I purchased my Civic about 2 years ago from a college kid who'd lost his license and was really happy with the car initially.
However, I think mainly due to very, very bad mechanics (took mine to a national chain that shall remain nameless) I'm pretty sure they're the reason why my head gasket went after only owning the car 1.5 yrs.
I paid 2k for the car and put over another 2k into it for repairs.
Horrible experience but I still love Honda.
I was trying to buy another Civic albeit a newer model, but ended up with a Corolla instead-the price was right and I've owned a Corolla before.
I'd still buy a Honda in a heartbeat as this was a solid vehicle until it was mistreated by idiots.

Ever since we bought this car, it has given me nothing but problems.
The first day I had it, the passenger door handle broke, next the windshield wipers fell off. The car doesn't beep at me when I leave the lights on, which resulted in several dead batteries. (yes, I realize that this is operator error, but still) It broke down four hours from home, leaving me stuck in gas/service station for a day and a half. Just about everything was wrong with it...timing belt (which we specifically were told was fine) radiator, among other issues.
Then the AC went out...then something else broke down, it started making funny noises and shuddering, smelling weird, acting like a stick shift...it's scary.

I bought this car used with 202k miles on it.
I've had it just over a year and it's not got 220k.
It consistently gets 39 mpg combined (it has the 1.5L Vtec motor).
We've had to put some work into it; CV axles, tie rods, control arms and ball joints; but this has been well worth the time and $ put into it.
This car gets better city gas mileage than just about ANY new car.
And with it being 18 years old with 220k miles on it?
It drives like new!
The paint is fading but we're going to have a paint job done.
For a completely STOCK car this is the best buy out there!
