I've also had rear tire problem. Dealer said one rear wheel was not in alignment when car was made. They said they fixed alignment and replaced tire as it was torn to shreds.
Other back tire then started going bad. Dealer would not stand behind second back tire. They said first bad back tire caused second back tire to go bad. Took car to another dealer and they balanced all tires and that one back tire was unbalanced. Go figure. Someone is jerking on my chain. Now I'm going to be stuck buying new tires not knowing if it is a tire problem or not. I've got the feeling I'm going to be buying new tires every 30,000 miles on this car. Wife thinks car is a lemon.

Some of your issues are simply limitations of physics:
Below 2000 RPM, a little 4 cyl. engine will provide very little power. If you're driving a manual, you should probably be doing most of your driving at 2000+. If you've ever looked at a torque/hp graph of any engine, you'll see that there's not much going on down there.
Depending on your age and profession, you might actually have better hearing than your mechanic. Mechanics generally work in high-noise environments and their hearing suffers because of it. Also, the younger you are, the better you can hear. Off-topic, but a good illustration of this is the "Teen-Buzz" ringtone that's becoming pretty popular. High frequency noises that young kids can pick up, but not older folks.
The rear de-frost-er is designed for removing frost, not condensation. Melting a thin layer of frost requires much less energy than evaporating natural condensation. It might not seem like it, but when frost forms, there's actually very little there.
#40 of 47 Civic 07 - Gray Interior
Apr 04, 2007 (6:06 am)
So we were test driving a Honda 07 Civic LX coupe the other day, and the better half suggests that the gray interior looks cheap and like it's fall apart quickly. It's not something that would have occurred to me on my own, but now that she mentions it, it seems like a legitimate concern. How durable have the interiors been for y'all? Do they get really dirty and show stains? Do they get worn very quickly? Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

I too have this exact problem (rattling sound from the passenger seat). Have you had any luck fixing this? Can you please let me know. Thanks

Got it sorted, I guess it was due to foot mat.

I poked around under the seat and it seems to be coming from the area where the seat foam meets the seat metal hardware. I dont think it's the foot mat.
I'll prob remove the seat and take a closer look.
ps, my problem goes away from time to time.

so it's def coming from the top right corner of the passenger seat. I have almost narrowed it down to a loose screw or something like that. The noise is progressively getting worse.

I have the same year and model with the same problem. I just noticed this happening, haven't had the car for long. Let me know what you come up with and I'll do the same...

Just wanted to add a report about another cracked sun visor to this thread.
Took delivery December, 2006.
June, 2008, drivers side sun visor splits opened when flipped and will no longer stay flipped up.. I can see broken plastic inside the mechanism .

Seems to be a well known problem with the '06 models. Should be swapped out under warranty though.
