    Post your Gas Mileage : Calculated

    35.6 MPG (US) or 6.6L per 100KM on my 2007 Civic 5sp manual. That's city and hwy, driving like Grandma.

    Any cars you regret buying? - My '14 CR-V experience

    Thanks for the writeup–I appreciate the detail. I'm a Honda shill, and am currently driving a 2007 Civic 5 sp manual. I've also complained about the following, and concur it's an unusable power range:

    Pressure washer choices

    Those are slick, and would have come in handy about 10yrs ago when I started pressure washing a large exposed aggragate driveway. O.O I was expecting ~$500 for the rotary attachment, lists as $150USD which is better than expected.

    Pressure washer choices

    I bought a Karcher with Honda GC engine in 2009, and it's been excellent. I used an electric for a short period and not worth the aggravation, esp for an exposed aggregate driveway.

    2007 Honda Civic - new acquisition

    1972 is when the first gen Civic arrived on the scene (Britain, from what I understand). 2022 marks 50 yrs - so we're due for a special anniversary edition (with a bigger engine hopefully lol).

    2007 Honda Civic - new acquisition

    It's probably my preferred for the Civic. I was thinking it might be something stuck in motor too.

    I turned 48 today, at what age did you start to feel old?

    I tell young people this, but youth is wasted on the young. Take care of yourself early, because there's much living to be had at age 50+.

    I turned 48 today, at what age did you start to feel old?

    I'm past 50 and notice some random aches and pains, but mostly not as sharp as I used to be. Maybe my mind is more cluttered but definitely lose things more easily, and am more scatter-brained.

    2007 Honda Civic - new acquisition

    I didn't know about the Type S CSX - 200hp 6sp is much more sensible. Although gas is currently ~$5.85 USG, so economical helps.

    2007 Honda Civic - new acquisition

    In June of this year (2021) I purchased an original owner 2007 Civic EX 5sp, 201K KM's. I've driven it about 8K KM's so far. This vehicle has been dealer serviced and I expected it to easily soar past 400K. Cons: - Anemic engine with torque only in 4K-6K range (which isn't useful) - Plastic...

    2004 Sienna headgasket leaking.

    Thanks for the advice. I hadn't heard of a leaking water plate ... based on the pic I took it seemed to be weeping from headgasket; IE I couldn't see anything above it. But I'll take another look with more light. EDIT. I took off top plastic valve cover bezel and looked around with a flashlight...

    2004 Sienna headgasket leaking.

    Correct, it's a technical death knell. I will be doing that ... maybe one of the stop leak products will help a bit too.
