Ambivalent — i can easily get 40 mpg with this car. not as fun as my previous accord but ehhh...it's fine to own. acceleration is a tad slow, breaking is ok, handles pretty well in any condition. overall not a bad vehicle.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: awesome gas milage

Good Little Car — Performance - What performance?...It's a stock civic. Build Quality - It's a Honda, very little exceeds Honda. Appearance - Considering the mileage, very good shape Cost of Ownership - Just fuel, that's it. Fun Factor - Basically, the car is just like the Energizer Bunny, and you're never worried about breaking down.

Pros: Reliability, Fuel Economy, Low Maintenence

Cons: Power/Weight Ratio, Road Noise,

>love This Car> — Performance - acceleration quite good, but it is best for slalom. Quality is great, only money car is taking - for tires, oil, filters and none for repairs. "Honda - make it your self" this car is made to be tuned - it's wery easy... Maintaince cost wery low. Mileage - less than 70k And yes. It's fun.

Pros: Economics, easy to handle, easy to modificate.

Cons: Lack of power in stock model.

Honda Civic - Just Noise? —

It is often said that the Italian Government is capable of making a lot of noise without actually getting anywhere...well this must be the automotive alternative. Performance wise, 115bhp is all you get from a 1.5, and that is only available at about 5,000rpm (the engine can rev to 6,800rpm easily!). Handling and acceleration are a bit to be desired, but that is my own fault, due to the 'sound system' in the boot. Understeer is horrendous on any surface and the brakes have a tendency to overheat quickly...so it is not reallt a car to push on in. Not much to be said about build quality, other than it's built like a Honda (the only problems so far have been losing ABS and the indicator cancelation...but they have repaired themselves) The appearance is enough to make children sick, it is ugly! The exterior looks like a Bee with a bit of botox, and the inside is just grey plastic on top of grey plastic. The seats are extremely uncomfortable, and the ride is not helped by the stiff suspension. Overall, not very plesant. Fuel consumption is terrible, especially if you drive it properly, which in turn would mean you get through quiet a bit of engine oil. More importantly, however, is the driving experience...which is brilliant! Thanks to a new intake and exhaust, the noise it makes is biblical, and if you rev it into the Vtec, it just goes mental. Even when you drop it down to 3rd at about 70mph, you have silence followed by a kick followed by a loud electronic scream, which is exciting. So if the road is clear, no speed cameras and you have enough fuel, it would be hugely fun, but on the other 364 days of the year, the ride and the greyness is impossible to live with...logic says I should have just kept the Corsa and undone all the crap modifications I did on a budget!

Pros: Built like a Honda...Revs like a Honda.

Cons: Accelerates like a van, handles like a van and about as comfortable as being stabbed!

Unkillable Civic — I wish I could kill it. I've tried my best but it seems like this car just wont die. Downshifting from the fifth into the second gear won't even do it. My next attempt will involve either a cliff or rock pile. Stay tuned.

Pros: can't kill it

Cons: can't kill it

My Whip! — Love that it's mine...when it's done i'll be happy. Already got a lot of stuff done; engine, tranny, rims, lowered, sound system, exhaust, seats, shirt shifter, gauges, etc...a lot more to come! For a 4 door family sedan, it moves pretty good

Pros: It's mine!

Cons: It's not done yet

Honda Power! — You can get parts anywhere, and usually easy to find. Performance wise, they can be built to be pretty fast with the right amount of money. They are cheap to buy. It is always fun to drive and it's my 3rd one. I'd buy another one!

Pros: Cheap to maintain

Cons: Easy to steal, so you have to protect it!

The car was a super great deal and that was why it sold before I could make up my mind. It was one of those “to good to be true “ deals. That is why I hesitated. Read More
