This was my first new-car purchase and
first car out of High-school. My
previous car was an '86 Accord that got
me hooked on the Honda nameplate. This
car is very well-built. I have 50k+
miles so far and I have not had even
the slightest problem. It gets awesome
gas milage as well. My only complaint
is that the insurance is insanely high
on this car. Even more so if your a
single male under 25 like me.
Performance is not the greatest,
although not the worst either. (But
then again, what do you expect from an
economy car?) I would highly recomend
the 5-speed manual for a car like this.
Fuel economy, build-quality,
reliability, good looking hatch-back.
Make harder to steal. Civics can be
stolen with nothing more than a common
screwdriver. High-theft is one of the
reasons why insurance is so high. Also,
the interior is a dull mono-toneous
dark grey color. A two-tone light and
dark grey would look much better.
