2018 Honda Civic Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 202018

Civic EX 2.0L

  • CVT transmission
  • 450 miles


Car is brand new lease vehicle. Wiring should be protected from rodent damage. Automotive engineers should incorporate this into the manufacturing specs. Climate change can affect rodent populations. Anyone can open any new car engine compartment and see wiring that is exposed to rodent chewing. This problem is costing vehicle owners big money every year. Most dealers, repair facilities and mechanics say this is a real problem.

problem #1

Feb 262018

Civic Touring 1.5L, V4

  • Automatic transmission
  • 311 miles

This is a brand new vehicle, got it February 8, 2018. Drove to work today and when I went to drive home the dashboard lit up like a Christmas tree- Emission problem, lane mitigation system problem, cruise control problem and a few others. Turned the vehicle off then restarted, with difficulty. Managed to drive to the dealership as I was not impressed that a brand new vehicle could have this many problems. At the dealership they informed me that rats/and or mice had made a nest and manged to chew through wires and eat away at the battery. I have yet to know the cost, but this is very disappointing to say the least.
