Honda Civic 2009 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda Civic here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Civic GLI SRS and Side Airbag Off indicator problems
Honda's Neil McDonald says: "The dealership tested the vehicle and no fault was found with the Passenger Side Airbag. They did, however, find the SRS light illuminated due to an internal failure in the seat belt pre-tensioner. Although this is unrelated to any previous concerns raised by the customer, Honda is covering the cost of this repair for the customer as a goodwill gesture."
Stumbling Honda Civic
Like you suspect I too reckon it's dealer spin. It's the sort of thing a dealer says when they can't diagnose a problem. Take it back to the dealer, tell them you are unhappy they haven't been able to fix the problem, and make take them for a drive in the car to demonstrate the problem. That way there should be no dispute over its existence.
I Can't Go Low
A CARS such as the Corolla, Mazda3 and Honda Civic will tow a small box trailer comfortably without overstressing the engine, and will be more economical than your Commodores were. But because you have found getting in and out of the Corolla difficult you need to try other cars to see how they stack up. Alternatively, try a compact SUV such as a Honda CRV, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester. They are higher, which may make them easier to get in and out. You should be able to get a two or three-year-old model within your budget.
Toyota Corolla: Is it a good used car?
BUY a small car with a four-cylinder engine, and if you stick to the well-respected brands, such as Toyota Corolla or Echo, Nissan Pulsar, Mazda2 or 3, Hyundai Getz, or Honda Civic he should be a winner. Buy the car with the lowest odometer reading and in the best condition that fits his budget.
