LONGTERMER 2: 68th month report: Honda Civic FD2 (Season 2, vol 1)
In this blog entry, I'm posting my Family's ride. I called it Season 2 because I haven't been updating it since February 2013.
Apparently, the sale of this Civic FD2 was cancelled, along with my Plan to own Elantra 1.8. It's because My dad decided to Buy the Hyundai i10 1.25 CVVT White instead. He driving the i10 1.25 more often until November 2013. Where he asked his Hong Kong Expat friend to "SAMBUNG BAYAR THE i10 RM580 installments for 1 year). This explained why the mileage picking up again From November 2013 to March 2014, back to 1000km+ per month, compared to Feb to Oct 2013's dismal 500km monthly.
Here's my last update.
Here's the END OF SEASON 1 (27 volumes).http://otoreview.blogspot.com/2012/08/longtermer-2-vol-27-4th-year-honda.html
Another link to my Cardomain's page of my Civic FD2.
During the past 13 months, very little have been done to this car. Apparently, since my dad took delivery of the Hyundai i10, this car's RARELY Used. Until September 2013, where my dad Invested RM1800 to purchase 4 new shoes (tyres), hence revived the Civic FD2. Previously all 4 Michelin PS3 Tyres botak (2 of them peeling at side).
The tyres my dad bought were MADE IN JAPAN Yokohama Advan Db (Decibel), 215/45R17. Bought from LYN Forummer, "nestum" for RM450 per piece.
1 month later, the revival of the Civic FD2 completed after the 95,000km 1st time service outside Honda. Last 90,000km service was WAY BACK in December 2012. Yes, 10 months 5,500km done only. Ie. 550km per month only. That's how RARE it's previously been used.
The HIGHLY Recommended Workshop is Zhapalang Motorsport at Metro Prima, Kepong. Strategically located right behind AEON Jusco Metro Prima, I actually, kill time at AEON Jusco Kepong while the Civic FD2 was being serviced there.
The Boss, Mr. Zenden Goh's honest too... He told me, Brake fluid and ATF no need to change, just oil filter and fuel filter and clean air filter and labour for oil change and spark plugs (cause Engine oil - Liqui Moly MOS/2 10W/40 Semi-synthetic (RM155) and Spark plug - NGK Laser Iridium (RM230) I bought outside).
Other stuff changed were Hella Wipers, Crystal No plate (rear).
