Hello everyone,

I have a 2006 Civic LX Coupe 5spd manual with about 3800 miles on it. I have a few problems with it and was wondering if anyone else has come accross these.

1) There is a bad rattle in the drivers rear speaker area.
2) The fuel release works when it wants to.
3) The wiper sounds like there is a frog stuck in there when they are on.

I love the car, just frusterated with the problems. I have owned a 2001 and 2002 Civic and a 2000 and 2003 VW Jetta and none of those cars have had any problems the whole time I have owned them. Anyway I am sure Honda will fix these issues.

Thanks all and happy Holidays

I don't have those problems that you appear to have. I was quite happy to see my fuel door working in sub-20 degree weather since I thought the latching mechanism may be frozen.

I have the same problem with your wiper but It was only one night. It was weird. I was already thinking of putting a grease but it was gone the following day.

Ok All here is the outcome of all of this.

1) They can't seem to find the rattle in the rear speaker shelf
2) They had to replace teh latch on the fuel door release
3) The rubber bushings on the wipers were worn out and were replaced along with the cowl panel that the seals over the wipers were dried out I guess.
4) The Air Bag lamp was caused from a faulty sensor in the seat.
5) The recall was performed and now my gas pedal wont fall apart.

Hopefully this is the last time any warranty work needs to be done in a long time. I really enjoyed my 2001 Civic and it was one of the first and never any issues. I love this car, but with school and work I don;t need it spending more time in the shop then on the road. LOL Ok I am done venting! Honda still rocks!

But look at it this way, it was all covered!! I always figure a new car will have a few problems along the way but as long as they are taken care of at no cost to me, I can put up with a little (just a little) hassle of having to take it back to the dealer.

CAZZERS:

I have the same problem with my driver side wiper perfect way to descrive it by the way "like a frog is in there", I have an EX coupe with 400 Miles M/T, I was thinking maybe some grease should I take it to the dealer? Did the noise ever come back?


Thanks
