first day in 2011 civic 1.4 vtech se!!!!!!!!
i picked her up this morning and as i pulled in to honda i saw this silver civic parked up and i thought that cant be mine because it has sports grill and different alloys.i asked him and he said yes.it was mint.apparantly my dealer told me that honda have made this standard on all se models now.the wheels lokk so much better than them 16 inch wheels and the sports grill really does set the car off.ill put some pics on tomoz because just got bk after being out driving all day,
anyways this car is such a fantastic and fun car to drive.it just glues to the corners.i havent put me foot down yet.im being carefull for the first few hundred miles but you can tell that even tho its only a 1.4 engine it does want to go.the engine noise is great.its quiet when you want it and lovely and smooth.the gearbox is lovely and smooth.the sound system is brill compared to my previous nissan qashqai.it drives more like a 1.6 car than a 1.4 car.very impressed.ive heard alot of people complaining about rattles.i dont know if its just me but im sure i can hear a slight rattle on the rear of the car somewhere but neva mind lol!!!!the 90 degree rear doors opening is great for my son getting in and out.the boot is huge.lovely and comfortable to drive.it even had half swade interior too which is lovely.i think i need some matts because bought some but dont fit.i think i need genuine tailored matts.overall i think its a fun,practical,cheap to run car.ok its not a type r engine but its a fun little engine that is enough for me.very very impressed!!!!!!!!big thumbs up for honda for me!!!will post pics tomoz.too dark now lol!!!!!!!! nothing bad to say about my civic really.
