Civics! — Honda's are known best for their gas efficiency, and their durability over time. I love my car for so many other reasons, but mainly for the simplicity of the cars mechanics. I have already done work with the intake and body work, and will be doing much more with the engine very soon. If you have a hcance to get a civic or accord, get one!

Chrisi's Car! — I like my car, it's adorable! But.... I want something that goes fast. The back tires can get a little squirley, but it gets good milage. About 30 or so to the gallon. I like driving with the windows and the sunroof down. My car even has an awesome custome sound system, so I play my music obnoxiously loud! Plus, I have an ipod adapter for it!

Love My Car — i bought the car with just over 130K on it and it runs like a champ. it gets amazing gas mileage and handles pretty well. they're really easy to work on and they're good cars, although stock they're a little slow.

Honda Really Is Amazing. — I love my car. There's little to complain about- except that trunk lights apparently don't exist with the lower-end models. Not to mention its got some insane road noise. Other than that though, its awesome. Its got a few bumps that I put into it, but she still loves me.

Pros

Fun and easy to drive
Good gas milage
Easy to self-repair
Easy to modify

Cons

Poor acceleration on the highway
"Extras" generally not included
Many aftermarket parts not cheap due to high demand

Good Bang For Your Buck — Don't know what to say. Its a solid car for what you pay. Acceleration off the line is decent, good fuel mileage, they're easy to modify and to work on yourself. There's not alot to them as they are cheaper cars and thus don't usually include all the extras that come with higher-end cars.

100% reliable car. Fantastic value for money.

Solid Reliable Car — The first car I ever bought. Fantastic value for money. It really proved to be a wonderful companion for 9 years of toiling under harsh arid conditions. Solid as a rock (rear ended some other people a couple of times) and all I got was a cracked bumper while their car boots were completely crushed. Hondas are reliable reliable reliable.
