I don't own a 2006 onwards Honda civic but i was just going through some websites and found this horrifying forum with a discussion regarding 2006 onwards Honda civic 1.8 vtec's unstable engine block problem.
Apparently once these motors cross a mileage of 70 - 80k, the blocks on these engine crack open followed by coolant leakage and over heating.
Honda USA is taking care of the affected vehicles free of cost and has extended the warranty of these models to eight years. The owners in the US are being compensated so that the issue is not publicized, otherwise they might have to recall 100 & 1000s of vehicles.
I am just wondering how would the Pakistani population be treated if this issue surfaced in our locally assembled Civics.
