Clutch Judder Civic Sport
My June 2018 Civic Sport has developed clutch judder at 6500 miles. Its not overly bad but I can feel it and its gradually getting worse.
The judder happens when taking off in first gear from standstill and when changing down from third gear to second gear. Its worst in stop start driving in heavy traffic.
When the car is cold, i.e. first thing in the morning the clutch operates perfectly smooth, the judder starts to appear after around ten miles when the car has thoroughly warmed up.
Strangely when the car was new it had a very slight clutch judder when taking off in first gear, but after 700 miles the judder went away.
My dealership has sent a report to Honda UK, they are pushing to receive a reply / action before the car goes in for its first service on 30th May. The service manager at my dealership has been very good and is keeping me updated on the situation.
The Civic Sport is a good car to drive, decent handling, nippy, good on fuel, comfortable on long journeys, but this clutch issue has really dampened my enthusiasm for the car.
This is my first Honda, for the last 26 years I have owned Mazda cars with no issues to speak of, better the devil you know????
Will keep this post updated in order to help anyone else who may have the same issue.
