I needed better gas mileage yet I wanted something fun to drive and with good sporty looks. The Civic is it! The car is tight, quick enough to be safe and drives great. I get 30+ mpg around town with the air running all the time and I don't baby it. The interior room is more than ample with good comfort in the rear. I find the driver seating comfortable. The car is loaded with engineering you can't see and deserves more credit for that. The Honda engineers put a lot of thought and design into the drivetrain which is most important. I liken this car to my first Accord that I purchased in 1973. This is that car reborn in every way for fun, drive and economy. I plan on 200k miles.
Driveability, gauges look neat; Radio and CD work fine and sound good; good road feel and nimble cornering. Great brakes. Lots of storage; AC works well in the desert. Fun to drive!
Needs a sunglass holder and an improved trunk mat. I miss a temp gauge and climate control. Better seat adjustments would help too.
