my son bought a new 2018 civic si. No problems except for dealer was unable to update some part of the system when he had it in for oil change. He was told they would have to order some new module. no new module has come in but he has received a bunch of letters from the owner of the dealership wanting to buy his civic si back for a good bit more than he paid for it. So we have found some things like a strange plaque in the glove box and a 2 litter vtech under the hood. Did Honda put 2 litter engines in some civic si cars? is this normal?

Don't want to start anything, but are you sure it's an Si and not an LX or Sport with an Si badge? Those models come with an available manual and the 2.0L engine. That dealer in Cali made those fake Type R's out of EX hatches so anything is possible unfortunately.

What's on the plaque?

The real question is whether that 2.0L has a Honda turbo attached :cool:

The car isn't even made in Japan, all the Si models are Canadian manufacture IIRC. Probably someone's vanity stuff.
