    Default Problems in Honda Civic 1.8

    This thread is only about problems in Civic 1.8. No irrelevant replies are allowed here. And only owners are allowed to reply here. Just like problems in 09 corolla and 09 city is running this is only related to civic 1.8 (from its introduction in Pakistan).
    It is impossible to please everybody.

    I have started facing strange noises from the passenger side A/C vent, like if some paper is stuck there. I have thoroughly inspected but couldn't find the source.

    Also I feel the paint quality on the civic is pathetic when compared to corollas. I have been using microfiber cloth and waxing all my cars with mothers wax every 2 weeks. Civic is already full of swirls while not a single swirl exists on either of my corollas.

    the swirl thing is because of the color. corolla being silver and civic being black

    I agree with you mani. Got a black civic prosmatec from honda city sales two days back. The paint quality is pathetic, some pieces don't match. Also the build quality of the civic has gone down. The rear door handles of my car were not painted, and a chirping sound is coming from the passenger side a/c vent. I did check other cars also and one car's side mirror was not painted, another car's a/c control's were not working. I was not expecting this from honda..

    Thanks for your reply.

    When I say the wires are visible I mean in the boot "dhakan" when you open the boot and look at the boot lid from the inside. In the previous city there is a sort of carpet lining even on the inside of the boot lid which provides sound insulation.

    Please look at the attached pics of the 8th gen civic in America to get an idea of what talking about.

    Does your civic have that cabin air filter or not? I want to know if mine is missing or is it simply not supplied with the civic in Pakistan.

    I also had a silver 02 civic and 04/05/06 corollas. No swirls on civic but swirls on corollas, which shows that back then, civic had better paint quality but reverse is true now. I agree black is more prone to swirls but you cant imagine how much I cherish my civic. It has done only 3000km till now and I keep it under cover most of the time. Altis on the other hand has done 10,000km and is used on the highways. Civic is washed every week from the pump and polished very carefully using proper wax applicators and microfiber cloth etc.

    @sardarsaeed

    I am experiencing the same chirping sound. Do let me know if you find any solution. Its annoying

    Has anyone had a problem with the civics cat converter? I had to get it removed because of a huge decline in the cars performance.

    If I have understood correctly from the posts in this thread, I think:-

    1. Overall, the standard of Civic has gone down. Despite the money they take, Atlas Honda is dealing us in 'pure Pakistani' way.
    2. Previously, the boot lid used to be covered with carpeting etc, to hide all wires and bulbs, but new Civic (2008 - 2010) does not have this.
    3. 2nd gear in manual civic has a genuine 'sticky' problem.
    4. Visibility on drivers left and right is affected by the design of the car pillars.
    5. Seats are harder than these should be.
    6. Stock tyres are of poor grade as compared to the price of the car.
    7. At an average scale, overall attitude and professional competence of Honda 3S dealership mechanics and staff is not up to the desired standard, all over the country.


    I suppose these are the common observations that I could sum up here. Remaining points are in essence individual in nature and does not pertain to over all Civic 8th gen.

    Hope someone conveys these observation to the higher administration of Honda in Pakistan and Japan, so that they may come some improvement in all the above mentioned aspects.

    Thanks a lot everyone for great contribution and sharing of wisdom.

    like others, i also have chirping sound coming from the passenger side air vent, feels like something is lose in there.

    if u want to add more problems, almost ALL early models of civic 8th gens suffered from sticky front windows ( the rails were/are misaligned )

    Well i myself was facing problems in my civic 8g but fixed everything under warranty - like changing of both front wheel bearings & Idle pulley tensioner replacement & now alhamdulillah quite satisfied & loving my ride.

    talking about the built quality - i have compared build qualities of new GLI with civic and trust me GLI is a joke when compare it with Civic - it looks like Toyota is manufacturing cars in Gizri

    I agree Honda has also decreased its built quality but on comparative basis i feel its much better than rolla.

    Problem was with bleeding after radiator change. Honda Faisalabad missed it for som er eason. Bleeding is a must whenever water drains from cooling system in 8th Generation Honda.

    About my hate for this car. I have never been a fan of hondas. found them to be too complex and overengineered at places where they shouldnt be. From a practical aspect also, never found it very roomy or comfortable. suspension is also a question mark. In the end it is very different from our conventional cars making it a love or hate type of car. nothing moderate about it.

    1) Standard? I dont know cuz i brought my civic 07 after selling a Vti 05 so actually it was an upgrade of my standard.

    2) Mine boot is also nanga! Just checked it and took pics.

    3) I have a Prosmatec so no problem.

    4) One gets used to of it.

    5) Yeah seats are hard and my back starts to hurt especially while going to Islamabad from Lahore.

    6) I got Bridgestone tyres which were quite good or you can call reasonable. Now i have dB decible which are quite good.

    7) Exactly, Honda 3S dealers are acting totally as non-professionals. The problems they diaganose are hardly correct.

    And let me add the problems which i faced,

    8) The driver side automatic mirror malfunctions. Taking care of it through WD-40.

    9) The bearings and mountings of 8G Civic are quite weak. i replaced them at 40000km on the cost of Rs 20000.

    10) The absense of AUX is very annoying! Like 5 rupay ki taar bhi nahin day saktay!

    Just checked the boot, and now i realised how ugly is it looking after seeing that American Civic.

    Im sorry i thought you guys are talking about the wires and bolts which go through the side of the boot. But here is a different story.

    Go for dB decible. And make sure you keep 205 profile. Your car will look very nice with it and will get grippy.

    Default Breaking News!

    @airomerix

    SEE SEE SEE i was right about the nanga boot!
    i was so confused when you said your civic's boot had NO visible wires and lights!
    Im so relieved that honda cheated you just as much as they cheated me

    @all whose car makes a chirping sound
    my car made the same sound from the dash on the passenger's side.

    but after 9.5 months of owning a brand new Civic and 16 visits to the Honda Dealership, I've finally found out what the problem behind the interior chirping is..and i absolutely COULD not believe it!
    it turned out to be negligence on the part of the Atlas Honda factory during the car's assembly. After my cars fault was diagnosed..i was informed by the SINGLE AUTHORIZED mechanic in the WHOLE of Honda Dealership on Sharae Faisal that he has fixed 3 cars with the same problem in the previous couple of months.
    Anyway...the problem is that the dash sort of hangs on a cross member (circular cross section steel pipe) that connects both sides of the front pillars base (A-pillars) to keep the chassis rigid and also to act as a brace for the dash.
    the problem in my civic was that the plastic dash was not properly bolted onto the steel pipe. in some cases the bolt WASN'T even present!
    so the dash flexed and made a chirping sound when it hit the steel pipe and other plastic bits when the car hit even a tiny bump.
    i know this because after SO MANY visits i was tired of this bloody problem and went to the station manager on the 2nd day and requested to be present with the car while the car is taken for "trial runs" and then repaired (dismantled and put together again like humpty dumpty)
    i was not allowed to take pics inside the workshop but i sat on a chair for 5 hours for 2 days to diagnose and fix the problem in front of my eyes.

    when the interior was assembled again the dash was not fit properly and had scratches all over it
    and my steering is rotated.. so to go straight it has to be turned slightly!
    will have to go AGAIN to fix it.

    The 2nd problem was a metallic sound coming from the boot. it was also fixed as i asked the car to be raised and EVERY nut and bolt be tightened underneath the car and in the boot.
    the second 9.5 month long problem was mysteriously gone!
    Bloody assemblers at Atlas Honda.

    Oh and another thing..my car was i the workshop for 4 days total. on the first day they lied to me and told me the problem is fixed and returned the car. i found out it was driven 32km (for trials apparently ...i mean are you f***ing kidding me?)

    plus i was missing 15l of fuel !!!

    i was given a VERY LAME excuse that people cant steal fuel from the Civic..as it is theft proof!
    15l of fuel cost me Rs1050 but i was given only one free service as compensation which only costs Rs550.

    this is the standard of Atlas Honda Pakistan ladies and gentlemen.
    Farooq.
