Honda Civic Sedan 2006

  • I'm glad, but not the least bit surprised, that the sedan looks better in person than it does in pictures. Honda has a long history of doing this.

    Personally, I would prefer a hatchback Civic, but since that's not an option in '06, it's increasingly looking like a sedan is in my future.

    Thanks for the report.

    im 16 and im getting a new car big whoop.
    its a 2006 honda civic si, and im not spoiled
    And im probably the best stick shift driver here, im 16 but i know how to drive stick and very well at that


    I think skills come with experience, so you are telling me that you have 10 years worth of experience driving sticks? You must have been 6 when they put you behind the wheel. How did you manage to get your 6 year olf legs to reach the gas, brake, and clutch pedals? How did you muster up the strength to turn the steering wheel with the 6 year old muscles? Most states do not allow kids to get their learning permits until they are 16. Which will mean that you have not been driving legally until last year. I don't think you have mustered up driving in just one year of limited driving. It takes different situations to get the skills honed.

    You may be the best stick shiftd driver amongst your peers, may be. But not amongst people out here. There are people who have been driving stick when I was just a twinkle, and you were not even a thought.

    I believe I saw on College Hills Honda website that there was a 17" alloy wheel accessory available. Could these be the wheels you saw? Can anyone confirm this?

    A post above is right on point. The dash of the 2005 Civic has whats called a double-din opening. Only an aftermarket dash kit is needed to mount a single din receiver, no kit needed for a double din replacement unit.

    I believe that the AC controls are not linked with the Nav unit (2006), therefor a replacement dash piece (bezel) used for Civics w/ Navi would need to be used for an aftermarket installation. Wiring either via interface harness or direct hard wire. Functionality for steering wheel mounted controls would be lost, although, there is an aftermarket option to restore those as well.
  • Somebody knows when we can see EPA estimation for Civic 2006 (Coupe/Sedan)? I still do not believe that Auto will take less gas then Manual. :( Of course mostly it depends from driver's habits. Even with 39 mpg on highway some people, I believe, can get for about 42mpg.

    Just because a car is manual doesn't mean that it gets better mileage than an automatic on the highway if the automatic runs at lower rpm at highway speeds.
    I don't know why you think you can get 42 mpg on the manaul (or any mpg number higher than the automatic version driven in the same manner) when you have not driven the car.
  • Does anyone know if dealers currently have and are distributing brochures on the new Honda Civic Sedan?

    Also, if I go to the dealer on the 15th and show an interest in the sedan, what can I expect to pay? Will these cars sell for sticker, (MSRP) or something above or below?

    Thanks
  • not me... :) I say "some people".
  • 307web307web Posts: 1,033
    Would people pay sticker or above for a mass market econocar when that would give it an uncompetitive selling price compared to other cars that are discounted?
    If people are willing to pay full sticker or above for a Civic LX, then yes the dealers would take their money happily.

    Is the new civic larger than the old? I currently have a 2002 4dr and might consider the new 2006 because of the hybrid and a long commute. But with an expanding family, I also need space. Is the new Civic larger than the old and how does it compare to the size of the Prius? Any other suggestions for economical cars with space?
  • "The 2006 Civic 4D and 2D on-sale date has been changed from September 15,
    2005 to September 9, 2005."
    * The Civic 4D Type 4 release is scheduled for Thursday, September 8, 2005
    * The Civic 2D Type 4 release is targeted for Monday, September 12, 2005"

    Interesting, that would be today & tomorrow.
  • Dumb question:

    What is "type 4" ?
  • crv16crv16 Posts: 205
    Actually one more day according to TOV. Honda apparently moved up the release day!

    Hmm... guess that explains why the local dealer seems to be Sold Out of 2005 Civics....
  • micwebmicweb Posts: 1,617
    From what I have read, there is slightly less rear seat leg room due to the space used up by the highly raked windshield.

    I would go and look at the car, though, in my experience cars with very similar dimensions on paper "feel" a lot different when you sit in them.
  • I called two dealerships in Chicago and Indianapolis. The dealerships in Chicago said that they should have the Civic's this week or next week. One dealership in Indy said he heard that they would be moved up, then he said they would be pushed back to the 22nd. Second dealership in Indy said that they would be coing out on the 15th. I wish they would come out this weekend, I have Monday off. I will purchase a EX on Monday if they are out.
  • One of the dealerships said that it would be around $18,000.
  • 307web307web Posts: 1,033
    "Around 18,000."
    Anyone could have guessed that. They don't know the price.
    There is no use worrying about the price before you can buy it and before real prices are known, not guesses.
  • what can we expect to pay for an EX sedan? it has to be below the MSRP right? i dont see many paying full sticker price for these

    I just read the posts from 2 days ago. The last generation of Civics had fixed intervals for everything oil changes, filter, tuneups, blah blah blah. Then the dealers located in all 50 states informed you that you were subject to severe conditions and needed service far more often than the average Joe.

    The 2006 will sense the type of driving, temps you drive in etc and notify you when....... the time has come. I believe this is similar to what BMW has offered for awhile.

    Civic: Maintenance Minder and Tune-Up Intervals
    The Civic's engine tune-up schedule is calculated by the Maintenance Minder system. The Maintenance Minder system automatically indicates when to have standard service performed based on actual driving conditions (tracked by the ECU) and minimizes the guesswork related to whether the vehicle is being used in standard or severe use conditions for maintenance interval purposes. The display indicates when to change the oil, air cleaner, transmission fluid, spark plugs or coolant, as well as when to rotate the tires. Under normal usage, a tune-up is not required until typically more than 100,000 miles (only routine inspections and fluid changes are required up to this point). Credit for this longevity goes to long-wearing iridium spark plugs, a long-life timing chain, and careful engineering of the precisely manufactured SOHC valvetrain-which reliably maintains proper valve tappet clearances until the first tune-up.

    6days :) till i get a civic ex coupe, anyone know when prices are likely to be up on cars.com definatly not paying msrp will try to haggle for around 500 over invoice
  • In all do respect, if you are getting an '06 Civic when they first come out, you WILL be paying a lot closer to MSRP than you will to sticker price. It will be that way for the first few months.

    It is a matter of supply and demand. If there is enough fools to pay MSRP plus some, any dealer would be stupid not to take it. Once the "I gotta be the first on the block to have the new Civic" have paid exuberant amounts, then dealers will sell at MSRP, and then when people stop buying at MSRP, dealers will sell at bellow MSRP. Once people stop buying at $200 above invoice, Honda will redesign the car to boost more sales for the last 2 years of the model run. Then, when the 2010 rumors start flowing around Honda will throw "marketing incetive" to the dealers to sell cars bellow invoice. So, I say sometime in the summer of 2009, you should be able to buy it bellow invoice.

    If you are going to be the first at the door to get the 2006 Civic, don't expect antying bellow MSRP, and consider your self lucky if get MSRP with no mark up or dealer processing fees of $500.

    Unless of course, the new Civic is a flop and no one wants it, then you can get it for invoice or close by January, when Honda realizes that they are not selling. But, I would not bet on it.

    Here is my example, I wanted the 2002 Civic Si, but the $19,500 MSRP was not very inviting. I waited until all the fools who really wanted one paid $22,000 for it. Then in January of 2003 I bought the 2002 Si with 8 miles on the odo for $14,500. Waiting always works.

    they say $1000 increase across the board. Stupid. You are better off gradually raising prices as discounts increase and popularitiy occurs.

    the worship site has prices up. An EX (sedan or coupe) 5MT is $18,810 including destination, so not too much more than an '05 SE. Navi adds $1,500 to the price of the sedan.

    I don't recall the rest of the prices, since this is the only one I am interested in, but you can always go look yourself.

    2015 Hyundai Sonata 2.4i Limited Tech (mine), 2013 Acura RDX (wife's) and 2007 Volvo S40 (daughters college car)

  • spoke to my dealer friend at the local honda world..he said he would sell me the '06 civic "at a little over cost"
    noone will be paying anywhere NEAR msrp for these
