2006 Honda Civic Recalls
Honda recalled certain compressed natural gas (CNG) Civic vehicles to add insulation to the rear seat back. In the event of an interior fire, the CNG tank could become compromised due to uneven heating, preventing the pressure relief safety device from functioning as designed. If the tank heats and does not vent the contents, the tank could rupture and explode. Dealers will install the insulation to help protect the tank from uneven heating.
Honda is recalling 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG models to address a concern about the excessive lubricant used for the telescoping steering column, which may drip onto and damage the brake light switch. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative and the shifter may not release from the "Park" position. Honda will replace the brake light switch and install a protective cover over the brake light switch free of charge.
Honda recalled certain 2006-2007 Civic vehicles for a mounting problem of a sealing O-ring on the rear anti-lock brake system speed sensors. If installed incorrectly, the O-ring will not seal properly, allowing contamination past it and possibly damaging the rear wheel bearings. There is potential for a rear wheel to come off the vehicle if the bearing is worn severely enough. Dealers will inspect the rear anti-lock brake system sensors for proper installation and the rear wheel bearings for damaged parts. Repairs will be made to prevent contamination entry, and to replace any damaged components.

I honestly have had very few problems with my car - the only gripe I have is that it didn't take long for some lights to burn out. Difficult ones to replace (of course) - the first was the gearshift light, then the mph/km and mileage reset button. I was able to replace the gearshift light (it was a blown fuse) but not sure how to replace the mph/km light and today (my car is nearly five years...
