Smile Hi there....

I have jumped from the Ford Galaxy forum to this one after 5 years of bus driving.
I think I deserve something a bit more car like seeing as I no longer require the extra 2 seats at the rear.
I live in Rush Green, just outside of Romford in Essex and decided to get a Civic for a number of reasons.

1. The looks
2. The unbelieveable performance of the 2.2 CTDI (Never drove the petrol mind you)
3. Fuel Economy
4. Honda's reputation for Reliability
5. Big boot space
6. The digital dashboard
7. Fuel Emissions / Road Tax
8. The looks

I've had it a few weeks now and I'm can forgive it for it's flaws.

1) Creaks coming from the passenger side
2) Smaller fuel tank than Galaxy means I fill it up more than once a month

Nonetheless, I am totally pursuaded that I did the righ thing (until I get to the 500 service I was quoted on this car).

First of all Welcome to Civinfo

Bit of a difference car wise from Galaxy to Civic, but a good choice

Glad to hear you are enjoying it and that it's making you happy

Yea the flaws are just something we have to live with, sadly

Good to have you around

Welcome to the forum.
As for the problems,I hope all of mine are behind me now.
One way to look at it is,you won't have the car forever.
Enjoy it.
