2006 Honda Civic

The most common issue with the 2006 Honda Civic has been a tendency to develop a cracked engine block. In most cases, this has required a replacement engine as a cracked engine block is a serious repair. Another less serious problem is the sun visor coming apart. While a minor repair, driving without a sun visor can be dangerous. Our team of experts are skilled at engine and visor replacements so don't hesitate to book an appointment if you are having problems with your Honda Civic.
