Subject:regenerative Braking Possible Problem Comments: I Am A 2008 honda civic Hybrid Owner That Is Having Similar Problems As Stated In The Following Article. Problem With Surging Of The Car While Braking Or A Slight Reduction In Stopping Power. Http://www.leftlanenews.com/nhtsa-reviewing-third-generation-toyota-prius-braking.html What Is Different Is That It Is Limited To The First Few Minutes When Driving, After Such Time It Disappears. Also, It Does Not Only Happen After Hitting Bumps In The Road, It Is On A Smooth Road. This Is Not An Acceleration Issue, As The Tach Does Not Surge Or The Car Does Not Jump Forward, Just The Loss Of Stopping Power. The Abs System Does Not Activate As I Don’t Hear The Noise Common To When Activation Of The Abs Occurs. And It Will Happen Regards Of How Hard The Brakes Are Pressed To Stop The Vehicle. The Problem Does Go Away After A Few Minutes And A Few Stop Signs. *tr

I Own A 2008 honda civic (purchased New) With Under 25, 000 Miles. I Immediately Had To Have To Rotors Resurfaced When I Took Delivery Of The Vehicle…as I Was Driving Home, I Could Feel The Brakes Pulsating When I Applied The Brakes. I Returned To The Dealer And They Had To Resurface The Rotors Then. After That, The First Problem I Had Was With The Rear Wheel Bearings And The Left Rear Brakes (pads, Caliper, Rotor). At Approximately 18k Both Rear Wheel Bearings Needed To Be Replaced, The Left Rear Caliper Was Frozen, The Pads Were Worn Due To That And The Rotor Needed To Be Resurfaced. The Repairs Were Covered Under Warranty And No Explanation Could Be Given As To A Reason For The Premature Wear. At Approximately 20k, I Had To Have The Front Rotors Resurfaced (both Right And Left) Due To Premature/uneven Wear). Unfortunately, This Was Done By My Own Mechanic During Routine Maintenance And Is Not Documented By honda (i Spoke To honda And Was Told It Was Most Likely Due To “driver/road Conditions And There Was No Way To Tell Since It Was Not Repaired By A Dealer). Recently, I Noticed The Parking Brake Sticking/freezing And Brought The Car In For service. The Brake Pads On The Right Rear, Were Unevenly/prematurely Worn And The Caliper Was Frozen. Both Rear Rotors Had To Be Resurfaced Again! These Repairs Were Also Covered Under Warranty, But Again, No Explanation Could Be Given As To What Keeps Causing This Premature Wear Of The Brakes. Also, This Morning, The “side Air Bag Off” Indicator Light Came On And Now Needs To Go Back For service Again (2nd Time In A Week). *tr

At 10,000 Miles My 2008 honda civic Developed Loud Squealing In The Front Brakes. They Would Make This Noise At Any Speed. After Much Back And Forth With Nearest Dealership They Finally Replaced Them For Free. They Claimed There Was Dirt In Them, Or, Alternatively, I Rode The Brakes Too Hard. Neither Was The Case. About 6 Weeks Later The Brakes Squealed So Loud People Blocks Away Stopped To Look For Hundreds Of Miles On A Trip Home After A Holiday Visit. That Stopped After The Car Garaged Overnight. Called honda Corporate To Report Problem, Was Treated Badly, All My Fault, What Could They Do? They Actually Asked Me What I Wanted Them To Do Like They Couldn’t See That Maybe They Should Investigate It As A Problem! Now I See Online That 2008 honda Accords Had This Same Problem. Feel That Anything That Causes Brakes To Wear Out Prematurely Is A Safety Issue That Should Be Addressed. So Far The Replacement Pads Have Held Up. We Had Our Local Mechanic Check Them Out After That Screeching Long Trip And He Found Nothing Wrong, No Wear, Calipers Not Stuck, Etc. *tr
