I test drove 2 other cars prior to test driving the Civic. Once I returned from the test drive, I decided not to test drive any other vehicles. I like the layout of the car, the comfort and feel while seated in it. It wasn't my first choice but was the car I decided on after the test drive.
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.
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.
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.
