2013 Honda CivicPaul Stoshak - Cherry Hill, NJ03/02/2016
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.
A super SAFE car at an affordable price.
2012 Honda CivicLori - Delaware, OH01/16/2015
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 build quality that's both fun and economical
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.
So you’re considering a Honda Accord as your next car. It’s a good choice—the Accord is very highly-regarded in any of its available variants. Plus, it combines good gas mileage with lively performance and plenty of interior space. For those who enjoy the experience of driving, Accords are known for their firm ride, good handling, and responsive steering.
