With gas prices so high only Hybrids can do better for mileage. This car has high interior noise, the seats are not that comfortable and rust is showing up in the rear quater panels but that is about the end of the bad stuff. Almost 283K miles, no major engine work and average mileage is around 40 MPG. It handles well and keeps up in city traffic no problem. I have seen several civics customized but this one won't see that kind of work until the engine goes.
Great mileage and very low general operating costs. Hatch back area has more room than it appears. Can haul lots of stuff with seats down.
A quieter interior and more comfortable seats would be the only needed improvements
