Suspension issues
By halfahawk on


2006 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


New in '05. Great mileage around 40 mpg on the highway when i wasn't a lead foot. I had the same suspension problems as everyone else. Dealership replaced the control arms free of charge. I am now on my 4th set of tires at 70k. I was ready to get rid of it but I thought i'd replace the suspension and perhaps address partly the issue that causes the tire wear (rear tires toe in when under load). So i put new eibach springs and sway bars and tokico shocks. WOW! Its a whole different animal. It handles amazing now. No more squirmy rear end in the rain, doesn't feel like the rear end is going to fall off when i hit a bump. guess I'll keep it for a while longer now.

Best Features

mpg. looks. digital speedo (I thought i wouldn't like it). never left me sit. 5 years old, still looks new.

Worst Features

Rear suspension. cheap speakers. cheap oem tires (pet peeve with any new car i ever bought)
