Hello,

Well I picked my car up on Friday PM and all seemed well but didn’t drive enough to stretch its legs, so to speak. On Saturday I got a second opinion and yes, the clutch is slipping, front O/S suspension is squeaking and wheels need balancing! Reported to dealer on Sunday, booked in for "Investigatory Work" for tomorrow.

Is this a common occurrence or have I just been unlucky?! I hope the dealer will fix these issues

Bad times....



:confused:

Is this a brand new car, demo or second hand? Seems like its not really been checked before you got the car

Its second hand, 2006. You would at least think they would have checked common problems really!

I got my 2004 Civic from Honda and went back 4 seperate times for faults, and 2 times to collect pieces in 6 weeks of ownership before getting my CTR.

- Heated rear windscreen/air ciculation light not working.
- Sideskirt coming away from body (Clip ordered)
- Drivers side window (tempramental)
- Clutch needed lubing, apparently?
- Clip collected and fitted for sideskirt
- Spare Key ordered/collected.

Whilst most of the time they were helpful, I can't help but feel that had I not remained firm they would have palmed me off. The dealer tried to point the blame in my direction...

- For the dash lights not working, he allegated that I tried to install a piece of ICE, (which I hadn't - bog standard Honda CD player.. that gets extremely hot)
- For the clip he allegated that I had driven carelessly and that it wasn't in that state when I left the dealership
- Clutch inadvertently questioned whether I rode/ coasted the clutch. Yeah right..:rolleyes:
