What do you need to know about my car? That’s it’s for sale.? That it’s a 2005 Honda Civic Si Hatchback? That it has just over 82,000 miles? Oh…it’s also a 5-speed manual transmission.
I just had a minor service, they guys at Automotive Excellence in Cotati said it was in good condition.
I have all of the service records, including two services I had in Calgary, Alberta and Whitehorse, Yukon.
Here is the CARFAX Vehicle History Report.
For such a small car, it is very roomy. Surprisingly roomy. In fact, when I was remodeling the bungalow and I had to transport a fireplace, the guys where I picked up the fireplace stood around and looked at me and looked at my car and shook their heads and said: “No way. No way will you fit the fireplace in that little car.You need a truck. You definitely need a truck.”
I said: “Pshaw. P-S-H-A-W! I once fit three 17-foot sea kayaks on top, three people, and enough gear for a three-day camping weekend in a Honda Civic hatch. I bet I can fit in that fireplace. Besides, if it doesn’t fit in, it will fit on top.” (Did I mention it has roof racks?)
So these big burly guys stood around harrumphing and betting that I couldn’t fit the fireplace in the hatch, but once they saw that it would fit, they all crowded around to help. “Well I’ll be…” I heard somebody exclaim. “I’ll be..”.
Regardless. Most of those 82000 miles are highway miles. I bought this car in March of 2005 when I lived in Healdsburg and worked in Petaluma, California (70 miles round trip, daily). Then, I lived and worked in Healdsburg for two years with little or no driving.
In 2009, I took it on a road trip to Canada. I drove it to Calgary, Alberta, then to Whitehorse, Yukon, then back again.
It’s a good little car. I love my little car. If I weren’t leaving the country, there would be no way in hell I’d sell it.
