#1 of 50 2007 Civic Si Coupe - Lets talk!
May 02, 2007 (6:24 am)
I just bought an '07 Civic Si Coupe w/Navi last Friday, and wanted to start a discussion on this exact model/type. I hear alot of issues with the '06 and even some '07's, so lets talk about issues, likes, dislikes, buying/leasing experiences, etc.
Lets make this the official 2006-2007 Civic Si Coupe forum!
I had a very hard time finding an '07 Civic Si Coupe w/Navi here in Colorado. There was only one available in the state, and I got it, whew! Anyone else have a hard time finding one just like this?
I use to have an '05 S2000 and loved it! I decided to trade it in last year in Feb. for an '06 Acura TL w/Navi for practicality reasons, snow driving, etc.
The Acura was a great car, but I got the itch again for something a bit more sporty, fun to drive, so I compromised and went for the Civic Si. Its been less than a week that I've had it, but so far the car is awesome! What a great compromise, lets see how many others out there can join in on this forum...

congrats on your purchase, the si is an awesome car!
As far as problems go, i have not heard about to many, its a honda so thats to be expected.
One gripe i have heard off is a stiff-ish shifter, but for the most part, people agree that this is one of the best sticks honda has ever offered.
Then there is the drive by wire delay that seems to only be a huge deal for cluth it yourself people.
And then the occasional person who buys the si thinking its the fastest thing ever, and has no idea about honda's take on a performance vehicle.
I love it.
#3 of 50 Only one problem so far

My dad has a 06 Civic Si and its been almost perfect. One problem I did read up on was that when the RPM's are up and then you hit the brake, the RPM needle has a delay in dropping. This problem proved true in my dad's car although not a major problem. I never even noticed till I read up on it on Edmunds. The article said that you can take it to the dealership and they'll fix it for free since it's obviously under warranty. Haven't done so yet but maybe my dad will soon, maybe not.

this is the drive by wire thing i was talking about; its not so much a fix as it is a software upgrade that closes the gap of time your needle takes in dropping down.

Anyone know the jumper array to override the headlight switch in controlling the driving lights? On my Tacoma it is a jumper in the uder hood fuse panel.
