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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gas saver special!! Safe alternative fuel vehicle that needs no extended charging periods and uses good ol USA natural gas.

Cons: Does not have the passing power most other cars have you will save on fuel and maintainance

I test-drove a 2012 Honda Civic at Reinhardt Toyota in Montgomery, AL. It was a sweet ride. Heated leather seats, sunroof, lots of power, and a beautiful light blue color, but ultimately passed on it to instead buy a Prius.
