    Are there any motor home owners out there that have towed their civics with automatic transmission 4 wheels down? I have about 4000 miles on mine by using the instructions in the crv owners manual. I know what the civic manual states!! my transmission fluid is still nice and clean. let me know.
  2. Drivetrain Problems
    Appears Honda is phasing out the manual transmission in the 1.8’s. Since the 9th introduction I’ve been tracking dealer inventory of LX sedans by transmission. Going back to May 1 of this year total inventory has been relatively stable at 15,000 plus or minus. During this same period manual...

  7. New Member Introductions
    Question on LX with manual trans. I'm thinking about getting a new 2012 manual transmission LX sedan. Does anyone know if the manual transmission comes with the new econ mode? Or is that just on an automatic? I was also curious if the LXs came with rear disc brakes? I think some of the...
  8. Fuel/ Mpg Discussion
    Never heard of "Eco Assist" until today. Can someone please explain what this is, apparently it will come standard on all 2012 Civic models, and other vehicles in Honda's line up.
