2016 Honda Civic Cycle Time Bandit

2016 Honda Civic Cycle Time Bandit

Honda’s extensive use of 1,500 MPa steel continues with the latest generation of the popular Civic. However, there is a small part that is a common replacement item that may affect cycle time.

The Civic is built with 6000 series aluminum bumper reinforcements and crush caps. Similar to other bumper reinforcements, no repairs are allowed. The aluminum bumper reinforcement is attached to the steel structure using one-time use fasteners to isolate the steel from the aluminum. This is something that can be easily overlooked, which could delay a vehicle from being delivered on time.
