Best car in its class for the price. But I read stories of the turbo one overheating in Thailand. Rumor or true?

Heard/read about that, too. But from the comments, they said that the dashboard photo is from Vtec Turbo Civic but the car on the flatbed truck seems to be non-Turbo variant, based on the wheels.

So whats this I keep hearing about the car overheating easily?
Silly rumours. Buy one and dispel it! And Tom should review this one. The 1.5 model really nice buy halogen lights? Jesus feels like 2003 again. Hid should be standard by now.

Ixeo already terrorizes the city of KL with his boat. He's even coined the maneuver where you drive in such a way you fling rocks and stones at the car behind you the "Ixeo maneuver".

Btw Ixeo, when you free to meetup?
