    First time Civic owner... School me on the car.

    Hey guys,

    Just bought a '12 Civic Si Sedan last month. Made the jump from BMW. Was looking for something a bit more reliable, better on gas and still sporty. Seems like the Civic Si was the right choice....

    So far, I really like this forum. It's clean, organized and seems to have a good member base. Can't wait to contribute.

    Anyways, I've been doing some reading and trying to gather the general census on the car.

    What should I know about the car?

    Also, basic stuff, what is the owner recommend oil change intervals and what weight and type of synthetic oil do you guys use.

    I'll get some pics of the new car as soon as I can...

    Thanks!

    Welcome to 9th gen, zuck.

    What GM said.^^ You can use the 'Search,' or click on 'Forum,' and then pick a category and start reading. It's all there.

    It's what I do whenever I join a new group such as this.

    For oil changes I just follow iMid and the maintanance minder. Unless you do alot of highway driving and your high mileage than I would do it sooner than the maintanance minder.
