I have now read more than one article regarding 2002 Honda Civic recalls for faulty headlight wiring causing headlight failure. Both of my headlights failed, causing very dangerous driving conditions, in the dark, on the freeway, on city streets, that I was unaware of! now Honda tells me that my VIN number is not included in this recall!!.

Takata recall: there have been numerous times where I have either called or went to a Honda dealership to have the airbag inflators on both the driver and passenger side, fixed to avoid harm to myself or others. In almost three years, I have not once heard back about the dealership receiving parts to fix the issue. I have never received notice, nor was I told about the recall with the wiring harness terminal for the low beam headlights. Honda needs to fix this issue because it is a huge safety hazard that can get people killed or seriously injured.

In July 2017, the low beam headlights failed (were inoperable), but the high beam and all other external lights were operational. These are the symptoms of a Honda safety recall service bulletin 04-015. This car had the safety recall repairs in September 2009, but the same symptoms reappeared in July 2017. Dealer made the repairs (it took two tries to get it right as shown on the invoices attached) and charged me for the repairs because they said the company will pay for the first recall repair but not subsequent ones.

I am 76 years old and recently quit driving. One of the main reasons I did not want to drive any more was poor visibility, which I always blamed on my poor eyesight, including cataracts. The problem, as it seemed reasonable, was when it was dark. My doctor told me otherwise: elderly people with cataracts actually are able to see significantly better in the dark, when pupils are dilated. Someone recently explained to me the real reason: my car's headlights! I am not planning to drive again, I don't even want to try, but I know now that if the headlights in my car would have been working as they should I would probably be still driving. The poor quality of the lenses in this and probably every 2 to 3 year old car in the road today reduces the visibility so much and I'm sure it's the cause of many accidents and nobody is saying anything. I never had an accident, but I had a few close calls, and it makes me really angry to know it was the blurry bad headlights to blame, and that they are probably hurting and killing people every day. Not to mention those like me who take the blame for something so cheap. My son has a car like this and he had the headlamps polished recently because I insisted him to do so. Now when he drives me I can tell the humongous difference and understand it wasn't me and my "poor eyesight" to blame. I can't tell how many times I went back to the eye doctor to look for a solution, and the real solution is in people like you, if you want to do something about it. I will contact a tv channel/reporter to see if they can start a campaign about this, because automakers are getting away with this like with so many other things. It's a shame!.

When I turned my headlights on, my dashlights go completely off, leaving me with no lights on the interior dashboard; fuel, speed, etc. , all lights gone. When I turn my headlights off, the dashlights come back on. There was no accident and this car is way under mileage for its year; I worked at home.

Due to Honda's admitted poor paint job, paint began coming off (on roof first). Honda said they extended warranty, without notifying owners. Also say it is not safety risk. If the roof rusts, the sun roof will certainly dismount causing safety issue; if side panels rust, exhaust enters passenger compartment causing safety issue. Furthermore, headlights cloud tremendously regardless of preventative attempts. If driver can't see properly or another car cannot see the Honda, it is a safety risk. Honda America is simply a lame, perhaps once good company now trying to ride on reputation to sell poorly constructed vehicles and deny all liability for faulty work by claiming it is not a safety issue. So far, nothing has happened, and I'd like to keep it that way. However, if Honda America does not own their mistakes and faulty work, correct the problems it is a matter of time before a safety breech occurs.

We were driving from reno nv to antioch CA and were in the sierra mountains at about 2:30 am and all of the sudden we lost our low beam head lights in which we couldn't see the road and we went off the road we avoided an accident because I knew how to steer the vehicle to avoid hitting anything we got out and attempted to see why we didn't have the low beams and could not see why we clicked the high beams and they worked and we proceeded to drive with the high beam headlights on.
My son was involved in a car crash with a large SUV. He hit them from the rear. My Honda Civic went under the bumper of the large SUV. Due to the impact my bumper tore off, my headlights broke, my hood was smashed in and the front end of the car was smashed in. Why weren't the air bags deployed?? that is our concern? my son could have died in this crash due to faulty air bags. We have pictures of the crash. Our main concern is the air bags not being deployed. I would like to notify Honda corp of this incident.

This is not a complaint against the car I am driving, but I'm not sure how else to share this concern. The new headlights in cars are too bright. They hurt a person's eyes. Even people who aren't sensitive to light are complaining about having to look away from oncoming traffic because the lights are simply too bright. Not being able to keep an eye on oncoming traffic seems silly. Drivers need to be able to see what the oncoming car is doing, not be blinded by the light and forced to look away. This will lead to many more accidents from something that was originally intended to be an improvement. These lights should be banned and removed from the market.
I received a recall notice in sept. Of 2012 for the wiring on the low beam headlights, at that time the dealer didn't have the parts for repairs. Finally I am getting around to getting it corrected. But when I called the dealer they refused to schedule this repair because they said this VIN# does not exist. I called Honda of USA but they wouldn't say what the problem is,but if isend a copy of my license and registration they would review & advise. My car is titled ,tagged ,registered with this VIN. Now it is recalled. How am I supposed to proceed with recall 12v-136 if the dealer refuses service.

I noticed that my low-beam headlights were not working. However, the high beams and parking lights worked. I attempted to replace a bulb and noticed that the plastic electrical connection to both headlights had melted.
