This car is excellent, however the inconveniences of the vehicle bring down its rating. There are plenty of good cars at this price range, however I would recommend the Chevy Sonic RS. With relatively similar economy and power the Sonics cargo space and 5 seats make it the clear choice.
Excellent Commuter Car! Great Bang for Your Buck!
2012 Honda CivicRobert K - Edgewater, MD07/16/2015
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.
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.
