#49 of 78 driver window goes off track
Sep 29, 2009 (4:37 pm)
This is a weird issue that I can't see a thread for. Once in a while when I try to put up the drivers window on my 2009 HCH, the forward portion of the window seems to drag and the rear portion keeps rising and pushes the window outward from the track. I have to put the window up and down several times before it stops and once I had to get out of the car and pull the front of the window up (just missing my fingers!). Has anyone else experienced this issue?

I have the exact same problem. I push the auto window button up and it stops 2 inches from the top and goes back down again.
Just a couple of hours ago I parked my car and I was messing with the window for 10 mins before it went up right. I had to pull the window up too.
i was reading that previous civic have the same problem too. its the regulator that causes the window to go off track.

Ok so as this is my first car, please understand why I am slightly OCD about it.
Does anyone else have a wobble in the car at high speeds? I bought my Civic in July, it has 2200 miles on it, and I've been pretty easy on it. Sometimes when it gets up to 70-75 mph, it wobbles, almost like there's gusts of wind outside. I'm baffled by this! it's brand new!
also, when accelerating, does anyone else sometimes feel a clunk in first gear? Not every acceleration but randomly?
What is wrong with my brand new car?! I bought it with 9 miles on it!!

I had a problem with the drivers window. It happened when I lowered it and then raised it back up right away. Like at work, swiping my badge at the gate. It would go up almost all the way, then lower itself (electrically, not fall down) about half way down and stay there. Then I would raise it, and it would come down again, sometimes not. I took it to the dealer maybe 6 - 8 months ago. Can't remember exactly. Didn't keep the receipt, as it's where I get all my services done and it's on the system. They replaced the motor that moves the window up and down, and a (the ?) track, I think.. Under warranty.
Once I pulled up on the window and thought that was the secret, but no such luck trying it after that.
I'm over 41,000 miles now, so slim pickins on warranty work unless something big under the hood goes out!
The window doesn't come back down on it's own anymore , or it was half way to be more accurate. It has started to make a slight squeek or squawk on the way dow, but not all the time. A bit worrisome, I just hope it keeps working as I don't want to spent any money for something that is exactly the reason I bought this car instead of a European car.
I am happy with the Civic, as the 41,000 miles show!

Yeah, interesting, I also felt the "clunk / jerk" in transmission lately. Not eveyrtime, but once in a while. It seems like something is getting stuck, and it feels very un-natural (like you have no control of the car, it does by itself what it wants - very unsecure feeling). I am usually pressing the gas pedal (if possible) and it gets back to normal.
This is an issue which needs to be addressed by Honda. I believe that a software update should resolve this issue.
#55 of 78 2009 Civic Surges when coming to a stop
Nov 16, 2009 (7:06 am)
I have a problem with my wife's 2009 Honda Civic LX. When coming to a stop at a light or a stop sign. The engine surges to 1500 RPM and I have to brake hard to stop from hitting any car in front of me. It does not happen at every stop and I am not sure what is causing this. As I have been a mechanic (Aircraft ) all my life and I have tried to troubleshoot this problem. I was told at Honda when I complained about this that it was the AC compressor coming on but the last time I did not have the AC on. Also thinking that it could be the cruise control but the last time I did not have the car in cruise. Am taking the car to Honda today and giving them a written complaint that I intend to also file with NHTSA. Car seems abnormally noisy and I am wondering about any problem with alignment. I will post any replies I get from Honda or NHTSA.

Hey montiep. I just dropped off my car at the dealership for the same problem. The car will sometimes take an extra second or two to, then start. But there have been a couple times where it wouldn't start after trying for 8 times, at like 5 to 10 seconds each. It eventually started though. Once I hear something from the dealer I'll post again. Did you get yours fixed?

I took my Civic to the dealer and mentioned the forum and previous comments on this problem. With only a little resistance they agreed to replace both windows and drive mechanisms under warranty. The binding problem is completely gone,
