Just wondering what car is better of if there is such a thing. I have heard alot from VX owners and I am one but I have heard very little from HX owners. I know the Auto tranny HX's suck and are very problematic.
Any other things to look out for in the hx? What kind of mileage do HX owners get also are the vx and hx trannys interchangeable? From what I have read the VX tranny is higher geared meaning lower rpm at higher speeds....
If you have a HX or know about them please chime in and share your thoughts.
I dunno it's just weird for me that everything went at around the same time.. I didn't have a hole in the muffler...if I did I would of just put another cheap *** muffler...My exaust manifold cracked.. When they opened it up it was done..
My 5 month old used 99 HX MT is running fine at 103,000 miles and gets usually 42.5 mpg weekly tanks on 2 days city 5 days hwy driving at 65 mph no hypermiling in Houston Winters of 60 F to 75 F weather.
My HX at 217,000 miles with a CX tranny gets 39mpg on the highway in winter going 80mph back and forth between stillwater and Tulsa. I got 55mpg in Houston last summer keeping it around 65mph.
I haven't had any problems with reliability and I think all civics are pretty slow so who cares about the extra 18hp? I personally want a VX engine/tranny in an HX (I don't like the shoe-like look of 92-95 hatchbacks).
