Honda Civic Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Honda Civic based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
On vehicles that have a sunroof, squeaking can occur. Special anti squeak tape should be applied to stop the noise.
Trailing arm bushings can crack and break resulting in a clunking or rattle noise over bumps. Cracked bushings will require replacement.
The air cleaner case is prone to cracking. This can make it difficult to remove the screws securing the cover, making it difficult to replace the air filter. Replacing the case is often necessary to address this issue.
Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car, usually over the head of the driver or passengers head when turning a corner. Cleaning the drains will fix this problem.
On certain models the ignition switch binds. The ignition switch needs to be replaced to repair this issue.
On certain models the upper windshield molding vibrates at a higher speed causing a noise. Back filling the molding with silicone sealer will eliminate the noise.
CVT models (HX and GX) have a shudder, judder, and noise due to a worn start clutch in the transmission. Replacing the start clutch is needed to address this issue.
