Longtermer #2, Vol 20: Month 28: Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC

Longtermer #2, Vol 20: Month 28: Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC

In this blog entry, I'm updating my Family's ride.  The Honda Civic 2.0IVTEC FD2.  This is the 28th month we owned the Civic.  What's up from August 31 to October 30?  Let's see:

Over the last 2 months, my dad drove the Civic to 3 rounds of Genting Highlands, 2 rounds of KLIA and 4 rounds of PJ => Cyberjaya => PJ.  On 23 October, I finally managed to follow my dad to Genting Highlands.  I managed to observed how he drove up/down Genting Highlands.  FIVE (5) of us were on board.  3 of them were BIG SIZED.  I was amazed that the Car showed NO SIGN of STRAINED/out of puff.  Well, switching off the Air-conditioner + Windows winded down helped a bit.  My dad just leave it to "D" driving uphill, he only used the "S" Paddle shift (Engine braking) when going downhill Downhill (on the way back).

As you can see, my dad did the driving whenever he's in Malaysia (he's based in Vietnam and China).  Whenever he's in Malaysia, he'll leave the house at 8am and won't be back until 9pm.  Where did he go other than the one listed above is a mystery to me.

Without further ado, let's proceed to LOGBOOK.
