CarComplaints.com Notes: Haven't we all owned one of these things at some point? Despite being a popular first car for teenage drivers and, as a result, being beat up like no other, the late 90's Civic is a true endurance car. And it still gets better gas mileage than more modern cars.

There appears to be a defect in the temperlite glass on four of the windows described. It is inside the two panes of glass with no apparant cracks in glass or molding. The inside of the glass, or the adhesive material used in between the glass is bubbling which causes poor vision. The vehicle is currently inoperable because of fear of poor visibility. I have notified Honda and am providing them with a letter of liability and informing them that I will be contacting several consumer safety administrations and commissions since they refuse to correct the problem under my extended warranty purchased for the vehicle. This is a severe problem which seems to be possibly caused by some type of contamination or vapors present when the glass was constructed, stored, or installed in the vehicle.

Windshield developed a crack which starts at the base of the window below the plastic molding and is continuing to grow larger. Dealer claims there is no defect with the window, and the probable cause is a pebble striking the windshield. When the crack was initially noticed it was about 3 in. In length. It has grown close to 6 in.. the windshield of a 2+ month old car cannot develop a 6 in crack from a little pebble without there being a stress fracture of some kind with in the original glass. Furthermore the crack starts at the base of the windshield further suggesting a defect. Intend to contact the manufacturer in the near future.
