    Default Civic 7th Generation Reviews, Maintenance Costs and Problem

    Hello Pakwheelers,
    I am looking to buy Honda Civic 7th Generation Eagle Eye 2005, I have some questions
    Which model is more fuel efficient and easier to maintain Exi, VTI or VTI Oriel manual or Prosmatic ?
    How is this car in terms of Fuel Economy CNG and Petrol
    Availability of parts
    Maintenance of this car, I heard its suspension is problematic
    Kindly share your experiences

    Go for VTi Prosmatec, not manual. You will love it.
    Fuel consumption of VTi is a bit better than Exi plus you will get ABS, retractable mirrors, OEM rims as well.
    Drive it on petrol to fall in love with this model

    I have VTI Manual. (I used wrong oil this time so getting lower mileage will change oil back to same grade soon) Mileage normally is around 11-12KM/L local with 100% AC. I would recommend manual the reason is that such an old car you never know how the car is treated. If in auto transmission fluid is not changed then there could be alot of issues..

    Getting around 9 in local isb driving with AC all time on. Exi prosmetic using 10watt30 honda oil but fully synthetic gives u a peace of mind till 6k kms for oil change nothing else. Nvr had the feeling the engine went quite on oil change but the ones who say the engine sound changes with oil change, need to meet them badly. My daily task is that i keep car start at idle for 5-7 minutes and then i start moving. I m doing the same since 2008, the time i bought it. Max mileage i got was 11kms in local plus highway just kept my ravs below 3k positively and oil was ziv A+ fully synthetic. Sry for taking so much space

    I am using Shell HX5 10W40 Yellow one. Thinking to shift to synthetic HX7 5W30 or Quartz 9000 5W30.
    Is it safe to do so? Mileage is 115000 kms

    Have you used synthetic previously ? Just bought the ride 2 months back and the previous owner was also using 10w40 HX3. Engine is in excellent nick though dont know about history.

    I always used fully synthetic since long. Last time changed to genuine honda on someones recommendation that it will giv better mileage but the plan sucked lol. Will shift back to fully synthetic next week as oil change is due.
