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.
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.
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.
