2007 Honda Civic Hybrid Owner Comments

problem #4

Civic Hybrid

  • miles


The rear axle has been making a loud humming noise at speeds of (50-55 mph). Tires are very badly cupped in the rear, despite being relatively new. Cupped tires cause a dangerous situation when driving. The car seems unstable on tight turns, as well as high speeds. Tire cupping happened despite having new tires and a wheel alignment done when they were put in. This is a problem of every Honda civic 06-08 owner I have encountered, and there is plenty of evidence on online forums to confirm this information. Honda needs to issue a recall on the rear camber arms of the civic 07, as they cause dangerous premature tire wear that may cause, or in the least contribute to, injury or death.

Because of manufacturer error - the upper control arms are making the tires wear out fast and uneven. Rear tires have toe - out appearance. There was a class action suit that expired in February. Elderly couple who bought car new, did not know that there was an issue - I was told by Honda that the free repair from the class action suit was no longer available. My car kas 82000 miles on it and it should be fixed for free, because the probably started at the factory.

Electric power steering fails to turn on. This has occurred 4-5 times so far and 3 in the last month. When we start the car on the electronic power steering fails to turn on also. We sometimes hear a noise under the dash. We turn the car on and off several times and it usually fixes the problem, but it takes a few minutes to this. This item should be grounds for a recall as it seems to be very common among online forums.

On multiple occasions at different speeds and different times during the day, weather, terrain, location, the power steering will randomly go out on the car. The most recent was on 9/4 when I was driving on 1-5. I am taking it to dealer tomorrow. I have researched this and see that many Honda Civic hybrid owners are complaining of the same thing.
