    Are the 2006 CR-V brake pads (front and rear) ceramic, or semi-
    metallic, or ?

    Is there a recommended alternate brand for the OEM pads from the Honda
    dealership, or should I just go to the dealer and buy what they have ?

    buy oem. buy online oem if you don't like your local dealer price. oem
    honda pads are very fade resistant, about the same price as aftermarket,
    come with all the shims you need, and a little sachet of anti-squeal.
    and they don't wreck your disk or create too much brake dust.

    if you absolutely /have/ to go aftermarket, akebono ceramics are good.

    I have heard that Honda uses relatively soft pads and rotors to keep
    noise down and that you shouldn't use ceramic pads.

    where did you "hear" this from??? clearly not from anyone who actually
    knows what they're talking about or you wouldn't be wrong on both counts.
