I bought my civic used with 73,000 miles. I drive 37,000 miles a year as a courier and am amazed by the low maintenance 220,000 miles later I am just now replacing the clutch and struts. This is the most serious maintenance I've had yet, besides the normal wear and tear of brakes. I am averaging still an astonishing 40 miles to the gallon.
Stereo and more cup holders in the back, currently only has one and with kids not easy.
