I am curious, does anyone know if there is a certain timeframe where new car defects (if there are any) are most likely to be noticed? (ex: within the first 5k milee)

I had my civic six months before it had any issues. I read All the posts on here and thought man, I'm lucky. Then all kinds of issues, car ended up being a lemon. I'm waiting on a replacement now.

Body control module needs replacement on my car because proximity auto unlock doesn't work. This is a minor nuisance. Nothing else wrong with the car after 50k kms. I am expecting nothing until the warranty ends.

Actually, given that my previous 8th gen Civic held its own and didn't ask for one repair until I sold it at 100k kms, I'm expecting no repairs down the road until 100k kms.
