Automatic vs. manual transmission in a used Honda Civic?

Discussion in 'Civic' started by Jacqueline Passey, Nov 11, 2006.

  1. I am trying to find a good used Honda Civic hatchback with a manual
    transmission in the Seattle area and so far haven't been having any
    luck. I have found a few with automatic transmissions. The reason I
    was looking for a manual is that it's a cheaper repair if/when it
    breaks than an automatic (this is a car that I want to be able to drive
    for a long long time) but since it may not be possible to find one I
    was thinking maybe I should compromise and go for the automatic

    Can anyone tell me more about how likely the automatic transmission is
    to break down, at what approximate mileage range, and how much that
    repair costs when it happens? Vs. breakdowns and repairs with the
    manual transmission?

    How depends on the newsreader you are using. Usually it's just a matter of
    listing the multiple groups in the destination line.

    Why is so that replies to the message get seen by all applicable groups and
    people who follow multiple groups will only need to see the post once (once
    it's marks as read in one group the newsreader automatically marks it read
    in the other groups it's cross-posted to as the message as the same header)
