2010 Honda CivicMr T - Ft Lauderdale, FL01/13/2016
For basic transportation this generation of Civic is intrinsically fun to drive. The handling is spirited and acceleration is lively, especially with the manual transmission. Visibility is somewhat compromised with the coupe; it has thick A-pillars that obstruct some angles while making turns and small rear windows. The base sound system is more than adequate and the control layout of the dash is very easy to use. Compared to other coupes of this price range the Civic has a more usable back seat, especially with head room. Civics are rather noisy (wind and tire noise) but you can't have everything. With safety, frugality, style, and fun, this little Civic is a good first car for any kid.
Having done commuting and long road trips I can say without absolute confidence that I love this car. My 2012 Honda Civic EX-L is fuel efficient, sporty, has enough power to get off an exit ramp or into traffic. It has enough storage to fit enough luggage for a beach or camping trip. The stereo sounds great. I'm 6'1" and I have no issues with legroom. My son hasn't complained once about comfort in the back seat while on those long car rides.
EX-L model; I enjoy the amenities and love the sunroof. A little more than I wanted to pay but worth it. Can't believe with everything it does have that it does not have a compass! I miss that from my old car. And with everything electronic now, the radio doesn't show the name of the song playing on the radio? This is odd to me. The gas mileage highway is around 28 instead of the 39 it is rated. Bummer since that was the reason for me purchasing this car.
