I have the Crimson Red. I had not heard of the paint issues, BUT after about a month of ownership, and settling in to knowing the car) I began to notice strange scratches. 'Strange' because I would only see them a few days after washing the car and thinking they were simple 'surface' scrates, I would wet the end of my finger and rub them...they would disappear, only to reappear, later.

The scratches seem only to be 'paint-deep,' to the primer. I tried Dr. Color Chip yesterday. The scrathes are on the driver's door and on the passenger, front door. The front passenger door has numerous scratches in a 'spray' pattern, from the mirror down to mid-way of the door, beginning at about half-way, the length of the door. Like I said, they are small.

Hopefully, the Dr. Color Chip fixed the issue...I hope.

My decision in color was either the Taffeta White, or the Crimson...but I am also partial to the Polished Metal. Still, I think the Crimson is a knock-out color when clean.

Enjoy the car, but I have a vibration through the steering column and seat, which I am beginning to think is drive-line, or engine related, since I also notice the vibration while sitting at traffic lights...could be injector nozzle...plugs...etc.? Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Rockford in Tennessee

I picked up the Polished Metal Metallic, but I would have seriously considered the Rallye Red. The Honda website doesn't even show this red as a choice! I owned a bright red 1994 Honda Civic EX Coupe (my first new car). I miss that red civic coupe! Sigh.
