Almost immediately upon delivery, I noticed I would get shocked when I would put the key in the door or touch the car. It was serviced under warranty twice; the shocks continued for the duration of my four year lease. I experienced no mechanical problems. But I did have to replace the original tires at 17,200 miles for wear. This was unexpected and costly! I drive less than 10,000 miles annually. My Civic was a comfortable drive even on long trips. It was roomy and had plenty of cargo space. It could have done better on gas in city driving. My only criticism, other than the tires, was that body was easily dented by shopping carts and I cracked the rear bumper on an snow bank.
roominess, dash board display colors, Galapagos green color.
Reinforcement of bumper and body to prevent dents and minimal impact cracks on bumper. Better tires for longer wear- -see text comment. More efficient I-4 engine--gas mileage and zip to merge with highway traffic.
