Does anyone else have this problem with
the 2002, Honda Civic EX, 4dr, 5 speed
When driving through puddles the water
splashes on the exhaust and has a loud
noise, the noise you would here if a
car had no exhaust. As it dries, 30
seconds, it goes away.
Honda knows of this issue and calls it
a "charateristic of the car". I was
told by the dealership, after they
replaced a strut and the problem still
Today, Aug 5, I contacted Majestic
Honda,W. Wariwick, RI. (I purchased the
car from their Lincoln , RI
dealership) and asked to speak with the
the owner. I will receive a callback
from the owner.
Nimble car. Engine has pep.
Fix the known muffler flaw...or don't
sell the car.
