#4594 of 5207 Window Seal Leaks - both sides - Help!
Jan 09, 2006 (9:45 am)
I recently bought a 1994 Honda Civic Del Sol...LOVE IT...but every time it rains, both seats become wet, ESPECIALLY the drivers seat...where the window meets the roof and front window...there is an area about 2 inches long along the seal (once again on both sides) that at first glance APPEARS sealed, but is not quite perfect...and when it rains, it leaks, BAD...it will visibly drip. Does anyone have any suggestions for a permanent, or at least temporary fix for this...with estimated cost...THANKS A TON!!! And oh yeah...my spedometer will randomly spin 360s, or cease working at all...OOPS!

It is good to find out the brake shoes and I would surmise the brake drums will last 100,000 and more. Thanks for the heads up.
#4596 of 5207 2006 Civic LX clearcoat problem
Jan 09, 2006 (1:38 pm)
After 160,000 on my 2001 Civic, I purchased 2006 as soon as available. With 4000 kms, I have more rock chip marks and surface scratches then when I traded the old one. It seems the clearcoat didn't set or something. Has anyone else had this problem?

The real problem with the Civic is to cut down the aerodynamic drag; are HUGE exposed painted surfaces to the airstream and unfortunately debris stream. The other problem is the "look at the front bumper and you just caused 600 dollars easy of paint and rubber work" style of build. So unless you have real big dings, it might be worth your while to "repaint" and get a bra to cover up your leading edges.

You have me a bit confused between shoes, drums and linings.
The unfortunate thing is that in upstate NY nothing lasts 100,000 miles.

I lived in Rome for a number of years, so I have to say I do agree with you. . I think I could have gotten more than 250k miles out of 1970 VW Bug, if it were not for time operating in that area!

Makes sense. Went to the paint shop this AM and got depressed. Seems a lot of people are getting the 3m clear bra for this years model. Given the damages from even one winter sanded highway trip, it seems warranted.
