I bought my Civic from a Honda dealership as a certified used car, with around 48k. Now with 90k, I am still surprised at its complete reliability and lack of problems. My civic was hit in a parking lot, and I hit a deer last summer, and not only did it hold up well but it has returned to its original form. Regular oil changes and a set of tires, and this car is easily my best investment. I have the constant itch for a sports car, but know that giving up my civic is the wrong idea.
Space, Reliability. Has room for a great sound system, very little construction needed to modify speaker sizes, etc. I am very pleased with the gas mileage in this car, as I drove a Jeep Cherokee before. This is the first car in which I need a gas light to remind me to fill up.
