Design flaw had to remove factory adhesive re glue with gorilla glue (super glue) 3 weeks hasn't budged in 90 degree heat
Good luck

Kinda glad i decided to wait for my current lease on my 2014 to be up before getting a new civic coupe. I'll probably end up getting a late 2017 or early 2018 model and they should have all the bugs worked out by then. The brake light seems to be the only issues i've seen on the coupe, they must've managed to avoid the issues the sedan had by time the coupe hit dealers.

Is this only happening to people who are living in hot climates? Sounds like whatever they use to stick on the light can't handle the heat.

It's always the smart thing to do since issues in new cars is always expected, car makers have only so much time to get a product out, so as you can imagine they have to make some sacrifices which unfortunately we have to put up with.

I find that waiting at least 6months to a year is a good rule of thumb. Anyone who followed that rule with the 9th gen civic got off lucky.

Third Brake Light Cover

My Coupe had this problem from day 1, I just didn't notice it. The dealership told me that EVERY car on the lot has this problem. They said Honda is working on a fix and that it'll most likely be a recall issue. I tried 3M extreme hold tape from Home Depot and it came detached again. I hope they get it addressed quickly, having a brand new car with something broken on it is a major disappointment.

At least we know from you that Honda is working on a fix for it. Thought it was just a problem for Civics in warmer climates but if that's actually a design flaw then everyone should probably check their third brake light covering and see if theirs is stuck on properly.

You can never go wrong with Gorilla Glue. Gorilla Glue fixes everything. This is the life-long ductape replacement.

That's the worst. Hate having to go through all that back and forth. Might even be worth it to check out some forums to see what guys have done for similar situations, they might even know better than guys at the dealership.

Just gotta make sure the diy fixes doesn't void the warranty. Best to let the dealership do the gluing so if anything goes wrong they cover it.

Can't really go wrong with glueing a platic panel down.. Especially with gorilla glue, that thing is probably never coming off again. Worst case scenario, they'll refuse to replace it.
