Hi Everyone !
I'm a newcomer on this site, and glad to be here reading from all of you.
I don't have yet a Civic but planing to buy one.
For now, I have a Accord, 2.0L, automatic gearbox, 1995, that I hown since 1997, 260.000 km without any troubles
I hope to do the same with the Civic.
I'll probably buy a 1.8 I-Shift, as in Paris suburbs I can't stand manual transmission anymore.
I'm wondering why they didn't fit a modern automatic gearbox, tiptronic style or whatever, on both 1.8 and 2.2 iCDTI, as other car makers do
My Honda dealer told me it was related to the fact that automatic cars use more fuel, therefor more pollution, than I-Shift type cars, and with the new regulations coming they prefered the I-Shift solution.
Any informations ?
BTW, I live in Paris (France) suburbs.
