I find the Honda Civic EX to be well-
made, with only minor electrical
problems so far--a burned-out electric
window switch. The pickup is fairly
decent, although the handling isn't
awfully forgiving of emergency
maneuvers. Overall a fun drive.
Interior layout is intuitive and
everything is in reach, as opposed to
unnecessarily complex or confusing Ford
and Mercury controls.
More pickup, better grip in a turn, and
a little styling wickedness ala the
Toyota Celica GT.
