Just Plain Transportation — Want a car that will last you 15 to 20 years and you only have to change the oil and put brake pads on it? Want to look like everyone else on the road and totally blend in with the crowd? Do you only drive with one other person in the world and two small children or pets? Then the Honda Civic is for you. Great commuter car as it will certainly will not distract anyone with its looks nor attract the attention of police. Its a Honda Civic champion of the un-cool vehicles and defender of all things four cylinder. Some may argue that Civics can be cool but slapping one of those buzz bomb mufflers and nice rims and tires does not turn it into a sports car.

Great Car! — This 2005 honda civic is a very reliable car. Its engine is very strong. Very good in gas . The only con i can say about this car is that it is not big enough for a huge family. Besides that its a great car

Reliable — Still the head of its class, the 2005 Honda Civic is the most refined, solidly built economy car on the market. Fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly engine, roomy interior, reputation for durability and quality, impressive crash test scores. Great for a commuter, or student!

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.

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.
