Good For Daily Driver — If your looking to drive something to work and back this is it. Would recommend, I have 195k on the clock and still running strong. Maintenance is very minimum and it averages 34-35mpg on highway and around 30 in the city if you keep it below 70mph.

I've Been Very Happy With This Vehicle. I Bought It With 16,000 Miles. — It's a fun car to dive. The gear shifter is located in the dash, just below the radio. A different position that I've grown to like. The seats are comfortable. I've been happy with the performance and power. I commuted over 500 miles per week.

Great Older Sedan — This was the first car I drove and I have a lot of respect for it. In the time I've been driving it, I've only done the regular scheduled maintenance and replaced the front bushings (the rubber begins to crack as it gets older, so no surprises there.) It's a very small engine with decent torque, but you aren't going to race anyone besides other old sedans. My biggest concern is that there isn't much weight on the front end, so it's been a fairly regular occurrence of spinning the front drive wheels when the road is wet or loose rock.

Loved It — It rides smooth, has alot of space, great for family trips, or simply getting back and forth to work. Great on gas. Very comfortable. I would recommend this car for anyone that wants something that saves you money. Great miles on the highway and the street as well.

Perfect Car For Everyday Drive. — I like pretty much everything about this car, except size. It was good before, but now when I have family it got too small for me. Except that there are only pluses, especially gas mileage. Maintenance is one of the cheapest and easiest on the market.

Little Blue Civic — Great Overall car to drive. Fun, sporty, reliable. Not quite big enough now that we are a family of five with a dog as well. Really need to up grade to a mini van as soon as it is possible.

Pros

Great fuel economy, handling and reliability.  It's a Honda.  Manual transmission puts you more in control in bad driving conditions.  Perfect city car.

Cons

Low power, limited cargo and passenger capacity.  Not a pick the kids and two friends up from soccer practice type of ride.

Everything I Needed To Learn About Life I Learned Over 7 Years And 80000 Miles In A Honda Civic — It's about the right balance between economy and style. This car provided both. The two door coupe with a 5 speed stick made the ride feel sporty and the 34 highway mpg made the owner feel like he wasn't an irresponsible jerk. If you're living in the city or looking for a practical commuter that will last you neigh on to the end of days, this is your ride. Lastly, my next car will be another Honda. That decision was made many miles ago and has only been reaffirmed by the reliability of both the car, the retention of the vehicles market value and the Honda dealerships and service people I've met along the way.

Great Little Car — My wife calls it "zippy" but I don't think it's that fast. A little noisy at highway speeds but awesome gas mileage. I've gotten over 40MPG on the highway. Maintenance has been oil changes and tires. It's comfortable but a little cramped for long trips with a full passenger load. Seats 5 but 4 is really max if you are on any kind of a long trip. We are approaching 150,000 miles with no problems. It is fun to drive, handles very well.

Honda Civic Hybrid — I like the gas mileage this car gets versus other cars. I like the way it handles pretty smoothly compared to other cars. It is a great family car and a great commuting car. I'm thinking of selling this in order to buy a newer hybrid.
