Always best to ask your Honda service department, it's free and will diagnose any potential problems
HI,Hello fellow 2016 Civic owners! I have the 2.0L EX and I’m loving the car, but have one question/concern. When I’m driving below 40mph, usually in town, I can feel the engine/transmission “kicking in” when I lightly press the gas pedal during coasting. I recreate this consistently by following these steps: 1. Accelerate to 30 mph or so. 2. Let off the gas and coast for a few seconds. 3. Lightly press the gas pedal again. It feels just like a slight pull forward. This doesn’t happen at highway speeds. After the quick "kick" or pull it rides smooth.
Is this just a CVT thing? I’ve never had one. I don’t know what’s normal. Can anyone else confirm this happens?
