I purchased this car almost 4 years ago, after heavily researching it. It had 120k miles on it when I got it, now it has 208k. It consistently gets 34mpg city/hwy, and 36 all hwy. Get the 5 spd manual, I hear the auto is gutless. The front seat is ok, but for a 6'3" tall man, i'm basically in the back seat. The engine purrs and has been 100% trouble free. Kinda loud at 75mph, this is basically a tin can on wheels. It's a great commuter car but as far as road trips forget it. I just took a 3k mile road trip and my wife and I were very uncomfortable. I'd buy another one in a second for commuting. Honda cars are the best for reliability and fuel mileage.
Fuel mileage(400+ miles) on a full tank. Maintenance is fairly low, this thing just keeps running and running.
Rear end of the car is a little bouncy. I wish there was a 6th gear so the engine wouldn't pull 4,000RPM's at 80mph. Feels like the engine racing on the freeway above 65mph.
I bought this car used with 60,000 miles. I was a student and couldn't afford a car that needed a lot of repairs - - this car has exceeded my expectations. Nothing has gone wrong with it and it still gets as good as mileage as when I first bought it (35 mpg). I keep waiting for the clutch to get old but it hasn't. I've replaced timing belt, tires, and brake pads. It's a beautiful car, MUCH prettier than Prius. The original paint job is really well done. Attractive dash. I've driven up & down hilly San Francisco, around town, and across the country. I only wish there were more models of Honda with such an attractive body.

It's a little bumpy and noisy when driven over 70 mph. I don't like driving it in high winds.
This vehicle has been great! Other than regular maintenance I have just had the struts replaced. I bought this car new in 2000 and Its still running strong it has over 130000 miles now. I get great gas mileage and the car has adequate power. The steering and brake pedal are too soft. The fuel Economy and the sunroof are nice. I wish the sound system was better, even on the top of the line ex the stereo only has 4 speakers. I highly recommend this vehicle!
Sunroof, great gas mileage, exterior Design.
Softer seats, tighter steering and better sounding stereo. A V-6 option would be nice.
I got my vic brand new and the only problem that I had was the driver seat rocking back and forward, the dealer replaced the part and until now no problems was so ever. I do keep all my maintenance current,,,, great car!
gas mileage, friendly controls, moonroof, vtec! seats,
better suspension like the previous civic. less road noise
