2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

I hope someone can help me!! I have a 2002 Honda Civic EX with only 35,560 miles on it and when I went in for an oil change (at the dealer) last weekend, they told me that my compliance bushings are starting to tear and need to be replaced. I had never heard of this and neither did my dad. Is this a common thing? Even at such a low mileage? They told me that, along with a front wheel alignment, would cost around $550. Help!?! Any info would be appreciated.

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

I just got back from the dealer today for this exact same thing. I went in for an oil change and asked them to look at the power steering system since the car lost power steering. (Still don't know how.) They looked over the car and saw the front LCA compliance bushings were shot... same thing with the front struts.

This is on a car with 31k miles that my sister drives to and from college and doing other normal stuff.

Labor was the killing factor. The bushings themselves are cheap, but labor + alignment is what brings up the price.

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

go to www.energysuspensionparts.com, and order their lower control arm bushing set, they are 50 bucks, and last a lot longer, then have them installed

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

VERY common issue for them to tear. i just got my new ES bushings installed + alignment for $225 at sears which is reasonable since you will prolly never need to replace them again. that polyurethane is tough stuff and way better than oem rubber.

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

My 2002 Civic EX - has about 73,000 miles and I took it to my independent mechanic (only honest mechanic that I know of) and he replaced the passenger side compliance bushings. Parts - 2 bushings - $28.16 and $190.00 labor (2.50 hrs at $76/hr) Total - $218.16.

Car had been making noise - when making sharp turns and hitting bumps. I didn't realize that the car was not driving as well as it usually does. What a difference!!

I have never taken any car of mine to the dealer for repairs - except recalls or warranty work. I have taken it there a couple of times for oil changes (my regular guy is 45 minutes away) and every time the dealer guy comes back with several things (expensive things) that needed to be done and my guy would check and say - not yet. They have tried to get me to do the timing belt - my guy says it's not necessary yet - because of the type of driving I do. He checks it every time I'm there.

This Civic has been the cheapest cars to maintain - I hope I'm not jinxing myself. The only pricey maintenance was I had to replace the AC this past summer.

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

My only advice to you Lynn - is NEVER NEVER trust a car dealer's service department.

Find an honest independent repair shop.

I can't tell you how many times the dealer's shop has given me a list of things that required immediate attention. My regular guy didn't agree and car is fine.

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

I take my car to the dealer for service and I've never had a problem, I just tell them what I need done and ignore their random recommendations. The quality of work is good, they have all the proper tools, I know they're using Honda parts and they have accountability if something goes wrong.

They recommend service based on Honda's engineering specifications, unlike your mechanic GaPeach they can't recommend leaving a timing belt in past the required service intervals.

Re: 2002 Honda Civic EX Compliance bushings

I don't understand why dealers are recommending a timing belt change before the 100k interval. I highly doubt they are getting in there and doing a visual inspection because that is more work than they care to do without charging you for it. Anyway, this thread is a few years old but it is good to know newer prices since I will be replacing my bushings soon (Since they have 100k miles on them)

Because timing belts are rated for both age and mileage.
