Going strong after 6 years
By viccard on


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


Bought this car in Jan 2006, since then put 110K miles on.

Had all the common problems described here: had rear bearings replaced by the dealership at 20-30K miles. My sun-visor is held by couple giant paper clips. Transmission would sometimes skip 3rd gear (happens once in a year, goes back to normal after restart). Most of the backlights under the heat/AC buttons are burned out. Battery died at 3 years. Power outlet and door lock had to be fixed.

Seems like a long list but really it's perfectly usable and all non-warranty covered repairs totalled to ~$300 over 6 years.
There is no timing belt to change (it has timing chain). Rear brakes lasted 100K miles before needing replacement.

Best Features

40mpg highway, comfy seats.
