  1. replace air filter

    You're right. OEM filter comes nicely wrapped in plastic wrap, all oiled up, better filter pleat construction and plastic siding. Blows the flimsy Fram product in its flimsy cardboard box out of the water.
  2. Scotty says "Buy the 2.0 Civic over the Turbo".

    One Linkedin profile for the name Scotty Kilmer with his profile picture on it says he got a MSc in Anthropology from the University of Illinois (UIUC) which is a prestigious university. He supposedly got his bachelors at York university in Toronto which is a decent university. He's more...
  3. Scotty says "Buy the 2.0 Civic over the Turbo".

    I'm still waiting for the 1.5T horror stories and fuel dilution reports to turn into stories of 1.5T's seizing up on the highway and leaving someone stranded, or a blown CVT on the CivicX, etc.... I've heard no great reports so far other than the rare limp mode encounters. Lol I remember when...
  4. Scotty says "Buy the 2.0 Civic over the Turbo".

    A lot of people seem to watch a few Kilmer rants and think he's an old redneck fart who lives in a ratpack garage somewhere in Texas lol. He's got a Masters degree (and obviously has a Bachelors as well) from the University of Illinois (I think) - no small achievement- He's a creative, cultured...
  5. Features You May Not Be Aware Of...

    Most underrated feature of these cars is the agile handling assist. No one seems to know it exists on their Civic.
  6. Does keyless entry fob drain battery?

    Yes, holding it next to the start button uses the passive RFID feature of the fob, sort of like the immobilizer chips installed in the mechanical keys of cars from the early 2000s The MM warns you well ahead of time before the battery totally runs out of juice. Also, please remember that the...
  7. Rear Suspension Clunking

    I didn't read the full thread history, but reading the words clunking sound and suspension rang a bell in my head. One of my rear struts blew without my notice. I started to hear a thunking sound in the back every time I went over a bump, I blew it off as the spare tire having loosened in its...
  8. Funny Comments People Have Made About Your Car

    A would be thief who was caught in the act with my ex 1.5L Touring sedan looked at me and said "that's a sweet looking ride for sure." This was back in 2018 when there weren't as many of these on the road as there are today.
  9. Civic Easter Egg - did you receive the rubber pad ?

    Taking in the image printed on the back of my ex 1.5T Touring sedan's mat, I got a swell of pride as I am loyal to the big H
  10. Will it never end?!?!?

    Several parts of Canada are getting a light dusting today/tomorrow
  11. Does keyless entry fob drain battery?

    BTW, an aside, stock battery from the remote, expect 2 years of life with average use.
  12. 2016 AC Granaded dealer $3000+ to fix

    I too noticed this gurgling sound later during ownership when I had my 1.5T touring. Never made much of it. I have to agree with the people who say that was a rather benevolent and generous action from Honda Mfg Canada. $800 in total repairs for an AC failure is not that much. That kind of...
  13. S2000 owners question about genuine parts

    I know there's a lot of S2000 owners here on this forum. Considering buying one of the newer versions that were made. The major parts supplier in Canada that I know of is Toronto Honda Parts. They seem to sell S2000 parts that you can choose from fiches of the car's various modules. Does...
  14. Changing steering

    I parted with my 1.5L Touring sedan, and for the 60k kms I had it, it drove dead straight. Never had the problems you've mentioned. Steering tension was even all throughout its life.
  15. RIVAL Zupra - Up Close!!

    More than just the gear selector screams BMW. If you've owned or been in a couple of the new ones, that control layout screams BMW. The shape of the nav screen, the air con and steering wheel button shapes are reminiscent of the older X5's and the new 3 series interior. This is probably a bad...
  16. Thank you 1.5L Touring W.O.P.

    I considered the CTR at one point, but finding one in stock is a dog of a task, and highway comfort is a bit of a concern. I need at least 8 way power seats, comfy leather, and tilt telescopic steering wheel. I may end up buying something that doesn't have the Honda sensing features that come...
  17. Thank you 1.5L Touring W.O.P.

    Oh I forgot to mention in the original post, one rear strut had to be replaced under warranty. No biggie. Still was a great car. :D
  18. Thank you 1.5L Touring W.O.P.

    Precisely speaking, the proximity sensor would stop working one minute after the last interaction with the system with the keyfob or any of the door unlock buttons. The unlock pad on the inside of the door handle and the lock button on the outside were electrically functional. But if you walked...
  19. Thank you 1.5L Touring W.O.P.

    I gave off my 2017 W.O.P. 1.5T Touring sedan to a relative and am moving on and buying another car. It served magnificently. 40k miles and endured 3 of North America's harshest winters with aplomb. The only problems I encountered during ownership: BCM had to be replaced because the proximity...
  20. The yellow monster...

    Yes. Rinsing car over with warm water is all that's needed to take it off.
