2006 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #1

May 012006

Civic 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 100 miles


On my 2006 Honda Civic si, rear spoke covers on leather wrapped steering wheel protrude with sharp edges. This comes in contact with the fingers while driving. It is not merely a tactile concern since the sharp edge has actually cut my finger tip within the first week of owning this new car. The concern exists on other leather wrapped steering wheels of the same model. There is currently no solution to this matter with american Honda and it is obviously a bad fitment of the steering wheel back onto a leather wrapped steering wheel. It is bad design and can interfere with driving ability of the car. Every time the wheel is turned about 180 degrees, upon return to center the sharp plastic edge of the back spoke covers come slicing at the finger tips. With no solution currently planned and what I would call poor response in Honda's resolution scenario, this needed to be brought to a higher level of attention. Since this affects my model of car and possibly other 2006 Civics with the leather wrapped steering wheel option, it will affect many customers and will potentially injure drivers and interfere with driving ability.
