LONGTERMER #2, Vol 17; Month 24: Honda Civic 2.0IVTEC

LONGTERMER #2, Volume 17; Month 24: Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC

In this blog entry, I'll be covering my ride.  The Honda Civic FD2. This is 17th update of Longtermer #2, this month's the 24th month we (my family) owned the Civic 2.0iVTEC FD2, ie. the 2nd year.  Man, how time flies...

What's happened in the month between May to End June. Let's see...

Well, my dad is based oversea, whenever he's back in Malaysia, I have NO CHANCE to drive the Civic as he'll drive THE WHOLE DAY.  Recently, he's back EVERY Weekend, so the chances for me to drive the Civic is LESSER...  This explained why my car, Ford Telstar registered higher-than-ever monthly mileage at 1272km last month.

Over the last 30 days, as usual my dad drove this Civic FD2 HARD.  To Genting Highlands (2 rounds), KLIA 2 rounds, Cyberjaya few rounds. 

The Civic's Due did its 35,000km service on 22 June 2010. They just did regular engine oil change, oil filter, washer drain plug.  Sumber Auto Edaran (Honda) service adviser  warned me of the next service (40,000km), it is going to be a MAJOR service.  They said prepared to fork out RM800+/- as they need to change Fuel filter, Spark plugs, Air filter in addition to the regular oil change.  

Without further ado, let's proceed to LOGBOOK.
