Summary of Complaint

RE: [XXX] BEFORE DESCRIPTION LET ME SAY THAT THIS VEHICLE IS MY THIRD HONDA HYBRID CAR. THE FIRST, AN EARLY INSIGHT WAS ENTIRELY SATISFACTORY. I WISH I STILL OWNED IT. IT IS TRUE THAT IT DID GO THROUGH THE IMA BATTERY RECONDITIONING CYCLE OCCASIONALLY, BUT NOT VERY OFTEN THE SECOND, A CIVIC HYBRID, WAS ALSO QUITE SATISFACTORY. THE THIRD, A 2007 CIVIC HYBRID, IS THE PROBLEM. I WISH I HAD NEVER TRADED UP (DOWN?) TO IT. AG AN EARLY POINT THE COMPUTER INDICATED AN IMA PROBLEM, AND THE SERVICE PEOPLE TOLD ME THAT THE COMPUTER INDICATED THAT THE IMA BATTERY WAS MALFUNCTIONING. YOUR EXPERTS REQUIRED THAT THE COMPUTER BE REPROGRAMMED SO THAT THE COMPUTER NO LONGER REPORTED THE IMA PROBLEM. I CONTINUE TO BE TOLD THAT SINCE THE COMPUTER SAYS THERE IS NOTHING WRONG THERE IS NOTING THAT THE DEALER CAN DO TO FIX THE PROBLEM. AT PRESENT ABOUT FIVE OR SIX TIMES EACH DAY THE INDICATOR FOR IMA CHARGE DROPS TO 2 AND THE IMA STOPS PROVIDING ASSIST WAITING FOR THE BATTERY TO RECHARGE. AFTER A WHILE THE CHARGE INDICATOR JUMPS UP TO FULL, USUALLY WITH DO PARTIAL FULL STEPS, AND THEN THE BOOST RESUMES WORK. HOWEVER IF I CLIMB ANY REASONABLE HILL ON THE HIGHWAY THE CHARGE INDICATOR DROPS TO THE POINT WHERE THERE IS NO BOOST. IT IS QUITE CLEAR THAT THE BATTERY WILL NOT HOLD A PROPER CHARGE. IT IS INCREASINGLY BECOMING A SAFETY PROBLEM SINCE WHEN STARTING UP IN TRAFFIC I CANNOT RELY ON THE IMA BOOST TO BE THERE WHEN NEEDED. QUITE HONESTLY, I THINK IT IS LONG PAST TIME FOR YOU TO HONOR THE WARRANTY AND REPLACE THE IMA BATTERY. IF THERE IS SOME OTHER CAUSE FOR THE PROBLEM, THEN IT NEEDS FIXING. INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *TR

Summary of Complaint

HONDA CIVIC HYBRID IMA NO ASSIST OR LACK OF ASSIST AND MILEAGE REDUCTION AFTER IMA SOFTWARE RECALL UPDATE. I HAD NO ISSUES PRIOR TO THE IMA RECALL SOFTWARE UPDATE PERFORMED AT THE DEALER. THE CAR SEEMS TO NOW USE LESS ELECTRIC MOTOR POWER TO ACCELERATE OR TO GO UP HILLS. THIS CAN BECOME DANGEROUS IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS. ALSO THE CAR HAS SEEN A DECREASE IN FUEL ECONOMY OF 16% CITY AND 24% HIGHWAY. CONTACTED 2 DIFFERENT HONDA DEALERSHIPS AND THEY BOTH SAID SOME PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME ISSUES BUT HONDA DOES NOT HAVE A SOLUTION FOR THEM. CALLED HONDA MOTOR CORP. DIRECTLY TO TRY TO GET WARRANTY FIX OR AT LEAST FOR THEM TO UNINSTALL THE IMA SW UPDATE AND THEY SAID THEY CANNOT DO THAT. THEY WILL NOT REPLACE MY BATTERY WHICH IS STILL UNDER THE 8 YEAR WARRANTY OR RESOLVE MY SW UPDATE ISSUES. IT SEEMS WITH SO MANY PEOPLE HAVING AN ISSUE SOMEONE LIKE THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD STEP IN AND FORCE HONDA TO RECTIFY THE ISSUES FOR FREE RATHER THAN HAVING PEOPLE WASTE THEIR TIME GOING TO SMALL CLAIMS COURT OR FILING A CLASS ACTION SUIT. *TR

Summary of Complaint

2007 HONDA CIVIC HYBRID LOST ELECTRIC MOTOR ASSIST POWER IN MAY 2010 WHEN I WAS DRIVING UP A HILL IN DOWNTOWN SEATTLE TRAFFIC. TOOK IT TO HONDA DEALER, WHO CONFIRMED LOW POWER ASSIST AND (WITHOUT CONFERRING WITH ME) REPROGRAMMED THE POWER ASSIST SOFTWARE AND PRONOUNCED IT FIXED. ONE OR TWO DAYS AFTER THIS SERVICE CALL, I AGAIN NOTICED WEAK ELECTRIC MOTOR ASSIST ON ANOTHER HILL IN DOWNTOWN TRAFFIC. TOOK THE CAR TO HONDA AGAIN, AND THEY CONFIRMED THAT THEY COULD REPLICATE THE ANEMIC POWER CONDITION, BUT SAID THAT HONDA USA SAYS THE VEHICLE IS OPERATING AS INTENDED WITH THE COMPUTER SOFTWARE UPDATE, AND THAT THERE IS NO MORE TO BE DONE. I SAID THAT I HAD LOST CONFIDENCE IN THE AUTOMOBILE, SINCE I CONSIDER IT A DRIVING HAZARD NOT TO BE ABLE TO ACCELERATE ADEQUATELY IN SOME DRIVING CONDITIONS. I SAID THAT I WANTED HONDA TO BUY BACK THE CAR, BUT THE DEALER SERVICE MANAGER SAID THAT HONDA WOULDN'T DO THAT. I HAVE PURCHASED ANOTHER CAR, BUT STILL OWN THE HONDA CIVIC HYBRID; I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT, SINCE I DON'T FEEL GOOD OFFERING IT TO ANYONE OTHER THAN HONDA FOR SALE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

I PURCHASED A 2007 HONDA CIVIC HYBRID IN SEPTEMBER OF 2007. I FOLLOW REGULAR MAINTENANCE SCHEDULES AS RECOMMENDED BY MY DEALER. AS OF 8-18-2008, MY VEHICLE HAD OVER 12000 MILES ON IT. THE DAY PRIOR TO A REGULARLY SCHEDULED OIL CHANGE, TIRE ROTATION AND MISC. INSPECTION, I ENCOUNTERED A FLAT TIRE. UPON INSPECTION OF THE FLAT TIRE AND OTHER REAR TIRE, IT WAS NOTED THAT BOTH REAR TIRES WERE COMPLETELY BALD. BOTH TIRES WERE REPLACED THAT SAME DAY. ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, I TOOK MY CAR TO MY SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT AT THE HONDA DEALER. I EXPRESSED MY CONCERN THAT I FELT THERE WAS A PROBLEM THAT LED TO PREMATURE WEAR ON THE REAR TIRES AND THAT I ALSO WANTED TO BE REIMBURSED FOR THE COST OF THE NEW TIRES. IN MY CONVERSATION WITH THE SERVICE MANAGER, I WAS TOLD THAT THEY SUSPECTED THE PROBLEM WAS DUE TO A "CONTROL ARM" ISSUE AND HE TOLD ME THAT THEY HAVE SEEN THIS ISSUE MANY TIMES BEGINNING WITH THE 2006 MODEL. ULTIMATELY, THEY REPLACED/ REPAIRED THE CONTROL ARM AT NO CHARGE, PHOTOGRAPHED THE TIRES, RETAINED THE DAMAGED TIRES AND OFFERED TO ATTEMPT TO SECURE A REFUND TO COVER THE COST OF NEW TIRES. I EXPRESSED MY STRONG OPINION THAT HONDA SHOULD HAVE MADE THIS POTENTIAL PROBLEM AWARE TO ALL HONDA CUSTOMERS. I BELIEVE IT IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE AND I FEEL FORTUNATE THAT MY FAMILY AND I WERE NOT INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT DUE TO RAPID WEAR OF THE TIRES. AFTER THIS EXPERIENCE, I DID SOME INTERNET RESEARCH AND WAS ASTOUNDED TO READ OF MANY INCIDENTS THAT WERE NEARLY IDENTICAL TO MINE. IT LOOKS AS THOUGH THIS ISSUE IS VERY COMMON TO THE HONDA CIVIC AND MANY PEOPLE HAVE THE SAME COMPLAINTS. THIS ISSUE NEEDS IMMEDIATE ATTENTION AND I AM CONCERNED ABOUT THE SAFETY OF ALL INDIVIDUALS RIDING/DRIVING IN THESE VEHICLES. I AM CONSIDERING SELLING MY CIVIC HYBRID. I WILL CONTINUE TO TRY TO BRING ATTENTION TO THIS ISSUE. *TR

Summary of Complaint

HONDA HAS PRODUCED FAULTY ENGINE BLOCKS ON CIVIC MODELS FROM 2006-2009 THAT TEND TO CRACK. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AS IT CAN CAUSE THE CAR TO STALL ON A HIGHWAY AND LEAD TO AN ACCIDENT. HONDA EXTENDED THEIR WARRANTY FROM 7 TO 10 YEARS INSTEAD OF ISSUING A RECALL EVEN THOUGH THEY KNOW THEY SOLD A FAULTY PRODUCT. ON TUESDAY, OCT 27TH 2020, DRIVING HOME FROM WORK THE CAR TEMPERATURE GAUGE MAXED OUT AND SHAKING WAS FELT AS IF THE CAR WAS GOING TO STALL. LUCKILY, THIS OCCURRED COMING OFF THE HIGHWAY AND WHILE DRIVING ON CITY STREETS AND NEAR MY RESIDENCE AND NOT WHILE ON THE HIGHWAY WHERE THE CAR COULD HAVE STALLED AND CAUSED A DANGEROUS SITUATION. THE VEHICLE WAS TAKEN TO HONDA SERVICE CENTER THE FOLLOWING DAY FOR A DIAGNOSTIC CHECK AND IT WAS DETERMINED THAT THE ENGINE BLOCK HAD CRACKED. THE ENGINE CRACKING WAS THE REASON THE CARS WARRANTY WAS EXTENDED TO 10 YEARS BUT THE EXTENSION OF THE WARRANTY TO MY VEHICLE HAS EXPIRED. HONDA HAS QUOTED ME $6,395.40 TO REPLACE A KNOWN FAULTY ENGINE BLOCK. I BELIEVE A FAULTY ENGINE BLOCK CREATES AN UNSAFE CONDITION TO ALL DRIVERS AND SHOULD BE REPLACED BY HONDA BEFORE SOMEONE GETS HURT.

THE CAR STOPPED, BUT STILL ROLLING I PULLED INTO A PARKING LOT. I TRIED TO OPEN THE DOOR, BUT I COULDN'T. THE LOCKS WOULD NOT MOVE, ON EITHER DOOR. NOT MANUALLY. I WAS TRAPPED INSIDE. THANK GOODNESS THE CAR DIDN'T START A FIRE, BECAUSE I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO GET OUT. NOT BY OPENING THE DOORS MANUALLY. THE METAL POLE THAT HOLDS THE HOOD UP CAME LOOSE SOMEHOW AND HIT THE BATTERY, WHICH MADE A SHORT AND SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN. REGARDLESS, THE CAR SHOULD UNLOCK MANUALLY IF THE POWER LOCKS DON'T WORK. I COULDN'T UNLOCK FROM INSIDE BY PULLING THE HANDLE OR THE LOCKS WOULD NOT MOVE/OPEN.

Summary of Complaint

MY AUNT, PURCHASED THIS CAR IN 2007. SHE DIED IN 2015 AND OUR MOTHER PURCHASED THE CAR FROM THE ESTATE. AFTER THE PURCHASE WE SAW THE RE-CALL AND 10 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY ON THE CAR BECAUSE OF "ENGINE BLOCK CRACKING". WE TOOK THE CAR TO A DEALER WHO SAID THAT SINCE THERE WAS NO COOLANT LEAKING, THERE WAS NO CRACK IN THE BLOCK AND HE COULD NOT FIX A CAR THAT WAS NOT IN NEED OF REPAIR. THE CARE HAD 70,000 MILES ON IT AT THE TIME. MY MOM DIED THIS FEBRUARY AND WE AGAIN PURCHASED THE CAR FROM THE ESTATE. IT HAD 75,000 MILES ON IT. LAST WEEK, THE ENGINE BLOCK STARTED LEAKING AND IT WAS DIAGNOSED WITH AN ENGINE BLOCK CRACK, AND THAT THERE WAS NOTHING WE COULD DO ABOUT IT BECAUSE IT HAD EXCEEDED THE 10 YEAR WARRANTY, EVEN THOUGH THE CAR ONLY HAD 79,000 MILES ON IT. HONDA SHOULD HAVE MADE A 10 YEAR AND 100,000 MILE EXTENSION. WE WERE PENALIZED BECAUSE WE ARE LOW MILEAGE DRIVERS. THIS IS VERY UNFAIR AND SHOULD CONSIDER A CLASS ACTION LAW SUITE. ANY ADVICE OR GUIDANCE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANK YOU, [XXX]. INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6). *CC *TR

MY HONDA CIVIC HAS COMPLETELY OVERHEATED THREE TIMES TO THE POINT OF NEEDING TO REPLACE THE HEAD GASKET, WATER PUMP, RADIATOR AND COILS. ONCE WAS IN 2014, AGAIN IN 2018 AND NOW IN 2020. IT IS NOW DISCOVERED THE CAUSE OF ALL THESE OVER HEATING PROBLEMS OVER THE YEARS WAS DUE TO A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK WHICH THERE WAS A 10 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY FOR THIS ISSUE. I TOOK MY CIVIC INTO BRANDON HONDA IN FLORIDA ON MARCH 5TH, 2016 AND NOTHING WAS SAID OR DONE RELATING TO THE ISSUE OF THE CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK WHICH HONDA HAD BEEN FULLY AWARE OF SINCE AT LEAST 2014 WHERE IT WAS STATED ON CONSUMER REPORTS. THE VEHICLE WAS IN MOTION TWICE, ONCE ON A HIGHWAY AND IT WAS DUE TO THE ENGINE OVER HEATING EVERY TIME; BOTH SITUATIONS PUT MYSELF AND VEHICLE IN DANGER. I MAINTAINED MY RADIATOR AS WELL AS WATER PUMP AND HAVE HAD THEM REPLACED EACH TIME SO CLEARLY THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM WAS THE CRACK IN THE ENGINE BLOCK.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE HAS DEVELOPED A COOLANT LEAK DUE TO A CRACKED ENGINE BLOCK. THIS VEHICLE CAN NO LONGER BE DRIVEN AND WHILE IT IS IN OTHERWISE EXCELLENT CONDITION, REPAIRS ARE ECONOMICALLY UNFEASIBLE. THIS IS A 2007 HONDA CIVIC EX WITH THE R18 ENGINE. IT HAS A CLEAN TITLE AND I AM THE FIRST AND ONLY OWNER. THERE HAVE BEEN A SIGNIFICANT NUMBER OF SIMILAR FAILURES IN THE 2007, 2008 AND 2009 MODEL YEAR HONDA CIVICS WITH THIS ENGINE DUE TO BAD METALLURGY AND WEAK CASTING DURING THE MANUFACTURING PROCESS. HONDA KNOWS THAT THESE ARE DEFECTIVE ENGINES AS THEY CREATED TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 10-048 IN RESPONSE TO THESE FAILURES. THEY DID NOT HOWEVER ISSUE A RECALL. I BELIEVE THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE, BECAUSE THIS FAILURE COULD OCCUR IN HIGHWAY DRIVING CAUSING THE ENGINE TO OVERHEAT AND SEIZE AND THE DRIVER COULD THEREFORE POTENTIALLY BE UNABLE TO LEAVE THE ACTIVE TRAFFIC LANES. REGARDLESS, EVEN IF THE DRIVER COULD MAKE IT TO THE SHOULDER, THAT IS NOT A SAFE ENVIRONMENT. I NOTICED THIS PROBLEM WHEN THE VEHICLE WAS IN MOTION JUST AFTER EXITING THE HIGHWAY. THERE ARE MANY EXAMPLES OF SIMILAR FAILURES ON VARIOUS OWNER GROUP WEBSITES.

Summary of Complaint

AS MANY OF THE OTHER PEOPLE, I HAVE A LEAKING COOLANT CRACK IN THE ENGINE BLOCK DUE TO POOR CASTING, THUS RESULTING IN THE CAR TO DANGEROUSLY OVERHEAT. I HAVE VISITED A LOCAL MECHANIC AND THEY HAVE CONFIRMED IT IS A FAULTY PROBLEM AMONG MANY CIVICS MANUFACTURED THAT GENERATION. THE PROBLEM OTHERS AND I ENCOUNTER IS THE FACT THAT THE CAR EXCEEDS THE 10 YEAR WARRANTY. TO MAKE THE DILEMA WORSE, THE HONDA MANUFACTURING COMPANY DOES GUARANTEE FULL RECOMPENSATION. THEY SUGGEST FOR ONE TO GO IN FOR $100 + INSPECTION THAT DOES NOT COMPLETELY GUARANTEE AID. THE PROBLEMS I ENCOUNTER INCLUDE: AN ONGOING LEAK OF DANGEROUS COOLANT LIQUIDS WHILE DRIVING/PARKED, EXCESSIVE OVERHEATING OF THE ENGINE WHILE DRIVING, AND THE TEAR DOWN OF PARTS(COILS, CYLINDERS, AND SPARK PLUGS) DUE TO UNSTABLE/WORRISOME HIGH TEMPERATURES. I HAVE OVERLOOKED MANY FORUMS AND THREADS OF UNHAPPY HONDA DRIVERS THAT ARE ENCOUNTERING THE SAME PROBLEM AS I HAVE. THE NUMBER OF COMPLAINTS FOUND HERE HAVE INCREASED SIGNIFICANTLY IN RECENT DAYS. I PLEAD/BEG FOR YOUR ASSISTANCE! MANY OF THE PEOPLE ENCOUNTERING THIS PROBLEM ARE OF LOW INCOME, FEW OF WHICH CANNOT AFFORD REPAIR COSTS AND/OR PURCHASING A NEW VEHICLE; WE PURCHASE THESE TYPE OF CARS FOR THEIR SO-CALLED RELIABILITY. IN MY CASE, I AM A UNIVERSITY STUDENT WHO VITALLY NEEDS A SOURCE OF TRANSPORTATION. ONE MAY ARGUE THAT PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION IS THE SOLUTION, BUT THAT LIMITS MY POSSIBILITY FRONTIER AS I ALSO HAVE TO WORK; PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION COSTS TIME ONE COULD BE USING ELSEWHERE. TRUTH OF THE MATTER IS THAT THIS DEFECT IS POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS TO THE PUBLIC. THERE IS HIGH CORRELATION BETWEEN ENGINE OVERHEATING AND ACCIDENTS THAT ARE WORRISOME.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING ON A HIGHWAY THE CAR STARTED FUMING WITH WHITE SMOKE AND IT GOT INSIDE THE CABIN OF THE CAR AND THE TEMPERATURE GAUGE WAS AT 100% ALL OF A SUDDEN AND HAD TO PULL THE CAR TO THE SHOULDER. IT IS A KNOWN MANUFACTURING DEFECT AND HONDA HAS A TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN 10-048. BUT I WAS NEVER MAILED ABOUT THE PROBLEM AND WHEN CONTACTED HONDA MENTIONED THEY DO NOT HAVE TO UPDATE ME EVEN THOUGH IT IS A KNOWN PROBLEM. HONDA REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN REALLY RUDE AND DID NOT REPLY OR RAKE MY CALL FOR MORE THAN 10 DAYS TO REPLY ABOUT MY CASE. INSTEAD WHEN SHE CALLED SHE MENTIONED THAT ITS NOT THEIR PROBLEM AND THEY WILL NOT COVER IT.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS DRIVING AND MY CAR SUDDENLY STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF A VERY BUSY ROAD, THE VEHICLE STARTED SMOKING WHILE I WAS INSIDE, IT WAS SO SCARY. I'M LUCKY THAT I'M ALIVE. THE VEHICLE WAS DIAGNOSED BY HONDA WITH A CRACKED ENGINE. HONDA WAS FULLY AWARE OF THE ENGINE BLOCK LEAK ISSUE BACK IN 2013. INSTEAD OF OFFERING A TOTAL RECALL TO FIX THE ISSUE FOR ALL THE RUNNING CIVICS, THEY SIMPLY OFFERED A 10 YEAR WARRANTY, IN CASE THE PROBLEM SURFACES. THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AND AUTHORITIES SHOULD INVESTIGATE HOW HONDA IS HANDLING THESE COMPLAINTS. THEY REFUSED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY AND STAND BY THEIR CUSTOMERS.
