2006 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Owned this car for three years and have had no major problems -- Just two recalls for a tensioner bolt and drivers seat bracket bolt. Gas mileage is superb, but it is only a small 4 cyl. and you can notice the strain. As a prior poster mentioned, car is not good in the snow. Maybe too light? Have had difficulty ascending slight grades with only a coating of snow on the road. I have also had problems with traction on level streets from a stopped position. Interior constructed of VERY cheap plastics that scratch and mark seemingly from just looking at it wrong. Suspension squeaks during cold weather months. No momentum obtained on highway driving; have to keep your foot to the floor.

Best Features

Futuristic styling, LED gauges, safety features, gas economy.

Worst Features

Use better quality interior plastics; reposition emergency handbreak so it doesn't hit your knee; traction control option (even for a front-wheel drive)
