Welcome to the best Car Forum that I know of ...

The information in here - including all the reported 'faults' - was one of the factors in my ultimate choice of car ...

So - now - the question is ... what colour \ extras \ etc. ? ... and why did you choose a 'Spaceship', when there are so many boring cars to choose from ? ...

(Oopppssss - must not prejudice your reply !) ...

Thanks everyone

The car is a 2.2cdti sport in silver. 06 plate with 21,000 on the clock. I picked the Civic because I wanted something different from the usual Golf/Astra/Focus.

I do alot of miles (Manchester to Liverpool and back everyday about 65 miles) so I really wanted the 2.2cdti for the extra mpg

I had a lot of trouble finding a diesel in my area for a price I could afford, but eventually found one from a Honda dealership. Paid £8500 including my beat up Clio so not too bad.


Dead excited, picking it up Friday!
