Longtermer #2, Vol 26: (47th 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 47th month we owned the Civic.

Over the past 3 months, the car's sent for 65,000km scheduled  service back in March 22b.  Nothing more than oil change and washer drain plug.  Price RM179 only using Mineral Oil.

Also, from 20 March onwards, my sister took over the Bumblebee (MYVI 1.5SE Auto) officially since she sold her Silver MYVI 1.3SXi (picture below).  
The old has GONE (picture above)...  The NEW Bumblebee (Picture below) has come...

As a result, my dad's back at his best, Driving the Civic HARD and piling up the mileage.

So far he drove to Ipoh, Kampar, multiple trip to Genting Highlands, LCCT and other unknown destinations.  Mileage today's AT LEAST 5500km more from Last update on 29 Feb.  

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