I am a two-time Honda owner. I drove an Accord for more than a decade and when it was time to retire it I decided to downsize to the Civic. Even though my Civic lacked the bells and whistles that my Accord had (sunroof, leather interior, etc.) I thought it was a great car. Unfortunately, I only had the chance to drive it for three months before it was totaled in a HORRIBLE crash. I was not seriously injured in the wreck. For this reason I will be buying another Honda Civic.
Good quality, economical option for normal driving
While not reving the car constantly, have achieved 30-32 mpg even with constant ac running and mostly maintaining road speed. Interior dash panel is directed at an angle to driver and passenger so that air vents target the riders. Backup camera is very helpful while navigating in reverse into tight spots. The pricetag is reasonable for the quality and model year.
This car has gotten over 43 miles to the gallon in some instances. It has just enough power to do what you need. The car is fairly technologically advanced. The speedometer is digital and has a display that indicates what song is playing. Additionally the car is fitted with Bluetooth, a USB plug in and has a CD player. Fairly reliable. Have had no issues with the vehicle so far.
However there are downfalls. I am 6 foot 3 inches. I could not fit in the Honda Civic EX model because of the sunroof. I am still a bit cramped in the LX model but it's nothing you can't get used to. Additionally after about four hours of continuous driving the seats become almost unbearable to sit in.
