Civic drive ends in unrelated headache
So we drove our rental 2007 Honda Civic for eight straight days and returned it. Later I find out there is a speeding fine on it. Except that I did not step out of the house at the time of the fine, let alone be anywhere near the location listed for the speed camera. I’ll have to waste a morning clearing up this nonsense now. This is not the first time that the wrong fines have ended on my lap. Thank you, Dubai Police.
Update: Wasted a morning. As expected, got the runaround. Will have to waste a second morning to see if anything is solved.
Update 2: Wasted a second morning. Got the photographic evidence. Some bloody Land Rover in the photo. Almost made to come back for a third morning, but somehow finished at the last minute before everyone went home.
On a more interesting note, the Honda Civic is the quickest car we’ve driven among the four economy cars we’ve tested recently, as well as the most fuel efficient. That makes it more quick and less thirsty than the Ford Focus, the Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart and the Chevrolet Optra. So there is more to this car than its spaceship looks.
