ROAD NOISE. Cloth seats don't have the best fabric.

Great Car - Some Drawbacks — I like my car. it's efficient, simple, and good looking. The imid display, steering wheel controls are super nice. I like the built-in phone and the adjustability of the steering wheel and seats. I'm not happy with the road noise or the comfort of the seats for long trips. Its a great car for what it is though. Much cheaper than similarly appointed Toyota Prius.

Pros

Looks good, handles well. A bit high priced for what the car is overall, but I Honda has earned a reputation for long lasting cars. So I bought the car with this in mind.

Cons

Steering wheel controls are a bit cheap, the paint has started to wear off from repeated touching - perhaps use a longer lasting material for these?

Decent Looking, Economical, Compact Family Car. — I love the fuel economy of this car. I also includes bluetooth technology, hands free mobile connectivity. The "eco" function does help improve fuel economy, at the expense of engine power but is a great feature for highway driving. I'm hoping the get many more years of reliability and great fuel economy from this car.

A Great Bundle Of Stylishness, Efficiency, And Technology — I loved everything above: the alloy wheels, leather seats, Bluetooth, and Gas consumption. It's pretty stylish and comfortable. Fun to drive and a nice car to own. Honda cars are expensive brand-new, but they last a long time and just keep on going and going. I had a 1996 Honda Accord, and currently have an 2003 Acura MDX and 2010 Honda Odyssey. They are great cars. Overall, it gets 5 stars!

Economy Size Car — Like the reliability, features such as bluetooth, xm radio, easy accessibility, cruise control, digital speedometer, leather seats, sun roof, alloy wheels, gas mileage, maintenance, exterior color black, and interior color light grey. Dislike the annoying seat belt noise but it's good for safe measure.

Civic Cng 2012 — Not as powerful as gas model brakes are under powered with 4 passengers. Car is super smooth, long trips are very easy and refueling take minutes. Car had capacity to go well over 300k miles and never needing a rebuild due to internal upgrades that Honda makes to this vehicle. Enjoy years of excellence from Hondas top of the line civic.

Fun Car To Drive — The styling is clean and crisp. Heated seats and mirrors are a great plus. 60/40 split rear seats nice for extra cargo space, if needed. iMid displays good information or can be personalized with photos. Overall, excellent car for the montey

Great Second Car. — This car met all of our expectations for a second car. It is comfortable and roomy. We drove the car on a few long trips and we're very satisfied with the performance. We liked the economy, looks, performance and reliability.
