This car developed a vibration in the right front very soon after purchase. NO, I did not hit a curb or any other thing for that matter. It is getting worse as time goes on. I took it in to the shop to have the front end checked out and of course like all the other issues with this car there is nothing found to be wrong. They did rotate the tires and asked me to report back if the vibration moved. It did not move with the tires. It is still in the right front.

I have had it in since and they of course can find nothing wrong. They said it is the road. I told them to drive the blasted thing to Denver and back since the road has black top and concrete in different sections. They did or claim they did and again state nothing is wrong with the car. I drive it every day to work and fear that one day the wheel will come off and it will roll. Yes it sounds dramatic, but then it is me behind the wheel and I DO feel how bad the vibration is getting.

Never been so disappointed in a car I have purchased before. I bought it with only the miles on it that I put on during the test drive. I feel like I wasted a LOT of money when I could have risked my life just the same in some clunker off of craigslist.

Civic EX-L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 4,000 miles

Bought a brand new 2013 Honda Civic in June 2013; this is my second Civic. I loved my first one and had it to 185,000 miles with no issues.. At about 4,000 miles on this new one, started noticing a vibration in the wheels/tires/steering wheel AND seat at high speeds (over 60 mph). Have taken it back to dealer twice already; they keep telling me they can't find anything wrong. They balanced the wheels and rotated the tires (at my expense, of course), but it's still doing it. They suggested replacing my tires and I'm like WHAT?!?!?! This car was 15,000 miles on it; why would I drop another $600 on tires for something that YOU can't fix?????

I see that the 2006-2009 Honda Civics had some issues with suspension and vibration and Honda finally came back and admitted a problem (and agreed to pay for "part" of it). I am so tired of the dealer telling me that it should "fix itself" with the tire rotation and balancing. I've put another 2,000 miles on since that time and it's still doing it. I am so frustrated. I know the dealer is hoping I stay away because I have been a real pest about it so far.

Any ideas?
