A good friend of mine had his Mini totaled, rear ended when his son was sitting in traffic. He had been borrowing my sons 2006 Civic and decided he wanted one.

I talked him into the 2016 Civic LXT and he bit. I had a chance to drive the car, wow, it is a little hot rod. You put your toe in it, it growls and goes places fast. Very nicely appointed and handle great.

I have a 2000 Accord and the new Civic is at least as big as the older Accord. The little turbo motor just makes it a rocket. Rated a 177HP though some articles feel the HP is under rated, it feel like it.

Good thing you talked him into the 1.5 and not the 2.0 with the missing retainers on the wrist pins.

I think you mean EX-T. The three trim levels that get the turbo are the EX-T, EX-L, and Touring. The LX and EX get the non-turbo.

My brother has been extremely pleased with his Touring except for the infotainment system that is plagued with a multitude of intermittent problems.
