Honda Civic 2.0 i-vtec

Hi guys!, im going to blog about car today...just gonna be simple far as u guys know Malaysian have lots of choice in driving they dream car..but which one is the best? well im here to suggest u guys one of the best u can get from market. It's the Honda Civic FD!...well actually this car has been in market like 7 years ago...but still this car at it's best!.The price not really cheap which it will cost u guys about RM115,000 for the 1.8 and RM130,000 for the 2.0..which monthly installment around RM1300. so this car is quite suitable for people who still single or have family and earn around RM4000 and above monthly. Let me tell u some the details that make this car worth for it's value plus giving you the pleasure of driving =). anyway I would be talking about the 2.0 i-vtec version instead of 1.8. the engine has 2000 cc with DOHC with square bore and stroke which 86mmx86mm. with maximum horsepower of 155 at 6500 RPM and max torque of 188nm at 4500 RPM. this car can hit 221km/h! the acceleration is lovely from 0-180 and it start to climbing slowly when u reach 190km/ u going to need longer distance to get to max speed...anyway 180km/h is fair enough for long distance travelling...since it has 2.0 engine the engine only rev at 4200 RPM with top gear for the speed of 180km/h! and the fuel consumption only slightly different from the 1.8 version. with 17 inch sport rim and 215/45 tires the handling absolutely superb! plus this car has VSA,EBD,ABS in order to help u control ur car!.
one of my most favorite part is the interior! well the exterior is decent too but most people didn't give a damn about the interior...but for a very picky person the interior were amazing! the control panel took place very well and somehow honda manage to optimize every single space they have in the car! just by checking the section between front seat is enough to tell about this car! you can put ur drinks,pens,smart tag,small books,sun glasses,hand phone and so on! you going to travel far with this car because of the auto cruise mode! and it's quite easy to set them which u can learn it in 10 seconds or less!. Well about the fuel consumption is not that bad for a 2.0 engine. cause Honda has design this i-vtec to open at 3000-3500 RPM on wards i think. if u keep ur RPM below than that u can smile seeing ur fuel gauge =). full tank for this is 50 liter and base on our national fuel price now RON95 for RM1.90 and RON97 for RM2.7 it will cost you around RM100 for ron95 and RM140++ for ron97. How about the maintenance? well from what i calculate including engine oil,tires,roadtax+insurance and other stuff it will cost u around RM250-RM400 monthly depends on your driving style. so total cost for this monthly include installment+fuel+maintenance it will cost u around RM1800 -RM2000 monthly for this car.

Well honda didn't make perfect car and i bet no one can rite? so the problems that i spotted within this car is the throttle respond, it lag like 0.5 seconds from what u have done..add on with that the brake is too powerful which is good but for smooth driving u need to be super gentle on the brake. Other than that i can't find any problems with the car!. well maybe nearly RM2000 for this car is too much rite? not many people afford to spent RM2000 only for this car...

Anyway this is my review about this car and im planning to buy one of it after the new honda civic get into Malaysia market which i don't think has lots of difference with now days edition. except it much more environmental friendly with that Leaf Button LOL!.

p/s: when u guys own this car don't forget to try the paddle shift mode!
