    Default 8th generation Civic fan and owner club

    the 2006 generation Honda split the model into two different platforms, one primarily for the home market and North America and the other designed for the European market using a simpler rear suspension from the Honda Fit and more aggressive styling. As of 2006, a total of 16.5 million Civics had been sold worldwide, with 7.3 million of them in the United States.[5] Although the North American and the home market model differ externally, they are mechanically identical. The European model is available as a three and five-door hatchback while the Japanese/North American model is available as either sedan or coupe. Both Si and Type-R trim levels continue although the Japanese and European Type-R while sharing the same size engine are mechanically different. In the US an improved version of the Si tuned by Honda tuner Mugen is offered featuring cosmetic alterations and changes to the suspension and exhaust system. The Acura version of the Civic not only received the design change, but also saw a new nameplate, changing from the Acura EL to the Acura CSX. In Japan starting March 2006, the Honda dealership sales channels called Honda Primo, Verno, and Clio were disbanded, and combined into one retail dealership called Honda Cars.

    I got it from a reputable Caltex petrol pump in Islamabad. (Caltex F-10 Markaz). Check any good caltex petrol pump in karachi. I'm sure you will find 5w-40 there.

    Some problems/issues i found in my 8th gen.

    1. The engine mount below upper torque rod mount leaked. (replaced free from honda pit stop)
    2. The power steering pipe leaked. (replaced free from honda pit stop).
    3. The Catalytic Converter clogged up near 100k kms. (due to bad quality fuel)
    4. The Second gear sometimes gives a tough time in shifting. (Transmission oil is yet to be changed. Might solve this issue)
    5. The Driver side window started acting funny. (7CF Interior spray sprayed into channels and its all good)
    5. A squeking/chirping sound started coming from the dashboard. ( oiled the dry clips of black cover below steering side. Now its silent)

    Other than these little issues, the car gave no major problem and it drives and performs excellent.

    I went to Honda Pit stop sahiwal for tuning aand general checkup. I personally know the guy incharge and he's my dad's friend. He told me that he can change the mount and pipe free as it was company's fault as these items were not of appropriate quality. I said if they need replacing then go ahead and replace them. He checked them and he told me that he thinks that they are already replaced as these two items could not survive till 85k kms. He checked database and confirmed that they were already replaced, infact they were replaced in this pit stop. I phoned the previous owner and he also confirmed that he got them from the the same pit stop.

    Ok, this window and power steering issues popped up in early versions of 8th gen. I am not when they got resolved but people say the issues were no longer there in later models. Maybe someone else can comment better.

    Yes the mount and pipe issue was there in 2006-2008 and early 2009 models. Then Honda atlas changed their vendor of these two parts and these issues were no longer seen in later models. But as far as i know, the Power window issue and Chirping/squeeking sound from dashboard was still there in later models. The later model's Interior quality was also lower as compared to earlier models. I think these two are not that of a big issues as they can easily be fixed.

    Took pics for you bro. This is the cover I,m talking about. extremely dirty Twist the knob and pull it downwards.

    8 GEN civic fan club and owner club -1266751

    Open it and Lubricate these white clips and hopefully the chirping would go away. I hope it works for you as it worked for me.

He checked them and he told me that he thinks that they are already replaced as these two items could not survive till 85k kms. He checked database and confirmed that they were already replaced, infact they were replaced in this pit stop. I phoned the previous owner and he also confirmed that he got them from the the same pit stop.
