Safety incident date:

Location:
Decatur, GA

i am an otr cdl-licensed driver, and, on more than a few occasions over the past 6 months, i have observed several models of nissan and honda vehicles cruising at dusk with their dash lights on, but with no exterior marker, parking, tail, or headlights burning. they are virtually invisible, especially when mixed in with other normally-illuminated vehicles. when alerted as they pass by horn and flashing lights, the driver's usual reaction is to slam on the brakes, and then turn on the headlights. if the headlight switch is configured to actuate the dash lights separately from the exterior lights, that is a definite safety problem. the problem also may be with the allowable threshold sensitivity of the twilight sensor. *tr

Charlotte, NC

2008 honda accord. when the compressor comes on or the fan for the radiator the headlights and tail lights dim and then brighten back to normal. this occurs about every 30 seconds and is annoying as well as a safety issue. when driving on the highway at night with a car in front of you and the headlights blink the person may believe you are flashing your headlights at them. this problem is noticable to passengers as well. i have had many comments made asking why i do not get this fixed before some road rage occurs. i spoke to honda corporate and the dealerships and i have been told this is normal for the car, therefore there is not a fix available. this problem is all over the internet and do not know why nobody that can resolve the problem is. *cn

Honda Civic 2006
Honda (american Honda Motor Co.)
Safety incident date:
Jan 29, 2008
Location:
Columbus, OH

the current model (2006-present) honda civic has a serious safety defect. all models are equipped with daytime running lights, as well as a dashboard that is always illuminated. these two features combined at night fool drivers into thinking that their exterior lights are on, when in fact only the headlights are on, and at reduced power. i have nearly hit one of these cars because it was dark and the car did not have its lights on. nhtsa should require honda to modify all cars to either get rid of the daytime running lights or install an automatic light sensor to turn all exterior lights on at dusk. *cn
