“I had been looking for Honda Civic 1.6 Vtec Sport for...”

Written on: 26/07/2010

I had been looking for Honda Civic 1.6 Vtec Sport for months and finaly got ahold of one.. i had to drive over 2 hours away from were i live and the wait was finaly over, i sat in a 2005 (05 plate model in silver with 41k on clock for £5995). I was all excited, i switched the engine on and it sounded good for a stock exhaust ( twin exhaust backbox ) i then drove down the road and i couldnt help but feel dissapointed, it didnt feel particualy fast for a 1.6, although it did go through the gears nicely and the gearbox was pretty cool, but compared to a new cars ( i.e a vauxhall astra) it just isnt in the same league, it feels dated and old, the car felt long and big, there was alot of room in the back though lots of space! it has a reasonable sized boot.. other things i didnt like was the brakes, the car has just recently passed its MOT and i had to apply alot of pressure onto the brakes for them to actualy work! the brakes were not good! the steering wheel was to " in your face " BIG! i didnt realy like the seats that much either, they dont hold you in place very good and they dont look very nice, they are pretty comfotable though. This is a hard car to get ahold of especialy one that hasnt been abused and ragged about so if you are in the market looking for one.. do look around! alot of boy racers have had there hands on them and alot of them go for auctions and have been involved in accidents!

Not overall impressed with this car and feel dissapointed! 6/10
