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.
Interior, body styling, availability of parts for repair, gas mileage, very fun to drive for a 4 cylinder.
Good handling on highway and in snow.
Fix the cupholders because they're awful.
Otherwise, perfection in motion.
