Somebody said they got theirs fixed and it was a pulley issue.
Was this message an email or a snail mail letter?I just sent this to Honda Canada.
"Please take the time to go to this link and read all about everyone's 2012 Civic Si. http://www.9thgencivic.com/forum/drivetrain-problems/53745-1st-gear-clutch-noise.html
If I am going to pay 30,000 dollars for a car, I would expect it not to make any EMBARRASSING noises until it's at least 120,000Km old. But this noise started at 15,000km. Almost everyday now, when I let my foot off the clutch in 1st gear, pulling from a complete stop, the clutch plate (possibly throw out bearing) squeals.
The noise sounds like when you drag a table across a wooden floor. The noise lasts for about 3/4 of a second. It is very loud inside the car, and it turns heads out on the streets. I wish for this to be fixed under complete warranty. Even if it is related to the clutch. Me and 1000s of other Si owners want this dealt with professionally. The least Honda could do in CANADA, where this beautiful automobile is BUILT, is to INVESTIGATE THIS ISSUE FULLY, and provide all affected customers with a comprehensive package that will replace the defective part from 0-100,000km inclusively. Because Honda is supposed to be all about QUALITY. I have no respect for people who build GARBAGE. So, please give this message to the HIGHEST possible person in charge there. On behalf of the 1000s affected, make us proud to own a Honda, and fix your shit that we paid you for."
