Hi all, Had a mainly brilliant almost 2 years in the Accord. Love driving it but as some of you may have seen, I've recently had an issue with it cutting out. Since a software update, shes been fine. However I've decided to change it for a brand new Civic 1.6 I-DTEC Sport. So its my 4th Honda, Prelude 2.3, FN2 Type-R, Accord dtec and very soon, Civic. Got a great deal at Honda including absorbing the negative equity in the Accord into the new deal. Also, negotiated to swap the daft standard black wheels for the ones on the EX+, supaguard, 5 years servicing, mats, 1/2 tank fuel, and free paint upgrade (you have to pay for white!!!!) Its white, manual and has a reversing camera, front and rear sensors and large touch screen thing for audio and telephone. I didn't pay the £600 for the additional Garmin Navigation app as I can get a TomTom for £100 or just use my phone. Test drove one last week and I was very impressed by the engine and overall car, for a 1.6 with about 120 BHP, it has some shove. Not as good below 2k and up in high revs as the 2.2 in the Accord, but keep it in the power band and it goes well, its also meant to achieve some very impressive MPG figures and no tax!. It also felt plenty big enough and didn't seam like a downgrade. Only slightly negative thing to report is that the seat height is rather high, whereas in the Accord we sit quite low. But I will get used to that. Im looking forward to having a hatch again, the saloon is so restrictive in terms of getting large stuff in, I even had to borrow a friends 3 door golf last weekend to pickup some stuff. I think if i'd bought the estate, I would probably be staying put now. I pick it up next weekend so a little wait, but I'm sure it will be worth it. Very excited, never owned a new car! All in all very pleased to make the change, Ill miss the slightly softer ride of the Accord and the part leather seats, but Im really excited to move to a Civic. Oh yes, and thanks for all the input and guidance on here, you've been amazing as I've come to expect with Honda owners forums over the years!!!!!!
