    Honda Civic — Very responsive acceleration, solid braking, aerodynamic. Easy to takeover others. Sporty interior & exterior. Love the long dashboard. Finally can enjoy speeding and still get efficient mileage. Cheap maintenance too. Just need to get some sporty rims, type-R bodykits and sound system....

    Pros: Sporty driving

    Cons: none so far

    Honda Civic 1.8v Mt — Nothing comes closer to pure exhilaration than driving the Civic. It is the ultimate combination of style, luxury and technology that has to be experienced to be believed.The Civic has features that will move you like no other car. I could neva beleive sitting in the futuristic cockpit that I was driving a car ........ It looks like a F-16 on road !!!!!

    Pros: 5-spoke, 15" wheels, Dual Exhaust Pipe Finisher, Integrated 2 DIN/AM/FM, 6 CD Changer, MP3/WMA

    Cons: price > 30,000$

    2006 Civic — I love this car. It has great handling and the car is reliable because it is a Honda.The only rattle in the car right now is the glove compartment shakes every now and then. Honda did a great job in designing this car. It looks nice and clean cut. I would recommend this car to a friend because of its reliability, performance, and the fact that it it is just fun to drive around. The car gives great gas mileage so you can travel around a lot more. Especially with gas prices so high.

    Pros: Fun to drive.

    Cons: Not the mosy powerful car in the world.

    2006 Civic Ex Manual Sedan — The Civic is a very pleasing and practical economy car, but no more. Straight-line performance is adequate. The 1.8- liter engine needs to be kept above 3000 rpm for best results, although with a 6800 rpm redline it's pretty flexible. At town speeds below 50 mph, there is rarely a power deficit, but you will wish for more power on the interstate, especially above 80 mph. The 5-speed gearbox is good, with a relatively positive feel and low effort but long shifter throws. It does not match up to the 6-speed available in the Si. The clutch has a very short travel, which results in some rough starts until you get used to it, but is low-effort enough that stop-and-go is easy. Handling is the car's strongest attribute. The steering is extremely light, but precise and communicative. The suspension offers excellent body control through bumps and a taut, but not harsh, ride. Like any front-drive car, consistent understeer is the only thing happening at the limit, but if you drive at the limit you should not have a Civic. The stock Michelins are biased toward a soft ride and should be replaced with something better, although I have not. The excellent handling and lightweight feel make the car very satisfying in city traffic. I notice this most when I drive rental cars; after my Civic, they always feel heavy, ponderous, and reluctant to change direction or stop. As usual with economy cars, there is a fair degree of both engine and tire noise on tap, although wind noise is unusually absent even above 80 mph. Braking is adequate with the 4-wheel discs on the EX. (I would not want to buy an LX with its rear drum brakes.) The pedal will fade with repeated hard stops, and the ABS kicks in a bit too quickly. The interior is quite roomy for this class. Seats are firm and fairly comfortable, although not up to the standard of the Accord/TSX/TL. The interior materials are good for the class, but cannot match up to those used on larger and more expensive cars. As is typical of Honda and Acura, interior parts have a lightweight feel that may bother those used to Mercedes-Benz solidity (for example), although the actual build quality is good and the parts are very durable. My car has an unfortunate rattle from somewhere in the moonroof area which I have been unable to isolate but feels otherwise very solid. Thoughtful Honda touches include plenty of closeable storage, two power ports, and a well- placed auxiliary input (right next to one power port; EX only) for the stereo. Strangely, there is no sunglass holder. The moonroof (EX only) only slides; it does not tilt for ventilation. The driver's seat is height-adjustable and features adjustable lumbar support. The two-level dashboard is the car's most controversial feature, but I like it. I love the digital speedo above the wheel, although a redundant analog speedo would also be helpful. The large central tach is nice as well. Secondary controls are typical of Honda in that they are relatively intuitive but feature many buttons and look a bit cluttered. The gas mileage is quite good. Tanks have ranged from a low of 19 mpg (1- or 2- mile city trips for the entire tank) to a high of 42 mpg (driving at 50- 55 mph on the highway). Typical mileage in my almost all city driving is about 27-28. The car has required no unscheduled maintenance and only two oil changes as scheduled maintenance. I would definitely recommend the Civic to someone looking for a driver-centered economy car, provided they understand it is not a luxury or sports car and will not feel or perform like one.

    Pros: Excellent handling, good fuel economy, excellent build quality, comfortable interior

    Cons: Noisy, brakes and engine only adequate, unexciting

    My Civic 2006 — my 2006 civic i-vtec is a good car. the performance is more than what i thought which makes it amazing beyond the class. Build quality is good and i have not a single problem until now. This car cost me only a little fuel and can drive to 400km approximately for full tank, depends how you drive. service cost isn't that expensive, it's reasonable. my civic is fun to drive because it eats 6 cd with mp3 player, so you can have hundreds of songs in your car. The good thing is i never feel tired when once i drive for 3 hours straight. Overall, i like this civic for performance, reliability, efficient, and good looks

    Pros: performance, looks, efficient, and fun

    Cons: none

    A Great Car — Very good car well built and reliable. performance is good for its class and the fuel economy is excellent. The car is fun and modern especially with its split level dash and digital speedo. It may be a little over priced compared to other cars in its class but with the cost of servicing being so cheap I believe it's worth it

    Pros: good fuel economy and a fun car

    Cons: a little over priced

    Maintaining A Solid Reputation — I have driven this car for nearly three years and over 60,000 miles and it still feels new--it is a very solid car for a non-luxury make. While the engine is small, (1.8L,140hp) the manual transmission allows this car to get up to speed when it needs to. The small engine also leads to great mileage -- as much as 38mpg for straight highway driving although I typically average in the mid-30's. Best of all, after three years, I still have trouble taking my eyes off this car.

    Pros: attractive, solidly-built

    Cons: Initial price, simple mp3 player
