Just want to document/share an issue I've had recently. 14k miles Civic LX sedan.

The steering wheel sticks at times. Driving straight and in turns. It's a slight stick, but increasingly more noticeable.

While driving straight it happens if I don't touch the wheel for a few seconds. Then I'll need to make a minor correction and it's stuck. I have to put some decent pressure on the wheel to make it unstuck, which causes an over-correction. If i steadily make corrections it doesn't stick.

Same in a turn. If I am making a slow or wide turn, wheel stays in same position for a second, it doesn't just roll out of the turn easily. I have to force it to come out of the turn. Again once it's unstuck it feels fine. Leaving it in one position for more than a second or two initiates the stuck. I'll be taking it to dealer, but wondering if anyone else has a sticking steering system?

Your LKAS on when this happens? Are you fighting that?

Did you ever get a resolution to this?

I've had my car 22 civic touring to the dealer twice this week for the same issue. They cannot find the problem, but they're only doing a couple minute drive on the highway. This car is unsafe with this issue and Honda customer service has not been any help. I'm thinking I'm going to have to get a lawyer and exercise my consumer protection rights. This is the third honda I've owned and will most likely be my last.

I joined just to participate in a couple of these discussions... Have a 22 Touring and have also started noticing the exact scenario that the OP describes within the last week or so. I have around 12K miles on mine and it seems to have just started. Definitely annoying on the highway and it makes LKAS sort of jumpy as well. LKAS is how I first noticed it. Has anyone found a resolution?

I had this problem on my 2016 Civic. It was not ever severe enough to make me concerned, but it was definitely there.
Just a slight momentary resistance to turning the wheel, usually only on long interstate drives in hot weather.
I haven’t noticed the problem on my 22 Si.

just posted on another similar thread, same issue just popped up about a month ago at first it was intermittent on the highway now it is all highway driving, it makes small adjustments when driving straight dangerous since i can’t just move the wheel a small amount i have to pull which causes an over adjustment, have not made an appointment for it cause i know how useless they are and won’t find anything and tell me that no one else has this issue, but i may since i see how many ppl are having this issue and to make a record
anyone have any luck as of yet

Mine just started this at 50,000 and yes, please if you have issues report accordingly. This is a safety issue and I want Honda to own this.
made my appointment, can’t get in till the friday after thanksgiving but requested a tech to drive car when i arrive and put in the comments that the car is dangerous to drive, also already contacted a lawyer so i have a direction if they don’t fix it, i’m not paying for a car that is not safe to drive at less than a year old and 5K miles. Honda or any car manufacturer won’t recall till there are a huge amount of accidents or lawsuit payouts, i don’t need a recall just the car i paid for back to the way it was

I have a civic sport with 14k and this started happening to me too. Got my tires aligned and balanced but still have the same problem. I’m taking it to the dealership next week as well. Will update

I have a 22 Civic Sport doing the same thing. I went to the dealership today and they said they didn't see anything was wrong.. Did you ever find out anything??
