I Reported To honda Of America That The Clear Coat Paint On My Vehicle Had Begun Splitting Throughout The Hood And Fenders. honda Of America Recommended That I Take It In To Be Evaluated By The Service Team And Service Manager At My Local Dealership. I Took My Vehicle In To Earnhardt honda In Avondale, Arizona, The End Of December 2011. I Belong To A honda civic Enthusiast Forum Called 8thcivic.com. Hundreds Of Members There With civics In The Color Of Nighthawk Black Pearl And Fiji Blue Pearl Have Noticed This Phenomena And Have Posted Pictures Of There Vehicle. This Has Sparked Some Debate Over Why honda Has Not Admitted To And Taken Responsibility For Issues Regarding Paint On The 06-11 Models. I’ve Heard Paint Experts On The Message Board State That The Clear Coat Is Cracking, Called “crows Feet” Due To A Defective Clear Coat That Was Applied During Manufacturing. This Mixed With The Heat Of The Engine Bay Caused The Clear Coat To Separate And Crack. The Long Term Effects Of This Will Basically Be The Paint Bubbling And Wearing Away. I’ve Hard My Car For Only 2 Years, And It Had 38k Miles On It When I Brought It To The Dealership. Since That Time The Dealership Has Been Ignoring My Calls And honda Of America Has Been Running Me Around In Circles To No Avail. *tr

My 2008 honda civic Has A Notorious Problem: Defective Sun Visors That Drop Down, Covering More Than Half The Vertical Space Of The Windshield In Front Of The Driver. The Problem, Which Involves A Metal Bar That Expands In Hot Weather And Forces Apart The Two Sides Of The Plastic Visor, Is Prone To Happen In Hot Weather. This Is The Fourth Time It Has Happened To Me. A California Superior Court Ruling Requires honda To Replace These As Needed Up To 100,000 Miles. However, The Safety Issue Remains Unaddressed. The Replacement Is The Same As The Failed Visor, And It Too Will Fail In About 10,000 Miles (or Less, In Severe Climates). Two Screws Hold The Visor To The Roof Of The Car. Can’t honda Be Require To Design A New Visor Without This Defect (requires Only Making The Channel For The Metal Bar Wider) And Replace The Visors With An Improved Version On All Affected honda civics (2006-2009)? It Is Not Fun Viewing The Road Ahead By Peeking Around And Under The Dropped Visor. honda civics Have A Severely Slanted Windshield, And The Vertical Viewing Space Is Limited Without A Failed Visor. *tr
