    been meaning to buy the diesel version of Chevrolet Captiva. with sky-high petrol prices, it seems like a pretty good idea.

    How's 08' honda civic?
    i've been eying on it but with the gas price skyrocketing, i'm a little anxious on its fuel consumption.

    we have the 2.0 liter 08 model, well my bro does. goes 8-10km/liter on xcs fuel from daily usage. depends on traffic conditions and distance. love the motor but it's not the most cost-effective car to drive around.

    don't get a civic if your primary concern is fuel efficiency. I drive a 1.8s automatic. average city driving is 8km/liter no traffic driving as in sctex and watching the RPM can only get you up to about 10km/liter max. it's a really nice car but there are a lot of other cars out there that's more fuel efficient.

    I do. I have not owned a car ever since I started driving which was not modifed in one way or another. My modifications are mostly performance oriented. No BLING or audio mods for me.

    Just sold my last Subaru recently which was lightly modified. I kept mods on this car to a minimum cause I did not want to kill myself:rolleyes:

    I drive a Civic FD 1.8S A/T too, last reading I got is 6.6 km/liters, most I got is 7-8 km/lit.

    btw all city driving only, the 7-8 with some highway.

    should I back to driving school again? hehe.

    might want to reconsider. There's been some disturbing reports of thieves breaking into cars and stealing laptops. Sticking that apple sticker in your car is an open invitation to those a........
