I have the LX 4-dr Sedan. It is our 4th Civic which tells you something. I rack up a lot of miles (almost all highway) and currently have approx. 53,000 mi. on this one. I just spent $730 putting on my second set of 90,000 mile tires in 2 years, and have had similar experiences with alignment, balancing, etc. I had it aligned 3 months ago and again today. I have been told there is a kit that can be installed that will help keep it in alignment - for another $350. My Honda service provider says it is only needed at the point the car cannot be brought back into alignment. The alignment shop tells me it will keep it from getting out of alignment. I'd like to know who is right? Will it save me $700 every year for tires? I also think Honda should fix the problem rather than leaving the consumer to do it with an after-market kit. Otherwise I am very happy with the car - it's sportier and more luxurious than its predecessors (and we have several). I just want the alignment problem fixed.Report it
