Man, if you could get that without leather it would be just about perfect. Let's see... trade leather for nav... yeah, pretty close to perfect.

Personally I LOVE leather seats, so much so that if I do end up with a new Civic, I'll be puttin' in some aftermarket skins. Nav? Well that's a different story. For my daily driver I probably wouldn't spend a buck three fifty for it, however, for Mrs. Shipo I'm more than happy to spend a couple grand.

you could just buy an 08 and honda will already have loaded the skins up for ya! they'll warm the outside mirrors and those seats for you too....
k5ldb: did this civic have the jdm styled front end? or did it simply look like ours with different equipment levels?

I think you've got me mixed up with someone else. I haven't seen the cars. I just said I'd trade leather for nav if I could.
#4582 of 4597 2006 Civic EX battery issues
Sep 27, 2007 (7:25 am)
Any other 2006 Civic EX owners ever had a defective 12 volt battery from the factory? Only 14 months after purchase of a new '06 Civic EX, it's become apparent that my original equip. battery will not hold a charge. Any similar experiences?
#4583 of 4597 import to HK

You will be much better off buying/leasing there. The import requirements are likely extensive, and expensive. It may not meet all the legal import requirements.
#4584 of 4597 Long haul comfort
Oct 11, 2007 (7:26 am)
How do you 06 Civic Sedan owners like your cars for long trip comfort? And by that I mean 8-hour-plus drives? Any aches or pains that you notice?
The reason I'm asking is that I presently own an 04 Malibu that seemed OK on short drives but has turned out to be a disappointment on long trips -- despite the many adjustments for steering wheel (tilt & telescope), driver's lumbar support, even adjustable foot pedals. After about the fourth hour, my lower back aches, plus my right shoulder (although I suspect that's due mostly to all the hours I spend mousing on the computer).
I'd like an Accord, or better yet a CR-V, but my budget can only cover a Civic LX or possibly EX.

I have no complaint at all. I drive 2 trips to Los Angeles, CA this spring from Houston Texas. The cruise control really help me allots. It was 3000 mile plus round trip. If you a tall person. I wouldn’t recommend it.
#4586 of 4597 Replacing Wiper Blades
Jan 07, 2008 (7:11 pm)
Has anybody done that? The only way is to replace the rubber insert, but getting a 26 inch insert is next to impossible at any auto part store.... Od course, nobody wants to visit the dealership for it, but maybe that's the only solution?

You can order them from a number of places online. www.handa-accessories.com has them for under $10 for a pair of refill blades. I'm sure there are other places to get them too.
