I'm 22 years old, I feel that cars these days rely on looks and dynamics. The Honda Civc 2005 LX, 4-door sedan is something where reliabilty is more focused than style of looks. This car is general purpose for familes, single, and pretty much any reason. My CO even has this car. The smooth riding is unlike anything for it's price. If you want to spend more money I would reccomend the Accord 04+. Yet compared to other cars for the price of this car, bar none.
Fuel of course and smooth riding. Everything you need is in this car, if you want a car that has a crazy cd player and something with super speed, this will do decent. But if you want that, this car isn't for you. This Car is for grown-ups and the mature.
Someone mentioned the incline of this car, yes it does that. I thought I might have messed up but it was the car. Driving or anything in life is based on safety. Be safe and aware on driving anyway. Automatic locks when you start driving would help.
