Greetings from Portugal

Hello Civic fans!

Since last month, I am the happy owner of a Civic 2.2 iCTDI Sport

So far I have total of 3000 kms and this is my evaluation

Most happy with:
The design
The interior space
The engine

Not so happy with:
The car key (It's huuuge)
The diesel consumption. I know I only have 3000 kms but even so I think 40 mpg isn't that economic:
- I don't have an agressive driving (It is very rare to go beyond 2500 rpm)
- Most part of the kms where made on highway
- My previous diesel car was an Audi Avant 1.9TDi, I also bought it newand started at 44 mpg, never more than 42 and normally did 45.

What do you think? Shoud I just wait and the mpg will go up, or shoud I go to the Honda dealer and ask them to check it?

Thanks to all

Welcome to the forum!

Your mpg will improve in time as the engine gets run in fully.

Hi and welcome to the place

The MPG will improve over time as 3000km is not many and the engine will get better

Hi and welcome to civinfo.

As other have said your MPG will get better the more miles you do.
