I work with one of the law firms representing the plaintiffs and class members in a case against Honda regarding Honda Civic sun visors. We have reached a settlement with Honda in the case. If you own or lease (or previously owned or leased) a Honda Civic (model years 2006 through 2008, as well as some 2009 models) you might be eligible to receive settlement benefits--including an extended warranty on the visors and reimbursement for what you paid out-of-pocket to repair your sun visor. I can email you the notice that was sent to the class regarding the case and the settlement, if you send a request to BillieMizellrhdtlaw.com. You may review it to see if your vehicle is covered under the settlement and if you are entitled to benefits. The notice contains information on how to submit a claim for reimbursement if you paid out-of-pocket to repair or replace your Civic sun visor. If you have questions, feel free to call me or attorney Steven Tindall at 415-421-1800, or log onto www.visorsettlement.com.

It took about 30 new starts to clear the code...finally. Glad this worked out so well. Also glad to hear about the "visor" settlement...my driver's side visor broke about two years ago but the dealer replaced it as a warranty item. According to the settlement, still have two more years if one of them breaks again...good deal!
Must say, still very happy with my Civic...due to circumstances beyond my control, I hardly drive now and still haven't hit the 32k mark...31,701 now. Not complaining mind you, as I plan to keep this car until it dies!

I'm posting this pretty much twice...hopefully will get twice the feedback! (?)
My sister has been out of the country this summer so I've been driving and maintaining her 06 Civic Coupe (on top of my own 2010 Corolla). Over the past few years of ownership (bought in 08 with 77k miles...routine maintenance was done, etc) I've bought new tires, new spark plugs (currently at about 109k now) etc. I've gotten several alignments done at the dealership, but the car seems to pull to the right. Any thoughts?
Also, we recently replaced the front brakes/rotors because the cars steering wheel would shake horribly when braking from highway speeds. They also had to replace the brake fluids. This resolved the steering wheel shake, but now I feel like I have to use A LOT of force to pull the emergency/parking brake up. What could that be?

My daughter's 2007 Hybrid just had the same problem. Everything works but the screen is dead. Did you find out what is causing it? Looks like its about $1,600 to replace it.

Just found out my a/c compressor is bad and need some advice about what to do? Car has been out of warranty for about 26 months, it's an '06 LX, but the mileage is at about 32.2k miles, a bit low for the age of the car. Any help would be appreciated on how to proceed with Honda.

My 07 civic with 78,000 just had this issue while my wife was drivig to VT. Gas station mech said he had never seen this before the fluid was pouring out the front of the block. We took it to the dealer and they were not suprised at all. Have to go pick it up this weekend, then it will be traded in. So far it has had the rear bearings replaced, rear suspenion arms, sunvisor and now the engine. Hope nothing goes wrong on the way to anither dealer. The reason I bought it because it was supposed to last for 200,000 miles

Yes, this is the cracked block issue that is well documented on 06-08 Civics. It became a large enough issue that Honda of America issued an extended engine warranty for just this reason. You, as a registered owner, should have received a copy of this, I received one in the January/February 2011 time frame. It basically extends the engine warranty 3 years beyond the expiration of the original engine warranty (60K miles I think) with unlimited mileage. So, with this in hand you should be able to receive a new engine (long block?) at no expense to you. Check this out if you do not already know about it. So, Mr. isellhondas here is another to add to that "small number" you state are afflicted with this.
#1250 of 1262 This isn't the same ole Honda corp "Buyer Beware"
Jan 08, 2012 (9:57 am)
Buyer Beware!!!I have a 08 accord and a 06 civic and nothing but problems, like brakes needing replacing at 30k tires at 35k and thats not including all the problems I have with the civic. The 06 civic has a list of problems and several class action lawsuits. Sunvisor, tire wear, upper control arm just to name a few. The biggest complaint is that Honda doesn't stand behind thier product when it's an obvious engineering flaw in their design. I'LL NEVER BUY AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Good bye Honda. POS

#1252 of 1262 Re: 2006 EX struts replaced. Now what? [bigmike91]

I know it's been a few years I was just wondering where you got your information about honda installing bad struts? When I bought my 2005 CRV I noticed a problem with the suspension. The honda mechanic said it was nothing. Finally took the care to my mechanic and he said it was blown and probably always was. I want to take the honda mechanic to court and i'd like more information about faulty parts. Thanks
