i just bought a used civic cx hatch i was amazed how fast it went on the highway! i was going 140 km and didn't even notice, it just flies! and it is so EASY to shift gears in a civic?! I love it! and it has good gas mileage! and they are a great size for finding parking and the hatch has more space than i thought. i like too that i is nice and basic, doesn't have unnecessary gadgets. Excellent car!
Gas mileage, size, fun to drive, good factory radio/speakers, love the body design, good heater
Seat gets uncomfortable (lower lumbar sticks out way to much) after long periods of driving, outside dents too easily, the WIND NOISE is horrible when driving at high speeds...so much wind noise? should make it more sound proof, doesn't excel great, but it's a civic so lets be fair
This car is classic Honda: wonderful
fuel economy and reliability, agile in
driving (I'm a stick-shift fanatic so I
chose the 5-speed), virtually
worry-free, and overall nice looking.
Drawbacks: being a small hatchback,
naturally, the back seat leaves
something to be desired-- barely enough
room for kids but I imagine people who
buy this car probably don't have kids to
begin with. Bottom line: if you like
small, zippy, Euro/Japanese cars, this
is definitely the one for you. Am a
lifelong Honda fan.
Good tranny (shifting a breeze), fuel
econ, 82000 miles with only scheduled
maintenance. (Even the brakes are still
at 50 % at 82k! Of course, I'm
primarily a highway driver.)
None for this class of car. Honda does
it right again and again.
in response to bullit's review on top of the page: what is NOT an import in canada?
civic is without any question one of the most reliable cars out there.
its my 3ed.
i remember my other ones: not a single mechanical problem after 70,000. just oil, tires, and filters were replaced.
