This is my second Honda Civic, they're great for the money. The car is overall okay, gas mileage is like a hybrid (well almost). I have been extremely disappointed with the dealer, but I hear a lot of dealers are like that. There's no sunshade at the top of the windshield, very annoying on a sunny day. The car is also difficult to start on an extremely cold morning, I think it should be much easier to start for a new car. The heat is inadequate at the floor so if you live in a cold climate and own this car expect cold feet. Stereo is lame; but again it's an inexpensive car.
Gas mileage, reliability, resale. The interior is very comfortable.
Fix heater so it's HOT and distributes more heat to the floor. Road noise is HORRENDOUS. Dealer repairs have been extremely disappointing.
