thanks for jogging my memory - I noticed slight wear on one of my rear tires and have been meaning to take it in to the dealer to see what they say.

psyshack -

Would a used previous-generation Civic Coupe HX + manual transmission be a "good enough" Honda in your eyes? The problem would be finding one with low mileage, I think.

I know where ones at. My buddy that owns the 06 Coupe. His wife drives a HX, MT. Last year they where produced. Its red and a very clean car. I for the life of me do not know why he didn't take it to Germany. It has like 40k miles on it and looks just like a brand new car. I would purchase it in a heart beat if it was ever to be offered for sale.

We love our Acura TSX. One of the best purchases we've ever made as far as a car.

If you don't like your Honda, get a Yaris or a Prius. But, shack, maybe you really are ready for a Ford.

I gave up on honda after ignorantly buying an 02 TL-s. Beautiful car, impossible transmission. And it turns out that honda builds a lot of crummy transmissions in a lot of different models. I hate honda simply because I lost 2 grand by buying one of there junkers. Need I mention the 5.5 hour valve adjustment. Really honda, get a life! I'll take my orphaned saturn and my chances. At least when it munches a motor mount it won't cost $200

that is the main reason why i will never buy a honda or toyota. sure they may seem reliable untill they break then it cost an arm and a leg to pay for a part... while my GM car and truck sure somehting may break but meh part is cheap so whoopey do. most of the time i can get to everyhting with standard hand tools so it takes alot less time.

lol my dad already has his mind set on buying a manual ford focus soon. epa says 37 mpg so i bet if you tried to save gas you could easily see
40+

Ahem ...or higher . Low to mid 40's seem to be effortless - 50's are within reach with some ...but if the build quality of a modern Civic is bothersome get ready for a shiz storm by buying a Ford ! Yes they have a bad rap Yes they are improving BUT they're quite a ways into the backwoods and its going to be awhile before the Quality is*truly* Job1 . As an aside "they have this real great rebate"

I had two nissans, then a sunfire, then a acura, now a saturn. Guess which one was the best, most dependable, lowest maintenance, least cost of ownership.
