decreased Gas Mileage Significantly.

First Thing This Morning I Tried To Set My Cruise Control At 65 Mph, But It Didn’t Work. The Speed Of The Car Kept Decreasing, Despite Several Attempts To Set The Cruise. I Turned Off The Cruise And Tried To Press The Gas Pedal To Drive, And The Same Problem Occurred. In Addition, As I Tried To Increase My Speed, The Car Made A Loud Humming Sound And The Rpms On The Dash Began To Increase. Then An Indicator Light Turned On; After Driving For A Few Minutes, More Indicator Lights Came On, My Brake Stopped Working Completely, And My Steering Wheel Locked. My Gas Pedal Also Stopped Working Completely. At This Point, As I Was Going Uphill I Lost Complete Control Of The Car And Put The Car In Park Because That Was The Only Way I Could Stop The Car. Smoke Began Coming From The Hood. I Had The Car Towed To The Midas In Salt Lake City At 875 East 2100 South. The Service People Told Me The Cars engine Had Heated So That It Melted The Equipment Under The Hood. Later, After A Discussion With The honda Corporate Office, I Found Out A Recall Had Been Issued In August 2010 For A Problem With The engine Blocks Of 2006, 2008, And Some 2009 civics. The honda Representative Said A Letter Had Been Sent To civic Owners. However, My Experience Today Showed Me The Seriousness Of This Problem. I Could Have A Life-threatening Accident Today, And When The Issue Is So Grave honda Should Call Car Owners To Alert Them To The Recall. A Letter Sent Out One Time Is Not Enough. The Midas Service Representatives Told Me They Had Absolutely No Information About This Recall In Their Database, Which Proves How Poorly This Entire Matter Has Been Handled. There Are Many Families Out There Driving These civics. Get Your Cars Checked Out, And Let honda Know That They Must Take Better Care And Full Responsibility For Their Customers! *tr

I Have A 2008 honda civic, The A/c Works Intermittently, Sometimes It Cools Sometimes It Does Not. I Have It Checked By A Dealership And A Firestone Shop, They Said The ‘freon’ Level And Pressure Is Ok And Both Recommended Replacing The Compressor, Etc. If The Compressor Is Broken Then Why Does It Still Work (on And Off)? I’ve Read In Some Of The Forums That There Are A Lot Of honda civic 2008 Owners Had The Same Problem.

This Summer, From The Month Of May Onwards, I Felt Difficult In Breathing, Blurred Vision And Sometimes A Sudden Chest Pain While Driving My civic With Ac Running, It Blew Cool But Not Cold Air, And There Were Many Instances That I Almost Fell Off And My Body Became Off Balance While Walking Around After Driving The civic. At First, I Thought It Might Be I Am Getting Old, 46yrs. But. Later , I Found Out That There Is A Freon Leak Within The Car When Ac Is Engaged . A Tif 5000 Detector Was Used To Check And Confirm The Present Of R134a In The Cool Air Inside The civic. The Check Was Carried Out Under Condition That Ac System Is Blowing Closed Circulatiuon Air Within The Car. I Felt That This Type Of Incident Might Post A Greater Risk Of Automobile Accidents For Elderly Drivers As The R134a, Freon, Is Poisonous And Once The Drivers Unaware Of Its Present And Inhale It And Physically Lose Control Of Their Vehicles. Especially Elderly Ones Are More Vulnerable And Accidents Happen. There Are Many Accidents Might Be Due To This Type Of Ac Defect. The Public Or The Investigators May Have Not Realized This Is One Of The Possible Causes Of Accidents, As The Crashes May Have Physically Destroy All The Evidences Of Defective Ac System. I Hope You Will Look Into This Problem. Not Only honda Automobiles But All Cars In The Usa. *tr

After 51,000+ Miles, The Right engine Motor Mount On My 2008 honda civic 2-door Coupe Failed. The engine Vibrated When The engine Was Cold Or When I First Started It In The Morning. There Were Minimal Problems After The engine Warmed Up. Two Repair Shops Said The Motor Mount Needed To Be Replaced. The Repair Shop Replaced The Mount With A New One From The honda Dealership In The Area. He Said The Dealership Had Some In Stock, Which He Said Was Highly Unusual Because These Mounts Are Very Expensive. The Parts Person At The Dealership Did Not Even Have To Look Up The Part Number, He Knew Exactly What Was Needed. Both Of These Suggest That This Is Not An Uncommon Problem, And The honda Replacement Part Has Been Redesigned. I Have Never Had To Replace A Motor Mount On Any Of The Cars I Have Owned In The Last 45+ Years. All Of The Above Information I Have Provided Indicates To Me That The Mount Is Defective And Should Be Recalled By honda. *tr
