Honda Civic 1.8A G

Hi

Anybody knows what's the difference between the 1.8A and 1.8A G models?

Saw this under used car search for Honda Civic 2009 models.

If I'm not wrong, the G model Civic was brought in by PIs and has the basic specs (e.g. no side signal indicator on wing mirrors, no integrated headunit, no original sports rims, etc) compared to KM model. Their OMVs are generally lower also.

Thanks for the answer. Do you think it's worth paying $80k for a 3 year old 1.8A G?

In my opinion, not worth it. G model not worth the money. Maybe you can list out the values like OMV, mileage, etc of this car here.

These are just a few of search results on sgcarmart:-

1.8A G/ $77,000/ reg 16-1-2009/ OMV $18,966

1.8A/ $79,800/ reg 22-1-2009/ 46,121km/ OMV $27,365 (facelifted model)

1.8A VTI-S/ $86,800/ reg 31-8-2009/ 33,000km/ OMV $26,100 (not sure what the VTI-S means)

The price can range from mid $70k to high $80k. One would definitely go for the lowest priced and moderate mileage but fear buying a lemon as good condition cars normally don't come with low price tag.

Any advice/criteria on how to choose?

Take the KM facelift ones. The PI model has a few features missing and has a half beige interior. That beige may turn yellow if not well maintained.

Common probs are the engine mount, aircon compressor not working well. Should be able to tell with a test drive.

The car will vibrate excessively at certain gears when initially started up. You can register an account at civicfd-sg.com and read more...
