The only problem I've had with my Honda Civic is the cruise control and the air bag sensor light. My cruise control has worked intermittently for the last 2 years, and the air bag sensor has been an issue since before my warranty expired. I just never got it fixed. I have had it checked and their is truly something wrong with the sensor. But I have A LOT of miles on my Honda so overall I would never complain. I don't know very many cars that can stand up to what my car has.
My favorite feature is in the backseat I don't have this big hump in the floor. I believe this is the first year they had a flat floor in the back and I love it. The other thing is mileage and dependability. I can always count on my Honda.
There is definitely something up with my cruise control and I know cars the are 25 years old but their cruise control still works so I don't think my should have been going out. Just my 2 cents and as for the air bag sensor, I don't know. Partly my fault for not getting it looked at right away.
