r18 owners regret?

do you guys regret or wishing that you drive mazda3 or scion tc, instead of civic? these were my choices before i got my civic, we all know that they have better engine performance, some sexyness and cheaper base price compare to the civic.

im jealous everytime i see mazda3 especially the fully loaded one! whoooo!

i'm sure most small cars under 20k will have there flaws. Mine is getting better with age. The noises are going away in some cases. You just have to get in there and find and fix the problems. No car is going to be perfect

One of the reasons I bought the R18 was because I had a 2002 Si and it had transmission issues also heard about alot of the RSX ones. I figured honda would do the same on the new Si so I thought I best stay away.

I'm sure they all have their share of problems. The only things I regret for buying a civic instead of the Tc is probably the acceleration and how much more "extra" stuff about the same price as an LX. I drive my dads 2001 Accord V6 and it really takes off compared to my civic. But at the end of the day I see how sexy my car is and how it has the ability to turn heads and the next morning I feel good knowing I drove 100 miles and I still have well over half a tank of gas left. If I were to do it again, I'd still buy this car. :thumb:

No way. I'd never take the tC over the civic. Sure its faster but I prefer quality over a few extra tq and hp. If only they put the k20z2 in it. I think the interior of the tC is worse than the civic. Everything in it looks cheap and plain. I love my civic interior. Theres only one rattle in the right door speaker when i play music with a lot of bass. My only regret is not getting an SI. I haven't been in a MS3 yet but from pictures, I'd still take the civic.

I have no regerts on the hybrid.

If you do regert your civic then sell it for some classes. Get a degree then buy all three mentioned cars. Then you have no regerts

hehe i wont be surprise how many people here regret getting EX/LX/DX when they should have gotten an Si to beginning with, but hey its cool, you can just always trade it your current car and go to an upgrade, everyone deserve to be happy of the car that they purchased :thumb:

Umm yah i regret not getting a 2003 330i for 18,000 ....and it was in the color i wanted. But it was kind of my fault b/c i said i wanted to look around to see my other options and by the time we went back to get the car it was already gone:sadwavy: but i do love the gas mileage =] and ive finally learned to love the beauty of a GG lol

no, i dont regert at all when i had my r18!

edit: only negative thing that came out is that i shoud've gotten the Si from the beginning rather than getting r18 then trading it in later for an Si... cost me a few thousands and more on my monthly payment/gas.

but all in all i have no regert!

I don't regret the Civic but i kinda wish i looked into the Mazda 3 a little bit more though. Overall i think it's been a great car.
