Do not be alarmed but thought you all might be intrested, I am driving a 2008 1.8i-vtec and i have just had it serviced. The bit i was shocked about was when i took it in they informed me that some Civics have been recalled due to the drive shafts, not sure what is wrong but i have now been told i need a new drive shaft. (not to worry as they foot the bill:)). Has any one else had this.

Use the live chat or call your dealer mate, I went through their live chat to get it done earlier today as the website wasn't working for me either.

Ok people i have just called the dealer so i can update you all.

I have been informed that it only effects the 2008 models, and it is a problem with a batch of drive shafts that had been heat treated incorrectly resulting in some cracking in the drive shafts, i have been informed that mine was cracking near the spline there for needs replacing.
only one drive shaft needs replacing as the other is from another batch.
i hope this puts some of you at ease

Wouldn't surprise me at all. The Civic is riddled with faults and made with sub standard parts compared to previous Civics :rolleyes::worms:
