Hi all,
I am currently looking to buy a 2006 civic ex cdti from a main dealer. I have seen one at my local dealer in Plymouth with 70,000 miles on the clock.The asking price was £7495 but managed to get him down to £7000, I have put a holding deposit down as it wont be in till to the end of the month. What should I be looking for faults wise when I go and test drive this car, and how thorough are hondas checks.

Test drove a 2009 model and if I had the cash would have bought it. Great car and awesome drive.

Appreciate your replies.

Just recently between in the same boat although not a main dealer.

The main thing is the clutch is what I've discovered. Check that it isn't slipping by accelerating from a slow speed in 4th on a gradient and check that there's no increase in engine speed without any increase in vehicle speed.

Other than that I guess it's just as any other used car. Check oil and coolant condition, tyre wear pattern, everything is functional etc.
