I guess I will have to stretch the life of the old civic until that diesel engine is out. I drive too much to rely on gasoline. I'm lead-footed, so a hybrid won't do.

400 lbs

Is anyone concerned about the considerable weight gain of the F10 over the late model? Though, car magazine reviews seem to be positive despite this. Any thoughts?
