Honda has come out with a truly outstanding vehice. Changing this year from the boxy hatch back that is so mimiked by everyone else, to a truly phenominal vehicle. Spacious passenger space and plenty of cargo space, all packed in a fast and efficient piece of machinery. The new innovation of the displays, speedo above, others below is a crowning touch to a true masterpiece. The energy is best described when I tell people that I am in third gear doing 50 and then shift to 4th. The vehicle understands when you are in gear to travel, and switches to being in gear to perform, on demand. Good job HONDA Motors. And thank you, Kathy
Favorites would have to be the duo dash displays and the gas efficiency.
Hardly ANY complaints. Back seat is hard to load cargo, but I realize that is characteristic of a two door.

I had read all the good and bad about the new Civic coupe, I ran out and bought a Raylle Red, with Navi, I love this car, MPG is about 35, which is awesome.The lighting and Navi are the best I have found yet, and no problems to date.
I traded a Tundra for this civic purely for better gas mileage. I'm averaging over 31 MPG. I'm pleased with the performance and the overall fit and finish. If you're looking for an interstate cruiser, soft and heavy, this ain't it but if you need a commuter that is responsive, gets good gas mileage and sits 4 quite comfortably, you should give it a look.
5 speed A/T is surprisingly smooth. Space ship digital led display gauges take an hour to get used to, then you love them.
Although the rear seat back folds down as one unit, I'd prefer a split seat back for more versatility.
I bought my 2006 civic recently and I think it's great. It sips gas, it's zippy and I enjoy the small refinements Honda has made since my 2003 30th anniversary edition Civic. I never get tired of watching the engine tach go to zero when I come to a stop, and I have had no problems with any of my previous Civics, so I'm expecting the same with this one. The only thing I'd like to see is the GPS package available in Canada - it's not even an option, which is too bad cause I would have gotten one for sure.
Great mileage reliable quiet decent factory stereo good climate control FUN TO DRIVE!
GPS package for Canada. Heavier interior door handles - the current ones are a little plasticky. Different wheel rim - not a fan of the current ones.
