At 78,000 Miles I Began To Notice Unusual Road Noise. ( Humming) Less Than A Year Later I’m Experiencing Horrific Road Noise (peaks Near 55 Mph) And Now Unusual Tire Wear. Tires Are Rotated, Balanced And Front End Aligned Regularly. I Thought Maybe Bearing Problems. Local Mechanic Checked And Said No. Tire Dealership Thought The Same, Checked And Said No. honda Dealership Said Tires Needed Rotation To Eliminate The Problem. (did Not Help) Back To Tire Dealership, They Believe I Need A Kit For Rear Cam Arms. Noise So Loud I Sometimes Use Ear Plugs To Drown Out Sound/not Safe. *tr

At About 15,000 Miles, We Had To Replace The Original 2 Rear Tires Due To Uneven Wear. We Replaced The Tires And Had To Replace Them Again At 40,000. Now, At 60,000, The Rear Tires Are Unevenly Wearing Again So Much So That The Car Is Nearly Undrivable On The Highway Due To The Shaking. We’ve Had The Alignment And Balance Checked Multiple Times And Nothing Has Been Off And The Tires Have Been Rotated At Every Other Oil Change.. We’ve Tried Different Brands Of Tires And Nothing Seems To Be Helping The Problem. Every Time We’ve Contacted honda, They’ve Insisted The Tires Haven’t Been Balanced Correctly (even Though It Was Done At Their Dealer) Or That We’ve Gone 500 Miles Too Far Past Getting Them Rotated And Thus Won’t Replace Them. Needless To Say, We’ll Be Buying A Toyota Or Ford Next Time. *tr

This Vehicle Was Having A Continuous Roaring Noise From The Rear When The Vehicle Is Being Driven. Took To Proctor honda Of Tallahassee And Mentioned The Problem. honda Dealer Noticed The Rear Tires Were Beginning To Cup And Rotated Tires To Address Sound Issue And Blamed The Tires As The Malfunctioning Part By Recommending A Tire Replacement. At That Time The Tire Toyo Spectrums Were Only 1 Year And 9 Months Old Having Being Installed On 3/2009 , Had A 65k Tread Life Warranty. The 2006 And 2007 Models Of honda civic Had Technical Service Bulletins Issued Regarding The Rear Upper Control Arms Causing Uneven Wear Of Rear Tires (cupping) Service Bulletin Number : 08-001date Of Bulletin : Feb 08, 2008 ,nhtsa Item Number : 10024687. This honda Was Purchased On 11/2007 And Was Obviously Manufactured During The 2007 Year. The Proctor honda Mechanics Believe That The Rear Upper Control Arms Have Already Been Replaced On This Vehicle But I Have No Documentation Revealing A Date Any Such Work Was Done. I Have Contacted The Previous Dealer Hennessey honda And The Previous Owner And Neither Have Had These Upper Control Arms Replaced. Now In May 2012 These Tires That Were Rotated With The Tires On The Vehicle That Were Not Cupping In 2010 Are Now Severely Cupped ( High /low Areas) While The Front Tires Are Not Cupped At All From My Inspection. Seems Isolated To The Rear Of Vehicle. The Rear Cupping Occurs Primarily On The Inside Part Of The Tire Nearest To The Vehicle But It Is Severe. This Vehicle Has Already Had The Lower Engine Block Replaced Due To Cracking Coolant Passages Which I Might Emphasize That The 2007 honda civic Also Has Issues With. This Is My Mom’s Vehicle And I Want Her To Be Safe Driving This And Do Not Want To Keep Buying New Tires ( Of A Different Brand) Only To Have Them Prematurely Worn And Cupping Of Tires Caused As Well. Please Investigate This Issue ???? *tr

The Vehicle Has Defective Upper Control Arms And Flange Bolts Which Cause The Tires To Wear Fast And Dangerously, As Well At Cause The Car To Shake In The Back While Driving. This Is A Defect In The Car And honda Will Pay For It But Only If The Vehicle Is Still Under Factory Warranty. By The Time I Bought The Car And Noticed The Problem It Was Out Of Warranty. This Is Unacceptable! It Is A Defect! They Should Have To Pay For It! *tr

When I Purchases The Car In 2008, Even During The Test Drive, The Car Seemed Excessively Loud But The Salesman Stated That It Was Just The Bad Road We Were On.

Each Time, The Mechanic Told Me The Tires Were To The Point Of Being Extremely Dangerous. Again,the Mechanic Is Stating That My Tires Are To A Very Dangerous Point And I Need New Ones. This Will Be 5 Sets Of Tires In 5 Years. *tr

I Drove For Months With An Excessive Vibration. (’cause I’m An Idiot!) I Finally Took It In A Couple Of Months Ago Because I Had To Drop To 10-20 Miles Below The Speed Limit To Avoid Rattling My Brains Out. I Had To Replace All Four Tires And Get An Alignment. At The Time The Mechanic Told Me I Had A Really Odd Wear Pattern, He’d Never Seen. Today I Found Out About The Problem Report Issued By honda About This Very Thing.
