Brake failure at 15,000 miles
By sandy on
2009 Honda Civic EX-L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
My 2009 Honda Civic is a year old with 15,000 miles. Took it to the dealer for brake problems and was told the brakes are dirty and rusting at 15,000 miles? This is inexcusable. I paid over $600 for repairs on a new car. Now I'm hearing many complaints and am afraid I will soon have to replace the brakes at my expense. I've driven a Honda for 15 years and will never buy another one. I'm thinking of trading my new Civic in for a reliable car.
I am so disgusted by the brake problem that there are no favorite features.
Honda should acknowledge the design flaw in the brakes, recall the cars and fix the problem - or lose lots of customers.
Just yesterday I replaced my front brakes on my 2009 Honda Civic.
The guy at the shop said, I doubt if you need brakes at 15, 600 miles.
Well, I did.
I'm none too happy.
I got this Honda, my first, as a last car since I'll be retiring soon.
However, if I have more problems, it won't be my last car!!!!
But the next won't be a Honda!
