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.
I like the way it looks. I still get alot of compliments on it. And, there's that fuel economy! I just love it!!!!
I put in a CD player, and I got new rims and wheels.
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.
Gas mileage; nimble, rather quick (115 HP
moving 2325lbs), clean lines, very reliable,
good egonomics. Mileage is very good in
the real world...not just EPA test numbers.
A little more sound-deadoning material.
Noisy compared to friends EX Civic.
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.
Fun to drive
Drop the CVT transmission until they
become more reliable or can be fixed.
Or buy them from a company which knows
how to build them.
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
(but only a handful that seat four people),
and there are more powerful cars, but only
the HX delivers 115 HP in 2324 lbs with fuel
economy over 40 MPG. The best of
efficiency and reliability. A liitle noisy due to
lack of sound deadoning material (which
Fuel economy, light tossable handling and
zippy performance in a very reliable car.
