350 Chevy Intake Manifold
The Honda Civic was the Little Compact Car Darling of the 70s and 80s until competition started to ramp up in the form of Toyota's, Mazda's and a plethora of Hyundai's and Fords !! The Civic first came on the scene in 1973. It was economical, rated high for safety and attracted a a great deal of frugally minded consumers. Competition isn't always bad; it kept Honda refining and resculpting the Civic over all these years.
There are four different types of transmission packages, as well: CVT, 6 speed manual, 5 speed automatic, or the 5 speed manual. The 1.5 L 4 cylinder hybrid gets a combined 45 mpg, whereas their unique natural gas engine gets a combined 31 mpg. The biggest benefits to the natural gas engine is its fuel is a lot cheaper and the crash tests done on the natural gas vehicles prove that they are a lot more resistant to crash - explosions/fires.
Most of the Civic models fall in a $18 - $30,000 price point.
Things that set the Civic apart is its fuel economy - all models have combined mpgs of between 29 - 45 mpg, they scored high on all the government crash tests and they were built with very roomy interiors for such small cars!
The Civics do have some pitfalls. While the interior is roomy, the form fitting front seats are somewhat tight for bigger customers. The command console is quite cluttered and complicated to use. The steering has been known to be a little stiff and the cabin has a a great deal of road noise, as well.
Spring and summer is a time of change and new beginnings. There's something about the longer days and the warmer weather that pulls out of our winter funks and gets us feeling motivated to take control of things and shake up their lives for the better.
