New member of the forums from Laramie, WY, hello everyone.
I picked up this baby from the local Toyota dealership about 2 months ago. 2012 Honda Civic EX, 1.8 L engine, 5spd manual, 105k mi in excellent condition. I love it. Call it "Kurokaze". (Yes I am a weeb)
Not a mechanic but I've been wanting to learn more about cars. I am a DIY'er, though. Mostly I made this account so I can discuss with other owners if I start having issues. My experience in IT has taught me that browsing user forums for a specific product is a good way to get information on a problem with said product.
So far only issue I have had is with the E-brake release button breaking and falling out, but no point in buying a $100 assembly to replace a 50-cent button when I can just park the car in gear, which I am told I should be doing anyway.
Might be interested in performance tuning at some point, but only after I've paid the loan off on this thing.
