While driving on the highway suddenly the Road Departure Mitigation system, Collision Mitigation Braking System and the Adaptive Cruise Control System show up on the dash as problems and functionality is gone and to see your dealer.

23 Nov

Very hard to upgrade system.

4 Nov

From interactive assisted cruise control system to cameras to get a situational awareness at any moment during the operation.

22 Oct

In addition, the Braking System warning light came on.

6 Oct

but as I started to change lanes I crossed a line, the system slammed on the brakes and tried to force me back into the rear of the car I was overtaking, note, lane assist was not on.

28 Sep

Factory stereo system leaves some to be desired.

26 Sep

It doesn’t have a GPS system.

My 2018 Accord was making some kind of squeaking sound from under the dash or somewhere in the front of the vehicle.

23 May

Positives: brakes, engine and transmission have been fine other than computer updates.

9 Jan

I took the car back to the dealership and they told me that two brackets was missing that cause the ‘radar’ to shift and need to be replace and the radar realigned.

6 Jan

Sadly, Accord is no longer available with a manual transmission.

9 Nov

but because I was concerned about driving a car with a used transmission as well as wondering when the batteries in the Ford might give out (which would cost thousands to replace) I decided to buy a new vehicle.

24 Aug

You do feel the shifts transmit into the cabin every now and then

5 Jul

I have not made the first payment yet on this vehicle and according to the dealership, the transmission is defective and needs to be replaced.

29 Jun

That transmission is from Nissan so why not have the Honda 10 speed auto used in the 2.0 turbo charged engine?

15 Jun

but the car doesn't drive like it's a big car Smooth ride Adaptive cruise is smoother than the 2017 Accord I had Cons: 10 spd transmission needs a couple of seconds to kick down when attempting to speed up.

The 19" Michelin tires are low profile with the tread design is rated a 0 on a scale from 1 -5 for road surface noise.

11 Oct

On the highway the noise is kind of on the louder side because of the low profile tires.

30 Aug

Low profile tires aren't very forgiving for ride and car wash track has scraped bottom of left front bumper because car is so low.

While driving on freeway all dashboard lites went black and radio stopped.

The car brakes because the sensors fail.

12 Mar

Brakes are 10 out of 10, I am very sure I could stop on a dime anywhere.

24 Jan

Also, Honda requires the parking brake to be set for the car to start, which I guess is a safety feature with a manual transmission?

1 Dec

My only complaint about this car is that the emergency brake must be applied in order to start the car, not a big deal, and I got used to it,

17 Sep

but noticeable issue is the radio knob does not turn off the unit completely and requires repeated presses to keep it off.

When I raise the radio volume past a certain setting the noise will cease.

1 Jan

The screen is up high where it should be so one does not take their eyes away too long off the road to even switch radio stations.

25 Oct

You can hear noise even if you listen to the radio.

16 Jul

Since purchasing the vehicle I’ve changed out the factory radio since the Honda sport doesn’t come with HD radio which means you are going to get a ton of static on some radio stations.

The radio produces a slight static-like buzzing sound.

My only minor complaints are that when the blue tooth switches from my phone to my wife's phone the system gets confused.

18 Feb

The audio system is garbage it randomly shuts off and turns back on my phone and my wife's phone sometimes work syncing up to Android carplay sometimes no problems sometimes nothing

18 Dec

The lane keep assist system will randomly steer the car off the road.

5 Dec

About 6 months in, In February 2019 I started getting dashboard messages about the Smart entry system and the Adaptive Cruise control (ACC) system.

7 Jul

Steering can seem unsafe at times due to it swerving you thinking you’re not driving correctly due to mis readings with the sensor.

20 Dec

The radar sensor is located under the license plate and has no type of protection, rocks from the road can and will damage this sensor and it is very costly to replace.

Since the Acura TLX is basically an upscale version of the Honda Accord, I measured the distance from the ground to the bottom of the sensor and it is 9+ inches higher and is less than 23% the area.

18 Nov

24 Oct

times in the last three months with sensor problems, back-up camera problems, door lock problems and windshield wiper problems.

Also, the front sensors often go off when Im at a complete stop at a stoplight for no absolute reason, dealership ran a diagnostic and they cant duplicate the problem.

No real issue, just annoying light.

I wish the acceleration was a bit faster on the jump to get me ahead at stop signs, lights, and highway ramp exits,

6 Nov

Received notice from Honda about possible problem with turbo-charged engine which will cause engine check light to come on and could be a problem with the engine which would require yet another trip to the service dept.

5 Mar

The rear lights stopped working causing me to get pulled over, I tried to get it taken care of and they charged me to reset the entire computer system causing a pretty high bill.

14 Dec

I'm still getting used to the Honda Sensing features and I have already disabled the auto headlight feature because there were a few times they came on when I felt like they shouldn't have.

18 Jun

The car’s sensors are constantly sensoring other things on the road rather than other vehicles and when it actually does sense cars the vehicle completely stops.

2 Apr

My vehicle has had issues with the Automatic Cruise Control, Tires Sensors, Bluetooth Radio, and Sensors in general.

A better design would have raised the center panel and offered more storage in front of the shifter so the cupholders could be lowered and out of the way.

As for audio, the low end felt weak and I added a 10'' subwoofer in the trunk, an amp and a sub volume control knob using an unoccupied panel to the left of the steering wheel.

but brake issues and weird noises supposedly from brakes!

It has issues dealing with snow and dashboard lights up or just goes black intermittently and can only be corrected by turning the car off or disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting the battery.

25 Apr

The battery died several times

Battery died after 200 miles.

i have a 2017 honda crv that has less than 29000 miles It has three batterys now and recently it went dead again the dealer tells me its because it sat for a day and that i have to drive it everyday to keep it charged.

However, there is a serious problem in the car electrical system for the battery keeps discharging.

Already in the service department for electrical glitches and the transmission gas hard shift.

The CVT transmission would often malfunction on semi strep inclines like driveways or businesses with steep entrances.

18 Jun

OK folks, if you're a little older like me and have been driving around in automatic transmissions most of your life and you've actually got a pulse, CVT transmissions SUCK.

26 Mar

Some designs and options try to make it feel like step transmission which from an engineers perspective makes no sense.

16 Dec

button that controls movement of the shifter knob broke into several parts and fell from the shifter knob causing an issue with properly shifting vehicle into gears.

11 Sep

But the transmission could use to hold gears a little more even if it gives up some acceleration.

The car is so under powered and noisy.

19 Nov

I had a 15 year old Hyundai with close to 200,000 miles and it didn't make this kind of engine noise.

9 Aug

CONS: The interior is noisy at highway speeds 60mpg and up Lots of leaky seals and wind noise as well as engine noise at higher speeds.

14 Jan

Two days later, the lower gears made more pronounced vibrations/noises.

The engine has some knocking sound and a bit loud accompanying with a liitle vibration and the car jerks and breakes abraptly with a light press on the break pedal.

The Bluetooth works intermittently, My brother in law told me he bought the FIT and sold it after 6 months it was so noisy on the road.

24 Mar

I purchased a 2017 HRV AWD EX-L Navi last year and after 10 months it started making a grinding vibration noise when accelerating at around 35 mph.

18 Oct

It is very noisy on the road you can’t hear the radio.

Mine has the side view so u can see into the other lane by a camera on your radio, which I thought at first I would never use

The transmission is TERRIBLE, the RADIO is nothing

However, after a week with it, using the touchscreen climate and radio controls becomes second nature and I enjoy the tech look of it.

but I absolutely hate the tablet type of radio and air/heat controls.

The noise stopped and the dealer told me a rock had probably gotten stuck behind the brake plate.

I can actually take my foot off the brake at a stoplight and not worry.

29 Dec

The brakes make a strange sound and i can feel as if it hit my foot as I press the brakes.

30 May

Turn it on and when the car stops you don't have to keep your foot on the break.

23 Apr

However, I also found that when I hit the break from 40 rpm to 10 rpm, and then accelerate from 10 to 20, 25 rpm, the car (engine) almost stop and you can feel that the something switch between 10 to 20 rpm.

First issue, front windshield blurry in the bottom inch before the dashboard, hey, what can you do , its not perfect, its a $21000 dollar vehicle, not gonna bring it to the dealership to replace it, we can live with that.

25 Sep

in driver's cabin, (c) for some reason, rain drops seem to stay on windshield, washer/wipers don't sweep them away, going to try windexing them today and see if it continues to be problem.

Honda claimed it was a heat shield they fixed it & we are still having problems.

Also, sitting in the front at a comfortable distance to the steering wheel and controls, (I am 5'3") felt like I was right up against the windshield.

I can`t stand the brakes on this vehicle, very poor acceleration, I feel the transmission on this car is no good at all.

The transmission on my vehicle will be replaced next week.

Test drive at 50+ with the radio off and listen before you buy this car.

It either cannot 'find' the satellites or it shows your location completely wrong, on another street or in a forest or in a lake!

10 Oct

.I shouldn't have to upgrade to the highest model to get satellite radio.

22 Sep

but especially Navigation System & GPS have BIG problems - either never starts, get stuck in a "searching" mode not finding satellites, or it shows the car completely off the road in a wrong location - useless if you need to use Navigation.

The Sirius antennae cover on the roof is too large--looks like a shark fin!

The automatic brake system is helpful if you aren't fast enough to brake before almost hitting a car if they brake in front of you quickly.

It does have a CVT that performs pretty good and unfortunately mimics an automatic transmission when accelerating hard, since people don't know that CVT's perform better at the best rev range.

While is 6th gear at 70 if you need to go without down shifting it will still zip you out of a tight situation.

The stick shift also feels good when shifting and the leather wrapped steering wheel feels good and smooth on the hands, I just wish it was heated to take the chill off on those cold mornings.

Plus the steering wheel rocking wildly back and forth after the Odometer reaches 14,000 miles while the transmission is slipping does not feel as safe or comforting as a massage.

18 Mar

The interior rattles more than it should.

22 Jun

The brakes are terrible, I bought the car as a 'Honda Certified' car, I had to return it TWICE for the brakes and still squeaks.

26 Aug

Within 6 months parts of the dashboard came loose and/or began to rattle, the front windows make strange noises when driving with them down, and in the winter I would hear metallic grinding noises when driving in cold weather.

18 Jul

The road noise is no worse than any other compact car.

14 Aug

But, the paint is very, very poor.

14 Oct

paint does fade and chip so i decided to plasti dip the car.

12 May

The paint is not that well

3 Jan

There is also a lot of plastic on the body including the wraparound bumper, and the paint starts peeling off these parts after about 5 years.

10 Dec

The black trim around the windows and pilars first scaled away a clear layer of coating and now are peeling off: they're not painted,

28 Jul

The paint (which is covered by warranty) peeled off the car within 65k miles as well, requiring a piece-meal repair job resulting in a vehicle which is now multiple shades of blue.

21 May

The paint started to crack and peel from two years ago.

18 Dec

Cost: $0 because Honda extended their paint warranty to 7 years Unlimited miles for all affected models with this defect. WOW!

11 Sep

My second gripe with this car is the paint.

15 Jul

The biggest problem is the paint.

22 Aug

The cushioning on the DX model is terrible I have herniated discs in my neck and I am tall would not reccomend this for someone 6 ft or taller I'm always scrunching down to see past the windscreen at lights

10 Nov

I've also never had to replace a light bulb in my Civic, that's not the case with American made vehicles.

14 Oct

the headlights are not good at all restored them and still barely see the road and after installing Led lights i would go for after market ones

18 Mar

My rear LED brake light had to be replaced due to a bad solder point - a known defect.

25 May

after 15 months, the check engine light came on.

22 May

I then drove back to the dealer they said, “Oh no, your IMA battery just needs a scheduled software upgrade.” Sothe engine light goes on for an upgrade, if you leave your gas cap loose, or any other major problem.

7 Jan

In a little over 12 months, car was in the shop four times-twice for Check IMA light, once for Check Engine light, once because entire driver's side window assembly failed-the whole thing, window, frame, motor for electric window.

but is lacking in some basic features like: vanity lights, power seats, in- dash 6 disc changer, and homelink.

1 Jun

Poor design there, seats could be more comfortable, lots of rattles and squeaks and idles rough at red lights.

3 Jan

So far there is no aftermarket replacement, so you're screwed unless you drive around like me and leave the windshield trim exposed and ugly.

10 Dec

Soon after I checked it myself and there was nothing broken: only a heat shield was slightly bent which I could just push it back straight with my bare hands and end of the problem: $350.00 saved!

26 Aug

Low low maintenance just the norm oil change tires battery brakes wipers etc.

18 Mar

Over the years I've spent money on this one for oil, tires, tune-ups, cabin air cleaners, wiper blades, one transmission fluid change, and a driver-side door checker (the gizmo that makes the door stay open when the car is on an angle).

Also you need to be careful on blind spots due to unusual windshield design which on the other hand completes the sleek exterior look of the car.

22 Apr

I am a little disappointed that the trunk lid does not have a liner on it, no computer, and no intermittent wipers.

15 Nov

Overheating, gear box failure, brake and accelerator issues etc..

28 Jul

but the transmission has utterly failed multiple times.

31 Aug

Aside: Like any highly-tuned sports car, if you saddle it with eco tires or keep running that worn suspension 60k miles past when it was ready to be replaced or fail to do the maintenance, the car will go to shit, and it will not be fun to drive.

18 Mar

The clearcoat on the hood was cracking and failing,

15 Oct

At 30,000 miles the hybrid battery failed ($3000 Battery),

22 May

After two weeks, the car was towed in with a failed speed sensor (feels like the transmission

I used to have a Honda (94 prelude) best car I ever owned.

14 Oct

but yet manuals dont really require maintenance, on top of that it has a timing chain no rattle or vibrations like most of the cars u used to have.

10 Dec

After taking it inside to the mechanic they sworn the noise had nothing to do with the air-bag replacement.

5 Sep

There is a little road noise,

20 Apr

The only complaints I have are the lack of Bluetooth and a little more road noise than I would like.

1 Aug

By the time I got rid of this car in 2016, at 8 years old, the paint was completely faded on the top and sides, the interior was starting to come apart, the front end was groaning and making all sorts of noises (suspected engine mount wear).

22 Mar

Ford used so much plastic for the dash, door panels, and console that by the time it had 40K miles on it, the inside started to rattle like it was falling apart already.

3 Nov

Road noise is definitely there on the highway

3 Jan

Lots of wind noise, road bumps, and interior quality hiccups (such as a ticking CD-player) prevent it from being a "professional" car.

2 Aug

Now brakes make a horrible noise.

12 Jan

Yes the a/c tweaks with the speed The inside cabin does have noise You can feel anything you run over The radio is not the best

12 Dec

I don’t spend any money on this car besides brakes, oil and tires.

5 Nov

The only issue i have ever had with my car is brakes and tires!

Paint does blister,dash lights flicker once in a while and my right knee rubs the parking brake while driving .

5 Aug

With 223,000 miles, I have never replaced anything except the tires (Kumho Solus) at 106,000 and 195,000 miles, the brakes twice, at 113,000 and 220,000 miles and the ac clutch coil & compressor at ~165,000 ($2,500 combined cost).

2 Aug

Brake pads replaced after 3 years and 60K miles.

3 Mar

(Brakes seem "grabby" and steering doesn't fit me; HCH has a telescoping and tilt wheel that allows a more aggressive steering position).

7 Nov

Had to replace the brake pads at 20k which kinda irritated me,

18 Aug

Great gas mileage, and it was comfortable to drive and I'm 6'3" (although the hand brake can get a little uncomfortable) I've had this car for 6 months and put 10k miles on it and its as awesome as when I drove it off the lot.

14 Mar

It's not the most comfortable, you'll lose all your races at red lights

10 Nov

I've also never had to replace a light bulb in my Civic, that's not the case with American made vehicles.

14 Oct

the headlights are not good at all restored them and still barely see the road and after installing Led lights i would go for after market ones

21 Nov

Update: The lights for the gas gauge don't always work.

30 Sep

No automatic headlights, no lighted vanity mirrors, no rear cup holders.

11 Jul

At a light I tried to shift back to 1st and it wouldn't budge.

1 Feb

A/C doesn't work at stop lights.

30 Oct

Headlights fell out, interior is falling apart, windows have broke, power window motors went out, transmission is going out, had the cheapest tires money could buy on the car when purchased.

25 Jun

At stop lights the car cuts out - I thought it was just me

14 Oct

bough it used a month ago from a dealer car feels like something gonna break when going on bumpy roads its a sedan not an Si so its kinda slow on 5 speed manual

22 Mar

Once I reached 60K it started to idle rough, with 150K spark plugs in it!!

3 Jan

Lots of wind noise, road bumps, and interior quality hiccups (such as a ticking CD-player) prevent it from being a "professional" car.

13 Mar

Now I think my civic has a suspension problem.

3 Mar

Ride is a bit stiff, bordering on harsh on poor pavement.

18 Jun

The suspension is noisy and the interior plastic scratches very, very easily.

9 Apr

Personally, I think Honda cut corners on their suspension (rear).

3 Feb

Front brakes grab unevenly, right front side vibrate and make noise braking on uneven pavement.

11 Nov

I have been to the dealer countless times to fix suspension issues and rattles all over the car pretty much everywhere from the moon roof to the dash and pillars.

25 Oct

I have 12K miles and so far other than rough shifting during low speeds and vibration when idle and AC on, I have no other complaints.

3 Dec

Cons: pointless tire pressure sensors fail & expensive to replace, front roof pillars creates large blind spots, 205/55 R16 tires slip a lot starting in snow, with torque steer common.

2 Dec

Problems include failing door locks, window motors, visors, blower fan electrical components, and A/C compressor failure.

10 Nov

This generation of Civic has also had issues with the windshield visors failing after a few years.

28 Feb

Left front drive shaft failed 42,000 miles replaced both rear wheel bearings at 65,000 miles now the rear shocks are leaking fluid and must be replaced as well.

30 Jul

One electric motor position sensor was faulty (common problem for 2007 built cars.

Both sun visors came apart in the heat and failed to stay up.
