New civic owner

Hi peeps,

I'm picking my first ever civic up on Saturday it's a 2.2i CDTI, on a 56 plate. If anyone can give me some tips on what to look out for problem wise I'd appreciate it, also it needs a new gear knob if some one could post a link on a nice one that would be excellent I've spent a few hours looking but get confused lol, I would like one with the gears on it but not to expensive. Thanks all

Loads of info on here, make sure you check the roof to see if there is rust between the windscreen and the rubber seal.

*Squeeky clutch pedal
*wonky suspension at the back

I am sure that you will be happy though!

Helllo and welcome to mate..

Countless threads on stuff like this but the things you need to look out for is.. Slipping clutch, rusty roof, squeaks here and there and the folding door mirrors (but thats a little fix)

I've had my 2.2 for 2 years in November and I havent experienced anything mayjor (touch wood)


But hope you have a strong will though otherwise you'll spend a small fortune on styling improvements and whatnot on this site!

Rust on the roof (at front top of screen,where roof meets windscreen trim strip) Slipping clutch. Stone chips in paint, especially front end/bonnet.
Original gear knob is expensive if bought from dealer...in fact all gear knobs are expensive IMHO!
