deposit left .....

48 years old and have had civic 2000, 2003,2006,2012 and thought I was done with civics since the 2012 was not impressive, but I just left a deposit on a Touring *** a few days ago and am very excited ! I was thinking about the chrysler 200 since I like the features and cabin. The only problem is it's a chrysler and if I get tired of it, the resale is awful.

Thanks Robb. Have trouble keeping up with all the acronyms sometimes.
Hang around long enough and you'll catch on. The paint colors are the tricky ones sometimes if you dont' know the full names

*** = White Orchid Pearl
TW = Taffeta White
RR = Rally Red

etc etc...

Daily driver is a 2007 Civic EX Sedan. I don't want to let the equity in my Civic diminish. Other vehicle is a Toyota RAV4. I'm eager to see the Touring sedan in person. I may wait a few months to see if I can pick up a used one and get the certified 7 year warranty.

Berkeley, I'm 55 yo. I would love it if they offered a deep darkish red (the burgundy is too dark). Don't you find the RR a little too "young" and flashy?

I believe I understand what you mean. And I'm on the fence. That's why I'm thinking about ***; none of the other colors really grabs me. But I am a strong personality, I like and wear red, and I've never looked my age (people typically think I'm in my mid-40s--which is fortunate in an industry where the median age is less than thirty), so I might get away with it :) Plus I drove a similarly colored red Civic ES Coupe (special edition 6-speed VTEC) that I loved for years so there's also the nostalgia factor.

How about this red? (My next car!)

I am 37 and looking for better MPG's for my new job as a Network Technician for a school system that requires travel. My current car is a 2011 CR-V and I have a 2002 BMW M3 convertible for nice days. Waiting to see how I like the Touring in person and how well I fit in it. (6'3" 180 plus twin 3 year olds in the back seats) Other cars on my list are the new Tucson Limited and maybe the Subaru Crosstrek - both for AWD since winters in Connecticut can suck. I need to pick something soon because my CR-V needs new tires. Part of me says I need to buy something good on gas and another part of me says gas is so cheap now it really does not matter. The 2016 Civic offers a lot for very little $ in my opinion.

I am 40 and currently drive a 2007 Civic SI. My first car was a 1987 Prelude SI. Sold it and got a 1997 Accord. Modded the Accord with body kit, I.C.E, wheels, JDM headlights, and R33 Skyline conversion. While still having the Accord, bought a 1993 Civic hatch, swapped the motor with a JDM B18C with a turbo, stripped it, and was made for the track. Now that I'm older, I don't do as much modding. With my Civic SI, there are no engine mods; just I.C.E, wheels, retrofit HID's, and factory body kit. My next progression is of course the Type R.

Hi,

I'm 33
Engineer at Nuclear Power Plant
Looking to replace my current ride, 02 Camry since 2003, with '16 Civic Hatchback (Ex-T or above) within 6-12 months. My current ride has been very reliable, but it's on its last leg now (~293K+ miles). Based on ads, this new civic can give me good gas mileage. I commute 160 miles daily to work, so good gas mileage is my first priority. I've been a Toyota fan for the last 20 years; however, the new generation civic looks so much better and offers much more than the Corolla. Another factor that sways me toward Honda is the Hatchback. I love the practicality of hatchback so much. I hoping the new turbo engine is as good as advertise and reliable.
