  1. Emission/Power Steering/VSA Lights All Turned On Suddenly?

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    I haven’t tried changing them out yet because it’s a fairly involved process and I wanted to rule out other options first. Do you think simply disconnecting them would be enough? Or would I have to swap lights to really test it? I finally grabbed an error code from my car - P0301 Cylinder 1...
  2. Emission/Power Steering/VSA Lights All Turned On Suddenly?

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Not sure how to load test a battery (I assume I’d need some sort of equipment? A voltmeter?), but all of the connections look clean and secure from what I can tell. The battery is pretty new as well - probably about 7-8 months old. Purchased from Costco. Any other suggestions would be really...
  3. Emission/Power Steering/VSA Lights All Turned On Suddenly?

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Hey all. Just a few days ago, a couple minutes into my drive I got a “check” notification for three systems simultaneously: emissions system, power steering system, and VSA system. No obvious causes, car still seems to be running fine (though it is forcing traction control off, likely due to...
  4. Towing 9th Gen Si? (~600 Miles)

    9th Gen Civic General Chat
    Thanks for the responses! I figured it wouldn't be much of an issue but wanted to make sure you guys didn't have any extra/specific tips for our Civics ;) I'll be making the drive up on Thursday, let's hope it all goes smoothly! I'll let you all know.
  5. Towing 9th Gen Si? (~600 Miles)

    9th Gen Civic General Chat
    Hey everyone! Exciting news (for me, at least) - I'm moving! I'm looking to tow my 2012 Civic Si (Coupe) behind my U-Haul using a tow dolly (which I am also renting through U-Haul). I've never towed my car before, but from my understanding the most important thing to do is to make sure that the...

    Just at 60k. :(
  7. 1st Gear Clutch Noise

    Drivetrain Problems
    I'm still just as confused with all of these responses... Is it clutch springs? Tensioner pulley? A bad clutch? I'm past the warranty on mine now, so I don't know what to do - if it's worth bringing in and getting it looked at, and potentially fixed, or just dealing with it for now. (I don't...
  8. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Sorry I didn't reply sooner but the paint job took quite a while and I've been traveling a bit recently. They repainted all of the horizontal surfaces - the hood, roof, and trunk/trunk lip. It looks fantastic! I'll try and post some pictures when I get a chance. The car is a bit dirty now and...
  9. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    It took a while but I finally got a response: they'll be fixing the paint issues! Woohoo! I'll be getting it done in < 3 weeks. Only issue is that I was told that it could take 1-2 weeks and Honda doesn't provide loaner cars... Really?! I'm going to have some trouble getting to/from work...
  10. What have you done to your car today?

    9th Gen Civic General Chat
    Damn dude, beautiful ride. Good choice in color and number of doors ;) The lights look so damn good! I'd love to do something like that but I'm a bit intimidated by everything that's involved haha.
  11. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Awesome - what're you up to now? Still working with Honda or have you moved on? I wasn't actually physically with the manager when he brought the paint tech to come check out my car - I was only with the manager the first time when he told me it looked like it had been worked on. He simply told...
  12. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Thanks very much. I contacted the Honda dealer about a week ago and was told they would call me back with followup and never heard from them. Just contacted them again and got the same sorta response, but this time they clarified that a 'manager' would definitely reach out to me this time...
  13. 2018 Honda Accord Pricing and Fuel Economy Announced

    9th Gen Civic Site News
    I drove a 2015/2016 Camry (honestly can't remember/don't pay enough attention to them to know which it was) recently as a rental car and holy shit you're right - I felt like I was driving in an obese boat/blimp hybrid. I hated how it felt. To be fair, I don't know what engine the Camry I drove...
  14. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    I seriously have some pictures on my phone that are eerily similar to the ones in the PDF - angle and everything haha. I just contacted a local Honda dealership and the representative I spoke with said she wasn't knowledgeable on the issue/service bulletin, so she's going to refer it to the...
  15. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Was it a similar issue? Or was it another paint issue? E.g. Roof only, fading/bleaching look to it? Because some of those pictures in the PDF linked by @1Henry look like they could've been taken from my car itself haha. I hope I don't get the same response that you did :(
  16. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Sounds like we're in the exact same boat... I'm not sure either. I've moved since I purchased my '12 Si a year ago, so I was thinking I could just call a local Honda dealer and get their input...? That's the exact PDF I was trying to link. 7 years means we should both be in the warranty still...
  17. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Wow... I did some googling and found that this is actually a common problem with this generation of Civics (and some of the 8th generation, as well). There's a service bulletin outlining the issue and the extended warranty that Honda provided to cover the issue: A14-034. I would post a link...
  18. Exterior Paint/Buildup Issues on Roof? '12 Si

    Exterior Problems
    Hey everyone, I purchased my 2012 Si about a year ago and have loved it. It was a used, one-owner car that was treated very well and had a clean bill of health. I didn't notice until a bit after owning it that there was a small area on the roof of the car that was discolored/white and rough to...

    That... That would be the CTR, then? I mean, I agree - a 2.0T instead of the 1.5T would've been great, but they need to distinguish the Type R from the Si with more than just looks I feel. IMO, the Si should get the 2.0T as well, and the Type R should get a bigger 4-cylinder turbo, e.g. a K24...
  20. New old member - the return of the Si.

    Welcome back! More fun to drive than a 370, huh? That's interesting :P I know it's implied by wanting a VitTune, but get a FlashPro before anything else! Just got mine and goodness it's amazing. Edit: Also, you've got good taste - a CBP coupe, just like me. ;)
