Helloooo...new civic owner here needing some help

Hi All,

I've recently purchased a 2007 model civic 1.8 se auto i-shift. Really happy and pleased with the car. Loved the looks for ages so its good to finally own one. One of the reasons i got the car was to switch to auto. The i-shift is amazing because it gives you best of both worlds.

however, I have some niggly problems which i need some advice from people who know what they're talking about!

1. In auto mode, the pickup when move off is really slow. It looks like the change of gears is slow and it feels like I'm revving the car a lot before it switches into 2nd gear. And the revving is not only when moving from 1st to 2nd. It happens in other gears too. In manual, the problem is still there but not as bad. I've been reading things like a firmware update or something? Does this apply to me?

2. The car rolls back when on a hill. I thoughts automatics should hold their position. My wife's Jazz seems to do it?

thanks all for your help.

Heya and welcome to the forum

Be warned ... it's a bit like pringles ... once you start to mod then it's difficult to stop

welcome buddy first thing you need to do is phone honda to see if there's a software update for the i-shift a few on here have had one done and its made a big difference to the pick up and the auto gear change.
