Ijuly 2017 is when I first noticed my car automatically re-setting while I was driving down the Florida turnpike at legal speed of 70 miles an hour! all of a sudden the car's dashboard illuminated with every colored warning light & a spinning-doted circle light as if car computer was searching for a signal or being remotely reset! the radio turned off, the screen went black, the computer dashboard flashed until finally the H Honda logo appeared on the radio screen resetting itself. Scaring me to believe the car was shutting down or about to malfunction while I was driving! three months later the radio, satellite, side mirror camera, rear backup camera every thing associated with the computer brain of this car completely went out! nothing can be reset through the radio as it's just stuck. Honda dealership has no explanation other replacement for safety! dealership reached out to Honda for assistance as Ive exceeded 36,000 mile complementary warranty. Honda actually took responsibility for this malfunction at first, stating they would pay/cover majority of cost leaving balace of $300. I found this to be crazy, as this electical malfunction was no fault of my own & should initiate recall! as I now have no way of knowing if all system warning lights are error or actual safety warnings! I have no rear camera or side mirror camera due to this radio/computer malfunction! this is a danger driving this car so I contacted Honda and explained I was willing to pay the $300 for replacement. Only to be told their offer to pay/cover malfunction errors was no longer on the table, giving no reason why offer was revoked! the claims adjuster and her manager then very rudely & disrespectfully hung up the phone! I feel unsafe everytime behind the wheel of this car! please aid in establishing a recall

I was driving in the highway on a pouring rain and suddenly my windshield wiper stopped. This almost cause me accident. Also, when I press my gas on a really fast highway, I tried to floor the gas but it wasn't accelerating, I had to switch gear for it to work.

This is a 5-door hatchback in ex trim bought new 12/2016. Within 2 weeks electrical issues started, from xm tuner going out to main headunit going out on a intermittant basis. This disables all audio, bluetooth, climate controls, back-up camera, & lanewatch. "check tuner" shows briefly often. Occurs even when driving. Dealer unable to duplicate, because of this Honda refuses repair. TPMS alert displays frequently, after a tire even a wheel repair/replacement. Per dealer & Honda tech all 4 should be matching set @ time of service, or dealer can attempt hard reset. Software update recently done for this. Told to bring back to dealer if/when TPMS lights up again. Known poor android auto performance & apple carplay non-function, no repair at this time (software issues). "christmas tree" display - no ABS, traction control, electric steering, airbag malfunction, etc etc. No long-term resolution, per dealer "software issues". groaning noise when turning wheels left or right from stop, per dealer & Honda tech "normal operation". sunroof glass breakage is at owner expense, not a warranty coverage item. Engine shakes/shudders on start, again "normal operation" per dealer & Honda tech. Poor horn performance, per dealer only a single low note horn installed. Not loud enough to be heard easily. Owner expense to upgrade to better (louder) unit. Electrical glitches still ongoing almost 2 years now, vehicle has 20,000 miles. This 10th gen Civic not reliable & may prove a safety concern long-term. Am unable to afford replacing this vehicle at this time. Honda customer service has been largely indifferent towards these issues, citing "unable to duplicate" even "software issues".
