Reverse Park System seems very quiet
Do other Civic drivers with the Honda Reverse Park system find it a little quiet ?
We 'saved' our minor niggles with the car for the first service and having commented that the reverse park system was too quiet were told it was 'within manufacturers tolerances' (that old chestnut) and that the alternative was to move it with ensuing damaged trim....
My benchmark is the factory-fit Audi system in our other car which is easily audible over the stereo. By comparison - you have to turn the stereo off in the Civic and if you've left the window open (say from getting a car-park entrance ticket) then the external noise level (which isn't exactly loud given the Civic's other qualities) drowns out the reverse park system.
I guess that I think it's too quiet and wonder whether the dealer is reluctant to undertake a fix for some other reason (our service experience wasn't great to be honest). I appreciate that there are many variables - such as the dealer-fit 'variability' versus factory-fit, however have any other Civinfo readers experienced this and how did you fix it ?
