Ugh, not another new member who will ask never-ending meaningless questions which would otherwise be easily answered through use of the "search" feature. . . So, yes, I'm new here and I'm reading all of your internet contents. I apologize in advance if I do ask something that has been asked before; I do try and search out answers; but, even then, things can get missed. Anyhow, a few days ago, I purchased my first Civic, a black 2012 Civic Si sedan; although, this is my 5th Honda purchase (4th if you exclude my lawn mower). Overall, the Civic is probably an 8 out of 10. Mechanically, it seems solid thus far and the interior is in good shape; however, cosmetically, there are some blemishes that will need to be addressed at some point. I don't have plans to do anything crazy to it; just to use it as a daily while I rebuild my other car. I joined the forum as a means to find solutions to any problems that may arise, maybe buy/sell parts as needed, and general car community involvement. A little about me; I am active duty military and have been for quite a long time, I am from FL but currently live in VA. I have been a mechanic since I was a kid, learned by working in my dad's shop through middle school and high school. I do roughly 99% of my own work and don't mind helping others out when I can. I've owned both domestic and import cars over the years but keep finding my way back to Honda as I like reliability and simplicity. Here is a list of cars I've owned over the years (not all that exhaustive of a list, I tend to keep my vehicles for awhile; just posting these for talking points more than anything): *List is in chronological build order, not in purchase order* -1977 Ford F-100 4x4 (sold) -1978 Ford Thunderbird Town Landau (traded-in) -1994 Dodge Stealth R/T Twin Turbo (constant project) -1994 Toyota Tercel (sold) -1996 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Convertible (sold) -2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited (traded-in) -2007 Honda CBR600RR (traded-in) -2009 Honda CBR1000RRA (testing speed limits regularly) -2012 Honda Civic Si Sedan (new daily) -2016 Honda Pilot Touring AWD (grocery getter) And....that is about it. Anyhow, thanks for having me; and, I assure you, I am not a robot. I tried to get into another 9th Gen Civic forum; but, they keep rejecting my application for some reason....perhaps my username is a little too questionable (I've had it for such a long time and use it on multiple forums that I don't want to come up with a new one).
