I am extremely disappointed in this car. We had our last Honda (1989 Prelude) for 15 years and it was nearly bulletproof. I had to replace the head gasket after 3 years on this Civic (at about 65,000 miles) and have the head machined – very expensive repair. I’ve spent more money fixing this car since I bought it than I have on an 11- year old Chrysler product with over 215,000 miles on it. The car lacks the power to get out of it's own way. I don't know if I just happened to get a lemon - or if there is a problem with this year model, but it's not an "automatic" choice for me to go buy another Honda.
The styling is good and it is not uncomfortable. Good mileage.
