Fast and low cost car
The plastic ending of tank cap's wire is broken. Then was -30C cold.
This is second car for my wife. It was from Japan with RHD. Yes, in Russia there are LHD and RHD cars.
I have also a Nissan Skyline V35 (215 hp) with automatic transmission.
That I like : Civic 1.7 130hp with manual transmission has the same 1-100km/h acceleration as the Skyline 215hp. After 100 kmh Skyline is faster.
Civic is very gas economical. It needs 5L/100 km of regular petrol outside the city and 7.5L in the city.
If driving at very economical mode (max 70 km/hour) outside the city we had 4.3L for Civic and 6.5L at Skyline (premium petrol).
Civic has roomy salon.
For 2 years (36000 km) I changed only engine oil and air filter at service. Seems that brake pads are from factory and only 50% used.
That I don't like:
Hard suspension. Especially on Russian roads.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
