Civic Hybrid 1.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

I bought this car in May 2007 and as I drove it I could hear the rear tires getting a humming noise. I took it to the dealer and was told the tires were cupped and that they would replace them under warranty. When I went to get the tires mounted I was told that I would have this problem until Honda came up with a solution to the suspension problem. What suspension problem?!!!!!!!! I e-mailed a letter to the service manager asking why I wasn't made aware of this problem when I purchased the car. Honda conveniently came up with a suspension kit the following week. They installed the suspension kit and put four new tires on. Well, after 8000 miles on these tires they are worn again and my car needs aligning in the rear. Now the dealer tells me that my car is out of alignment due to hitting pot holes in the road. They align it for me at no charge but will not replace the tires for a third time in 13 months.

Now I am working with a lawyer to get this problem resolved at no cost to me. I would really prefer them to take this car back because I am concerned about other problems this suspension problem may be causing with my car. Evidently the kit they put on my car was not the solution to this problem.

Noticed the problem in April but thought it was just me. Kept getting louder and louder and I could tell it was coming from the rear. Took it back to dealer and they called me and told me it was uneven wear on my tires due to the way the tires are tilted on the back. Their suggestion was to have new suspension put on and they would realign the tires and see if that would help. I asked if this was something other people were complaining about and he said yes it tends to be a problem with the Civic. They would not replace the tires though which I think is not right, since this seems to be a manufacturing error. Hopefully this will help some. I have a 1990 Honda Civic with 187,000 miles on it and it has never had any major problem. I love my car otherwise but this definitely should be something the Honda corp. should address.

Civic LX 3.2L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 7,000 miles

Two of my tires are severely worn on just one side. I have had it in the shop twice over the past two and a half weeks. They first rotated the tires. I took it back because the front end was really shaking when I would brake at high speed. They said the rotors? needed sanding or something so I said okay. It is a bit better but today I found that I had a flat tire and took my car to the nearest tire dealer to have it fixed and he showed me my tires. They look awful. The fellows at the Honda dealership never mentioned that I might already need new tires. Boy was I hot. I called the fellow that sold me the car and he said that there had been some other Civics with this problem and that they will get it taken care of. I asked if they would give me new tires and he said they would probably have to prorate the price. I tell you one thing if I have to pay for those tires I will not be very happy.

When I went to rotate my tires on my Honda Civic I noticed that the inside portions of the rear tires were very worn in places with sort of cupping shapes where there was no tread left at all. I went to the Honda dealer and they sent me to another place that sells tires to have this fixed. I had to have my rear wheels realigned and then had to buy all new tires. I believe Honda's generally have had good reliability ratings but this was completely unacceptable in my opinion. I have since been told this is a problem on these cars and I would honestly advise anyone not to buy one of these for this reason.

  • Automatic transmission

As i said before about my Condenser, A PAIN IN THE ASS. Don't get the car it sucks. U run over some dirt you get a flat tire! who replaces 3 tires in 1 year????? and the representative at the store suggested that my last "good" tire be replaced to because it was worn. But Honda doesn't tell you about the safety bulletins that say that their is actually a default with the car that wears your tires early. Trust Me, call the Honda company not dealership and ask about the safety bulletins on your cars.

Civic LX 4 cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 24,211 miles

Honda has a service bulletin on the problem that I found online. They said it was a tire problem and that the tires were not rotated. I called "BS" on this and went to an independent tire shop who had been very helpful on a previous problem on another car. The rear alignment was right on but the front was off from when I purchased the car new. This can happen when the cars are tied down too tight. Anyway I went online and found that a lot of other owners are having the same problem. I downloaded a service bulletin that I found online and took it to the service manager, they called me back and set an appointment, I then asked what it will cost me? They said that they will furnish all parts including new tires, no charge, When I checked later they said that I would have to cover 75% of new cost. I purchased then myself at a better price. I have further found other websites with other owners are having the same problem...It seems that Honda has a design problem???

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

MY 2007 HONDA CIVIC IS NOT EVEN A YEAR OLD AND I NEED TO SPEND $440 TO FIX IT!! THIS IS WITH THE $2500 EXTENDED WARRANTY AND TIRE SERVICE WARRANTY!!!!! THERE ARE 25,000 MILES OF HIGHWAY DRIVING ON THE CAR, BUT AT 10,000 THE SOUND AND VIBRATION WERE NOTICEABLE. NO ONE WANTS TO REPLACE OR CHECK ALIGNMENT WITHOUT COST, WHICH IS WHAT YOU BUY AN EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR???!!!!! UNFLIPPINBELIEVEABLE!! THE TIRES ARE WORN IN A STRIATION PATTERN, NOT JUST WORN DOWN WHICH MEANS SOMETHING WAS WRONG FROM THE BEGINNING!!!!!

(reported on)

Civic LX

  • Automatic transmission
  • 40,000 miles

The car is brand new and, although we use it to commute as all our other cars we expected the tires to last about a year. We thought at first it was because of the mileage or because it was not aligned properly. But now our dealer is telling us that there were several car owners of the same year and model that have come to them with the same issues. They think it might be the suspension and they will let American Honda Co. know about it because of the number of customers that had the same issues.
