Farewell my Civic

By SYF77 on 21 Dec 2009

After 3.5 years of ownership, I bid farewell to my Civic 2.0 today with mixed emotions. It has served me well and I wish to share my ownership experience with fellow car enthusiasts here in Mycarforum.

Even today, the design of the Civic looks attractive to me despite it being launched some 4 years ago. The futuristic dashboard will still continue to be a talking point for the Civic many years down the road. Build quality of the Civic is beyond reproach. The car is well put together with no hint of rattling during the past 3.5 years. Knobs are still solidly in place.

The Civic is fun to drive, responding to the slightest input from the right foot. The K20Z engine is mated to the 5 speed automatic transmission perfectly to deliver creamy smooth performance. Perhaps, the only complaint about the drive is the slightly heavy steering wheel. Road noise insulation could do better as well.

Like most cars, the Civic does have its share of mechanical glitches. The electric motor in the power steering needs to be replaced after one year of ownership as it kept making a loud ‘thud’ sound when maneuvering out of a parking lot.
Overall, I had a pleasant experience with the Civic. It provides an entertaining drive and never fails to crank up every morning. Frankly, i can actually see myself being Civic owner again in years to come.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
