got an 06 civic!!!

Hey I just traded my F150 and '04 civic in for an '06 Civic LX 4 door auto (yeah, my fiance is mostly driving the car, hence the auto). But the thing is still on a ship. My condtion on buy it is that it HAD to be Japanese manufactured, hence the reason it's on ship still headed for the US. But it's black with a tan interior. Hopefully this one is alot better than her previous '04 water log we are trading in.

I'm keeping my GSR for daily driving though!!!

Are you saying that some 06's are 100% made in Japan? I haven't seen one yet! The ones I've seen were partially Japan, partially US.. I think it was either engine, trans or maybe both from Japan.

Congrats on the new ride for your soon to be wife. (It's still not too late to get out of it!!!!) hehe

It black, and no not free, the other two where leases and fairly new cars, I actually have a tad of negative equity, so I'm paying a little over MSRP now But it's cheaper now and in the long run since I don't need the truck anymore.

Uhmmm, yeah some of the parts are made in the US, but the interior, tranny, metal for the unibody (frame) and body and the smaller parts are all made in Japan. Basically I think the sticker said 60% Japan or something like that, I'll check it out when I get the car in 2 weeks lol. Generally Civic engines are made in Toledo Ohio, this si probably made there, like I siad I'll check it out. But when we were looking at them, I sat in a US and Japan one, I could see the difference just in the inside. The US one had larger gaps between panels and all that.

No, I don't want to get out of it lol. I still owe 24k on my F150 that I'm no longer using and her '04 Civic has been nothing but problem after problem for us (she really hates it now). So I'm getting rid of 2 new cars for one new car, lowwer payments, lowwer insurance and all that.

Congrats on getting the j-vin! The US allows much greater tolerances in the fittment of all sorts of components. Better to get a j-vin car anyday. Enjoy it

It sounds like a good trade, but it sounds like in general you really don't recommend that people should buy Civics.

On the contrary, I reccomended anyone to buy Honda, this is my 8th Honda. Even thought I believe the Japan quality is better, even the US made Honda's have FAR better quality IMO than most American cars (like my F150 and all the others I been recently). I always recomended either Honda or Toyota car to people. I personally like the ride that Honda has over Toyota's, but that's a personal opinion.

And just because my finace and I got one bad civic, I still believe the majority are perfectly fine and that the chances or getting a lemon civic versus a lemon cobalt or Focus is far lower. I cold back that with some figures and such, but I'm to lazy, so I'll just say that's my opinion.

Yeah it's got tan interior, I would have prefered black, but the LX sedan only comes in tan. I think the EX sedan you can get with grey.

Like I said, I sat in both a US made sedan and Japan sedan, looking closely at the interior I could tell a difference (I even measured the gaps and offsets of certain parts). Bet I really looked like some sort of freak running around with a caliper measuring gaps in a car. But that is just my opinion, so I won't argue it. If you think the US version is just as good, then good for you. I personally want a Japan one, and thatís what I got.

Don't get me wrong, I don't personally care for the JDM thing. When it comes to after markets parts I have a totally separated and different opinion.

make sure to baby the exterior of the car. there's nothing more sad than seeing a black car with a **** load of swirl marks and mistreated paint.

No, you can tell by the vin number. If it starts with 1, it made in the US, 2 is Canada (I think that's how the numbers work), but I know if it starts with a J, then it's made in Japan, I have the vin number already, so I know it's from Japan. Actually I believe the Japan coupe is different, but the sedan might be the same, and I think only the sedan is being shipped in from Japan, and they are only shipping them from Japan for the first few shipments, mine is one of the last to come from Japan, the rest will come from Ohio and Canada. And besides, if it takes them 2-3 weeks to ship it from Canada or Ohio to me (I live in northern Ohio) I think something is screwy lol

Actually they just changed the color on me, the read the color code on it and it said blx or something like that, they thought it ment black, but it's actually a dark blue like the in my pic attached. But still that applies to any dark car, and I had a black '03 for about a year and half before I gave it to my dad. On the other hand, dark cars look the best when all cleaned up IMO.

Ok, that makes sense. Also what you said about the Japanese made Civics. They probably are made a little better in the Japanese plants. For example, the hybrids are all made in Japan, and I think they are supposed to be better made.

Well that's good, you will have a rare 8th gen Civic.

wow thats really weird. I'm guessing they can final assemble the Sedans in Japan because they sell them there. I know that the Coupes final assembly will either be US or Canada.

Look at this window sticker. Final assebly says Japan.

The 7th gen Sedan was designed in Japan, whereas the coupe was designed in North America. I don't think many coupes are sold in Japan.

Actually no I didn't drive it. It's mostly my finace's car, she drove one, two actually. She liked, so that's what matters

BTW, she tested the car pretty well, tossed it from side to side floored it and everything. lol She also like the 7thgen exterior style better, she loves the interior of this new car. She said the seats are far better, neither of us liked the 7thgen seats in my '03 or her '04. Plus it gets better MPG
