Summary of Complaint

Traveling straight, I could not make small corrections in the steering. It would resist then over compensate. I took it to a dealer who told me the sensor problem was a recall covering other VINs but none covering my vehicle. The dealer also said they have had several other 2018 civics with same problem with VINs not included in recall. The dealer test drove my car and agreed it was the sensor, The dealer worked with Honda and got me a discount on parts and said it was the same problem other VINs have recall for but not mine. It was still an expensive repair after the discount that I should not have had to pay.

VIN: 2hgfc2f54jh****

Summary of Complaint

The contact owns a 2018 Honda Civic. The contact stated that while driving at 60 mph, the power steering had failed and the vehicle was difficult to steer. The tire pressure monitoring, brake system, electronic power steering, and stability assist warning lights were illuminated. The contact was able to drive to her residence. The dealer was made aware of the failure and informed the contact to turn off the vehicle and turn it back on to correct the failure. The power steering was corrected after restarting the vehicle; however, the warning lights were still illuminated. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and diagnosed with lost communication with the steering angle sensor. The dealer calibrated the steering angle sensor and cleared the DTC, then test drove the vehicle. The failure recurred a week later with an additional unknown warning light. The vehicle was towed a second time back to the dealer, who diagnosed that rodents were chewing the steering column wires. The dealer replaced the steering column wires and wrapped them in a tape produced by the manufacturer. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and informed the contact that the steering column wires were soy-insulated, which could attract rodents. The failure mileage was 31,879.

Summary of Complaint

2018 Honda Civic 2.0L Sedan bought in July 2018, starts to blow warm air from A/C from on October 2021, with only 50k miles on the car. Went to a mechanic for diagnosis since it was just over warranty and Honda dealer would charge $399 for just diagnosis and the only thing would be under cover is the condenser. The mechanic told me it is either a compressor leak or evaporator leak. I have read the comments online and it says the compressors and evaporator fail at a high rate due to bad design of the 10th gen Honda Civic A/C. I’ve also read that the condenser issue can lead to a compressor and evaporator leak. It is not a safety issue but it is unacceptable that a car which is only over 3 years with about 50k needs to be replaced the compressor or evaporator for over $1000.

Summary of Complaint

On or about 8-23-2021 I noticed that the vehicle’s steering wheel would stick when going on a curve or when suddenly changing lanes. The steering wheel does not return to center and not anticipating this I almost went off the road. I took the vehicle to koons honda Manassas,VA and they diagnosed a bad Rack Assembly. The vehicle is a 2018 civic with only 28k miles on it; the rack should not be failing this early. The cost for the repairs is $3500; I need the vehicle but cannot afford the repairs and on top of that I have a newborn and 7 year old that will be in the car. I do not feel the car is safe and Honda is giving me the runaround to fix it. I also feel that they know about the issue because not only have I read about similar complaints online but they diagnosed the issue within a couple of hours; when such issues would normally start being diagnosed with the simplest fixes like an allignment. I checked online and saw a recall from 2018 and think that this vehicle could have the same issue. I have been trying to address this with Honda but I don’t want to wait to have an accident for them to take me seriously.

Summary of Complaint

The AC is blowing hot air. I hardly use my AC so I don't know exactly when the issue started. I took my car to the Honda dealer in Buena Park CA. They told me that the warranty was expired. My vehicle is a 2018 with 35k + miles…how can that be? And as expected, Honda refuses to take responsibility. They told me a $300+ diagnostic was needed in order to identify the problem, and if the issue was the condenser if was free of charge. Now according to their findings, the issue IS NOT the condenser but the "evaporator" and the cost to repair it is $2000+. Per the comments here, the problems with the AC unit for 2016-2018 Honda Civics IS a highly reported issue. This should be a recall, and Honda should take full responsibility for all the parts/repairs of the entire A/C system for these cars. This is a safety issue to drivers and passengers because there were no vehicle warnings when the malfunction started.

Summary of Complaint

We believe our issue was caused by wiring harnesses coated in soy-based bio-plastics. In late June 2021 our 2018 Honda Civic emitted a strong odor of gasoline. The gasoline odor was detected 15 feet away from the vehicle. Noxious gasoline fumes were inhaled while driving and posed a health risk to driver and passengers, as well as possible fire hazard due to fumes. On June 30, 2021, the Honda Civic was taken to a local Honda dealership for service. It was inspected and signs of mouse damage on top & battery blanket were detected. Honda replaced fuel lines, pipe set fuel & applied rodent tape. No vehicle warnings, lamps or messages alerted us to the problem. It was the strong odor of gasoline that warned us of a problem. Cost to vehicle owner to repair: $1568 on a vehicle that was under warranty.

Summary of Complaint

The A/C system both the condenser and compressor failed in my 2018 Honda Civic with 13,000 miles. Honda acknowledges faulty part with their A/C condenser that could cause refrigerant to leak but failed to take responsibility of the compressor. The leak could cause other A/C components to fail such as the compressor, clutch and coil. These failures could further damage the car and cause the car to be unsafe to drive. Honda should take full responsibility of all the parts in their A/C system instead of charging owners $2300+ to fix the compressor.
