I want a Civic and joined to get the Lowdown.

Hi,

My name is Sam. I currently drive a Ford Cougar which I love but is very thirsty! Early next year my commute is going to become around 35-40miles a day so unfortunately the Cougar has to go. My requirements when choosing what car to get were basically - moon on a stick, please! Then I saw a review for the 2.2 diesel Civic Quick, good fuel economy, relatively cheap tax and insurance and looks fantastic!

So through the wonders of Google, I found this site and joined up to find out the good, the bad and the ugly of owning a Civic.

So thats my hello

Yep, a silver 2.2 is the way to go.
plus a Civinfo sticker when you feel up to it

Thanks for the welcome.

I'll be buying nearly new probably so I probably have less choice of colour. To be honest I like all the Honda colours (less keen on the Champagne Silver though). My current car is silver and the Civic does look good (plus silver doesn't show the muck quite as quick!). If I had a choice the heart says black but the head says red or silver

Oh and when I get one a sticker is a definite possibility (I have owner club stickers in my Cougar).

You dont have to wait until you get the Civic before you get a sticker though Sam, not sure it would suit the Cougar but would give you access to the 'other' areas of the site

Hi welcome Sam

The Civic is a great car. If mileage high Diesel is the way to go. However the petrol is a great engine and very happy with it. For my low mileage couldn't justify the increased purchase price and greater servicing cost. The Petrol also warms up much quicker and the heater is working in a few minutes. Either way great cars - you won't be disappointed

Welcome sam,

As the guys say if you cover a fair distance each day the diesel may be the better engine choice

Look at Galaxy Grey aswell - looks stunning when clean and the sun just bounces off it and hides the dirt fairly well when required aswell

good luck with your hunt

Yeh, red is definately the colour, but sod the fuel economy and get a Type R.

Although the 2.2 Type S is very good also!!!!
