2006 Black Honda Civic EX coupe with beige cloth upholstery. Odometer shows approximately 155,000 miles. 1.8-liter iVtec inline 4 coupled with a 5-speed automatic transmission. The car has power windows, door locks, sunroof. Cruise control. There are 2 brand new key fobs (which are not cheap). The exterior is good to fair condition and the interior is good to fair condition considering the age of the car. The engine runs great with no problems. The transmission has been serviced and shifts smoothly. The front suspension has been completely replaced with new shocks and bushings. A complete 4-wheel alignment has been done on the car. The alternator has been replaced. The temperature sensor has been replaced (the one for the gauge and not the fan sensor). All new tires from Discount Tire and whatever warranty left applies to the new owner. The brakes on the front have been replaced. The car was purchased at $4500 and I have put over $2500 into the car. The car would make a good first car or a good daily driver for work commute. Gets excellent gas mileage. It handles very much like a sports car so if you want a boat driver, this isn’t the car for you. Highway driving is quiet and smooth and the 1.8-liter engine will not let you down passing on the freeway. Braking is crisp and it will decelerate very quickly. For the right owner, a little extra money and this car will easily go 300k miles – the engine has a timing chain and not a timing belt. I don’t think any of the previous owners of the car were smokers and I don’t smoke. The car smells like a Honda on the inside. The only reason I’m getting rid of the car is because I have a new car, I am mostly working from home now, and I don’t want to pay for extra insurance. The down sides: The check engine light will occasionally come on due to the catalytic converter. I’ve had the code read multiple times and it is the catalytic converter. There are ways of getting the car to pass inspection with an error code. I will not replace the cat converter because it is almost 1k in parts and service to do it right.The air conditioner works best on the freeway. It can get a little warm in stop and go traffic but it does work well at highway speeds.The passenger side Takata airbag has NOT been replaced but Honda will take care of it free of charge.Finally, the sensor that detects if it’s day or night is broken and it thinks it is night time ALL the time – which means the dash board can be difficult to read on bright, sunny days. At night, it’s never a problem.
