  1. Took the Civic out on a back road....

    Long story short, found myself on a rural mountain road in my base model Civic with the 2.0 engine and CVT. Probably the least enthusiast friendly trim. So you would expect it to be kind of lousy on a back road right? Well wrong. I was shocked at how competent the Honda made their economy trim...
  2. End Lease Early?

    So I currently have a 2018 Honda Civic EX that is on a 3-year lease. The vehicle is currently used as my "commuting" car for going into the city without getting horrendous gas mileage if I use my other car. The plan was to just trade the car in a more well optioned Civic that has the turbo...
  3. What CVT do the 2.0 Civics Have?

    Ive always wondered if the CVT unit in the 2.0 and 1.5 civics are the same or if they are different. Reason im asking is because ive become more aware of my driving habits recently and am starting to realize that I do in fact drive more aggressive than the average joe. I'm not going WOT...
  4. Anyone go from a 2.0 to 1.5 engine?

    Its kinda premature but my lease ends in about a year and I was trying to figure out whether I should buy the car out or not. My Civic doesn't have many miles on it (only 11.3k since March 2018) but thats going to change starting this fall as I am going to rack up the miles on my Civic for long...

  6. Tuned 2.0 0-60 times!

    So today I was bored and found myself at a couple red lights on an empty straight (flat) road so I decided to pull up the speed logic lite app I installed onto the headunit for a 0-60 time just to see how a tuned 2.0 motor performs. I was extremely surprised. On the first run the car was in S...
  7. People were wrong about the 2020 Supra...

    So I watched a couple of videos that dropped today where a lot of people reviewed the 2020 Supra and most of them are overwhelmingly positive. I've seen people hating on this car for a LONG time now and people trash talking it's BMW engine and how it isn't a "real" supra. But from what i'm...
  8. Just drove Civic through a flooded road, it handled it like a champ!!

    So I was on my way home today and I was coming back through a narrower residential street which a lot of people use as a cut through to avoid all the traffic on the main road, and it was raining REALLY heavy and all of a sudden towards the end of the road there was a backup because people were...
  9. 2018 Civic EX Sedan One Year Update!

    So I have officially owned my Civic for a year now and I thought I would make a quick post about my experience with the car so far. I got the car on March 22nd 2018 from Honda of Tysons for around 19.5K out the door and had a pretty great down payment on the lease because I traded in a 2013 Ford...
  10. Post your Civic XI Wishlist

    So, I thought I would start a thread where people can put a "wishlist" of things they would like to see added or improved on the next gen Civic. I know it's still a bit of a ways off but we're far enough into the 10th gen cycle I think to know whats good and whats bad. I'll start: •Standard LED...
  11. CVT quirks

    So I noticed for a while now that when im in a hurry and I start my car and immediately put it in drive to move, the revs go up to 2K rpm automatically and it makes starting off a little jerky because its taking off at 2K rpm. This only happens when I start the car after it's been sitting for a...
  12. My MPG is horrendous

    Ok so I just filled up my car today and I kid you not, my average MPG was 21.6. That number is horrendously low, even if I've been driving this car in mostly suburban and city traffic. The best part is, I don't even drive my car really hard at all. When I am getting up to speed, the max i'll hit...
  13. California's new "loud" Exhaust Law (AB1824) - What are your thoughts?

    As a person who lives on the opposite side of the country in VA you're probably wondering why im concerned about this law. Truth is I feel like as fellow enthusiasts, we should all be concerned about this utterly pointless money grab from the state of California. If some of you don't know...
  14. Came out to my car today and saw this....

    So I came out today to go and get some groceries and I saw a yellowish puddle of oil (I think) coming from my car. I recently had an oil change done at my Local Honda dealer so I suspect they messed up...big time. Would apppriciate it if anyone could give some insight or confirm my suspicions on...
  15. 2019 HRV gets 1.5T in Europe

    Saw an article saying that apparently the U.S is stuck with a 1.8L engine for 2019 while the euro spec gets the 1.5 turbo. Its almost like Honda wants to shoot themselves in the foot and get rid of the HRV. What would make them think U.S buyers are not interested in a better engine? Another...
  16. Revival of the Honda Passport!

    https://jalopnik.com/honda-is-reviving-the-passport-and-this-time-its-not-an-1830641908 This is a bit of old news but I saw this article about Honda bringing back the more off road centric Honda Passport and it honestly looks really promising! They're saying that it will basically bridge the...
  17. RIP Northern VA

    Amazon just announced that their 2nd HQ is coming to Northern VA and NYC. 66 traffic is already a nightmare and now it is about to become quite possibly some of the worst traffic ever because of the new Amazon HQ. Anyone around here commute in this area?
  18. Anyone here see Scotty Kilmer's YouTube channel?

    Honest question - I recently came across this guy on YouTube and I honestly cannot understand why he has such a following and why people actually like this guy. I could probably disprove a lot of the things he says on his channel and not to mention the fact that he seems to dislike everything if...
  19. Why do the stock tires suck?

    So recently its been pretty rainy where I live and I noticed that the Civics Firestone all seasons are awful. When I'm accelerating from a stop in moist conditions (I really don't accelerate that hard) there is a decent amount of wheelspin and it's even worse when I'm turning where the wheels...
  20. Thieves targeting Honda airbags?

    Saw this article on Jalopnik today: https://jalopnik.com/honda-airbags-are-now-a-hot-commodity-for-thieves-1829865469 Basicslly says that for some reason, thieves are specifically targeting Honda airbags even though theres nothing special about them. Kinda weird and makes me wonder what makes...
