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.

So, hi.

Truck? What truck?!

Welcome to 9th gen.

For future reference, when you do replace the button/brake mechanism, pull up on the handle slightly before pushing the button.

This is not particular to Civics. This has been necessary in all of the handbrake-equipped cars I've owned and/or driven over the years.
