2008 Honda Civic EX-L 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


In November 2013 my 2008 Honda Civic experienced a motor mount failure.
The vehicle has been well maintained, driven easy and only has 57,000 miles on it.
Investigation on the internet shows this to be a very common problem.
Honda absolutely refuses to do anything about the problem, other than charging their customers a hefty fee for the repairs.

This generation of Civic has also had issues with the windshield visors failing after a few years.
Unfortunately the Civic has become an under engineered vehicle that Honda has cut too many corners with.

Worst Features

Quite simply I believe Honda should stand by it's products and take responsibility for obvious manufacturing defects in the same manner other responsible manufacturers do. The motor mount failure problem is widespread and should be the target of a recall.

My 2001 civic had the same issue. Car was redesigned in 2006, they missed the boat I guess
