FUEL/PROPULSION SYSTEM

3/20/2015 - HENDERSON, NV
BEING MALE AND CAPABLE OF DRIVING STANDARD SHIFT, I DRIVE 2 FOOTED. THIS VEHICLE IS AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH DRIVE BY WIRE FEATURE. LEFT ON BRAKE,RIGHT ON ACCELERATOR. WHEN ACCELERATING FROM A STOP OR A SLOW TO MAKE A LEFT TURN, THE VEHICLE DOES NOT MOVE AS EXPECTED, IT SEEMS TO DELAY COMPETING THE TURN, AND EVEN DOES IT WHEN TRYING TO PASS A VEHICLE ON THE FWY. IT IS AN INTERMITTENT OCCURRENCE. I HAVE TAKEN IT BACK TO THE DEALER AND THEY SAY THEY CAN NOT FIND ANY PROBLEM. I WOULD LIKE TO LEAVE IT WITH THEM FOR ONE WEEK AND HAVE THE MECHANIC DRIVE IT FOR ONE WEEK TO AND FROM WORK. BUT I DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR A RENTAL DURING THE TIME. I WILL DO SO IF THERE IS NO TROUBLE FOUND BY THE REGION SERVICE MANAGER. BUT OTHERWISE I WOULD LIKE THE DEALERSHIP TO PICK UP THE RENTAL. I NOW HAVE HAD IT FOR ABOUT 16 MONTHS AND HAVE HAD TO ADJUST MY DRIVING HABITS TO COMPENSATE FOR THE DELAY IN ORDER TO AVOID A CRASH. OTHER WISE I HAVE HAD GOOD SERVICE FROM THE DEALERSHIP. I NOW HAVE APPROXIMATELY 10, 300 MILES ON THE VEHICLE. THANK YOU.

SUSPENSION

3/18/2015 - HERNDON, VA
I AM WRITING TO EXPRESS CONCERN ABOUT AN ISSUE I RECENTLY HAD WITH MY 2013 HONDA CIVIC AND TO SEE IF THE ISSUE I HAD IS A KNOWN ISSUE WITH HONDA CIVICS. ON 11 FEBRUARY, MY CAR HIT A CURB AND THE HONDA DEALERSHIP, UPON INSPECTING THE CAR, TOLD ME THAT MY FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARM WAS BROKEN, FORCING A REPAIR OF THE CONTROL ARM, STEERING KNUCKLE, FRONT WHEEL BEARING, AND FRONT DAMPER/STRUT. THE DAMAGE ALLEGEDLY CAUSED BY THE CURB SEEMS EXCESSIVE TO THE LEVEL OF IMPACT. I AM AWARE OF PREVIOUS ISSUES WITH CONTROL ARMS IN HONDA CIVICS, WHICH IS THE REASON I AM ASKING IF SIMILAR ISSUES HAVE ARISEN IN MORE RECENT MODELS. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS INCIDENT OR IF THIS IS PART OF A LARGER PROBLEM WITH HONDA CIVICS FOR WHICH THEY SHOULD BE RESPONSIBLE TO FIX. THANK YOU.

SEATS

THE HEAD RESTRAINT IS UNCOMFORTABLE ENOUGH TO CAUSE SEVER NECK PAIN/INJURY FOR ME. TO PROTECT FROM WHIP LASH THE DESIGN IS DONE IN WAY TO CAUSE INJURY TO NECK. THIS IS REALLY BAD, MANY ARE GOING TO END UP IN THERAPY OR ORTHOPEDICS DUE TO POOR DESIGN LIKE ME :-(

ON NUMEROUS OCCASSIONS MY MANUAL TRANSMISSION 2013 HONDA CIVIC HAS ACCELERATED ON ITS OWN IN 2ND AND 3RD GEARS. IT OCCURS MUCH MORE OFTEN IN 3RD GEAR AND HAPPENED TWICE JUST TODAY; IT HAS NEVER DONE THIS IN 1ST, 4TH, OR 5TH GEARS. I DON'T USE CRUISE CONTROL SO, UNLESS THE CRUISE CONTROL IS KICKING IN ON ITS OWN SOMEHOW, THAT IS NOT THE CAUSE. WHEN THE CAR STARTS ACCELERATING ON ITS OWN, I AM UNABLE TO EASILY MOVE THE GEAR SHIFT FROM 2ND OR 3RD INTO NEUTRAL AND HAVE TO EITHER APPLY ALOT OF PRESSURE TO MOVE IT INTO NEUTRAL OR USE THE CLUTCH. BREAKING WILL SOMETIMES STOP THE ACCELERATION BUT NOT ALWAYS AND SOMETIMES EVEN WHEN I USE THE BRAKE, WHEN I TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE BRAKE THE CAR WILL CONTINUE ACCELERATING ON ITS OWN. THIS HAS OCCURRED MOST OFTEN AT SPEEDS BETWEEN 25 AND 35. THE CAR WAS PURCHASED NEW FROM THE DEALER.
