Anonymous, OH (2017 Honda Civic EX 2.0-L 4 Cyl)

"Wind noise is apparent on front driver/passenger side windows is very apparent. There are some aerodynamic issues in that area which produce a greater than normal whooshing - something not present on the previous generation Civic. Front side windows could benefit from acoustic glass."

Andrew C., KS (2017 Honda Civic LX 2.0-L 4 Cyl)
Radio

"BIG SAFETY ISSUE: No rotary volume control on the unit and no 'mute' button on the steering wheel. This forces you to take your eyes off the road to find the touch-screen volume control. Volume controls / Mute controls absolutely need to be tactile devices that can be touched without your eyes. Honda is seriously remiss in this ergonomic flaw."

What Owners Say

A/C compressor

"The vehicle air conditioner was not cooling the vehicle down. I took it back to the dealer they checked out the air conditioner and they said it was working. After a couple of weeks, I took it back again and told them it was having the same problem and I made an appointment for them to inspect the vehicle for the problem and when they did they found out it was leaking coolant and the compressor was going out. They replaced the compressor and so far everything is working fine."

Joe M., MO (2017 Honda Civic Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Took air conditioner in 2 times to complain about not cooling. The 1st time they said there was no problem and it was running fine. The 2nd time we took it in we had a different person at dealer check it out and he said there was a problem. We made an apt to take it in to find out why it wasn’t cooling. The Honda dealer said that the unit had been leaking Freon or whatever it is called now and they said since it was still under warranty they were going to replace the compressor. Now it runs great."

Anonymous, MO (2017 Honda Civic Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"My A/C stopped working in April 2019. I took it in in May and they said it was a known issue and recharged it for free. In July it sopped working again; this time I needed a new compressor, and they charged me for it. It's a known issue but not a recall. But the part was on backorder because of demand. Huh."

Anonymous, IL (2017 Honda Civic EX 2.0-L 4 Cyl)

"Compressor seal was worn causing diminished cooling. The Local dealer, Penske Honda in Roundrock Texas, fixed the problem without cost and gave us an Accord as a loaner without cost. They also have a GREAT coffee machine in their service department"

What Owners Say

Gauges

"Gauge cluster had blank spots and was unable to read miles."

Keyless entry

"Keyless entry worked about half of the time. But my car was under warranty so the dealer fixed the problem for free. They had to replace a couple parts."

"Automatic car lock software had to be reprogrammed to work as intended."

Anonymous, NS (2017 Honda Civic Sport 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Tire pressure monitor

"Tire Pressure monitor is very sensitive, only has a 3 psi range, which means it triggers every time the ambient temperature has a big swing. The dealer told us this is a known issue with the Honda Civic, Honda is using a new type of pressure monitoring instrument, and the dealer cannot do anything about it. The end result is the TPMS indicator light is constantly on, warning the driver that the pressure is out of range, so we (the driver) never pay attention to it. The dealer says a software fix has been pushed for this issue on the Honda CRV, but no such correction has yet been pushed by Honda for the Civic. The dealer is also frustrated because they get constant complaints about the issue but cannot do anything about it."

Jacob G., LA (2017 Honda Civic LX 2.0-L 4 Cyl)

"Calibrating the tpms does not work!"

Michael N., NY (2017 Honda Civic EX 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"Indicator and warning sound come up frequently (at least once a month). Resetting works but the whole process is annoying"

Anonymous, CA (2017 Honda Civic EX 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Wiper motor or washer

"Rear window wiper is made so as to disengage when arm is frozen by ice. It is pretty flimsy, so it doesn't take much to disable the action. It's easy to fix by retightening the nut. The motor should be stronger, I think."

Anonymous, MI (2017 Honda Civic LX 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

Paint/Trim

Paint (fading, chalking, cracking, or peeling), loose interior and exterior trim or moldings, rust.

What Owners Say

Loose exterior trim or moldings

"The dealer did very poor body repair to put the car back together after their cheap paint job. Had to return the car four times to get it properly put back together. They had it in their service department repeatedly."

Anonymous, FL (2017 Honda Civic Touring 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The rubber seal at a pointed corner of the window on both sides of the car flapped a little, still sealed, but I was concerned a passerby would be tempted to pick at it (I work around teens). My mechanic said it was caused by the cold and would fix itself in warmer weather (it did), then he would use sealant to secure it. It seems to be a minor design flaw in that the two rubbery edges should be tucked inside the cavity where they meet, instead of sitting together loosely on the outside (which depends on a consistently perfect fit). I've read of others with the same problem, but they went to the dealer and had it replaced, only to re-occur."

Joanne C., ON (2017 Honda Civic Sport 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Loose interior trim or moldings

"The rubber weather stripping on the driver's door can loose."

Exhaust

Muffler, pipes, catalytic converter, exhaust manifold, leaks.

What Owners Say

"The car was delivered with an incorrect grille cover that prevented the radar from functioning properly. As a result, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and emergency braking was inoperable. Car was taken to the dealer the day after purchase and after a 4 hour wait, the service department finally determined the root cause and installed the proper grill cover. No issues since then."

Anonymous, SC (2017 Honda Civic Sport 2.0-L 4 Cyl turbo)
Wheel bearings

"Had an early wheel bearing failure on the previous 2016 Civic. I now have a wheel bearing failure on the new 2017 Civic. Honda seems to have an undisclosed design problem with wheel bearings (at least on Civics) because I have seen other Civic owners complain of this on automotive forums."

Fuel System

Check engine light, sensors (includes O2 or oxygen sensor), emission control devices (includes EGR), engine computer, engine computer, fuel cap, fuel gauge/sender, fuel injection system, fuel pump, fuel leaks, stalling or hesitation.

What Owners Say

Fuel cap

"There is NO fuel cap. Water drips into the filler pipe and collects behind the first filler flap. In the winter it freezes and PREVENTS the gas hose nozzle from entering the pipe. In the summer the collected water goes in the gas tank when the gas hose nozzle is inserted. BOTH of these can cause your engine not to run - either by running out of gas in the winter or too much water in the gas tank"

Anonymous, CT (2017 Honda Civic EX-T 1.5-L 4 Cyl turbo)

"The ECU was showing codes that the turbo was bad. I took it into the local Honda store and they worked with Honda to diagnose it. Turns out it was misdiagnosed three times and it was a faulty engine harness that had a TSB. They finally replaced it after previously threatening to void the warranty coverage because the Tech incorrectly stated the ECU appeared to be modified. It was later confirmed that it was not. They lost me as a long time customer."

If the seat-mounted air bags cannot not deploy correctly in the event of a crash, there would be an increased risk of injury.
Summary:
Honda (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2017 Honda Civic Hatchback and Civic Type R vehicles. Driver and front passenger seatback pads sold as replacement service parts were made without slit openings for the seat-mounted side air bags. In the event of a crash necessitating air bag deployment, the seatback pad would interfere and adversely affect air bag performance. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 214, "Side Impact Protection."
What should you do:
Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front seatback pads, free of charge. The recall began June 15, 2018. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's number for this recall is E1D, U1B, and X1C.
