2007 Honda Civic Problems

Airbag Light Due to Failed Occupant Position Sensor

The airbag warning light (SRS) may illuminate due to a defective occupant position sensor. Honda has a recall campaign to replace defective sensors on affected cars.

Possible Shift Control Solenoid Fault

The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the automatic transmission (non CVT) can fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission will have to be replaced. 

Door Lock May be Sticky and Not Work Due to Worn Door Lock Tumblers

Worn door locks (tumblers) can cause the lock not to work. Removing the lock and replacing the worn parts (tumblers) is needed to get the lock working again.

2007 Honda Civic Recalls

Honda Recalls Certain 1998-2007 Civic CNG Vehicles to Add Insulation for the CNG Tank

Honda recalled certain compressed natural gas (CNG) Civic vehicles to add insulation to the rear seat back. In the event of an interior fire, the CNG tank could become compromised due to uneven heating, preventing the pressure relief safety device from functioning as designed. If the tank heats and does not vent the contents, the tank could rupture and explode. Dealers will install the insulation to help protect the tank from uneven heating.

Honda Recalls 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG Models for Possible Brake Light Switch Failure

Honda is recalling 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG models to address a concern about the excessive lubricant used for the telescoping steering column, which may drip onto and damage the brake light switch. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative and the shifter may not release from the "Park" position. Honda will replace the brake light switch and install a protective cover over the brake light switch free of charge.

Honda Recalls Certain 2006-2007 Civic Models for Anti-Lock Brake Sensor Assembly Issue

Honda recalled certain 2006-2007 Civic vehicles for a mounting problem of a sealing O-ring on the rear anti-lock brake system speed sensors. If installed incorrectly, the O-ring will not seal properly, allowing contamination past it and possibly damaging the rear wheel bearings. There is potential for a rear wheel to come off the vehicle if the bearing is worn severely enough. Dealers will inspect the rear anti-lock brake system sensors for proper installation and the rear wheel bearings for damaged parts. Repairs will be made to prevent contamination entry, and to replace any damaged components.

2007 Honda Civic Reviews

This car can take a licking and keep on ticking. I have had my Honda Civic LX for over 4 years and put over 57k on the odometer and this car has never failed me. From 3 years being in northern Vermont to the current year of the toils of the metro NY rush hours this car runs the same way it did when I first bought it new off the lot. My only complains about the car would be that I wish the ro...
Had to replace Engine Mount at 30k miles. It would rattle and make a bad low grumble sound in Reverse. That's a tough $600 to drop on a non Warranty part of the Engine. Anybody else had similar problems?
I find my Honda to be the most expensive car so far to date. I have only owned it for 6 months and am looking to trade it in for a different model and make. It is very cheaply made.
