problem #2

Dec 162006

Civic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
- the contact was driving at about 10 mph when she heard a loud noise and the steering failed. She was able to stop the car without incident. The contact had the car towed to the Honda dealer (South motors Honda), and they told her that she had a rack and pinion failure. The contact said that she can have dealer save the part with the repaid order. The contact said that she had taken the car to service the steering because she felt a lot of play in the steering; she will also try to get the repair order for that as well.

problem #1

Civic 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 90,000 miles
: the contact stated while driving 35 mph on normal road conditions, the steering totally went out. There were no warning signals prior to the failure. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer, who determine the rack and pinion bolts corroded due to the use of road salt in Wisconsin.
