My Wife Was Headed Home From Work (approximately 5 Pm) When She Had To Stop In Traffic On A Fairly Steep Hill, With An Outside Temperature At, Or Near, 100 Degrees. When She Attempted To Resume Forward She Pressed The Gas On Her 2008 honda civic Hybrid And The Car Started To Roll Backwards Into Another Car. The Transmission Was In Drive, She Switched To The Lowest Range, Still The Car Would Not Move Forward. As A Result, She Had To Wave Cars Behind Her Around While All She Could Do Was Hold The Brakes Until She Could Manage To Roll Backwards Down This Hill To Safety. She Then Changed Routes That Had Substantially More Congestion, But Smaller Hills. Hills Are A Way Of Life In The Atlanta Metro Area, So Are High Temperatures In July. She Has Mentioned That This Vehicle Has Terrible Acceleration On Some Lesser Hills In Hot Weather Over The Past 2 Years, But Never Experienced Anything As Dangerous As This Incident.this Malady Has Been Reported A Minimum Of 2-3 Times To The honda Dealership She Purchased It From, Heritage honda, Rome, Ga. I Wouldn’t Allow Her To Use It Until honda Sorted Out The Malfunction. Well, I Spent The Day There, They Did Computer Analysis, Technician Interfaced With honda Tech Line, Even Sent A “snapshot” Of The Vehicle’s Computer Data When It Actually Recreated The Same Condition For The Mechanic On A Steep Hill. None-the-less, I Left There Hopeful That honda Would Resolve Our Dilemma. After A Day And A Half Of Waiting For Some Feedback, I Was Finally Informed The Car Was Operating Properly. Apparently, The Hybrid Batteries Reached A High Temperature, Which For “safety Reasons” Disabled The Circuitry That “assists” The Car Via The “hybrid Electric Motor” Which In Turn Leaves The Car Completely Dependent On The Undersized Gasoline Engine. In This Case, Not Near Enough Power To Move Her Car. honda Says It’s Ok To Drive! We Need Help, Please Help Us! *tr

Car Started At Usual Time Around 8 Am And Started Vibrating. A Very Loud Exhaust Noise Started To Begin And The Car Began Shaking. The Vibrating Noise Was So Loud And Everyone In The Car Could Feel The Vibration. The Front Steering Wheel As Well As The Seats Were Also Shaking. Vibrating Continued Throughout The Day And Was Gone At Times When This First Began But As Days Went By It Became Louder And More Obvious By Others Outside Of The Car. The Car Now Continues To Vibrate Not Only In The Morning But At All Times Of The Day. It Shakes At Park, Drive, And Reverse. Car Is Very Uncomfortable To Drive And The Noise Can Become Very Distracting. The Car Also Vibrates So Much During These Times That I Am Afraid That Something Will Happen On The Highway And Am Worried About This. honda Dealer Will Not Cover This Under Power Train Warranty Because The Car Is Now Passed The Warranty For Power Train Which Is 5 Year/60,000 Miles.

In November 2013 My 2008 honda civic Experienced A Motor Mount Failure. The Vehicle Has Been Well Maintained, Driven Easy And Only Has 57,000 Miles On It. Investigation On The Internet Shows This To Be A Very Common Problem. honda Refuses To Do Anything About The Issue, Other Than Charging Their Customers A Hefty Fee For The Repairs. This Has Become A Well Documented Manufacturing/design Defect For This Generation Of civics. The Fact honda Refuses To Accept Responsibility And Places The Repair Burden On Their Customers Is Very Troubling. I Would Hope Either The Government Steps In Or A Class Action Lawsuit Is Filed To Make honda?s Customers Whole. *tr

Noticed Car Was Running Loud When Started And Louder When Putting In Reverse. Brought Car In For 55,000 Mile Service And Also Asked Them To Check Out The Motor Mounts, Since I Had Check On Google To See If There Were Any Issues With 2008 civics. Yes Cracked Motor Mounts Is An Issue With 2007 And 2008 civics. Service Department Confirmed That There Was A Cracked Motor Mount In The Back Of The Engine That Needs To Be Replaced. I Have Taken Very Good Care Of This Car And Also Bring It In For Service On Time. Very Upset That This Car Only Has 54,702 Miles And It Has A Cracked Motor Mount. This Car Has Been In A Garage From Day One And I Only Drive It To And From Work Since I Purchased This Car New. I Feel That This Is A Defect In The Design And Should Be Looked At For A Possible Recall. This Car Is Housed In Florida And Does Not Have The Winter Elements Of The North. Since The Car Has A Total Of Four Motor Mounts Wondering If They Will All Start To Fail. Service Department Told Me It Would Cost Over $500 + Dollars To Repair One. So If The Other Three Fail We Are Talking Over $2,000 + In Repair Costs. This Is Ridiculous For Such A Low Mileage Vehicle. *tr

I Was Parking In A High School Parking Lot. I “rolled” Into The Space And When I Applied The Brakes The Engine “accelerated”. I Went Over The Cement Block At The Front Of The Space And Through A Chainlink Fence And Onto The Sidewalk. Usually, That Walkway Is Filled With Children. I Initially Thought The Floormat Got Caught Up Under The Gas Pedal. I Took Pictures Immediately And It Did Appear That Exacerbated The Problem. Bell honda In Phoenix Said “they Could Not Repeat The Problem” And Dismissed Me. It Has Since Happened To My Daughter And Husband. Fortunately They Both Applied The Emergency Brake. After The Last Time, We Took The Car To Superstition Springs honda. They Said “they Could Not Repeat The Problem And Nothing Has Come From honda.” I Have Read Where Others Have Had This Problem. I Just Thank God That So Far No One Has Been Killed Or That The Car Didn’t Surge Over A Cliff On Our Trip To Yellowstone. *tr

At Less Than 55,000 Miles, I Noticed My 2008 honda civic Coupe Would Vibrate Excessively While In Reverse, Especially During Start Up. Checked On The Internet And Found Many Other People With The Same Problem. Went To A Mechanic To Take A Look, And They Found 3 Motor Mounts Cracked. After Replacing The Mounts (not Cheap), My civic No Longer Vibrates On Reverse. It Was Definitely Cracked Mounts That Caused This Issue. I Bought This Car Brand New In 2008 At The honda Dealership, And Always Take Great Care Of My Car And Make Sure All Service Is Done On Time. It’s Unfortunate That The Mounts Were Made So Cheap For Such A ‘reliable’ Company… Now The Burden Is On The Consumer To Spend Hundreds To Fix This Issue. *tr
