So, you bought a cheap stripper in 1997 because of a lack of money? OK, fine but it is now about 10 model years later...why are you still driving it and still enduring having nothing in automotive comfort? You endure torture better than I. Anyhow, you or anybody else can buy a fully equipped Hyundai Elantra for about what the other guy paid for his stripper DX sedan. In fact, the Elantra has some features unavailable on my "top 'o the line" EX like heated outside mirrors,leather, and traction control is at least available as are standard fog lamps on upper models(which by the way are about $3,000 bucks less expensive than my $20K Honda). Back to the stripper DX...it lacks a radio, any radio, AC (no excuse for not having these especially at the premium price for the privlege of owning a Honda), cruise control, power door locks, remote entry, and although it has power windows (wow!!) it lacks the auto down feature all for something more than $15K. And if you can call a 2006 Civic a quality car...well check around and you will find Honda quality seems to have gone down hill since your 1997 model I own one and have had my share of problems that seem common to many this year. As I have said more than a few times..this is my first Honda and I am not impressed.

Some personally directed posts have been removed. Let's drop that stuff and stick to issues folks might be having with their 06 Civics since that's what this discussion is about. Thanks.
#120 of 1262 Creaking Noise in '06 Civic Sedan LX MT

I have a strange creaking noise when I back out onto my road ( going up a steep hill) or I stop on a downhill slope. I thought it was the brakes, but it may be the steering. I haven't seen any leaks, though.

Im sorry you are having problems with the power steering. Mine leaked completely out and damaged the pump. They kept my 2006 Civic for 17 days. It has not failed again but they could not fix my air conditioner though. I dont know what to do. If you have any answers please let me know.

My dealer also replaced my 06 Civic LX. My new one also have the same noise as yours, the wind noise after 50 mph and a bad rear shock..I'm willing to trade in the car for a Mazda3, VW Jetta or Corolla. I had enough of this guys always telling me that they can duplicate the problems.
