time will tell
Objects in mirror are losing

If driving an Alfa does not restore vitality to your soul, then just pass the hospital and park at the morgue to save everyone time.

Hi one Audi please.

The current Civic doesn't actually have stellar reliability. One Honda tech was saying that some of the turbos are cooking electrical connectors and the current solution is replacing the underhood wiring harness. I can't remember if that applied to both the 1.5 and the 2.0L turbos. There were some other issues as well.

The Type R is also off to a rocky start reliability-wise.

Saw a Civic getting put on a tow truck yesterday.  Didn't appear to have been in an accident...
I'd rather be car-poor than house-poor...
