Great For The Commute To Work — This car is a great improvement in gas mileage from my last car. The increase in MPG alone is about as much as a car payment. Rides and handles well. Good value for a used vehicle. I imagine this would have been a great ride new.

Road noise

Almost Perfect — This car hasn't had a repair performed in 7 years and 70k of mixed driving. If this car had more road noise isolation it would be perfect. Easy ingress-egress, the driving position is great, controls are simple and well placed. Power is ok but at 38-40 mpg highway driving it strikes the perfect balance. It is as solid, rattle and squeak free as the day it was delivered. Handling is excellent. The interior is designed with high quality materials. The leather seats look new. I paid $23K for this car new and it's worth $10 to 11K today. For a small economical car I find it difficult to believe there's anything better.

Pros

The above stars are in relation to other sport compact cars. This is really one of the best cars I've ever owned. Reliable, fast, handles very well. Love the short throw shifter, and the engine response is instant, a very fun to car to heel toe.

Cons

Low end torque is a minor issue, but thats part of the fun of this car, keeping it in its power band pays off

Couldn't Ask For A Better Vehicle — For a family sized sedan, Civics are stylish while being comfortable. It got me to Virginia and I was comfortable the entire time! They have little to no serious maintenance issues and only went to the shop to get routine oil changes. The money this car saved me in gas was incredible and most definitely saved me thousands of dollars after switching from an SUV. While not being incredibly sporty and fast, my Civic was a blast to drive and I would most definitely recommend these vehicles to anyone looking for a fun vehicle with great fuel economy.

Great Car — The most reliable and fuel efficient car I have owned. The interior is larger than one might expect, and comfortable. Great handling and visibility. Very good sound system. Convenient features like steering wheel controls; easy to see gauge cluster; heated seats; pass-thru back seat.

Mr. Civic — The honda civic is a great commuter car. I currently have 94K on the odometer, treat the car like crap, and have no issues. Just oil, gas and go. At 30+MPG how can you go wrong with the civic ?

White Suit, Black Shoes — I simply love this car, just wish I wasn't experiencing problems with it. I've got a cracked visor, broken A/C, and recently replaced fuel pump. Running about 63,000 miles on this car shouldn't present all these issues. I've also heard of other potential problems with this car including a possibility of a cracked engine block as well as abnormal and premature wear on the tires due to insufficient quality of the cars arms.
