#1 of 13 06+ Drive By Wire Programming
Dec 08, 2006 (9:27 pm)
I HATE IT!
you take your foot off the gas, and the engine is still proprelling you forward for a good second or two. Even with the re-flash, there is significant holding from 3500rpm to 6000rpm.

See my petition
If you dislike this, call Honda and file a complaint!
Honda is citing environmental concerns, yet this issue could be so easily fixed. No other DBW car exhibits this much rev-holding. They have already released one electronic update, but we want a better fix!

I'm serious, too. It makes the car unpleasant to drive, it could be dangerous in certain , and it is hard on the drivetrain. I can't believe Honda released it like this.

How is it that when you test drove your vehicle, you didn't notice this? When exactly did you eventually notice this? This seems so obvious.

It was blatantly obvious from the very first rev I took in the very first run of first gear I took in an Si
I thought it was rediculous
I was told there was a 'fix' being issued for this (which there was, but it only slightly reduced the problem). It moreso reduced the cold 'bucking'. But the car is still worth the price besides this terrible programming. I just wish we could get a real response out of Honda about it besides their usual "it improves emissions"... when all other DBW applications do not rev hang like this.

actually its not hard on the drive train at all.
environmental resons...or what a few consumers want.
what do you think honda is going to favor?
No some other dbw applications dont rev hang as bad, but then again few of them are manual transmission cars with 8k redlines.
It is entirely noticable when you first drive the car. If you disliked it so much as to file a complaint, you should not have bought the car.
#10 of 13 Key Recognition Problem
Aug 07, 2007 (3:12 pm)
2007 Honda Civic It often will not start and displays the green Key symbol. Generally it will start after 3 or 4 tries [remove the key; reinsert key; retry]. But once it went 8 or 10 minutes of tries before accepting the key.
Any help with this starting problem or electrical system problem?
