Has anyone had this issue before? My car has 4200 miles on it and this has been present since fairly shortly after I took delivery of the car. I'm wondering if it's worth it to try to get it covered under warranty.

I don't have pics handy but I have the same thing happening on my Si at around 35k miles. Mine has more gap below the headlight and less by the quarter panel but its very similar. Haven't had time to take anything off and see whats wrong

There are two places under the headlight where the bumber has clips and three or four clips where the bumber meets the fender, one of the clips may have popped out. Try pushing it back in. If afraid of damaging something take to dealer and see if they can fix.

I'd just not mess with anything and take it to the dealer. That's clearly an issue that's their fault because the car is so new so they should be the ones to fix it.

I've got the same issue. These bumpers seem to be pretty fragile to slight bumps, snowbanks, etc.

Yeah it’s not supposed to look like that. Take it back to the dealer so they can fix it

I had the same problem on my 2016 civic when I bought it. I took it back to the dealership the day after I brought it home and they don't me to pound sand because it had already left the lot so here I am 3 years later with my front bumper sticking out still.

Yep, this is more common than it should be. Mine was askew on the drivers side.

The day after? Wow, what a douche move by the dealer. Usually they're so concerned with getting perfect scores on the after sales surveys that they would take care of something as minor as this is. I'd take my business elsewhere in the future.

It was very disappointing, they kiss your ass until you take the car off the lot and then they make you feel like you're on your own.

I take it that you didn't get a survey from Honda corporate following your purchase?

You should of never accepted that answer. The car has a warranty that lasts much longer than the day you drive it off, the lot. Smh.

My 2017 civic had the same issue, it was a broken clip. They replaced it under warranty, about six months after I bought it with no problem.

Also, I forgot to mention that my drivers side bumper sticks out a tiny bit and is not flush with the body. It's been like that since day 1 but I just figured it's too small of an issue for me to go to the dealer about it. And since i'm over a year in with the car it's probably too late now anyway. Looks like this issue is more common than not.
