    Default civic prob

    hello experts..
    ok here is the problem..i bought my vti last summer..its manual..was brand new when bought..though being a honda owner for many yrs..this is to be the worst model in terms of quality..anywz the problem or what i think is a problem...is that in order to roll the car in first gear..as in making it move from a stop..the car kind of shakes if the clutch is let gone at around 1500rpm or so..now i know this is basic stuff...but is there a problem with my car...? it doesnt happen when the clutch is popped at around 2000rpm..the honda people have said that this is the way all the civics are...now i dont really know if they are right or not...some people say that its juss me who thinks theres something wrong..engine is in perfect condition..filters r changed on time as well as oil..air pressure is checked frequently..besdies its just done 10,000 km...so..so what do u guys think the possible problem could be ? or like most people say "tumhe wahim parh gaya hai " il surely meet up with all of u guys soon as i am coming back to lahore in a few weeks..n then u can also check it in real life...but till then i would be more than happy if someone could end my inquisitiveness..

    I believe your clutch is shuddering. Or maybe your axles are problematic. WOrst, it could be some mounts or something else is loose. When you roll from a standing start, you are overcoming the inertia of the whole vehicle, and when the clutch engages, the engine, transmission, wheels jerk.

    If something is not bolted on properly, it could be shaking and giving you this feeling.

    My suggestion is, go to some other honda dealer in Lahore and ask them to tighten all under the hood and under the car, and also have the clutch and axles checked.

    Cheers.
    If you haven't seen the future, you're not going fast enough!

    get the clutch checked.
    It happened when I changed the clutch of my 98 civic, and i'm not technically sound on this but according to the the mechanic its combination with the flywheel was not correct and it has to be fixed by the "Khairatiya". I havent got it fixed yet, but if its the same problem you should as it kills the clutch plate.

    That's NOT how all civics are, your clutch plate is faulty. Take it back to the dealer you bought from and demand that they replace it under warranty.

    easiest thing to clear your confusion,
    try to find someone with the same car as yours. take a drive and compare.

    With Honda Atlas, anything's possible ;-)

    Problems with new cars are there. My City had a problem with it's accelerator, my Civic had a problem with its break peddle. Luckily my other VTIs didn't have any problem from day one.

    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    Then check for the clutch plate and pressure plate (as majority has also suggested). Also do check for the engine and grearbox foundations for any problem.

    the warranty is 1 year or 20000 km, whichever comes first. and yes it seems like the clutch plate / pressure plate where the problems lies. a lot of parts in corollas and hondas come from china so anything is possible (check windshield).
    Speed thrills and kills better than anything else.
