  1. Air Filter for 2017 Honda Civic EX-T

    I switched to the K&N filter on my 17 EXT. In fact I just did maintenance on the filter last weekend for the first time. It provides a bit more induction sound, and dyno tests on Youtube Engineering Explained show it adds about 3% to power. I tell myself that I feel it in a more robust...
  2. Cracked Windshield

    Adding my bit: a few weeks ago I ran an errand, parked the car, returned 45 minutes later and there was an 8" crack starting at the bottom going up almost directly in front of the steering wheel directly above the defroster vent. It was a chilly morning, but not cold. There is no evidence of...
  3. Dammit, dead battery on 2019?!?!

    I've had my EXT since March 17 and I'm on the 3rd battery-23000 miles. Both faulty OEM units were replaced under warranty but required visits to the dealership and alternate transpo to work, and my time to do so. I will say that other than the batteries, my car has been flawless in operation...
  4. capless fuel door broken

    I was pumping gas and my phone rang inside the car, I swiveled around and my hip impacted the open gas door and bent it back, then it would not close. I did the same thing, got a piece of wood and put it under the hinge and pushed down on the door, bending it forward, it latches now but is not...
  5. Electronic Parking Brake Problem

    My battery went bad last night (17000miles)and it threw up the parking brake error message. This is the 4th time I’ve seen this error and in my case the car would NOT START each time. The brake would not release until I pushed really hard on the foot brake... then it would start. Was this due...
  6. Civic Type R pick up.

    OHHHH.. 12" exhaust stacks sticking vertically out the front of the bed! HELLYEAH
  7. Car feels sluggish/chugging on low end

    I use S around town all of the time-up to 45mph before I go to D. It eliminates the CVT bog that happens unless you really push the pedal down. S gives a much smoother, more linear power flow, and still returns a small dent of 26mpg around town, up and down a big hill. One drawback of S is it...
  8. Official LUNAR SILVER METALLIC Civic Thread

    Here's My contribution. Carbon vinyl trim on stock EXT wheels. No tint.
  9. Stiff brake pedal when starting up

    This is real. It happened to my wife last month- she came back in to say the Honda would not start. Of course I thought she was doing something wrong, so I got in and tried it--the brake pedal was rock hard and the push button start did nothing--she was right. Pushing hard on the pedal it...
  10. Autolock disables push-to-start theory

    After turning off autolock, I've not had any issues with non-start. Again, a non-start has never happened to me in 9 months of daily commuting, only my wife-twice. However, we both experienced the car acting erratically upon autolock exiting with fob in hand, giving a warning for no reason...
  11. Engine noise/rattle

    So why do DI motors sound like this? Is it the sound of the injectors operating? I don't particularly like the sound, reminds me of my old VW bug when it needed a valve adjustment. :dunno:
  12. Autolock disables push-to-start theory

    So for months I had been locking the car using the fob or the black door handle button. A few weeks ago I enabled walk away auto lock. It works normally most of the time, but sometimes when I exit the car with fob in hand, the car goes beep-beep-beep-beep as if something is wrong (like when...
  13. Auto climate control

    On cold days I've noticed when Auto is off and AC is off, my windshield is starting to fog so I press the front defrost button. The fan comes on full, the window defrosts, I turn off the defrost button. What I've found is that the AC stays engaged ON after this action, even with the heat on...
  14. 2018 Civic Volume Slider (Steering Wheel)

    Maybe they sit too close to the wheel and their body is swiping? Yeah, I agree, I've not once had the volume changed by a motion I hadn't planned. The slider is a great convenience feature but its almost universally maligned by the greater web which makes me wonder if people just don't take...
  15. My Civic and The Misses

    Please expand on "its a husband thing" not to have your car look "better" than your wife's because I've never heard of this concept before. Thanks.
  16. Buying a new 2017 Civic EX-T Coupe. Should I be worried about the CVT?

    My dealer has a free unlimited powertrain warranty which covers the CVT, so no worries on my part. Maybe a dealer near you offers this nice extra?
  17. 2017 Civic issues

    1. I've noticed a lack of zip at times, but not sure if its me or the car. My mood affects how I perceive the car and how I drive it. 2. Not noticed this at highway speeds. 3. Recently, at around 6000 miles, the engine makes am unwanted startup sound for about a minute. It sounds like...
  18. DEPO full LED headlights (Type R Style) for halogen models

    Counterpoint: I don't like the LED look, I think it looks too precious and trendy, not unlike how for a short period 10 years ago every manufacturer was designing clear rear lenses over chrome and red taillight bulbs. I think projectors look/are the business. I drive home at night through a...
  19. DIY rear bumper fake vent conversion

    So Brian, are you saying the stock bodywork behind the bumper vents to wheel well covers is hollowed out or empty from the factory? And what is that tan surface under the wheel? It appears a section of the bottom rear cover has been removed revealing some kind of MDF board on the floor.
