2004 Honda Civic SiR 2.0 i-VTEC from North America
Rock solid and a blast to drive
Nothing so far ;)
Got the car about 1 month ago, has 180 000km on it. So far so good. This one has been well maintained, so it still feels like a brand new Honda right off the lot. The K20 is not the most powerful, but it's a blast to rev and consumes no oil whatsoever.
Handling is this car's strong point; it's a real go-kart. Steering is sharp and that dash mounted shifter is slick and a very cool feature that gets your friends talking when they get in.
I've had to change an engine mount since I've had it; cost me about 200$ for an original Honda mount installed. The rest is just rock solid.
I love the cargo space this thing offers when the rear seats are folded down, and the fuel economy is adequate considering this is a performance oriented car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
