We purchased this car from the original owner in 2006 with about 100k miles. We now have about 160k miles and this Civic has been super reliable.
Simple maintenance only (oil, brakes, timing belt). A couple minor, weird issues: had to replace both automatic window regulators, throttle and acceleration are becoming slower.
Overall, I'd highly recommend this car. Plus I've achieved over 40 MPG on numerous flat trips.
