#104 of 1262 Re: Honda Civic Sedan 2006: Pulls to Right [riclyn]
Sep 04, 2006 (12:11 pm)
Within 2 days after driving my 2006 Civic EX sedan off the lot, I also noticed a pronounced pull to the right. It is especially noticeable when starting from a dead stop -- if you give it a little gas but don't touch the steering wheel, the wheel turns by itself and the car goes significantly to the right. I tested this same action with my 1998 Civic EX coupe -- its wheel stays straight and the car goes straight ahead. I have already had the dealer do a 4-wheel alignment, which did not fix the problem. My salesman told me to bring it in again, and I will show the service department some of the posts from this site.

I just bought a new 2006 Honda Civic DX with no radio. I wanted to purchase my own. However, I talked to an installer at a store and he said that I would need a dash kit and they dont have any out for 2006 Honda Civics. Anyone know how I can get a radio/CD player installed???

I hate to be negative about your new purchase but why ever did you buy a DX model..price? No radio..no AC... no this and no that all for the privilege of owning a Honda? I too own a Civic but an EX model and even it, as the top of the heap in the Civic line, is missing features standard on some of Civic's competition...most of which you could have bought for the $15+K that stripper cost. Anyhow I figured that after looking at the radio bezel/trim in my car nobody else but Honda would supply that part...so, I guess back to your dealer where they will charge you whatever the difference was between the DX and LX (which has a radio and AC etc)to install one in your car.

I brought it in again today. The service manager said the right rear camber was "off", and they adjusted it. He seemed surprised, as I was, that this was not noticed when they did the alignment last week. Unfortunately, this adjustment did not fix the problem either; it still goes to the right. I am now going to have my regular (non-Honda) mechanic drive the car and see what he thinks.
#108 of 1262 Scratches on my new Civic EX
Sep 05, 2006 (4:03 pm)
I just bought my new Civic EX coupe, and only have 1020 miles on it, but there were some scratches on the rear bumper. The scratches were deep enough that you could see the black paint. Do anyone know if the dealership is willing to fix it. Is that cover under my 3 year warranty?
Thank you very much

I also noticed that I have 2 spots on my front bumper where the paint is gone and I can see the rubber beneath. Noticed this after a wax job done to my Civic last friday. Guess someone hit the front bumper within the last month or so.
I highly doubt Honda would do anything about this.
Drexelnet, let me know what happens when you contact your dealership. Am very curious!

Guys N Gals,
The problems with my car, which all have been mentioned in my previous posts and much of everyone elses, still persist and now my front two tires are feathering and cupping as well.
I finally broke down and called the Honda Car line and reported every problem with my car and told them that the dealer failed to fix any of them and that I find it unacceptable to have some many problems with a new car, redesign or not.
I await to be contacted by a regional manager to go through problems with me and to see what they can do to get some or all corrected.
I do love my car but have considered trading. On my other board/forum. 3 people have traded all ready as they are tired of going back to dealerships and getting now answers and or fixes for their problems.
I myself totally knew I was getting a first year redesign and I expected some issues but not the amount I am having.
Dealerships here on LI, NY, don't know how to fix anything and they always say everything is the way it should be. Does that not make you laugh. To boot everytime I go in my car comes out with nice grease marks on the seats and arm rests on the drivers door.
If honda does not soon issue recalls for these problems, it would seem they are hiding these problems from the public not to hurt sales of a new vehicle that got car of the year.
We all might want to consider making some kind of online petition or somethere where honda can really see just how many people are having problems.

I bought a new 97 Civic that didn't have air conditioning because I didn't have the money. Guess what? I'm still driving the car. Sometimes people don't have the money to buy the most deluxe model. I buy a car because of its quality, not because it has extra features.
