straight to the point,we are looking at getting an 07 to 09 plate civic,not sure if petrol or diesel would be best for us,so I decided to ask the experts
we looked at a 57 plate 1.8vtec ex in Milano yesterday(gen 7 ?) 82k on the clock and the stone chips to back it up
had all the bells and whistles we could wish for,leather,panoramic roof nav,etc,drove well and is up at £6000,dealer will throw in a 2 year rac gold warrenty for the asking price.
may I ask a few questions as we know naff all about civics(or Honda come to that)
I drive a diesel c5 estate company car and having driven diesels for 15 years like the way a diesel drives.....but as a second car(well it would be 3rd after the 9-3 convertible) we would not be doing a big mileage(I would guess 3k or less)
I have looked the diesel engine civics up and it seems the 7th gen diesel civic was not fitted with a dpf
if that's the case,would the diesel civic be happy doing low miles(with a few 20 mile runs to grandkids etc)
what are the things to look for when viewing a civic.
