1992 Honda Civic Vx, 60 Mpg, Low Miles, Always Garaged, Well Maintained, 2nd Own on 2040-cars

Year:1992 Mileage:135871
Location:

Johnston, Iowa, United States

Johnston, Iowa, United States

Hi, I am selling my 1992 Honda Civic with only 135,871 highway miles. It is in great mechanical condition and has been well maintained. It is rare to find a VX with such low miles. The best thing about my VX is that you can average a little over 60 mpg on the highway. I have changed the oil every 3,000 miles. I purchased it last year and have put 35k miles on it. The car drives straight and there is not pull to the right or left on the interstate when you take your hands off the wheel. The suspension is good. The AC blows cold. The tires have 40% tread. The spare tire, jack, and tool kit is included. It has a clear title and has never been in an accident.

I have bought and sold motorcycles, cars, and trucks on ebay in the past. I canceled my ebay account 4 years ago when ebay bought paypal. I had 100% feedback and over 1000 feedback. I just signed up again. That is why I have no feedback. I am a pilot and am pretty good at maintaining my vehicles. Please search "journey rider" on a search engine and you can read my blog about a motorcycle trip from Iowa to Argentina that I did 7 years ago.

For maintenance I have installed an oem NGK oxygen sensor, distributor cap & rotor, Bosch spark plug wires, NGK spark plugs, wiper blades, air filter, and an Interstate Battery. I installed a Sony CD Player with MP3 port and an oil pan heater. The oem oxygen sensor was $400, so please take that into consideration. The cheap ebay knockoff oxygen sensors do not work and you have to spend $400 at the dealer if you want 60 mpg and not 40 mpg. Almost all of the VX's for sale have oxygen sensors that need to be replaced and with an old sensor the mileage goes down to 40 mpg or worse.

As you can see from the pictures my car is in pretty good condition for its age. The paint still shines and has not been faded by the sun. The original owner had the bottom of the car undercoated and that has prevented most areas of the car from rusting. There is no rust in the driver or passenger side door jambs as you can see from the pictures. The only area of the car that has some rust are the rear wheel wells which you can see from the pictures. The car has some dings and blemishes but for the most part is in great condition for its age. There is light hail damage but you can only see it if you are standing a couple feet away from the car.  

The interior is in great condition. The drivers side seat bolster has a patch which you can see in the pictures. Other then the patch there are no rips, tears, or stains in the cloth seats. Everything on the car works. The only problem I can think of is that when you pressure was the back of the car a little bit of water leaks through the seal on the rear window. It doesn't happen in the rain, only when you pressure wash it.

I need a larger car for my job and that is why I am selling my VX, It has served me well. I am only the second owner. The original owner was a university professor. Most of the VX's for sale have questionable maintenance histories. Be cautious of buying one from a dealer or a teenager.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask. If there is a picture that you want to see please let me know and I will email it to you. The final bidder must send a $300 paypal deposit within 48 hours. The remainder needs to to paid with in 10 days. The winning bidder is responsible for picking the car up in person or making shipping arrangements. I can pick you up at Des Moines International Airport. If you pay for the car ahead of time I can also drop it off at a shipper's within a 25 mile radius of Des Moines, IA. The car is to be sold "as is." I have done my best to give an accurate description of the car, but I make no guarantees on any of the information in this description. Serious Bidders Only Please! Thank you

Honda to field this awesome Civic Tourer wagon in BTCC next season

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 08:00:00 EST

We all know that the letters BTCC stand for British Touring Car Championship. But one of those Cs might as well stand for Civic, so dominant has the Honda team been in one of the most competitive tin-top racing series in the world. Honda has taken the manufacturers' and teams' titles in the BTCC for the past four years running, and the championship-winning drivers for the past three years have claimed the prize behind the wheel of a Civic. While that might have proven enough for any other manufacturer, Honda is returning again next season to defend its dominant position, and has just revealed the new car with which it intends to do so.
Next year Honda will be back on the grid with another Civic, only this time it's based on the new Euro-spec Civic Tourer. That will make Honda the only team in the BTCC (and one of only a few worldwide) fielding a wagon-based racing car. In announcing the new BTCC-spec Civic Tourer, the Honda Yuasa Racing team only released this one photo and didn't reveal much in the way of details, but team manager Peter Crolla indicated that "the weight, wheelbase, layout and suspension remain the same" as the hatchback which it will replace, only with a longer roofline.
Testing of the new touring wagon will commence in January before returning champions Gordon Shedden and Matt Neal will pilot the new Civic Tourer in the season opener at Brands Hatch in the UK in late March. It remains to be seen what car Andrew Jordan (who took the title this year in another Civic with the Pirtek Racing team) will be driving next season, but in the meantime, you can check out the full press release below for more.

Toyota raises Japanese base wages for first time since 2008

Fri, 14 Mar 2014 11:29:00 EST

Toyota is on track for record profits, and in return, its Japanese workers are receiving their first increase in base wages since 2008, plus higher pay based on seniority and a larger bonus for 2014. The Japanese automaker predicts the average laborer will net a 2.9 percent income gain.
The average Toyota employee will earn 2,700 yen ($26.28) more each month, a 0.8 percent increase from last year. Workers will also receive about 7,300 yen ($71.09) more monthly based on seniority and promotions. Finally, the company's union pushed through a median bonus of 2.44 million yen ($23,768) for 2014, the highest in 6 years.
The pay boost comes as Toyota forecasts a record 1.9-trillion yen ($18.5 billion) profit for the fiscal year ending on March 31, according to Bloomberg. It has been helped by the Japanese government's efforts to weaken the yen on international markets and expand inflation. Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has been asking businesses to increase compensation to end years of deflation and offset upcoming higher sales taxes. Honda and Nissan have also raised their wages there in recent months.

Bonkers Honda Vezel headlines Mugen's lineup at Tokyo Auto Salon

Tue, 14 Jan 2014 10:19:00 EST

Japanese automakers and their tuning divisions have descended upon the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City for the 2014 Tokyo Auto Salon. And for Honda, it's all about Mugen.
Honda's Japanese Domestic Market tuning division brought a series of modified concepts and racing cars to the salon this year, including the CR-Z hybrid touring car it fields in the Super GT series, the SF13 single-seater from the Super Formula series as well as customized versions of the Fit, Odyssey and N-WGN. But the prize for the most outrageous of them all surely goes to the modified Vezel you see above.
Modeled on Honda's new Fit-based crossover, the Mugen Vezel Concept goes further than the versions we've seen until now. It features a bonkers body kit, dual exhaust, brake upgrade, sport suspension, intricate 20-inch alloy wheels and an upgraded interior. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you're feeling still interested, you can check it out in the gallery above, along with the announcement below and the specs on Mugen's website.
