Well it seems that "valet" key (3rd key) was used. Car was found 7 days later with body damage. I had to pay only my deductible for repairs.

but i have all tree of my keys. is it possible for them to steal it any other way?
bc my insurance doesnt think so. they told me that its really hard for someone to steal that kind of car without the key due to the chip in it?

I may be wrong, but I've always been of the impression that ANY car can be stolen regardless of what security system or chip in the key someone has. They are all "deterrent" devices, but no car is absolutely steal proof if the right thief wants to steal your car.

I was getting ready to ask the same question. I have the same exact car and my rear brakes are making noises that makes me think that I need to replace the pads. I thought it was odd that I would have to do that already, but evidently I'm not the only one with this problem. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the note. I haven't done anything since I pulled the earlier dealer service records which shows plenty of pad left 2500 miles earlier...Actually their inspection reports on the tire and brakes ,which are done at every oil change show more tire tread and disk pad material at 7500 miles than at 5000 miles. Looks like they are not really checking after all; I'm not getting any noise so far at 11000 miles so I think I will have an indepentant take a look too.
#568 of 572 Initial Problems with 2010 Civic EX Sedan
Aug 24, 2010 (8:01 am)
Has anyone experienced similar problems with their Civics? We've had our 2010 Civic EX for about a month now, and have found the following:
1. Ignition. Sometimes inserting the key into the ignition is hard and it seems to catch. Also, on occassion, when trying to pull the key out, it will stick and not want to come out. Have to yank it. I'm not talking about turning the ignition off because I understand that the steering column comes into play. I'm talking about actually inserting and removing the key from the ignition.
2. Paint chips. Geez, one month and already have a half dozen chips on our hood and a few on the side panel. Very small chips. We have the Black color. It just seems as if the paint is very thin and not bonded well to the surface.
#571 of 572 GPS Dash Mount for 2009 Honda Civic
Nov 27, 2011 (5:53 pm)
Hi. I'm looking for a friction dash mount for my phone/gps (I do not want to stick a disc on the dash), but if you know the dashboard of the 09 Civic then you know one is hard to find that will sit flat on the dash easily. Does anyone have ideas? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks!
