Civic 1.0T 2018 Rear suspension knocking Sound

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

Im new here although i've followed the forum for couple of years which was pretty helpful.

I have a CIVIC 1.0T SR with only 1000Km on the clocks now (imported 0 milage) and theres a knocking sound coming form the rear suspension when i hit a sharp bump on the road. otherwise no sound on any rough roads and everything is pretty smooth.
I found a youtube video with exactly my issue. i will not post the link since i'm not sure whether its agains the rules. but you can search "Civic X rear suspension knocking sound!"

I've had a visit to to the agent and they test drove and said its normal for low profile tires since it doesn't absorb much sound from the pothole hence transferred to the body. 

Have any of you civic x owners came across the same issue? appreciate your thoughts.

Have a good day!! :)

Get the suspension checked , pump up the tyres to the recommended pressure, and avoid bad roads,..

Never heard this on my Civic.. I have the EX.. does yours have Adaptive Dampening for the rear shocks and if so, try turning it off and see. Found that there was also a service bulletin of sorts from Honda about this,,,

I have a feeling Honda doesn’t test their cars lately.

 

so many recalls and bulletins recently

I have the SR and adaptive damping is not available on this grade. thanks for the service bulletin. i've came across this too but disregarded because of the temp range it occurs.

Seems better to take a look at it anyway.

This is normal. My SR had the same rough noise when it is new. But it went a way with time. It took about 6 months to disappear.

Eight months back I was in the same boat as you 🙂 my rear suspension was very noisy/kind of loud knocking when it hits a sharp edge. Specially the left side. It disappeared with time.
