2006 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)

Review

I had 4 door DX-G for over 2 years, have 45K miles on it. The bad: Stock tires are really summer tires only. After 25K miles they had minimum tread left and had to be replaced. Front brakes started making squeaking and grinding sound after 20K miles. After installing another set of pads and not fixing the problems I had to replace rotors and pads at just over 30K miles. Front wheel bearings were replaced under warranty at 30K miles after developing noise. Few weeks later I got a letter from Honda about the recall affecting wheel bearings on most 2006 models. Sometimes for no reason the car takes longer than normal to start (few seconds of starter spinning with the engine not catching)

Best Features

It's reasonably comfy and quiet.

Worst Features

What is it with the cup holders getting burning hot on touch? cheap stock tires good only for summer, front brakes should come with premium pads by default
