I have been lurking on here for a while as I have been looking for a replacement for my '57 Vauxhall Astra 1.6T SRi :
Its been a good car. I have owned it for over three and a half years, which is the longest I have ever owned a car. I commute 50 miles a day for work so need something cheaper to run.
I decided to go for a Honda Civic after researching on the internet extensively.
I just put a deposit down on a '57 Honda Civic 2.2 i-CTDi EX 5dr in Black.
It does have high mileage - 101,000 and i'm a little worried about the clutch/DMF failing, battery draining, leaking into the boot or sunroof blinds/mirrors not working after reading some horror stories.
But I decided that if you research ANY car on the internet, you will find horror stories.
The Civic I have found has high spec (all the usual EX spec extras) and seems mechanically ok. I'm taking out a 12 month warranty just in case.
I did notice a Civinfo sticker in the back window, so I wonder if the previous owner is on here? I'm a bit worried in case they are and they tell me it had loads of problems...
Anyway, I pick the new car up on Saturday 18th, I can't wait! Thanks for reading!
