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.

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.

Summary of Complaint

2018 Honda Civic racking pinning steering needs replaced at 44,000 miles. My steering gets stuck turning right to left and worsens at higher speed. Honda dealership states its not under recall and will cost me $3,587.85. The manufacturing power steering rack costs $ 2,455.28. I have researched the internet and numerous consumers have complained and needed racking pinning replaced prior to warranty expiration and thereafter. This is definitely a safety concern. I cant believe that Honda Manufacturer has not recalled this defect. Other consumers complaints found for the same defect: #2 I just got this car in November 2020 (I-??m the second owner and it was originally a lease). It only has 27,400 miles on it. Within the past week I-??ve started feeling and hearing a clicking and jerking in the steering wheel when I turn/correct instead of a smooth transition. This starts 20 to 30 minutes after I first start driving, and it-??s worse at highway speeds (>50 mph) and gets worse the longer I drive the car. I brought the car to the dealership today and was told that the power steering rack is failing and needs to be replaced. No warning lights or messages appeared at any time. Thankfully I caught the problem early, but it made it difficult to steer the car and keep it straight on the highway, and had the problem progressed, my and others' safety could have been in grave danger. It is unacceptable for the power steering to fail and require major, costly repair in a vehicle that is only 3 years old. #3So.. i have this Honda Civic 2018.. just under 25K Mileage.. for past few weeks the steering is getting stiff and not responding .. it gives a sound of TAK TAK TAK..like jerks when the steering is turned fully either side .. no matter in reverse or in Drive Mode.. i went to Honda Centre and told them and they immediately started making video of steering and taking pics of engine no and chasis.. and didnt even ask me a single question.. and said that your car is in warranty..

Summary of Complaint

Car AC is not working, due to a high number of issue reported to Honda on honda civic AC unit, they extended the warranty of the AC condenser for 10 years. I see many people have this issue so instead of warranty extension, they should go for AC condenser or complete AC unit recall. my car is 3 years and 3 months old and the millage is around 18500 miles, now honda is saying give the car for inspection, if the issue is related to AC condenser it will be free of cost or I need to pay initial inspection fees of 320 dollars and additional for part replacement. AC condenser is the heart of AC unit due to improperly built of AC condenser it can damage other parts also. so ideally Honda should recall and do it free of cost. Please help me here I am not getting any proper help from the honda of America customer care of the dealership.

The AC Compressor failed while I was driving from LA to San Jose, on the hottest day of the year. It is available for inspection, and tomorrow will be formally diagnosed at a Honda Service Center. It has already been diagnosed by my regular repair shop, Michael & Co. in San Jose. Due to the 109* heat and my pets being with me in the car, we had to pull over and take shelter at a motel for 12 hours - and even then, my pets were showing signs of heat exhaustion. There was zero warning; no lamps, sounds, or other alerts. It just... died.

Summary of Complaint

On 05.02.2021, I was driving our CAR in Philadelphia, and stopped at red light. When I started driving in heavy stop and go traffic knowing I had to stop in 200 ft. brakes failed, brake pedal went to the floor and the car accelerated, emergency brakes didn’t start and Forward collision warning didn’t work. I hit the car in front of me. My car was totaled, more cars were damaged. Two months before this accident I was driving on a crowded Philadelphia city street and when I put on the brakes exactly the same thing happened - brakes failed, car accelerated, emergency braking didn’t function, Forward collision warning didn’t work. I drove the car to the edge of sidewalk to stop it. Nobody got hurt but the front of the car was damaged. I took it to Honda to investigate the brake failure. First the dealer said they checked and there was nothing wrong we can take to car. Later Honda America told the dealer, the car is not safe and we can’t get it back until they send an expert to check. After the expert, service people at the dealership said the car was OK. The problem could be an unsecured floor mat that interfered with the brakes and that is why brakes failed. We asked why the emergence brakes didn’t work. They said “when you pushed the brake the computer has a message that brakes are pushed and emergency brakes don’t come on functioning”. We removed the moveable floor mat and asked for the expert report. They told me he didn’t write a report. Later when I confronted Honda America they said there was a written report but I did not have the right to see it. Honda America also refused any responsibility saying it was up to the insurance company and they were closing the report.I believe Honda America is not acting responsibly. HONDA should share the expert report after the first accident, should investigate what went wrong during the accident, should try to figure out why the brakes failed twice in the same way in a two months period but operated fine in between.

A PREVIOUS COMPLAINT TO I SUBMITTED ABOUT THIS VEHICLE WAS RELEVANT TO THE REAR WINDSHIELD SHATTERING ON ITS OWN. UPDATE - BACKED BY INSURANCE CLAIMS, IT HAS HAPPENED 3 TIMES. ONCE FOR EVERY YEAR THE CAR HAS BEEN OWNED. THIS ISSUE SIGNIFICANTLY NEEDS ATTENTION. THIS COMPLAINT IS ABOUT AN AC UNIT. THEY MANUFACTURED A CAR WITH DEFECTIVE PARTS. LISTED AS A RECALL BY ALL INFORMATION I SEEN, I WAS OBLIGATED TO PAY A LITTLE OVER $300 FOR THE "RECALL". ONCE FINALLY GETTING A CHANCE TAKING IT BACK IN BECAUSE THE ISSUE WAS NEVER FIXED, THEY RUN TESTS, AND TELL ME THE COMPRESSOR IS BAD AND IS GOING TO COST $1400, MORE THAN THE $1200 IT WAS THE FIRST TIME. ABOVE ALL, THE BUSINESS PRACTICES IN WHICH THEY ACCOUNT FOR THE RECALLS NEEDS TO BE EVALUATED. THE PORTION OF THE COST OF THE FIRST WORK ON THE AC SYSTEM WAS LABELLED AS "GOODWILL" WHICH IS THE REASON THEY ARE REFUSING TO FIX IT THIS TIME. THEY SAID "GOOD WILL" IS A ONE TIME THING. THIS IS ALSO HOW THEY OBLIGATED ME TO PAY FOR PART OF A RECALLED PART THAT AT THE TIME THEY TOLD ME WAS A "VOLUNTARY RECALL" AND WOULD THEREFORE NOT BE SUBJECT TO THE STANDARD LAWS SURROUNDING RECALLS. HONDA IS GENUINELY UP TO NO GOOD AND NEEDS TO BE THOROUGHLY EVALUATED.

Summary of Complaint

MY CAR MAKES LIKE A CLICKING NOISE INTERMITTENTLY WHILE ACCELERATING. WHEN IT'S MAKING THIS NOISE IT HAS STOPPED ACCELERATING. I HAVE TO RELEASE MY FOOT OFF THE GAS FOR A COUPLE SECONDS THEN WHEN I ACCELERATE, IT IS BACK TO NORMAL.THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN EVERY DAY ANYMORE BUT AT ONE POINT IT WAS HAPPENING PRETTY MUCH AT LEAST ONCE A DAY. I TOOK IT TO THE HONDA DEALERSHIP IN OCTOBER 2020 ND NOVEMBER 2020 AND ASKED THEM TO FIND OUT WHAT'S WRONG. I TOLD THEM IT MAY BE THE FUEL PUMP/SYSTEM OR SOMETHING WITH THE ACCELERATOR, AND PRECEDED TO TELL THEM ABOUT THE NOISE. BOTH TIMES THEY COULD NOT RECREATE THE NOISE AND THEREFORE COULD NOT FIX OR DIAGNOSE THE ISSUE. IT HAPPENS WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STOP, ON A HILL, ACCELERATING QUICKLY, AND SOMETIMES JUST GOOD OLD FASHIONED REGULAR ACCELERATING. IT HAS MADE ME LOSE TRUST IN THE CAR LIKE I COULD BE TURNING OR PASSING SOMEONE AND IT HAPPENS WHEN EVERYONE OND IS CRITICAL. NEEDLESS TO SAY I HAVE BEEN ACCELERATING VERY SLOWLY TO TRY TO LIMIT THE AMOUNT OF TIMES IT HAPPENS BUT IT STILL HAPPENS. CITY STREETS AND HIGHWAYS.

Summary of Complaint

THE A/C EVAPORATOR HAS APPARENTLY STOPPED WORKING. THE CONDENSOR HAD TO BE REPLACED BECAUSE IT WAS NOT MANUFACTURED TO SPECIFICATIONS, AND A RECALL WAS GENERATED. I AM OF THE OPINION THAT THE SAME THING HAS HAPPENED TO THE EVAPORATOR, AS THIS IS A PART THAT SHOULD NOT HAVE FAILED.
