Longtermer #2, Vol 25: (44th month): Honda Civic FD2 2.0IVTEC

In this blog entry, I'm updating my family's ride.  It's the Honda Civic FD2 2.0 IVTEC.  This is the 44th   month we owned the Civic.

First item I'd like to highlight's the Fuel Consumption improved over last update but only slightly.  The fill up recorded an average of 8.9km/l (or 23 cents).  Last fill up 33L good for 315km only. Though it's 80% city and 20% highway.  

Secondly, this car was "neglected" since my dad took delivery of the New Myvi 1.5SE+ Auto.  My dad drove the New MYVI Hard and seldom drive this car.  A mere 2761 km were covered in the period of 4 months.  Something unusual as my dad used to cover 1500km monthly. This car SELDOM sees Genting, Ipoh, Cyberjaya and LCCT drive.  These routes were now covered by the New MYVI 1.5SE.  This car's now covering 80% city driving and 20% highway driving.

Lastly, last week I scratched the Civic at Wisma Genting Basement parking lot.  Supposedly right angle approaching the ramp, I reversed a bit and scratched the rear left door (photo below)

Without further ado, let's proceed to LOG BOOK:

Mileage upon delivery: 0008km
Mileage last update: 59,865km

That's all...  Well there's a saying a picture's worth 1000 words...  Here are some photos:
