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.
Can't recommend it enough!

Typical classic Honda in every aspect! I feel like I got a much more expensive car! It's peppy & nimble, sips fuel, has above average for the class interior materials/quality, loads of tech, and excellent visibility even with the sleek styling. One of the most standout features for me personally is the Brake Hold that holds the brake and relieves your foot. Much appreciated in heavy LA traffic! Also love Apple Carplay that allows me to bring up phone functions like navigation from my iPhone. No need to pay extra for factory or aftermarket units! The only con is the small trunk opening that has me being more careful loading bulky items. Rear seats do split and fold for more space!
Very smooth, I get on average 44+ mpg on the highway. I take trips all the time to NY, NJ, PA, Maine, and VT for races so the fact that my gas mileage is that high definitely saves a lot on gas. Rides very quiet as well, not like an electric car but way quieter than my old 2008 Mazda RX-8
