2016 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #5

Civic EX-L 1.5L Turbo

  • CVT transmission
  • 2,159 miles


This is a constant problem with this make. Android Auto sometimes does not connect at all and I have to unplug, replug, or completely reboot the entire electronics/audio system. With Apple iPhones, the problem is even worse. Recently, I have not had this problem as often, luckily.

Civic LX 2.0L Dohc

  • CVT transmission
  • 48,000 miles

Every once in awhile when I’m driving I will get a notice “Bad USB check owners manual”. And my phone will not charge or work via the USB option, I can only listen to music via Bluetooth. It has done this for the past 6 months (incidentally as soon as the warranty expired at 36000 mi). If this happens I have to plug my phone into my other usb charger.

Civic Touring 1.5L Turbo

  • CVT transmission
  • 3,200 miles

Honda has had my car 45 out of the 70 days I have owned this car. They said they cannot fix this issue at this time and that I simply had to "just deal with it." Will NEVER buy a Honda again after how I have been treated.

Civic XT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 500 miles

The infotainment system randomly cuts out. Also if you're listening to a USB audio file it will stop if you get a phone call and not come back on unless the engine is off for a period of time, then restarted. The Android Auto randomly cuts off. So much for using your phone as a NAV. The dealer is no help because they can't consistently recreate the problem. One dealer claimed that only about 3 phones work with Android Auto and ours isn't one of them. We have Samsung s5's, one of the most popular cell phones sold.

Civic Coupe

  • Automatic transmission
  • 600 miles

Sometimes when you plug the phone into the USB port to charge it will connect to Andriod Auto. Sometimes it won't. Very annoying.
