The contact owns a 2005 Honda Civic. The contact stated that while driving 25 mph, he heard a loud noise from the front driver side wheel. The vehicle was taken to a local repair shop where the contact was informed that water in the wheel bearing caused the wheel to break. The contact called the manufacturer who offered no assistance.

2005 Honda Civic several failures. The consumer stated the master cylinder failed suddenly and the front suspension collapsed. He stated the ball bearing cage could not be lubricated. Without lubrication, the ball bearings can grind themselves into dust. The aluminum knuckles fractured because the wheels were not supported.

I was driving to taco bell to get some late night food. Well I get through the light that leads into the parking lot...(I've had some squeaking coming from my front end early in the am and once its really warmed up B.T.w.). so, I get through and going about 15 mph a squeak then a kind of pop and next thing I know im pulled into the curb, hop it, and take out a bush. I was so mad! my car has 4600 miles on it! so I back it off the curb and pull it over. There was bad curb damage on the wheel and my wheel is very. Looked like very positive camber. Not to mention the nice scratches and green marks the bush gave to my bumper. Ugh!!! I love my brand new car so much! I wash it twice a week and wax once every 2-3 weeks. Always checking fluids, always taking good care of it. I just don't understand....well I had it towed to the dealership, figuring this would all be taken care of considering this vehicle is under warrant and not even due for the first oil change yet. Well, I get the call back from them telling me they do not know what caused the parts to break or come loose. They didn't know if it was from me hitting the curb after or not. To me, since they didn't know, this should be replaced. My concern on top of the $1,500 this is costing me out of pocket to fix, is what if this happened on the freeway"?? going 65 mph, that would have sent me into the median and possibly caused death. I am a full time student in college working 2 jobs so I can pay for this not even four month old $20,000 car. I am outraged that Honda did not take care of me with this. Is this wrong" I am seeking all of the assistance I can get and possible legal action. Thank you, ~jeffrey vietri.
