Thumbs up Just bought my first FE vehicle

Today i purchased a 1998 5-s Honda Civc HX with all stock equipment, 161k miles, and a GORGEOUS interior and exterior. This site was pretty much the driving force for me looking for a new car with better FE. My old car was a 97 Toyota 4-runner, and although it is a super dependable car, it was time for something that doesn't drain my bank account every month just to keep fueled.

I hope to become an active member of this community, and learn all about the potential of my new car!

One of the best combinations of FE and drive-ability ever made.

Thanks, I had to set up a craigslist RSS feed that notifies me as soon as an HX was posted in my area. I was able to call within 5 minutes of the posting and beat out 20 other people that called after me. I missed out on a really good deal on a 93 VX, so i was happy i was able to get this HX for such a great price.

Congrats. My first P&G was slightly stressful and mildly annoying for me.

My first EOC was exhilirating, though, as was my first bump start.
