#5 - Power Window problem of the 2006 Honda Civic
The VIN of this vehicle was 2HGFG12876_. I bought my 2006 Honda Civic ex coupe brand new in November 2005, problems started to occur shortly afterwards for instance the airbag light had a malfunction and recalled the dealer didn't fix it the first time, very inconvenient, brake pedal was fixed before I bought the vehicle, there was a recall on that as well because could fall off and cause a crash. I have taken it in to Honda service to get problems fixed and numerous times, been told that its normal or some other ?!@#$% they always gave me the run around,the service people are rude, mean and incompetent and ignorant. I have taken my 06 Civic in a total of 8-10 times now to fix problems they never fix anything! interior trim is poor/poor altering from the factory, panels loose and popping out interior scratches too easily/fragile cheaply made ?!@#$% (still), front drivers seat wont retract all the way back anymore like it used to (new) weather stripping is lifting up by front windshield (still) various rattles from interior (still), undercoating/under body spray from factory is peeling completely off (new) door panel flexes and rpms rise when using windows/now seems to roll up/down slower than before (still/new) keep in mind im only at 11,000 miles too! Honda and toyotas quality is going downhill very fast especially with the Civic, crv, rdx, mdx, camry, tundra, highlander, landcruiser, yaris, and rav4. The last year before the redesign of these vehicles the quality was great, now it seems like Honda and Toyota are either teaming up together or competing to see who can make the cheapest and ?!@#$% vehicle with cheaply made materials and taking shortcuts, changed a suppliers or something, these problems are unacceptable for a new vehicle. This issue happened on Sep. 15, 2007.

#13 - Power Window problem of the 2001 Honda Civic
The car was a 2001 Honda Civic. Crash was involved with this problem. Brakes never worked right, felt like not stopping quick enough, had replaced 3 or 4 times since 2001, but to this day, when stopping suddenly with brake pedal fully to floor, car doesn't want to stop & is scary. Was rear ended,radio & speakers quit working, replaced & alarm quit working, had to have it completely removed & had damaged fly wheel. Alarm malfunction was causing car to run in "safe mode" and car was using too much gas. The gas indicator is not accurate, and slow to adjust to empty or full levels, even when in perfect weather. Even now I am certain that I do not get good gas mileage in city or highway driving & feel this car is vastly overrated in every way! srs indicator light is always on for 3 years now, red in color, I never knew this was a problem before reading bulletins ( but do now). Right front window was slow to roll down for months, then wouldn't roll up in cold weather, and now won't work at all regardless of weather conditions. Is stuck, and where I thought it might be a simple fuse issue, now we're finding out it will be a $600 window motor issue. Not a very happy Honda customer right now. Ironically, I bought this Civic because of a prior positive experience owning a Honda crx, which was wonderful. This Honda Civic 2001 has changed the way I view Honda's in general, unfortunately. This problem occurred on Friday, June 1, 2007.

#16 - Power Window problem of the 2000 Honda Civic
The vehicle having this issue was a 2000 Honda Civic. After an expensive repair to the front driver's side power window (replaced both channel/runner and regulator/motor), I now realize that this is a fairly common problem with newer Hondas. I have checked the NHTSA website and have located several similar complaints. In addition, I know of several other Honda owners who experienced the same problem and were forced to pay for the exact same repairs. I think that Honda should reduce the cost of their parts for this repair and investigate the problem with their front driver-side power windows. This power window problem happened on Saturday, Sep. 27, 2003.

#19 - Power Window problem of the 1999 Honda Civic
The vehicle involved was a 1999 Honda Civic. My drivers side window slowed then came to a complete stop one rainy day while going through a toll booth. I was trying to close the window. It stopped halfway open or shut depending on your point of view. I brought it to my mechanic and took a peak while he repaired it. The clamps attached to the motorized track, that hold the window in place while moving up and down, had loosened up. The slack had cause the clamp to shift position during movement and the window in turn slid out of alignment. This caused the window to jam against the door frame. The last time this happened it was also during rainy weather. It was 07/15/03 when this power window issue happened.
