Longtermer #2: Volume 9: Honda Civic 2.0IVTEC

Longtermer #2: Volume 9: Honda Civic 2.0IVTEC

This month is the 9th update of Longtermer #2, Honda Civic 2.0iVTEC FD2.

On March 16, my mum spilled "CURRY CHICKEN" on the Car boot carpet. I took it for cleaning, paid RM50, the stain's gone but the "Smell" and "Oil"'s still there. I managed to get rid of the "smell" by using "FAB" detergents + "TESCO dishwasher" + PANDAN LEAVES. BUT the OIL's still there. Called my "Pharmacist" friend, he said use: "Baking Soda + Vinegar". I faithfully obeyed and the "Oil's" removed.

Also, went to IKEA with this car. Do check out the capability of the BOOT (picture). 6 "Herman" white chairs (flat packed), 4 pillows, 2 "POANG" Cushions. ALL WITHOUT SPLIT FOLDING THE REAR SEATBACK! The rest, seeked IKEA for delivery. Ie. Dining table for 6, Sofa 3 seater, "POANG" frame, 4 beds + 4 mattress etc...

Year of manufactured: 2008 (Duh!)
Current Value: RM113,000
Purchase price: RM126,000 (less NCB)
Mileage when bought: 0008km

Mileage last month: 13033km.

Mileage NOW: 14244km
Average mileage per month: 1583km

Fuel consumption: 33L worth of petrol good for 400km (12.1km/L) mix driving of 70% city, 30% highway.

Interesting observation: 33L worth of petrol only good for 360km (10.9km/l) when I drove the car. Why? It's because of my "Heavy-footed" nature. BUT I tend to kickdown and woke up the i-VTEC a bit too often especially during traffic light start. Note: It's 70:30 city and highway driving.


1) Fill up twice, spent extra RM8.50 per fill up, buying Shell "FERRARI" model car.
2) RM50, "remove" spilled curry in boot.

Here's a parting shot before I sign off...

Parked at "MAPLE, SENTUL WEST" parking lot.
