The first week I had it, the paint started to bubble on the back quarter panel.
The first 3 months I had it, the trunk leaked 2 FEET of water!!! The dealer did nothing but replace the cardboard that lays over the spare tire. The only reason I found the water was because I wanted to check the pressure of the spare (needless to say I wasn't using my trunk very often).
My CD player ate a CD at about 15,000 miles and it took 3 weeks for the new CD player to get in. (p.s. I NEVER got the CD back that they promised me).
I went in for the heat sensor recall and it took 5 HOURS! Came to find out just about a month ago they FORGOT to set part of my computer, so I have been driving for about a year and a half with only half a working computer.
My rotors warp after only 500 miles after being replaced.
I have a squealing when my car is running.
And recently I have had starting issues and stalling issues. My car won't start when it is HOT (cold starts are fine). The engine floods at the blink of an eye. When I wrote IN DETAIL what was going on (when it was stalling, when it wouldn't start), the dealers treated me like I was on drugs and going crazy. $200 later they told me that I had a leaky crank sensor and that MAY solve my "hard starting". The part was NEVER ordered, then it was LOST, and finally it got to the dealer... BUT no one ever called me about it. Thank God I was one of those customers that called once a week. $200 and a headache later I thought my car was fixed.
It seemed to be fixed... until the next day. The problem went back to the way it was. I can't come home from work, let the dog out, and go to the gym because my car won't start. When I talked to the dealer again, they told me that I should replace ALL of the fuel injectors AND the fuel pump - but that probably wouldn't fix everything that is going wrong. GREAT! Needless to say, I am looking for a different car. I am tired of being jerked around!
This car drives like a champ, handles like no other car in its class, is fast, has pep, has great sound proofing from the outside, and rides moderately well (MUCH better than the 2004 Civic I was going to get).
However, it is so finicky about starting that the best ride in the world wouldn't even be worth it. I am scared to go a long distance from home because what if I try to start it and it won't start back up again. Because it's won't turn over when it cranks, I am almost positive I will need a new starter in a year or two.
