2005 Honda Civic D from North America
You must be kidding me!
1. Battery 1 month after being bought...
2. No sound is made if the lights are left on with the car off.
Overpriced raw car. This was given as a replacement birthday gift, due to my grandmother driving after her run away cat in my Blazer, and flipping it. However, be prepared to rock the steering wheel. It's not stable at all on the highway. Constantly tilts to the left, which is a NIGHTMARE.
An absolute disappointment! Gas mileage is not as advertised. Mileage is terrible after 70. No ABS, no automatic windows, automatic doors, no automatic interior light, cruise control; just unreal! Very uncomfortable on long trips.
The dealership guys just fooled my poor grandma by telling her "It's a DEAL OF A LIFETIME. DON'T MISS THIS ONE, BECAUSE THIS CAR IS LOADED". At 80 years old, and ignorant about what's needed in a modern car, my grandma became prey. How can you sell a car without ABS in a 2005 car!?!?!? This should be standard in this day and age.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The car probably needs suspension work and an alignment.

I've had the pulling/leaning to the left issue in my Mazda. It is a condition my tire shop refers to as "Japanese Flimsies", where the suspension literally sags from the weight of the car after a couple of years. My friend has this with his 3-year-old Toyota. Japanese car companies use very flimsy material throughout, and even in such vital areas as the suspension.
Our Civic never had the sagging suspension, but just about everything else you can think of went wrong with it. It was junked at 99,000 miles. After the equally disastrous Mazda, we are now a total domestic-only family. We got tired of constantly having to repair our Japanese cars. I'd highly recommend a good used Ford or GM.
