I have approx. 8500 miles on the tires. Today I had the car back at the Dealership and was told the problem was with the rear suspension and Honda was working on the problem. They moved the front tires back to the rear and the noise did move to the rear. I was informed that I was not the only one with this problem and I was being added to a folder they were keeping untlil Honda had a fix for the suspension problem. Can anyone give me any additional information about this??
man, have I got a story. back in 07 I bought me a new honda civic hybrid. man, was I proud. I babied my new baby. real gentle -cuz I want her to last a long time.
so, everything worked great 'till I started hearin some weird noises w/the tires @around 30Kmi. I drive 120mi/day to and from work so, didn't take me long to rack up 30Kmi. well. I looked at the tires and they were a mess -and gettin worse. went to the dealer, pointed out the problem, and one of the dudes said, "where did you get those
tires!?" I said, "uh, you
sold 'em to me when I bought the car". he tried to deny this was the case.
make a long story short, I was religious about taking my new hybrid in when the maintenance lights came on. no one ever said anything about the condition of my tires, even when they looked Terrible. -and they did inspections every oil change! it was as if they couldn't speak or see when it came to my tires. then they denied these were the tires they sold me on this car! whew. man, was I pissed. anyway, a couple days later my brother-in-law told me, rather matter-of-factly, "hey, 30K is all you get from most new car tires. they put crap tires on, and you have to buy new ones". "oh", I said.
