2.2 70k in 12 months

Well i'm glad its a company car and i'm not paying the bills! Having just had its 4th set of discs and pads all round I think the lease company will be getting hit for serious costs. Front tyre wear is good at 21k and the rears lasted over 40k. It needs a litre of oil every 12k (just before service). As every one else has found fuel is being drunk at around 39MPG, which isnt great but the way I drive I think a petrol would be low 20's. No faults have occures. Clutch still going strong. Am I glad I picked it - yes. Why would you pick a focus for the same money. Should be interesting over the next 12 months a I get near to 150k

Any issues apart from the usual wear and tear? Nice collection of stone chips?

That is some mileage in a year

Good to hear it's doing well, though

Anything more to report?

This must be one of the highest mileage Civics on the forum.

I'm a health and safety manager, covering from north wales upto fort william. Lots of stone chips, broken front fog, heavy wear on leather around steering wheel. Am curious to see when something big breaks- It should have 210k on it when I hand it back. Will it make it ? But no major issues - oh yeah rubber around door comes off every now and then, stereo shuts off after about 4hours constant use (discs get roasting hot). Will get another one next time- cheap on car tax and love the dash- loads of buttons to press when stuck in traffic jams etc
