Honda Civic owners are reporting an issue with their new Civic hatchback, where the throttle body seems to move more slowly than expected.
We’ve heard reports that this issue has been a problem on Honda’s newest Civic models since last year, but now it seems the Honda Civic will have to be fixed.
Honda has posted a video on YouTube of a Honda Civic hatch back in the factory, where it appears the throttle bodies are moving slower than expected, despite the vehicle still being in the same factory condition as it was before the issues were first reported.
Honda’s video includes several shots of the throttle, and it seems to show the throttle moving faster than usual.
If you are seeing a throttle body that seems to be moving slower, the problem might be with the factory control unit or factory wiring.
If this happens to you, there are ways to fix it, and Honda has also shared a quick video tutorial on how to fix this issue with the company’s service manual.
Honda also confirmed that the throttle assembly has been fixed, and they are currently investigating whether or not it was a factory defect.
Honda says the problem is still occurring with their newest Civic hatchbacks, but Honda has not confirmed if the throttle movement is related to the factory wiring or the factory throttle.
Honda Civic buyers are being urged to contact the Honda Service Center at 1-800-827-2824 if they have any questions about the problem.
