I think if you are looking at a compact car that gets great gas mileage, you have to check out the Civic. It is reliable, fun, and nice for the price. I think you will be surprised with what you get for what you pay. The LX has all the stuff you need. A/C, CC, PW, PD, CD, keyless entry.
Cruise Control, and keyless entry. 5 speed stick. This is the only reason the car doesnt feel as slow as it is.
Engine feels a little weak. But with a 5 speed, you can make up for alot of it. Maybe make them all with the 127 HP engine? Also rear cup holders would be nice. This is how good the car is. I have to start finding fault with cup holders!!
