I purchase a 2012 civic si sedan on April 3rd of 2012 and can confirm the the gasoline sloshes back and fourth when you step on the brakes. It is especially noticeable when the tank is half full. At first I thought it was stuff in the trunk. After emptying it out, it sounded worse as the thud or thunk is much clearer with the trunk empty.Report it
I have not noticed anysloshing in my Civic. If you feel that this is a defect, 1st take other Civics for a ride to see if it is characteristic of other Honda Civics. You would have something to compare you car with. If it unique to your car then you canuse consumer laws to help you. Ask to speak to the district service rep and let him hear the problem. Never accept the dealers word as final expecially when your not happy and feel there is a legit complaint. I have owned 5 Hondas and there have been problems...all fixed to my satisifaction. With all the parts and tech in cars, all makes have problems. Honda takes care of their customers with valid problems. The Forums 9th Gen Civic, 9th Civic and Edmunds are excellent for discussing problems and fixes for the new Civics, along with other Civic news.Report it
