To be honest, I purchased this car from a private party with 15,000 miles on it. It was 3 years old at the time; and it had a salvage title... At first, I was concerned, but I have had no problems with this car. I am very pleased with my purchase. I paid $7,500. I go to the dealer to get my oil changed regularly, but besides that and brakes, that is all it has needed. I absolutely LOVE it.

Better real world gas mileage than the the
other four seat hybrid competitors: 37 in the
city and 44 on the Highway. I get closer to
40/45 because I overinflate the tires slightly
and I'm easy on the throttle. With Honda's
reliability, its like driving for free! Great car
in these $2-3 per gallon times.

CVT transmission developed serious
problems at 60,000 miles and cost $2500
to fix, at the only shop or dealer
which was willing to touch it. Now, at
65000 miles, it is going out again.
Very disappointing for a car bought
because one of its main features was
supposed to be reliablity.

My Civic was the second car I ever
bought, and it is really fun to drive,
It isn't the fastest car out there, but
it sure is not the slowest. I really
enjoy my Civic, and am extremely glad
that I bought it!

There are cars that get better fuel economy

and there are more powerful cars, but only
the HX delivers 115 HP in 2324 lbs with fuel

I have owned 2 new civic. The first
civic lasted for 221,000 miles in 10
years. My second civic has 160,000
miles on it in 7 years and does not
show any signs of slowing down. They
are and were worth more to me than the
sticker price I paid for them.
Reliability is the best feature of the
civic. They are not the fanciest
vehicle out there but they cover every
base very well for the everyday person
or the traveling type.

A styling element that Honda has used occasionally is to mirror/gel the shape of the headlamp to the tail lamp. This was true in 1996-2000 Civic, 1997-2000 CL, 1990-1993 Accords, 2004 TSX (look from t...
