Hello, I am trying to decide between two vehicles to help me save gas. I am
driving a dang silverado that is costing me 25-30 a day in gas. A lady from
church has a 02 LX civic that she bought brand new. It has 45k miles on it
and is in impeccable condition.No one has ever touched it except the Honda
dealer. She wants 7k for it and the book on it is 8500 in good shape and
7500 in fair shape. I drove it today and liked it except for a few things,
it is NOT a muscle car or course but has adaquate power for my needs.Also
the power steering felt like it was not as easy as it should be and the
fluid looked fine. May just be the nature of this model.
My brother has a 2006 corolla sport model with 64k on it, it is also in
perfect conditon and will run circles in power around the civic. He wants
9k for it. Both these prices are firm. Meant to add both have AT
transmissions. I am leaning towards the honda even though the civic is 4
years older. I have owned both honda's and toyota's and I have better
service out of the honda's plus their customer service is a heck of a lot
better than toyota's (after dealing with toyota on a 05 tundra lemon it
left a bad taste in my mouth).
The only concern I have is after doing some research I found that the 02
civic had some transmission issues. Just wanted you folks who owned one
