None

Overall I Believe Its A Solid Little Car. — I like driving. My Civic provided a solid and safe ride. Easy to handle in and out of heavy traffic. A little noisy with the windows down but overall a quiet car. I don't hesitate recommending. Great when used for driving during day trips or back and forth to workl

Great, Relible Car. Especially As A First Car. — Great first car! 5 stars for that alone, haha. It has a 1.7L 4cyl engine- pretty fast...for a 1.7L 4 banger, lol. Only had 19,200 miles on her when I got her and only has 23,500 right now. It is very reliable, but I got from my grandmother, so it sat a while. So, it's probably getting an allignment very soon (in the next day or two: 1/9-10/11). It is also not fully loaded-only had a cassette player, no rear cup holders, etc. lmbo. Great gas mileage at 32 MPG or so (averaged: city & highway). Very comfortable cloth seats, good quality build; vinyl on the dash though. Factory radio hit hard, but I have a Kenwood KDC-MP445U in it now, and it has 2 12" MTX Audio Subs w/ a MTX Audio TNA-251 amp & a MTX Audio EBC- all which turn other people's heads. They're like "LOL RICE!..Holy S#!T, nevermind!" or "Lol grandma-OMG that Civic just made me spill my soda!" haha. Bangin sound system in an economy car- awesome. Hell of a fun for me, especially as my first car, haha.

Pros

dependable, good gas milage

Cons

Excellenty for someone single, not for someone with children

Dependable Stylish Civic — This is a wonder vehicle. It has served me well over the years. It still gets great gas milage (32-36 mpg) after 6 years. Only a few blemishes in the paint from rock chips over time. I have only had to complete the normal maintance schedule on it. Besides new tires and a battery. The only downside is it is not a family car. With two children now it is not feasible for two children in car seats. In the process of search for a new vehcile for this reason. However I still plan to keep the civic because of its realiabilty.

Pros

Excellent reliability, good mileage, a solid car for the money

Cons

Original tires among the worst made in recent decades.

Good, Solid (albeit Uninspiring) Transportation. But Get New Tires. — This is actually my wife's car that she bought new, 2 years before we became engaged. Obviously this is not a fast car and not a luxury car. It's a compact car for someone on a budget. But it fills that role VERY well. Its reliability has probably been the best of any car I've been associated with. After 6+ years and 55,000+ miles, the only unscheduled maintenance has been a tightening of the belts. The a/c was making a strange whooping noise occasionally, but it works perfectly, so that was a very minor annoyance... The room is adequate. We have a baby now, the car seat is in the middle (of the rear bench, obviously), and there's still room for people to sit on the side - not comfortably, but they can make it. The performance is what you'd expect for the money. Not great. I've been a little annoyed sometimes trying to merge out of a cloverleaf. It understeers like a front-driver usually does. But none of these are terrible flaws - you get what you pay for, and if you're even looking at this car you obviously don't want high performance. It's just a good compact sedan. One black spot on this car: the original tires were HORRIBLE. Just check out tire rack if you want to see some awful reviews. They wore poorly, provided marginal traction even on dry pavement, and were terrible in wet and snow. By now, though, it should be almost impossible to find any original tires on this car - they will have long since expired.

I love the fuel economy and driving a small car!

Cons

After 150k miles and several owners, I think she's just tired and worn down. BUT, being a Honda, I have no real problems with her.

Great Little Car! — She's a bit old, but for a first car I love her. She gives me no problems and gets great gas mileage. I'm able to fit 5 people in her, which is necessary in college for road trips. I also love that she's manual-- it's the best way to learn!

Buy It It's Worth It — This car is definitely a keeper. It lasts a long time as far as maintenance goes. It is great on gas. It could use a little bit more backseat room. But besides that it's a great car overall I recommend this to everybody.

Good Car — Im in the Automotive business(32 years) and have been since I was in high school and have driven a lot of different vehicles so Im not a big Honda guy I think they are over rated but they are very reliable and will go forever if you take care of it just like anything in life but think that there is a lot of other cars out there that are just as reliable for a lot less money but I would recommend this vehicle to someone as a good car overall.

Reliable & Nimble — I love the car's appearance and style. Quality and reliability are optimum for the car class, Mileage is good very economical. It will accelerate fast if you understand its 5 speed power band. I enjoy driving it a great deal.

Pros

Solid car, very quiet engine, roomy even though it doesn't seem big from outside, economical ride, great daily driver.

Cons

115HP is not enough for this car. I think it needs to be 140HP and this will put smile on my face, but my wife is not complaining, so it's all good...

One Of The Most Dependable Cars On The Road... — Honda is legendary for it's reliability and this car reaffirms this fact. No "bells and whistles" but you have what you need in a car and all you have to worry about is put gas in it (not too often) and change the oil.

Pros

Easy to drive and amazing gas mileage on the hwy.  I was getting like 40 mi to the gallon.

Cons

None really, unless you want more power.  Car was a little underpowered.

Great Daily Driver! — This car is awesome if you are looking for something that will get you from point "a" to point "b". It was the first car that I owned and I miss it, but got a better car in its lieu. Power windows and locks and a functional dash all make this car pretty awesome.
