It will be interesting to see. There are some very early '55' platers out there, so on a three year change cycle, they'd be due a new one.

That's what I was thinking. The only snag is that not a lot of owners who had an early Civ are going for another one.

I have driven both civics....

And from what I instantly noticed is that the 09 is much quiter on the inside, has more refined suspensions and there are no rattles when hitting a bump...

Also the interior fabrics are new and better looking...

Finally I decided to go for the 09 model... so much better

Rattles are very normal for cars on our roads.....

Its just a matter of a year or so hehehe....

My old car just sounds like a crystal charm while on the road

I like the idea of the softer suspension on the 09 Civics, mine is very hard.
