Its Great For A Single Couple Or Some One Whos Going To School — I like this car because it saves me alot of gas, and its very easy to drive it because its not a big car. Its a great car for a small family or for some one that goes to school/college. It will get you where ever you need to be safely nd at a very low cost. The car looks brand new from inside, has a very nice stereo with bluetooth. It runs great at any speed.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Reliable, Sporty Civic — Reliability, durability, and overall a great car. I purchased this car a few years ago, and it has been amazing to drive it near, far, and around. It's very comfortable, and I love having the satisfaction that it brings every day.

Its Good For What Its Meant To Do. — I hate the color. Gold . I wish it was manual transmission . It is a very reliable car . Hopefully I will be able to keep it for 500,000 miles plus . It is a very good car to commute back and forth to work in.

Unstoppable — This was my first new car, and first Honda, in 10 years only two flat tires, other than that zero problems, I can tell this car will go forever, nice presence for a car made in 2003, I would highly recommend Honda.

Meh — This car is great on gas and great for long trips, but personally I am a big guy and I feel very cramped in this car. I also wish it had more power. I used to have a '95 accord and personally would rathe have that car than this one.

Very Dependable Car. — I like that it is very fuel economic, easy to steer, very dependable, easy maintenance, HONDA vehicles keep their value up, great car for school or work, second owner, has power locks/ windows/ mirrors. Have no complaints about this car.

Utilitarian Eco-box — Inexpensive car to own. Not an engaging car to drive, it just goes from A to B and gets the job done. Not very comfortable for tall humans. Relatively easy to work on as far as mechanicals go. Wife likes the small size, I feel vulnerable in such a small cage.

Primary Use: Family transportation

A Very Solid, Basic, Car. — It's a solid daily driver, and a great car for any driver. It doesn't have a lot of power, but it isn't under powered. The top end over 70 MPH is a little disappointing. The interior is nothing special, but then again its a mid/low commuter car. I can be a little noisy on the highway. There's plenty of room in both the front and rear seats. Keep up on the basic maintainence and it will easily last you 200,000+ miles

Civic — Honda Civic is the most fuel efficient car, recommend this for you to own it and buy it from Honda. If you are a Honda driver you can save money. 40mpg and very low maintenance cost, excellent quality and design work.

Extremely Quick/agile 5-speed/manual Trans Vehicle - Very Fun To Drive & Economical At The Same Time — Fast/Efficient but low/small vehicle Note: it's small on the outside but spacious in the inside. 5-Speed/Manual - Use it for work (M-F) on a 18 mile drive (mostly on highway). Owned for 6 years- Great Mechanical Wonder!
