    Default Quality issues

    I have opened this thread for us all to list quality issues we are experiencing with our new purchases. Please don't think this is a knock, it isn't however I am disappointed with the quality of the car to date, including the latest issue. If anyone else has experienced any of the issues below and has a resolution then please post on here.

    • Squeaky brakes, tried everything but still squeak hot or cold but only in slow traffic. Had Brembos on my RS no issues, and my CTR discs are very shiny !!
    • Oil warning light came on, red !
    • Tyre inflation or Tyre monitor comes on all the time despite repeated re-calibrations and using the same pump at all times.
    • Rattle from dash.... intermittent
    • The "Warning approaching Object" often comes on in stationary traffic for no reason.
    • And lastly the ACC when i'm following a car it works, keeps behind car and doesn't exceed input speed, however when no car in front it accelerates!!! Past the input speed.... worrying.
    • The LKAS warning symbol comes on when it's switched off ......disconcerting on country roads.

    Please record the squeaky brakes and send it to honda uk. I sent mine the other day and now waiting for their response.

    Ian defo looks like you have got a wrongun there mate - feel for you.

    Only issue for me is they don't appear to have applied clear coat to the paint in the rear arches very well or not at all. Road grime and filth sprayed up from the tyres got contaminated with the paint. Although tar remover and a magic sponge reduced it, complete PITA. I recommend all fellow OCDs to apply protective film to the paint vulnerable in the arches to prevent this and stone chips.

    Honda won't do anything about it, it's been posted on here numerous times so all you're doing is wasting your time.

    Go drive the car hard and do some heavy braking, the noise should go. Failing that, copper grease on the back of the pads will help.

    Why on earth would it be illegal?

    Ian not sure if you said in another thread but what made you get rid of the RS? As that was on the list of next possible car, along with a 140 and leon cupra 300

    Can someone check beneath their arches of the rear wheels, where there is like a fabric like material, it doesn't fully cover up the curved arch and the fabric sticks out.
    Also on the triangle shaped window on the side on the passenger side, the seal kinda of like sticks out and not fully sealed in.

    See image for the locations, can owners who have the car check these points too and if they have the same issue!

    P.S I do love the car by the way! The drive is great

    The rear door seal was an issue for a few FK2 owners, I've had it twice since new.
    All it needs is working back in to place, a 1 minute job. I read fk2 owners taking it back to the dealer to sort theirs which I found a tad over reaction.

    If owners are new to Hondas then I can understand their frustration but if they've come from Honda to Honda then I think they'd kind of expect the typical Honda issues/characteristics and brush most of them off.
    Is it right in a 36k car no but to me it's what Honda are, only my 2nd Honda but I'd buy another without a doubt

    Copper grease only works for so long. Had the same problem with my 86, Toyota copper greased the pads, the brakes where silent for a few miles then the squealing came back.

    Squeaky brakes are a nightmare to live with. Hard braking doesn’t always resolve the problem either. Getting rid of the car completely and buying a FK2 solved all my brake squeal problems though ...
