Civic snow dilemma
By melekpod on
2006 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
My Honda has been reliable in fair weather and rain, but snow, I find it a problem to get up some of the smallest hills. I bought a manual transmission hoping I would have more control in the snow. I thought it was the tires, so I bought new tires, still have the same problems. Also, I open the window and water seems to pour in on the controls when it's raining and rolling the window down usually has cleared the windows in past vehicles, but it doesn't, seems the like the rubber squeegy is on the wrong side of the window? Had a ford contour w/ no problems in snow.
smooth shifting, has pep, seats are comfortable. It has a good look.
I improve snow driving along with a rain guard over door or rain path from roof to window. Rolling down the windows should wipe rain drops off the window, do something about that.
