I use my CivicX on S mode and Paddle Shifters like 90% of the time and yesterday. The UP shifter broke, I heard a crack and no longer works.

I stopped by Honda but couldn't fit me in and had to schedule an appointment. They said this is the first.

Hopefully this is covered under warranty.

Am I really the first with this issue? :(

bembol...

How did it break? It almost doesn't seem possible it could crack in normal use. What actually happened?

I don't really know how else to explain it. I upshift and heard a crack, where it became loose seems like the spring or something came off.

Wow, that sucks. Should be a covered warranty item I'd think. It's not like you hit it with a baseball bat or something. :cool:

That's what I'm saying, then again it is plastic.

I will find out Tuesday when I bring her in to Honda.

Hope it was covered for you. I have a 2018 touring sedan and just read the 2019 touring sedan will come with paddle shifters. Hoping mine is compatible to just add them easily.

All good forgot to update. It took 2 weeks for the part and 4 hours to replace.
