Why should Honda pay for a new engine when it's so far out of warranty?
Remember it's 3 years OR 36k miles.... mileage may be under by it's been 7 years. Therefore they are not obligated to repair it.
Maybe they may do it anyways due to the low mileage but only if they're feeling generous.

Absolutely, the warranty on my low mileage 2006 Civic, under 42k, was 3/36 and the problems I had were over the year limit. They wouldn't pay for all of it, only 1/2, which I was happy to get but I expected nothing!

the bolt is defective , Honda had a recall and I later learned they replaced the bolt in 2010 on my auto, now it went bad again, the bolt is DEFECTIVE and that is the reason for the problem, the bolt didn't go dead just now for the first time ; they did extend the warrantee to possibly cover this, I don't understand your reluctance to understand the material is shoddy and they should cover it, Honda lives by its reputation

it happened to me two years ago, I started getting pricing for replacement and accidentally learned that Honda dealer would replace due to recall or law suit

My 06 civic recently had a cracked engine block and was subsequently rebuilt by honda (since they issued an 8 year extended warranty due to the frequency of that problem). Now it looks like my transmission is messed up as well. Has anyone else encountered this problem, and are there any secret extended warranties that I don't know about??? Please help!!!

We are having the very same problem. The engine was rebuild and immediately started showing a code for a transmission. The dealership that replaced the engine said just keep driving the car it would be ok but now the transmission totally went out and is having to be replaced for $4000.00 neither Honda or the dealership will help in any way.

Being an owner of a '06 Civic LX, I think it is a very good vehicle and mine now has just under 44k on it. I've had a few of the TSB's done and I broke one of my basic rules here which is to "never buy a 1st year vehicle" but I had no choice here. The best year to buy is #4 when the mid year refresh is done this way all the bugs have been worked out and those little changes to the front and rear facia have been completed. But my biggest gripe is that they waited until the '07 models came out to install the AUX input, a really bonehead move really...very lame! Honda should really retro fit any vehicle that a current customer brings in as a goodwill gesture. This is the #1 thing I miss in my perfectly good vehicle. It was bad enough to have to go back to the dealer numerous times to have these repairs taken care of, but this AUX input omission is just not fair. C'mon Honda, step up here and do the right thing and install this item for the current '06 Civic owners who request it. Just wonder if the EX models got it? And if so, more reason to reward the rest of us!
