I need a new car and had a free hour this afternoon, so went for a test drive in an 08 plated Civic 2.2 diesel. I'm a self employed musician/guitar teacher and use the car for work 5/6 days per week doing just under 20k miles a year 60% or so are on the motorway.
I need something that I can carry a few guitars, big amp and big effects pedal setup in so the tardis like Civic fits the bill. I loved how it drove, but a petrolhead I am not, I drive a Mitsubishi space star and have only really driven vans or cheap small runarounds previously-what are peoples opinions of the car? Reliability, economy, other options? I managed 47.1 mpg on the 5 mile test drive fwiw. Did I mention that I loved it?:-)
Oh an it was for sale for 8k
