Bought a brand new Civic in back when the 15 plates came out and it suffered from horrendous clutch judder. Garage agreed and replaced clutch, it was ok for a while and then just got worse.
Anyway.....being a loyal Honda customer I got so exasperated that I took a £3400 hit and bought a replacement car thinking that my clutch issues were just down to bad luck.
The bad news is I wouldn't say the replacement car has that great a clutch either. I haven't even bothered complaining this time.
After 5 brand new Honda`s over the last 10 years I wont be buying another.
The clutches are garbage..... and on top of that the 1.6 diesels seem to have have this weird dip in power thing going on. My first 1.6d car had it, this car has it, and the courtesy car I had the use of had it.
Honda have lost the plot, next stop BMW for me.
Ohh..... I forgot to mention the weird plasticy resonating noise that frequently comes from the engine when starting from cold. God knows what it is but it sounds bad.
