I recently paid my old car off and figured while I still have a ton equity in it I would buy a new one, basically a big step up for me. I ended up getting a new Honda Civic Touring. It has a ton of options and can get up to 42 mpg. I have it up to 37 right now. That is part city, part interstate. It has plenty of get up and go due to the turbo. Its not my dream ride but it gets me closer to my goal. My wife said I could have my dream car when I retire. She also said I could have a dog when I turn 50. I don't see no dog. So I gotta do what I can. All around I am pretty jacked.



You are so kind.

I've had many vehicles, both foreign and domestic- my current vehicle is a 2005 Honda Civic, and it has been hands down the most reliable and efficient car I've driven. I would love to upgrade to a new model, but really have no reason except to stop the drool from forming when I see what you are driving now! I'm at nearly 200K and the only problems I have is some minor body damage from being side-swiped (hit & run on the day of the Trump rally here in Seattle), and a bunch of crumbs on the passenger seat where my GF nests.

Nice car, cute little camper too. The camper would make a good bug out bag.

The car I sold was a 2013 Honda Civic. I was going to trade it in but they were going to low ball me 3 grand. I know the dealership has to make money, but that car was spotless and had only 62000 miles on it.

You are correct it is sorta a camper/bug out. If shtf we are hooking it up to the truck and heading north or south depends where the poop hit.

Sounds like you need a new wife, not a new car.

Good looking car! I'm more of the jacked-up Jeep sort of guy, myself, but alas, I can't afford either. C'est la vie.

That's pretty slick, bud


You can always modify it "on the sly" *wink wink*...yeah honey, im just taking it in for a tune up, im gonna have them make a few minor adjustments so it will be more "economical".

(economical with your time, because it gets you places faster... You never said economical with fuel or money...)

We will be doing some mods but not until the warrantee is up. Already look up some parts. Would like to make it into a sleeper.
