There Has Been No Wreck Or Fire—this Is A Complaint For Your Tsb Compilations….we Have An 08 civic Lx: The Transmission Shifts Roughly, And With Delays. Slowing Down And Then Re Accelerating Lightly Causes A Delay—-as If The Transmission/control Module Can’t Figure Out Which Gear To Get Into— And Then A Rough Engagement. From D To Reverse, There Is A Harder Engagement Than Should Be. It’s As If There Is A Problem With The Control Module Or The Torque Converter. My Dealer Says All These Things Are Normal In A civic Auto Transmission. We Have An 07 Accord Exl And It Has None Of These Problems, Nor Did Any Other Vehicles I’ve Had In The Past With A.t. It Seems There Should Be Some Control Module Reprogramming Or Software Patch For This Transmission. Also, As A Safety Problem, It Is Harder To See Out Of This Windshield During Rain, Esp. At Night, Than Any Car I’ve Driven. Possibly The Extreme Slant Of The Glass? As A Safety Problem, As Well, The Brakes Have A Soft Pedal, As Well, And Require More Force Than Our Accord(much Much More)or Than Any Car I Am Used To, Except One With Air In The Lines….dealer Says This Soft Pedal Is Normal, As Well. *tr

08 honda civic Hybrid – When The Batteries Are Fully Charged, The Generator Is Not Used For Braking. When The Batteries Are Not Charged, The Generator Is Used For Braking. During The Transition, I Have Been Surprised Many Times By The Lack Of Brakes. When The Batteries Are Not Charging You Have To Really Press Hard On The Brakes To Even Slow Down. Then, If You Are Expecting To Press Hard And The Generator Has Kicked Back In, You Are Thrown Forward As The Brakes Work Fine. I Thought This And The Occasional Herky-jerkiness That Goes Along With It Is Normal. But, After Reading About The Toyota Prius Brake Issue, The honda Is Just As Bad, If Not Worse. This Has Been Going On Since Day One Of Ownership. *tr

Currently I Have 32,277 Miles And Don’t Drive It, It’s Not Safe To Drive. I Take A Bus :) 1# Trans Locked At 60mph On Hwy And Caused Almost A Fatal Crash! At 23,000 Miles. Car Was Able To Drive Up To 15mpg Having Appx. 6000rpms. Car Left At Dealership And Only Pcm Software Was Upd. No Lockups Are Occurring, But Trans Is Weaving, Harsh Start/stop Often!/unexpected Shutdown. Dealership Found service Bulletin #08-014 (harsh Engagement), Upd. The On Board Computer And Symptoms Are Much Worse Than Previously. Lower Mpg ( 25-28 ), Much Worse Performance, Unexpected Battery Discharge, Weaving, Low Accel. Dealer Duplicated Problems, But Said “it’s Ok” And Problems Is Untouched. Since They Updated The System, The Hybrid Option Is Not Kicking In As Before. Prev. I Was Able To Drive Slowly Only On Hybrid, Now I Can’t. No Actions Are Taken To Resolve The Issue. Once They Changed The Ima Batt Pack, But This Did Not Help And I See Not A Difference. Complained Again, And Absolutely No Response. Brakes Are Malfunctioning. Brake Fluid Is Missing, Dealer Said “[xxx], It’s A Mystery”. Depending On Outside Temp, Battery Charge Level And Car Temp Breaks Work Diff! Occasionally While Slowing Down, The Battery Level Reaches Full And You Must Press The Pedal As Hard As You Can To Stop. This Has Caused Small Crashes And Once Brakes Did Not Work, Or I Pressed Too Lightly ( Cold Outside With Full Battery ) And Unfortunately I Couldn’t Stop On Time And Ran Over A Pedestrian. She Is Badly Injured And Suing My Insurance Company! Dealer Rec. To “change Car, Better To Buy Not A honda And Don’t Bother Them If Nothing Is Broken.” Police Report Ready To Present. These Are Only The Major Issues I’m Having. I Would Need Much More Space To Write 20 Pgs Essay. Minor Issues: – Super Fast Tire Wear ( After 20,000 ) And Now Again At 32,000 – Not Working Climate Ctrl System – Check Engine, Ima Light, Brake System And Airbag Lights On.
