2007 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #5

Mar 072009


  • 48,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Honda Civic. The contact stated that while driving under 20 mph the vehicle made a rattling sound on the front passenger side. The failure also occurred when the vehicle was making a right or left turn. The contact took the vehicle to the dealer who replaced the front axle but that has not remedied the failure. The dealer could not determine what caused the noise which made it impossible for them to repair the vehicle. The contact stated that something was very wrong with the vehicle and fears that a crash could occur. The failure mileage was 48,000.

Slow throttle response since purchase, door glass rattle since purchase, the third gear would give resistance, which is a known problem with the six speed transmission. I patched the problem by changing the transmission fluid and installing a shorter shifter yet this is not a permanent solution. Honda has refused to repair the actual problem with the third gear synchro and at one point stated that it was probably caused by my driving, the problem with the vehicle going into third gear is a known problem and there is a technical service bulletin that Honda corporate has released for the exact problem. The headliner rattles, door gasket seal has been coming off since purchase, suspension popping noise in the front passenger side strut since purchase and the sound has become more frequent, the driver side visor was defective and was replaced, the driver door hits the fender when opening just started happening since Honda worked on my vehicle. I have been taking my vehicle to two different dealerships (recommended by Honda corporate) and nothing has been properly repaired. I feel as though I have been given the run around for the past year. Honda has made several attempts to repair the problems and has not been able to, they have only damaged my vehicle during their attempts to repair it. They have damaged the front bumper three times, the side of the vehicle once, the door and fender once. They of course denied any involvement in the damage, then repair it under warranty.

I returned my 2007 Civic coupe for its initial service, and notified the dealer that I was hearing a loud popping noise from the front driver's side strut area. They replaced both front strut assemblies, but the front left assembly continues to make the same loud popping noise. I asked them to inspect it for the B1 service, but they could not duplicate the sound. Yet, as I drove out of the lot, 'pop.' I'm not happy with this, but I am not getting satisfactory attention for this problem.

Transmission for 2007 Honda Civic si seem to not want to engage 3rd gear especially when cold. Multiple occasions. Seem to have something blocking the shifter and it will grind the gear or pop out. Popping noise from front driver side suspension also have been experience on the vehicle.

This is a notification of a defect before it becomes a failure which causes accident or loss of life. I have repeatedly returned my 2007 Honda Civic si sedan for service (4 times) for a defect in the front suspension which could cause strut failure. The problem is unresolved. Internet research indicates many other owners (2006-07 model year) with the same problem. The consumer stated battery is dead if vehicle is not run for 5 or more days updated 12/12/07
