Loud noise, when water splases exhaust
By Scottwm on


2002 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


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
was there.
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.


Best Features

Nimble car. Engine has pep.

Worst Features

Fix the known muffler flaw...or don't sell the car.
