Pros

economical

Cons

rattles handling is below average

35

City Cruser — it squeaks and rattles, but very economical, spare parts are cheap and fuel consumption is low, quite comfortable, cost of ownership is on the average, it's quite fun the gears shift is smooth handling is below average, acceleration is poor.

Pros

Gas-efficient, looks nice, great steering, hugs curves real well, spacious, good trunk space (you can fit like 3 people in there lol), etc.

Cons

The only con I can think of is the acceleration. That doesn't even really bother me, though.

35

I Love My Fuel-efficient Car. — My Civic gets about 32 hwy mpg. It's white with a kind of beige fabric interior. I'm not too excited about the acceleration. Sometimes it accelerates well, but most of the time you have to push it a little to get it to really go. It brakes really well, and has great handling. Overall, it's just a great car for anyone to drive.

Great commute vehicle

Cons

very basic with no amenities available.

Honda Civic Hybrid Commuter — Great commuter, but not comfortable for more 2 hours at a time. After many problem with my last vehicle I bought this car cause I did not want to deal with any problems or hassles. Oil change every 7500 miles and service yet at 75k miles. I will be sure to put it in for service one I break that 100k mark. Plus this car doesn't look as horrible as a Prius.

Can't Go Wrong! — Great handling, decent gas mileage. Much roomier than you would think and lots of fun to drive. Have not had much repair work done in 5 years the car holds up really well to rough driving. Highly recommended to anyone who asks!

Pros

spacious, smooth engine, transmission. reasonable gas mil.

Cons

Different Vtec system.

25

Ep3 Hatch — Slightly lacking in power, yet new k20 is better, and smoother and previous B series. The hatchback provides plenty of cargo space when needed, and gives comfortable back seats. Although a shift location might be little awkward at first, but it can be dealt with.
