Cotter pins are stupid! The drive was long, had to stop a couple of times stretch but the good news is that I made and I got 19 mpg on the way home. I did a happy dance. It's the small victories that matter.
Please tell me there is video of this "happy dance".
Needs lift pics! :)
Also needs rear flush mount and bumper mouth LED pics.

Added a commuter car to the mix! Landed a new job where the mileage makes the car and insurance payments. Huge improvement over mileage that I was getting in the X. Went from 14mpg to 30mpg.

2010 Honda Civic LX Sedan
3rd owner
39K Mileage
7 year extended warranty (Had front axle replaced already)
Super clean

Nice! I did the same for my long commutes for work.
Thanks! It's a huge change from driving the X.

I was going to do a month of driving the X but after one week there is no way I could justify driving the X even with the mileage reimbursement. Not cost effective in anyway. I almost bought a different one at a dealer two days prior to getting this one for 10k with more miles and it was older. So glad that deal fell through and I landed on this one. The sales guy called me back while I was buying this one and was like 'I'd like to work a deal for the one on my lot.' I laughed and said I was in the process of finalizing a deal and that I wasn't interested. Needless to say he missed the boat. Oh well!
