I don't currently own a civic but I'm after one. Trying to sell my Celica GT4 don't want to but it's a case of having to now I have a 50 miles round trip to work each day! The Celica isn't the most fuel economic lol
She's been good to me in all honesty - god old Jap metal!
The problems I had were the SSS suspension went about 62k which is normal which cost me over 700 (imported from Japan as Toyota wanted 1300 just for parts), had problems with the brakes but that was due to bent drive flange and took me forever! to figure that one out! The turbo went on her about a year after I had her but that was because whoever had it before me had changed the turbo to the model before turbo and mine was running too higher boost for the older turbo to deal with - Mine was over 1bar and the most a CT26 can take is about .8. So changed that back to a CT20B like it should be
Apart from that she's been a gem and continues to be! *touch wood*
