Default 2006 Civic road noise?

Hi.

Consumer Reports listed "road noise" as one of the "cons" about the 2006
Civic (even though they gave it their highest overall rating). Can any
anyone out there share their first hand experiences? I am interested in
this car, but I do want a quiet car. Thanks.

Not as quiet as Accord but better than Mazda 3, that's my observation.

The car CR reported on may of had performance tires. They tend to howl a
bit.
They are a harder rubber. Inquire as to what tires on the vehicle you
are interested in.

Most performance tires I have seen and driven on were made of a softer
compound.

Road noise is generally caused by the tires, especially if the tires are the
least bit aggressive. Most Hondas come with all-weather tires. Check with
the dealer to see if a low cost swap off is available when you buy the car.

In any case, test drive a similar car. Consumer Reports may have gotten one
that annoyed that particular set of drivers. Take their rating and
nit-picking with a grain of salt.

For what it's worth, my '04 Accord sedan is far quieter than my '97 Civic
sedan (and I had what were allegedly quiet tires on it). I know that a '97
is quite a bit older than an '06. Unless they've really quieted the Civic
since then, I would stay away from it if you're looking for a quiet car.

The civic has been completely redesigned twice since 97, so yes I would say
they have really changed it....
I'm sure the 06 civic would probably be pretty much on par with your 04
accord..

Take it out for a test drive.

That is realy the only way u will know. I have a 94 civic modified.
noisy as it can get, a 98 civic 4 door and it's not that bad, but u get
noise, and a 04 civic and it is much quiter then the other two.

I would assume it is a quiet car unless honda took one step forward, and
then two steps back.

We test drove the hybrid and bought an Accord hybrid based on size and
features. Noise was not an issue so I suspece Civic was reasonable.

If you want something quieter, Toyota Corolla would be the way to go, but a
little boring to drive.
