I have just joined this site to read up on the Touring trim issues with the Infotainment system. This is probably the hottest disappointment and frustration topic with the 2016 Honda Civic Touring trim. Looking through the threads here there doesn't seem to be anybody venting.

I am expecting delivery of my Touring anyday now and boy am I concerned. I have read of people having issues even as they are taking delivery of their car. Many many problems with little help from Honda. Can't begin to describe them all that are showing up on other forums.

Fellow Touring owners, what are you experiencing? Good and bad.

I've had a Touring since Sunday. I have also been following the infotainment issues on the various forums closely with interest and worry. So far, I have not had any audio problems in my car. I have used the regular FM radio along with Android Auto (music and navigation). I did notice once that Android Auto wouldn't start. I had to unplug and replug my USB cable and it worked. But I noticed that my USB port is somewhat loose and has a lot of play in it. I will have to keep an eye on it to see if it gets worse.

I just got my Civic Touring last night, put over 200 miles in it so far, no troubles at all.
I have an Android phone, I wonder if the people having trouble have iphones?

It doesn't seem to an Android/Apple issue. You might suspect that with the infotainment unit being Android based.

So people are having issues beyond the Apple CarPlay difficulties that are being discussed in this thread? http://www.10thcivicforum.com/forum...scussion-forum/5529-apple-carplay-issues.html
Most definately, Apple carplay really doesn't get mentioned too often. Lots of issues. Often people are loosing all sound no matter the source. Screen going off colour etc. thats why I'm looking for information prior to accepting delivery. You can bet I will be giving it a good test. Using the remote start also seems to to effect some peoples unit.

I'll second all of the issues on my Touring. Had the car for over 2 weeks now with 3 seperate trips to the dealer. Still no resolution. The problem is not Apple or Android based. The fault occurs even when the phone is off. I still have absolutely no audio of any type. I have been told a number of times that Honda is working on it with will contact me shortly once they have the fix nailed down. Major disappointment with Honda!!!!!!

even a hard reset doesn't bring your audio back?

I think I have found a temporary fix until Honda can find an easy permanent fix.
It's worked for me for 24 hours which is not a long testing period but is the longest stable time I've had. So I'll share it,even though it might be premature.
I have altered some settings under the heading of

"Vehicle Settings">"Door/Window Setup"
I believe there's a conflict between some of these features being on and the volume control. So, I turned them to off (the ones that could be turned to "off") ( not the auto door lock feature) Like I said, I have been stable for nearly 24 hours. I am not sure which feature is causing the conflict yet and I'm apprehensive about changing any setting since it's working so nicely. I do miss the
" Walk away auto lock" feature. (Which may be the culprit)
Please chime in if you can go farther with this lead. Like I said, it hasn't stood the test of time and I am NOT a techie...on the contrary. Also, this lead may give Honda a starting point for what may be an easy permanent fix.

No guarantees on this, but this is what I have discovered.

Oh wow, I have nearly 300 miles now, and mine is still ok, Fingers crossed she stays that way!
I Love my dealership but no interest in having to keep taking my car back.
So far all is good.

I was speaking with the GM at my dealer this afternoon. My *** Touring arrives tomorrow. I expressed my infotainment worry. He acknowledged that two of their Touring vehicles have had infortainment breakdowns.

This may be the reason my Touring is a couple of weeks late. Wouldn't mind the delay if it means a working system.

After 2 weeks with my Touring, I finally had my first infotainment glitch. I was listening to some tracks on my Ipod. Mid track, the music stopped for a second and came back on. After it came back on, the music was extremely distorted. I checked other sources (Sirius XM, FM) and they were similarly distorted. I tried powering the system down and back up and the distortion went away. Admittedly milder symptoms than others and an easier fix, but it could happen again and/or get worse. My 3rd Honda in a row with audio issues...

Don't see why they shouldn't be able to since there has to be some communication going on between the Service Manager and Honda, maybe even the service advisors.

What led you to suspect the door lock controls are affecting the volume?
