Hi everyone just bought a new 2009 Civic Automatic. Love it fantastic drive and love the new front end facelift. Old car was 2003 1.6 Honda Civic Auto, only thing I had to buy in six years was front brake pads, tyres and a brake light bulb in six years.
I am expecting the new one to be every bit as reliable and pleasing as the old. :p It beats the I-Shift in every way, lovely smooth gear change.

Yes totally agree with you, I have had lots of fast manual cars but I now enjoy the laid back Auto's.

Welcome :)
- It's VTEC not VETEC.
- Get some photos up!
- May I ask why automatic?
I could ask why manual! In todays motoring and congestion I feel the auto is more laid back during the trafic jams etc. at 64 years I dont need to be doing 0 - 60 in 4.5 seconds and am happy driving at 70 - 80 mph with a lovely smooth ride.I have had in my younger years Rover 3.5 V8, Datsun 280 ZX and more with manual gearboxes and loved them all but I was probably your age then.
Enjoy what you desire at the time.

Car looks really, good, i havent had the pleasure of seeing the new face lift model and i think its a big improvement at the front, just thought there was TOOO much chrome/plastic at the front.

Think the new front will be a popular upgrade to the older models.
