A few Civic causes of Concern !
Hi, The Civic is a beaut no doubt and has lived up to its image as COTY 2007. She handles really well, but I have a few nagging issues which have shaken my faith on Honda. Here goes:
(a) Wipers on my civic make a terrible noise when operated. The car is only 6 months old. Conversations with other civic owners have also revealed this problem with some.
() THe suspension is not entirely worth raving about. The issue as seen will require a more pro active stance by SIEL.
(c) THe air coditioning takes time to be effective.
(d) I have experienced starting problem on atleast 5 occassions. Reasons i have failed to fathom.
Can someone throw light on these issues.

Good to see another member from Goa on board. People on the forum have complained about the noisy wipers and the car bottoming out with a couple of people in the rear. Siel seems yet to come out with a solution.

Mods, is it possible to merge this with one of the Civic threads. There are too many.
Dunno.. the wiper contact with the glass makes the noise I guess. This is not very evident always. Sometimes when there is a very mild drizzle I seem to get the noise. I usually use the spray and the sound after that is muffled after that. If its raining heavily, then the wipers do make a noise when they hit the resting end. But aren't all wipers supposed to make noise (unless its a benz or something) Maybe the opposing wiper technique is to blame?
The air conditioning seems to work fine. Maybe being in Bangalore I can't spot the difference. However what I noticed was if its 24 degrees outside and I set 24 degrees inside, the outside temperature tends to be cooler than the one inside. Maybe its the wind chill.
Suspension has been spoken about enough. Look at the other threads.
Dunno about starting problem. I've had it for nine months and never a problem. Sometimes inside the car if I don't look at the rev meter I don't even know if the car has started or not. :-)

I am told all Honda cars in India, including Accord, bottom out pretty easily.
Only CRV is the exception.
