I love this site, but...

Sometimes I wish I never found it because so many people complain about the problems they are having it makes me kinda paranoid everytime I drive my car, like something is going to fail at any moment. Does anyone else feel this way?

All cars fail in one way or another. Aren't you glad you have peers to turn to?

Haha I know what you mean. Sadly forums tend to be more negative than positive, because a large part of the reason people post is to find answers to problems.

You know...I felt like that and then something did happen to my car...

I had to have the fuel pump and master cylinder replaced...

Then I got to use a 2004 Civic rental for 2.5 weeks...

I've got the 3 back now and I'm so happy...

Do I worry, yes still a bit, but I remember how much fun the car is to drive and just enjoy the moment...

If something does happen, oh well it will get fixed and at worst I might be without my car for a few weeks...

I guess the time away made me appreciate it that much more...

I actually have no problems with my car whatsoever, but I came here to learn more about it.
My general impression from being on this board is that yes, people have a tendency to come here if they experience problems, but on the other hand I am realizing that there aren't really that many issues with this car to begin with and no serious ones at all... Which is quite surprising considering that it is a first year model...
Great car, great forum!

I like driving, not just steering.

People will usually post about something going wrong with the car; but won't post anything if it running good with no problems. I could start posting everyday how good everything is going .

The whole reason I post mostly in the Lounge is because I don't have any problems. Big Yay for the admins/mods.
