Body style(s) 4-door saloon ("sedan" in Australia) 5-door station wagon (Australia) 2-door utility (Australia) 5-door estate (conversion) 2-door convertible (conversion) Engine(s) 2,553 cc (156 cu in) straight-6 ohv Wheelbase 107 in (2718 mm)  Length 178.5 in (4534 mm) Width 67 in (1702 mm)  Curb weight 2,576 lb (1,168 kg) Related Ford Consul II Model number 206E In 1956 the Consul, Zephyr and Zodiac were all restyled to a new family look. The 6-cylinder cars' engines were enlarged to 2,553 cc (156 cu in), with power output correspondingly raised to 86 bhp (64 kW). The wheelbase was increased by 3 inches (76 mm) to 107 inches (2,700 mm) and the width increased to 69 inches (1,800 mm). The weight distribution and turning circle were also improved. Top speed increased to 88 mph (142 km/h) and the fuel consumption was also improved at 28 mpg-imp (10 L/100 km; 23 mpg-US). The Zodiac and Zephyr were also offered in two body styles these being the "Highline" and "Lowline", depending on the year of manufacture — the difference being 1.75 in (44 mm) being cut from the height of the roof panel. The "Highline" variant featured a hemispherical instrument cluster, whereas the "Lowline" had a more rectangular panel. In Australia, the Mark II Consul, Zephyr and Zodiac were built at Ford's factory in Geelong. As well as a 3-speed manual gearbox there was an optional overdrive and from 1956 (1959 in Australia) a Borg Warner DG automatic transmission. At first drum brakes were fitted all round (with a larger lining area of 147 sq in/950 cm2) but front discs became optional in 1960 and standard from mid 1961 (in Australia only 4-wheel drum brakes were available; some dealers fitted servo-assistance from 1961). A two-door convertible version was offered with power-operated hood. Owing to the structural weaknesses inherent in the construction of convertibles very few convertibles are known to survive: probably only 20-25 examples. In Australia utility (pick-up) and station wagon (estate) versions built in local factories were sold. A convertible with overdrive tested by The Motor magazine in 1961 had a top speed of 88.3 mph (142.1 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 17.0 seconds. A fuel consumption of 24.5 miles per imperial gallon (11.5 L/100 km; 20.4 mpg-US) was recorded. The test car cost ?1193 including taxes. In Australia, poor sales of the Zephyr led to cancellation of local manufacturing, which was switched in 1960 to production of the US-designed Falcon. Zodiac Mark II Ford Zodiac Mark II Ford Zodiac Mark II Production 1956-1962 294,506 (including the Zodiac Mark II) and 6911 Convertibles made. Body style(s) 4-door saloon 5-door estate (conversion) 2-door convertible (conversion) Engine(s) 2,553 cc (156 cu in) straight-6 Model number 206E The Mark II Zodiac was slightly altered to distinguish it from the lesser variants, having more elaborate tail-end styling and at the front a different grille. The auxiliary lamps and wing mirrors were deleted from the Zodiac range but it retained two-tone paint, whitewall tyres, chrome wheel-trim embellishers and gold plated badges. A car tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1956 had a top speed of 87.9 mph (141.5 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 17.1 seconds. A fuel consumption of 21.5 miles per imperial gallon (13.1 L/100 km; 17.9 mpg-US) was recorded. The test car cost ?968 including taxes.1989 Honda Civic 1.5 GLi
1989-1998 This is the first car I bought brandnew. This was one terrific handling and performing car. I tested one for my roadtest page in the newspaper I was working for, and I immediatley knew that this was the car to have. I skipped the power steering (too expensive for me in those days), but of course later I regretted that decission. When I had my car, the first thing I noticed the Semperit tires it came with weren't nearly as good as the Michelins that the Honda distributor fitted under the roadtest car. .. Fast and good handling as it was, this was one horrible car when it came to quality. This was the exception to the rule that Hondas are among the best cars you can have. I had some Hfl. 6.000 (more than € 2.700) of repairs - but they were all done under warranty, even though it had expired for four years! Within three months the fronts discs had to be replaced. Within ten months the clutch was gone. Later, a strange noise came from the rear suspension. First my dealer replaced the right side wishbones. Still the same problem. When they replaced the suspension at the left side the noise was gone. After five years the car suddenly and without warning came to a stop. This happened a few times. The injectors were replaced, but that wasn't the probem. The fuel tank was replaced (it was dirty after five years of Total fuel), but a new tank didn't solve the problem either. My dealer wanted to replace the engine management system, but since that is an expensive affair, they wanted the Civic to go to hospital first. Which means: to the Dutch distributor, for two weeks during my vacation. After taking the car almost apart they found the problem: a dirty lambda sensor, so that the cars engine management system decided that the exhaust fumes were too poluted and shutted the engine off. Then, less then two years later, my final problem with this car: when you drove a few minutes and had to stop and shut the engine off, it didn't want to start up again. You had to wait a few minutes before it came back to life. My dealer didn't know what to think of it. It was only after I posted my problem on an internet newsgroup (alt..cars.users.honda or something like that) that the solution came from a Civic driver from Vancouver. A malfunctioning sensor near the radiator, a part that only costed a few euros... Later my dealer told me that he had heard from at least eight Civics with the same problem, that all could be fixed thank to the helping Civic driver from Canada. From that on, the Civic had no problems anymore and I traded it at 200.000 kilometers and when it was nine years old for my first Mazda MX-5. Of course, I still haven't told about the rust problems the Civic had...
