LONGTERMER #2, Volume 15; Month 20: Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC

LONGTERMER #2, Volume 15; Month 20: Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC


In this blog entry, I'll be covering my ride.  The Honda Civic FD2. This is 15th update of Longtermer #2, this month's the 20th month we (my family) owned the Civic 2.0iVTEC FD2.

What's happened in the month between January to February. Let's see...


I have been enjoying driving the car around. In fact, WE (me and my dad) used this car more often now compared to the Ford Telstar.

Over the last 14 days, as usual my dad drove this Civic FD2 HARD.  To Genting Highlands (2 rounds), Cyberjaya 3 rounds.  How my dad drive (to Genting Highlands)?

Well, he utilised Engine braking most of the time when downhill and played with the Paddle shift (S mode) with Air-cond off (windows down) when going uphill.  


Three weeks ago, while reversing out of my porch, I hit a parked Wooden Lorry. 
Apparently, the reverse sensor did not work as the wooden lorry was too high.  The damage?  My rear right light broken and it's surrounding dented.  Spent RM280 for the lights and another RM280 for Knocking back and painting. Total RM560.
