Just wanted to add to the list, my 2006 Civic LX just got a cracked block. Started smelling coolant outside of the car. Never overheated, but checked under the hood to see a pinhole stream of water coming out of the front. Diagnosed by my mechanic today, who told me about the extended warranty. Called Honda, no sympathy. Miles are at about 160K, bought the car almost 3 years ago. Plan to replace with used engine if it can be done cheap enough to make it worth it. The good news is my previous civic (‘95) is still running strong for my sister at 320K+ miles. Took a risk with the ‘06, not sure it was worth it.
