"lug bug" cute name for Honda issue.TSB...started in 2006, 2007, tensioner and serpentine have been re engineered. '08 probably still going on... NEXT, cause if buzzing or vibration is like an alarm clock is the engine mount Issue $100 for the mount and this will NOT stop the ISSUE design error of engine mount! any 8th gen 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 Honda civic with the same issue. DEALERS ALL KNOW.

I do think HONDA (First and foremost there engine builders) designs a fine ENGINE, But there chassis's / bodies, and trim leave much to be desired, they don't quit hit the mark! Yes, this can be corrected BUT shame on HONDA so many years! call Honda of America and plead your case...Here are typical comments on this...2009 Honda Civic 55,000 mi, Recently I have been having the same issue everybody else has on here regarding the vibration in cooler temperatures. I thank everyone for posting as this helped my research tremendously to determine my issue. I am out of warranty but am told by my local mechanic that my right engine mount is cracked. I was surprised to see so many people having this issue not sure why Honda has not recalled this issue. This will cost me about $300 to fix as it would probably be way more through the Honda dealership. 2007 Honda Civic 62,000 mi, Bought this car new at Darrell Waltrip Honda in Franklin, TN in February 2007. My daughter lives in Paducah, KY and just got her car back from the auto repair shop after having the passenger side motor mount replaced for the 3rd time in 2 and 1/2 years. This is ridiculous !! Honda surely knows by now this is a design flaw and has made no effort to address this problem. Welcome to the club. This is my first and last Honda! I was thinking of getting a FIT for my wife. But after this Honda Civic experience. No more Honda in my life!!!

Have a reputable transmission shop take it for a test drive using their diagnostic software to see the numbers associated with the torque converter slip between gears. It maybe that your tranny needs work.

I have checked it when transmission in neutral, and the vibration still existing without any changes. So I think there is nothing related to transmission.

But don't rule out the torque converter, just because you put the car in neutral doesn't change the fact that "if" the torque converter is bad and is out of balance especially at those rpm's that it won't vibrate the car. In other words the TC should spin freely while not engaged (in neutral) but if faulty, the TC can cause major vibrations. I hope you can fix the issue regardless, an engine mount is definitely a lot easier to replace.
