The authorized Honda GX dealer in Beaverton Oregon doesn't have any, as they do not stock that model - only special order it.
You would think if I am considering plucking down big $$ for one of their nice cars they would accomodate a request for the brochure...
Maybe I'll consider the Chevy Silverado CNG/GAS fleet model instead!
Do you have the 5 speed automatic tranny or a CVT in the 2006 GX?
as for rear speakers ... is there anyone with a 2006 that has found an option?? i do not believe there is room in the doors in the 06, and certainly not in the rear deck.
If so, did it come in handy after the 3/36K one expired?
I am thinking of ordering a 2007 GX, and might go for the extended warranty as I would be keeping the car a LONG time.
After reading posts of CVT transmission horror stories, and other potential problems...it might be cheap insurance?
as for the CVT issues, 2006 and on no longer have CVTs, so that won't be an issue. i'm sure that murphy can offer some insight on CNG motor durability, but my understanding is that a CNG engine is likely to last >10% longer than it's gasoline brothers. the tank itself has a lengthy warranty on it already ... which leaves the rest of the car, which of course is simply a civic LX, and likely quite reliable over the long term. it's a honda!
hope to have you join the community soon,
I also swear by synthetic oil, I have an Astro Van that has 295k on it and I rarely had to add oil in between the 10k oil changes. They say you can go 10k in a GX with conventional oil, but I would not recommend it.
Murphy, great job on the CNG prices on your site.
Anyone know if you need an access card for the Riverside city yard? I see the price is 1.43!
I am sure Ontario probably has a good price, but the few times I filled there, the fills were lousy (3,000psi).
Even when I used the 3,000 fill at the Hemet station I could still easily make my 143 mile commute.
Last fill I went 188 miles and the fuel light did not come on (GG-CE)
I bought a Honda extended warranty from the dealer when I purchased a new 2004 Civic Hybrid for my daughter. It is seven years/100,000 miles with no deductible. I was able to get a substantial reduction in the price of the warranty as part of the negotiation of the total price of the car.
I bought a Honda extended warranty from the dealer when I purchased my new 2006 Civic GX. It is eight years/120,000 miles with no deductible. I found it interesting that I was able to negotiate a lower price for this warranty than I was for the warranty that I purchased for the Hybrid two years earlier. When I was negotiating this deal, I was unaware that the salesman with whom I was dealing was also going to be the person doing the paperwork. Thus, the "finance" person didn't need to get his/her share of the profit from "selling" the warranty. I was pleasantly surprised how low they would go with the price of the warranty. I promised the dealer that I would not post the price that I paid for the car or related items. Suffice it to say, there is a lot of dealer profit built into the price of the extended warranty.
Neither the 2004 Civic Hybrid nor the 2006 Civic GX has enough age or mileage to received coverage beyond the standard three years/36,0000 yet, so I haven't had an occasion yet to see the level of customer service I will get from the extended warranties. Also, these two cars are the first Hondas that I have ever purchased. In the past, I have always had enough warranty work done on my cars to more than pay for the cost of the extended warranties (after market or dealer purchased). We'll see if the same is true for the Hondas
Anyone out there found something on the '07 GX dealer cost?
What did you end up paying for the bare car, excluding tax, license, extras, etc?
hope to welcome you to the GX family soon!
ps. i also work from invoice -- was able to buy a new S2000 for $2000 under sticker in 2003 (while others were still paying $2000-8000 OVER sticker to get their hands on one). that said, don't expect less than $24

This little group has really come full circle.
Honda employees are looking here for information.
If you go back through all the early posts in this group.
We would have loved to have some participation from Honda corporate or dealers.
But thanks to the members of this forum we have figured out most of our issues with the GX & PHILL.
It is great to have you guys on board. I know that I am looking forward to upgrading from my 7th generation GX as soon as I wear it out.
If you are pumping your CNG from a well, then yes change it often, but if your NG is pipe line quality I think you're just giving your money to honda, Buy Honda stock if you choose the later of the two.
130,000 miles on my wife's CNG Suburban and never changed the filter and have never had a problem with the NG side. However pipe line quality NG
That really cracks me up - you bought a car that has a FEATURE (interior air cleaner) and you're breaking THEIR ba!!s about replacing the filter? (BTW - most can be replaced in about 2 min by removing the glove box - check your manual!)
PS When you call FORD customer service , you get to talk to someone at a call center who works for a pr firm. :surprise: It appears the folks at FORD would rather not actually speak with the customer directly.Nice to see how FORD prefers to insulate themselves from those that have something to say about the product. " QUALITY IS JOB ONE " was FORD's claim . Maybe " HIDING FROM THE CUSTOMER IS JOB ONE" would be more accurate.
I understand that Honda is only selling Fleet Sales in my area (Wisconsin). Is it possible as a "consumer" to purchase a new Honda GX from a dealer in CA and have the car "delivered" to WI?
I will try to call you directly on 5/21 so you will not be accused of $elling on the internet.
NOT ALL DEALERS ARE AUTHORIZED TO SELL THE GX.
Last time I looked at the US map, Oregon and Washington (and other states) were not part of Calif or New York, where they advertise "consumer" GX sales as such. There is one Oregon dealer and two Washington GX dealers I have contacted that sell consumer. I am about to order one myself in Oregon and there is no hassle about doing it.
Keep pushing - you'll get one somehow.

I would recommend Tom H, nice guy I talked to the first time just to get info.
When I went back to discuss it further he was not working so I got stuck with some other guy..... Act a little less excided as I was and see if the price is negotiable 25,100 ish
let me know how it turns out.... I am looking to buy in June of this year so I will update with my final experiance.
Also Bob R. with WE Energies was very helpful with information on NGV. here are a few urls
you can get Bob's full info from the second link his presentation is listed in the middle of the list with David C.
Note: I heard through the grapevine (on this CarSpace) that Washington has a hefty license registration fee for CNG vehicles. Might want to put that into the cost equation.

I don't need to continue this, I just don't understand, that's all.
Any competent Honda salesperson ("Internet" or otherwise) would have known at least the following about the Honda Civic GX:
Clean air vehicle
US$4,000 federal tax rebate
Lower cost for natural gas fuel
HOV access, free tolls, free meter parking (where available)
It may not be your favourite car, but there's no need to be such a put-down...
