Although I do believe that the Civic is reliable and gets good gas mileage, I have been disappointed with several aspects of the car. I had to replace my tires within the first year, the inside rear of the car started to squeak after 6 months, the condensor needs replaced ($1200 job), plastic instrument panal randomly cracked(Honda wouldn't fix even though under warrenty), the engine is loud when idoling, stiff ride, and now the rear back tire is grinding and its not the brakes. So, I wake up everday holding my breath, hoping that nothing major happens!
Stronger backing of the product. They don't seem to stand behind their vehicle. This is especially evident with the 30,000 mile warranty as opposed to the competition's 100,000 mile warrenty!!!! You get a good engine surrounded by junk.
