You may not have a starting problem per say, many of us wait a few seconds after putting the key in before starting the car.
Something to do with fuel pressure I believe.

Does anyone have access to this TSB? I want to read what it says. I think I have this problem on my 2007 Civic. Oil seepage from some of the bolts on the rear of the oil pan.

I have a 2005 Civic, about 55000 miles. When I'm barely pressing the gas pedal (very low RPM) at >=32 MPH, my car starts making a noise similar to the one I think y'all are describing. If I press the pedal harder or let up on it, the rattling stops. Does this sound like the Lug Bug?

I'm new to the forum. Can you tell me what you did to have the noise fixed?

If you are referring to the "Lug Bug" noise, I had printed out the TSB for this issue (I forgot the number and no longer have the file) and went to my dealership.
Took a ride in the car with a service person, took out the TSB, showed him that my car fell within VIN range and they ordered the replacement longer surpentine belt.
Brought the car back a few days later and the noise was gone.
I traded my 06 civic almost a year ago as I was having so many problems, I was worried about my warranty running out and then experiencing problems.
I went back to tried and true subaru (had a 05) and the car has been perfect since day one (10K later).
I hope you get your issue solved, some dealerships are helpfull, some aren't.

Had a slight shudder 1500 rpm and and thought about this famous " lugbug". I had it checked out by my Honda mechanic who immediately identified it as a torque converter problem ! Turns out there
was a TSB back in 2006, extending the warranty coverage to 100,000 kms or 5 years. Luckily, I had an extended warranty . Brought it in to the dealer who confirmed my mechanic's original diagnostic and the converter will be replaced under warranty. Obviously a manufacturer's defect as the dealer mechanic told me he had seen this problem many times.
