HOLY COW!!! ONLY 59,500 miles on my 2007 Honda Civic EX 4DR and the starter goes out?!!!!!!!

Thanks a lot Honda! I'm glad you're saving money on making cheap starters cause this repair is going to cost me over $450!!!!! I have owned Honda's since 1978 and have never had a failure this early on. If this is a sign that other things are going fail on this car than I'm going to seriously rethink my loyalty to Honda.

I'm NOT happy!!!

For having a Honda and taking pretty good care of it with routine checkups at the Honda dealership, I was a little surprised to have the starter go out on me one morning. I thought Hondas were built much better and could easily go over 100,000 miles without having any major parts, except for things like tires and brakes replaced. Because of this, unfortunately, this will probably be my last Honda.

From Googling this issue, it looks like this is a common issue with the 8th generation Honda Civics. I asked the mechanic at the dealership about how common this problem is and he just smiled with a big grin...telling me that this is a very common issue. If anyone ever starts a class action lawsuit on this issue, count me in.

Without warning, my starter went out.Saturday morning, start the car, and "click." Had to get it towed--will cost me $450.00. This is much too soon for this type of problem. No warning, nothing. I get my car checked every 3,000 miles--oil, lube, tires, etc. I have also had to repair the brakes.

My next car will be a Toyota. They seem much more reliable. I am not happy!!!!!

My car's starter went out after 5 years. I've already replaced engine block, visors, axles, oil leaks....I didn't expect anything like this happens to a 5 years old car. I'm very disappointed in Honda. I won't get another one for sure.

Civic LX 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 92,000 miles

The quality of the Honda Civic has gone down substantially over the past years. On my wife's 2007 civic, had major oil seal leak which required engine block work; replacement of starter; two sun visors replaced; and axle replaced. We owned 3 Civic's before this one and never had such problems. Won't be purchasing a Civic any time soon again.

The starter went out. One click and that's it. Nobody stocks them yet except Honda. $225 just for the part. But here's why I'm not happy: This starter is soooo much quieter than the old one was, even when it was new. I think the original starter was defective. Actually, I think it's the solenoid, which is integrated into it.
