£2000 insurance premium for a 1.6 Civic is crazy... unless you're a teenager or had a previous driving ban etc.
32 years old (nearly). Rode a motorbike since 22, got my car license aged 28 (Had a kid, so got nagged by the wife to get one lol). No criminal activity or bans or speeding. Clean bike and car license. Had a prang back in 2012/13 on the bike but was 100% other drivers fault.
It's about £2k I am being quoted. Might be where I live, and its fully comp, not TPFT. New build estate and they don't have car crime stats - so they assume the worst and consider it to be as hostile as Syria. Hell, my crappy old 2007 banger was nearly £1k and the insurance company agreed with the car's value of £50 lol.
Sasquartch - Bit cheeky of Honda to bang on about driving styles for the DPF when it doesn't even tell you when it is happening to give it some beans. Luckily I am a "what's that noise" driver. My mechanic hates me. Every time I give my car to him he wonders what butterfly wings I heard pass by lol.
That's my only concern really, the two owners did 26k and 14k, 3 years each. Seems a little low, but the test drive went fine and it seemed smooth and had power - though a go-kart powered by tortoises will feel fast compared to my little 1.25 petrol.
If the DPF was knackered would a 5 mile test drive ping up the ole management lights etc? I guess my huge mileage will help given if it is knackered I will spot it within a week and chuck the keys back under lemon law stuff.
Cheers everyone for your input - very much appreciated.
