My first car: A pre-owned 2012 Honda Civic V

The car has been immaculately maintained over the past 12 years, with everything up to date.

BHPian RunSam recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I have been following your thread since you bought the Civic and it has been super informative! So I just want to say thanks a ton, your thread motivated to buy a well maintained Civic myself.

I picked up my first car, a 2010 white V MT from a family friend a month ago, and I’ve been enjoying the ownership experience so far. I’ve driven a ton of Civics my friends owned over the last decade and I’ve always wanted to own one myself. I’ve done a coupe of small drives, ECR multiple times, Pondy once and I have an upcoming trip to Kodai.

The car has been immaculately maintained (mechanically) over the past 12 years, with everything up to date (fully serviced at Ignite with Mr. Raghav), even the steering rack and box was changed in September 2021, however there is still a sound that comes on full lock, and while going above 4000RPM. I took it back to Ignite but unfortunately Raghav said he has done everything possible with the car, and post this, I only have to go to Honda as only they can properly assess and diagnose the sound.

I contacted Jai Prakash after reading your thread but then realized that his workshop is on the other end of town. The steering sound doesn’t concern me that much as it is very minimal as of now, but the other sound while going above 3-4K RPM sounds like an unpleasant whine, sort of like a supercharger, but unpleasant.

Attaching a few pictures of my car below.

Here is the invoice of the last service in September 2021 done by the previous owner
