I bought my Civic to be a runaround and save wear tear and supermarket dings on my Jaguar. So how am I getting on ?? The cheap motor is no longer cheap after paying for suspension repairs , new cam belt , all the evidence is that it had not been changed in 138000 miles ,curing oil leaks.All that needs to be done now is a noisy gearbox bearing ,need to find someone to do that , all contacts have done a runner. The car itself is economical , nippy and corners like the original mini but I have no love for it (yet),the interior is dark and horrible. Seats are a little better than a park bench but my posterior has been spoiled with Jeep and Jaguar seats. Its early days yet and the other half says I cannot change it,yet,!!!!
