2012 Honda CivicMarjorie - North Attleboro, MA03/04/2015
I've driven a Nissan Sentra for the last 20 years. If one had been available when I was looking at cars, I probably would have bought it. Instead I decided to spend more and get a Honda. I can't say there is much difference between the two cars, but I'm hoping the Honda will hold its value longer. I've only had it three months so I can't talk about the repair costs or even mileage, but I am enjoying my Civic and think I made the right choice.

It's an incredible car - I love how intuitive the controls are. My only complaints are (1) the display with the spedometer tends to reflect on the windshield at night, limiting visibility and (2) the rear window gets very foggy/blurry depending on the weather, and the defroster isn't very quick to clear it up. Aside from those two issues, there's not a bad thing I can say about my car!

Respectable MPG's for a four seat sport compact, I have averaged 27.5 mpg over the life of the car. The helical limited slip front diff on the Si puts the power down well in traction limited situations. Handling is excellent and predictable once you fit better summer only tires. By far the biggest perk though is the wonderful K24 engine and fantastic six speed manual in the Si. Probably one of the best shifting manual transmissions on the market. The K24 has been 100% reliable and loves to spend life near redline.
