I bought the car for a specific reason and that is economy. Recently on my way from Fl to Ky I got 40 mpg. If you want sizzling acceleration or a lot of power then don't consider this car. It carries four people with no problem. In mountainous terrain it shifts down to maintain speed but I expected that. It's a great car.
I love my car, I use to only be a Chevy girl but this lil Civic is a great car. It's made very well, it's smooth to drive, it's great on gas and it's really cute. There is only one thing I dislike about it and that is the radio is built into the dash so you cannot change it out but other than that I will more then likely own another civic. The Civic is up against the Cobolt in the Chevy class and the Cobolt is an horribly designed car all the way around. I give two huge thumbs up to the Honda Civic...
It just does everything incredibly well.

After test driving many of its competitors, I found the Civic SI to be the highest overall quality. It isn't one of those cars that does any particular thing better than another, but it was the one I drove that I found did everything incredibly well. Comfort and driveability is on par for modern Honda, which means it typically "feels" like a higher-cost car. Acceleration is terrific and the exhaust note is outstanding, particularly over 4k (and I also own an S2000!). Distance driving is passable, but I'm considering swapping to a 16 or 17 inch wheel. It's a bit rough on segmented highways, but everything else is just fine. The interior is MUCH better quality than the competition, Ford should definitely be taking notes!
