Longtermer #2, Vol 22: Month 36: Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC

Longtermer #2, Vol 22: Month 36: 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 36st month we owned the Civic.  What's up from February 1 to June 30?  Let's see:

My dad drove the Civic HARD.  Every month at LEAST 2 trips to Genting Highlands and few trips to Cyberjaya and KLIA.  He also went to Penang Once, IPOH twice with the Civic FD2.  He's based in Vietnam, but he drove out the car WHOLE DAY whenever he's back.  Where he goes other than the above was a mystery to me.

In May, this Civic was borrowed to use as a wedding car for my sister's friend Amy and Siong Liet.  Here are some photos:

I sent to Honda Service TWICE since my last update.  Once for 45,000km service and another for 50122km service.  Among the things serviced were Fuel filter, Air-cond filter, Air cond service, Fixed the broken centre console (@50,000km).  Wiper blades BOSCH 26/24 (bought at Jusco for RM26.25 after "discount"), and alignment/balancing I did outside.  My dad also changed 2 more Michelin PS3 in May 2011.  This round he bought at RM475 per tyre from the same shop, Hin Leong (last year he bought RM420 only).

Late May: I got stuck in a jam from Wisma Genting heading towards my house in Section 17, PJ.  Sort of a Record: 1hr 50 mins.  The irony is it's mere 15km ride...
