With sincerity, my heart bleeds for you-honda are, well, I can't print that here. Find Christopher Brown, lawyer, in the US, and if in Canada, they have partners filing suits. Also, there is a class action suit re tires in BC-you can find all this online.
I am also out 15,000.00 and counting. the latest is that my car may be mouldy-the air system. I will have to fly someone from another area in to test.
hondas license to sell and manufacture cars should be revoked, in my opinion.
I for one, when I get to the bottom of my ordeal, will sue them til they bleed
hope you do the same
1 question: how did you know the brakes were a problem?Did they fail? If so, how?
how has Honda treated you? Did they ignore you? and, the dealer?

I have a 2004 Honda Civic EX with 140,000 miles. Its been a great car for several years but over the last month it has shown a significant loss in power and has begun to skip horribly while driving it which has grown progressively worse over time. It idles fine though. Also, when I get up to 3500 to 4000 rpms I hear a horrible either vibration or exhaust leak in the engine (under the hood) on the driver's side. I did have to replace the alternator and battery last year. The alt. belt was replaced too but not tightened and by the time I was able to get back to tighten it, I was told I now need a new belt. I still have to do that. It has also never had a tune up though I have kept up with the oil changes. I plan to get the tune up but I'm trying to figure out if that may solve my problems or if it could be something else and, if so, what....

My 2007 civic burns through front brakes in less than 10,000 miles also. Les Schwab said the only case they saw this bad was a mail man using car for delivering mail!
Nobody can figure out what's wrong. There's talk it must be a design problem but I can't find many others with the problem.

Sounds like only the front brakes are working and not the rears. Without looking at it, I would suggest it's either the master cylinder or metering/proportioning valve not providing the correct pressure to the rear brakes. On occasion, I've seen rear wheel cylinders (and adjustment mechanisms) sieze up but not on a vehicle only 3 years old and I'm pretty sure you have 4 wheel discs so no mechanical "adjustment mechanisms". So, I'm guessing it's a hydraulic malfunction. If your front brake rotors aren't warped yet, they will be because of the heat. You should approach a dealer or better yet, Honda directly and provide them with receipts etc.

identical problem with my 2008 civic ex. i was traveling on the freeway when the car just stops accelerating. fortunately it found gear and i wasnt involved in an accident. this has happened several times and the dealer will not replace the tranny because they cannot reproduce the problem at the dealer to generate the proper codes. although the mechanic took it for a spin and it did happen again, but at the dealer it wont do it again. very frustrating and dangerous. I will OWN Honda if i am injured because of this problem. anyone else with this problem??
#319 of 329 Outside temp readout for LX-S
Jan 29, 2011 (5:50 am)
Does anyone know of any website or Honda's part number for outside temp sensor & harness. The EX-L has this feature but not the EX or LX versions.
I almost certain that the bulk wiriing harness and even the IP read out pin connector head are all the same and the EX-L just has the temp sensor/harness that somewhere connects to main wiring harness.
It is too bad that Honda keeps this important feature to their cars with leather seats, when everone else offers it in their base models.
