problem #5

Within a month of purchasing my car in July the third brake light cover has fallen down. When it is dark the red light from the brake light reflects on the rear window making it difficult to see out the rear window. The vehicle was stationary when the fault was initially noticed. Honda has not come up with any fix to this problem. The adhesive used for the third brake light cover is not strong enough to with stand the heat absorbed by the back windshield.

High brakelight cover will not remain attached to rear window and hangs down. The velcro attaching strips pull away from the glass in hot weather. The result is that rearward vision is reduced, and at night, applying the brakes will light up the entire rear glass obstructing outward vision whether vehicle is moving or not. Passengers in the rear seat will have the plastic cover hit their heads.

Certain Honda Civic's have apple's carplay installed, through the ios iphone mobile phone platform. When enabled, or plugged into the car, navigation support provided by apple's maps application goes into 'day mode' while at night. This creates a huge amount of brightness in the car and blinds the driver with brightness. There is no fix for this problem and I can easily see how accidents can be triggered due to blinding interior light due to the apple maps (through carplay) not working properly. This is clearly an error, or poor design by apple/Honda. I believe that carplay's navigation function is a danger to the american public because having huge amounts of sudden brightness causes distraction and major problems with vision.
