For taller people, this is a key difference. The 400 is a little short in the headroom and the seat back height. The 430 fixed this and is a much more comfortable car for tall people, especially...

Just to close the thread out - I replaced the valve with a new one and the leak hasn't come back. I couldn't find any cracks on the old one, even after taking it off and inspecting it with a...

You can get new hood struts on ebay for less than $40, and they're a very easy DIY install.

I'm kinda surprised the Takata airbag catastrophe hasn't touched any Lexi (yet). It seems like Takata airbags were/are extensively used by Toyota and Honda, among many others.

I think I just saw your car on Craigslist while searching for a part. That sure doesn't look like 25MPH damage to me.

Wow, that is ununsual. If he just wanted it gone I wonder why he didn't trade it in. Even the dealer would have given him more than $2500.

Let me know when he's getting rid of the 460!:D

Did he really just try to sell it from the front yard? If he'd posted it to Craigslist it would have sold in days at double the price.

Funny, my LS is missing this cover so I've been looking for a replacement from craigslist parts cars. It's about $150 for a new one, which seems kinda steep for a piece of plastic.

BTW that's not a platinum edition. It does look quite clean though from what's visible in the pics.

It depends. Maintenance records? Timing belt service done? Does it have just the right combo of options/color that you're looking for? If yes to all that, maybe $7K-$8K. If no, then something...

What I'm saying is, you don't need to reprogram your existing fob. Its programming is fine already, it just has busted buttons.

When you program a key/fob the programming isn't to tell the...

I'm not 100% sure I'm following, so forgive me if I'm getting it wrong. If the fob still locks the doors, and allows the car to start, its programming isn't bad - it's still paired to your car's...

Is it cheaper to get the new key cut instead of the old one reprogrammed? If so then pay that fee, then with your old fob as the master you can reprogram the new one yourself.

Another thing to consider is the relative scarcity of LSes compared to Civics. Your local Carmax isn't going to have 3 of them loitering on the lot. They only sold about 50,000 units total of the...

leaky hcv?

I'm guessing the answer is "No", but it's not normal for the heater control valve to leak a little, is it? My heat and A/C work perfectly on my 2000 LS, but my HCV seems to spit up a little coolant...

You can get bluetooth reception built into the factory head unit also. That's not as fancy as the onscreen integration of modern head units, but it's something anyway.

If they think the timing belt has never been changed in 175K miles, yet they tell you "it needs nothing", then you know their interpretation of "needs nothing" is worth nothing.
