Review of "Honda Civic 1.8"
The Honda Civic 1.8 VTi S reg. You have got to love it. The clean lines, the amazing acceleration, the comfy ride. All in all a fabulous car. We owned this car for 3 years and reluctantly traded it in. Fuel consumption wasn't brilliant but for 165 bhp what do you expect!LOOKS
Unless your a honda lover I guess you would think it looks like a grandads car. But to me the clean lines and almost mean looking front end just added to the class of the car. The car we had was red, not metallic, just red and it looked when polished absolutely amazing. The paint never faded and it just glistened. The roomy interior with half leather looked classy and expensive. For long journeys you could just sit there comfortably and watch the world pass by.
After the 3 years we had it it never suffered from any mechanical problems. Just one small problem with the sun roof leaking. It started every time and after doing 13000 miles a year the engine still purred. 100% for Honda engineering.
The Honda is built like a tank. We never had any crashes but the ride and feel of the civic make you feel extremely safe. The NCAP rating i think is 4 stars.
You will fit 5 men in this car and it is comfortable on long journeys.
Around the town buy a small car. The steering is quite heavy and the turning circle is tiny. Forget 3 point turn try 5. But out of town you couldn't find a more easy handling car. Just wait for that Vitec to kick in over 5000 rpm. It's like a bullet. For 300 miles combined you're looking at £30-£35 petrol. Which isn't bad but take it in the town and it guzzles petrol!
Honda were brilliant in every way but we only saw them at services and the one water leak, which was fixed in a day.
