Re: Brake system makes a "fart" noise

I had to wait for mine to be out of factory warranty, and use the extended warranty. There was a $50 deductible, but it was over $2500 in repairs, so it was worth it. They wouldn't even talk to me...

Re: Bass Speaker System vs. Aftermarket Speakers

Although it will add some weight, get a Dynamat door kit from your local stereo shop installed. This will fix the mid bass problem. It will help with some of the road noise a bit also. The typical...

Re: Everything you need to know to DIY a CVT fluid Change

This could be, but he is a pretty good friend, and is intimately familiar with the gen II, he has one. I'm pretty sure he wasn't trying to snow me... I get all kinds of free services from him and...

Re: Everything you need to know to DIY a CVT fluid Change

I was told by the dealer that it would be a bad idea to refill through the dipstick opening. I'm pretty close with my dealer. They usually give me pretty good information. They said that they use...

Re: HCH II firmware updates?

if the car is under warranty (and sometimes even if it isn't) the dealer should do this without charge.

Re: Civic Hybrid In Repower America Commercial

The only real issue I have with plug-in electric cars is that we still use coal and other fossil fuels to make that power. Granted, in SoCal we do have the Nuclear Station at San Onofre, it isn't...

Re: Ok, I think I have maxed out seat comfort for the HCHII.

I'm thinking that it looks like it would slide to one side or the other over time. If I made that mod I'd want to make the riser out of a single piece of steel that runs across the front of the...

Re: Simultaneous EPS and Oxygen sensor failure

I've never heard that before. I have a 2006, and now I'm paranoid about this.

Re: OEM V. Aftermarket Bumper Impact Absorber?

you are entitled to oem parts for everything. Make sure they replace everything with OEM or you have quite a case on your hands.

Re: One fewer hybrid with sticker on the road :(

if you replace your total loss with another car of the same type (even if it is newer) you can get the stickers replaced. Check with the DMV for clarification, but this is what I've heard from...

Re: Another HCHII hit.

I agree. I've looked into swapping the seats out for Si seats, but I've been told that the airbag system is different.

Re: Brake job

nope, put plenty on... I think it may have something to do with the ceramic pads. They are supposed to produce less dust, but I haven't noticed any less. I really think I should have turned the...

Re: Brake job

I changed my front pads myself after 50k. only one pad was shot, the other had over 3mm left. I changed them all with ceramic pads from Pep Boys. Now they squeal like a banshee. I didn't turn the...

Re: Another HCHII hit.

maybe no one, hopefully. I've modded every car I've owned, so I'm not against them by any means. But safety equipment, including seats, can be used against you. Even IMPROVING safety equipment (I...

Re: Issue with cold transmission

you may have a problem with the clutches in the CVT. I've had an issue with it revving and grabbing lately, too. Typically when it's cold out. have the sensors checked and the clutches themselves.
