2018 10G Civic highway breakdown
I thought it would be just good to share what has happened with a nice new 2018 Honda Civic. First of all, I still like Honda, as it is now.
The car is 2 weeks old, it has only 1000km. YES, it has the all mighty GPF (gasoline particulate filter), it was not a secret, i knew when i signed the papers to buy the car.
So, on the highway at about 110km/h speed, i got a mild "beep", with the yellow "engine" symbol on, and few safety and comfort features warning as well (ACC,LKAS,CMBS...). I experienced some loss of engine performance too, quite a strange feeling. I parked the car and call the assistance, the car got towed, i received a rental car to carry on the journey, but i got a really bad feeling about it.
So far that how the things at, tomorrow the service will call me what is situation with the car, updates coming on...
I just really hope it is not the GPF, because i really do not want to experience all the same problems as on a diesel DPF.
(P.S.: the trailer driver dude told me: that is the first Honda he was towing in 10 years... It is not good to be first...in that case.)
All the best, in few days i will write what is going on.
