2013 Honda Civic LX 1.8 from North America
Drive by wire is faulty. Hesitates on acceleration. Dealer says, "two footed driving method issue". But it is intermittent; if two footed driving is the issue, why would it be intermittent?
Performance wise: Going up a steep grade, it won't come out of 3rd gear without releasing pressure on the pedal. Even after leveling out grade wise.
My major complaint is the hesitation. Almost to a scary level, on left turns or trying to pass a vehicle.
I would not buy a Civic again unless it was the sport stick shift model.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Intermittent: apparently, the dealer has determined that sometimes you remember to take your left foot off the brake pedal, and other times, you don't.

Not only the dealer gave you a typical lie, but he also found supporters here on site. Search for another dealer who is more responsible or search on Google or Honda forums about this issue.

Honda has sold a lot of Civics over the last 40 years. Some good, some bad. For many buyers 2013 wasn't a bad year. But sounds like it didn't work for you. Hopefully the all new designed 2016 is a winner. Because Honda says they are going back to making good, solid, fun Civics again. Also the cars will be build in Canada and Indiana, so hopefully it won't have some teething problems the Mexican built newly designed Fit had in its first year. But for me, buying a first year newly designed car from any car maker is just too unpredictable.
