I'd highly recommend the Honda civic !!The Bluetooth hands-free cellphone system, satellite navigation, voice recognition functions are exceptionally clear and uncomplicated to use. As a 6ft 2in male the front & back seats are surprisingly spacious & well shaped for long road trips. Most of all, with driving teenagers the safety features were the biggest sell points.
Excellent Commuter Car! Great Bang for Your Buck!

This is a fantastic commuter car. I drive 130 miles a day round trip, five days a week for work. I have gotten up to 42.5 miles per gallon on the highway and my average is 37.5 miles per gallon for an entire take of gas. I do a lot of high traffic driving in the Washington DC area, so this kind of mileage is great! The car handles great and is pretty comfortable for its size and class. Bang for the buck, you really can't go wrong. Yes, there are cars on the market that get better mileage, but Honda's long term reliability is hard to beat.
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.
