Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

Hey guys,

I had bought a brand new Honda Civic LX manual (end of 2009)just 8 months ago from Happy Honda in Vancouver. Unfortunately, the clutch worn out in 10,000 kilometers. Is it normal for Honda Civic car considering I am not an aggressive driver. I called Honda dealer and they said it is not covered under the Honda warranty and cost of replacing is around $1400 including taxes.

What my question is would Honda cover me for worn out clutch or do I just have no other choice?

Thank you in advance,

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

I doubt they'll cover it, as they can say it's a normal wear and tear item.. But that is unusually fast for a clutch to wear out. I'd at least ask.

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

That is sad. The reason I bought a brand new car especially Honda is so that I don't have to worry about any major fixing for long time. My question is how would I be assure that the clutch wasn't slightly worn out before I bought the car? Personally, I would never buy a car from Happy Honda and would not recommend anyone to buy it from Happy Honda. Service is bad

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

@ xRiCeBoYx - yes that is what the dealer says that is a normal wear and tear item therefore, it is not covered under warranty..

@ sl33pyriceboi - yes it is slipping. When on gear and giving gas the car doesn't run to its optimum speed.

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

I don't understand how a clutch could go that early. My clutch has 135k on it *knock on wood as well* and it is my first standard. Is it slipping in high gear(revs shooting up with no speed)? Drive in 3rd at a low speed and floor the throttle. I mean you already said it's slipping, but those 2 things would pretty much verify it from what I've heard.

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

Happy Honda doesn't have a great reputation, Carter Honda has always been good to me though.

Contact Evo Garage in Richmond, they specialize in Honda/Acura and have a great reputation.

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

@ MelJ - First it was slipping in high gear (gear 3 and 4). Then it started slipping in 2nd gear and 1 gear within 30minutes of driving..
At first I thought it was the footwear I was wearing and I was probably not giving enough gas but later I found it was the car that was stalling.

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

If it was used it was most likely the driver who owned it before not knowing how to drive a manual. Honda definitely wont cover it, since its driver error, unless they find a manufacturing default (well, atleast admit there was a manufacturing default). If you are really mechanically inclined you can do a clutch, if not, I suggest buying an exedy oem clutch (theyre like $120) and taking it to a good shop to do it.

It sucks when stuff like this happens. How many miles have you put on it yourself? how many miles are on the car?

Dang, well maybe there was a manufacturing defect, but definitely dont expect honda to pay for it, unfortunately they wont.

Actually, i just thought, maybe the person before, or someone test driving didnt know how to use a clutch and overheated it, that would glaze the flywheel, and cause slipping. Maybe after some hard use the glaze would come off. If not then youll have to resurface the flywheel and replace the clutch anyway.

Re: Honda Civic Clutch Warranty

You would have to be driving your car like a maniac for 10000kms to burn out a clutch. Either that or you constantly rest your left foot on it. I just bought a 99 Civic that was sold at Happy Honda 11 years ago. It has 165 000 Km on it and original clutch.
