  1. Transmission 07 Civic i-Shift EX - Whine, Judder/Wheel Spin/Hesitation & Temp Gauge Issue

    Engines and Transmission (8G)
    Hi all, I bought a 2007 Honda Civic EX 1.8petrol vtec I-shift (semi-auto) in Nov 2016 privately. It has full service history and done 28000 miles. However, I've noticed some issues since Dec 2016 that are now making me concerned. I’ve taken the car for a full service at a private garage at...

I wonder if it makes sense to buy AT - new 5-gear version available from 2009? I have already driven MT and like to turn it to 6000-7000 rpm. I am curious if...
