    Not A Family Car — This was a Honda Civic Type-R, 2.0 petrol with VTEC. I bought it from new and sold it at three years, partly because I was bored with its good features and began to see the disadvantages more clearly. You really need to drive this car, but its performance and road holding was superb, although its turning circle wasn't great and could be hard to park in some car parks. I was getting about 240 miles/tank which means that I was spending more time at the garage than I wanted. It has the most flexible gearbox I have ever used, it just doesn't care. The only repairs I had to have done were body work repairs. I like its cut down look, and butch radiator grill, but its not for everyone's taste. On the down side, it is very noisy, exacerbated by the VTEC engine which delivers its best acceleration at 6000 rpm +. Sloppy driving can lead to a very jerky ride for passengers, and the Recarro seats arn't always very comfortable for longer journeys.

    Pros: flexible gear box, butch looks, reliable

    Cons: incredibly noisy, small fuel tank and water reservoir, not very comfortable for longer journies

    I Love My Civic :) — Not a particularly fast or luxury car, but I still absolutely love it. I love the way it looks and I'm doing some mods and there are so many choices for Civics... I got it for a great price with not a lot of miles and I get pretty great gas milage.

    Pros: Everything o:)

    Cons: Slow-ish acceleration

    Good Commuter Car — I bought this car for my 150 mile daily commute. It started out at 36mpg and 90,000 miles later, it gets 30-32mpg. Interior build quality is average. 2006 model has all of the improvements I wish mine had. I wouldn't call it a fun car to drive but it is dependable.

    Pros: Good gas mileage. Dependable. No repairs needed to date.

    Cons: It's a commuter car.

    2005 Honda Civc Dx — I got the value package so it was real cheap but not a good build quality, and lacking in performance transmission build, brakes, and style. The performance is there and has potential but doesn't really have much pick up even at upper RPMs but it corners nice, just too much body roll and lacking in breaking power despite the low body weight. engine is a Honda so its great engine they should have just put more thought into the build quality of the interior

    Pros: Good engine, strong car, great economy

    Cons: crummy interior, no performance

    Great Car — I love this car. In my opinion, the exterior looks better than the 8th gen civics. It could use some more power, but you can't beat 35 mpg. The interior is much better than others in its class with a very clean looking dash and center stack. Back seat leg room is adequate and there's plenty of room for cargo in the huge trunk. I bought it new 3 years and almost 40000 miles ago and I haven't had any problems. My only real complaint is that at highway speeds there is a little more road noise than I would like. I would also invest in some different tires if you plan on much winter driving since the stock tires don't offer much grip in the snow.

    Pros: very reliable, great interior, 35 mpg

    Cons: road noise, a little lite on power.

    Pros: fun fun fun

    Cons: i don't know what to buy next

    Civic Type R — Fantastic car; in my opinion there is very little that comes close for the money. Tried the VXR, ST and GTi, no where near. The R26 is just as good a drive but totally different power delivery. I use mine as a daily drive and it's as at home on a B road blast as it is cruising on the motorway.

    Pros: Handling, engine, looks and feel

    Cons: Not a lot, bit crashy but wouldn't have it any other way! LSD + Brembos standard would be a bonus
