 Mechanical clip that holds floor mat in place on floor bends and does not hold the floor mat in place. this causes the floor mat to become lodged underneath the clutch, brake and acceleration pedal. car is still under warranty and the dealer fixed this with no question. however, the design of the part tends to be weak and will most likely bend again. *jb
 On april 3, 2008 i took my car to kuhn honda at 3900 west kennedy blvd, tampa, florida 33609. they did a routine oil change, tire rotation, regular maintenance service. four days later my transmission fell out of the car on the highway and i had to have the car towed to the dealer. i had the 105,000 mile warranty and they replaced the transmission. as driving off the lot i notice the transmission would not shift from second gear. next day i took it back to the dealership, they ordered another transmission and put the new one in. that was wednesday april 16th, 2008. i left the dealership around 3:00pm and the traffic was horrible so i drove less than 3 miles to the mall to shop. parked the car at the mall, when inside and was there less than 10 minutes when i was called by the tampa police department telling me my car was on fire in the parking lot and burnt the entire engine to a crisp. the car was melted like a piece of plastic nothing up to the windshield. the dealership claims no responsibility. they have no idea what happened or why! they claim these things happen and they do not know how it could have happened. they did not even apologize! *tr
 The front anti-sway bar on the 2007 honda civic ex is dangerously weak. the slightest side wind while driving on the interstate causes the front end to lift up on one side, causing the car to be unstable. twice i had to swerve on the interstate. both times i thought the car was going to roll down the highway. i feel very lucky to be alive. after replacing the front anti-sway bar, the rear end still had some sway, so i replaced it, too. only eiberg makes replacements so far for 2007 & up for the civic ex. the car is now safe to drive on the interstate and during windy conditions.

 I purchase this vehicle on april 28th 2008. the carfax report had an accident indicator by the second owner, but did not mention what type of accident in terms of moderate, minor, no damage, etc. this report was printed march 24th 2008. when i bought the vehicle the air bag light was on, and when driving; it still stayed on and i told atlanta used car dealership, who told me to take it to the honda dealership to look at it and stated that its probably a glitch. i took the vehicle to the honda car dealership to inspect. the honda dealership found the srs control unit and the passenger side curtain airbag faulty. as stated on my customer invoice from gwinnett place honda, the passenger side air bag appeared to be cut out. carfax did not report that there is a deficient airbag. another incident found is that the accelerator occasionally stick when trying to depress. the honda dealership found there was a carbon build up and it needed service. the dealer replaced the right outer tie rod end, which is on the right passenger where the accident occurred. the dealer stated it was unsafe for me to drive without replacing the tie rod, which was serviced and they also performed a 4 wheel alignment and test drive before i left. my experience has led me to take the initiative to communicate with my attorney general's office, and other consumer protection agencies to report this incident. sincerely, olutomilola aiyetiwa *tr

 Acura is knowingly putting defective transmissions in these cars. when my first trans went out, i was doing 50 mph on lake shore dr. and if i weren't wearing my seatbelt, i would've gone through the windshield. they admitted that they knew all these trans were bad and replaced the 1st one @ 103,000 miles and said they would good will these trans as long as im the original owner. my husband was a master tech. mechanic at acura for 10 yrs. and said they never came out with a good trans. for these cars. they just keep rebuilding them and replacing them when they go out! now my replacement trans is going out @ 30,000 less miles than the 1st and they refuse to replace it without me paying for it! pay for another bad transmission? they wrote on my car work order test drove vehicle found trans slipping - customer advised of trans operation, not recommended to drive vehicle! they put me back on the street with their unsafe transmission. it's not right that they are putting 'accidents waiting to happen' on the streets. is it cheaper for them to pay for peoples deaths than to take all these vehicles off the street? hondas biggest settlement cannot replace somebody's loved one. there has to be justice somewhere. please help save someone's life, thank you.. *tr
