Re: 03 Civic EX or 06 Civic LX? need advice please

is there any chance of finding a manual 01-05 civic? the autos are really gonna get you in trouble esp if they have over 100k that means its ready to die. if you go with 06+ then look for an SI because they dont have any engine issues like the regular r18s.

Thanks for all the responses everyone. Well unfortunately I never learned to drive a manual and I'm too old and set in my ways to learn now...so I ended up buying the 04 LX auto trans with close to 85,000 miles....wish me luck with it.

manual ones in red is easy to find. because those are mostly all 2dr.

the blue ones are 4drs. and the 4dr+manual is ever harder to find... (plenty of 4dr autos)
