So, a change in outlook has taken me
from a 15 mpg Durango to the 51 mpg
Civic. I just love this little car so
far. My new job is about 60 miles
away, and I'll be commuting for a
couple of months. This will be a great
commuter. If I drive it on the freeway
at 75 mph, I seem to get about 45 mpg.
At a more leisurely pace of 65 and
under, it'll pull down an honest (at
least according to the digital readout)
The fit and finish are great. The auto
stop feature (which turns of the engine
at stops and starts automatically when
you put it into gear) is a great
conversation starter. My favorite
feature has to be the great gas mileage.
Cup holders for the rear seat
passengers, slightly bigger mirrors,
more seat adjustment with a bit wider
back bolsters. A CD player that
doesn't SKIP when you hit a minor bump.
Door ajar light, instead of just the
beeper. Shifter handle more solid to
the stick. (Picky, ain't I?)
