I replaced my 2001 Accord with the 2006 Civic looking for better MPG and handling; I got what I was looking for! It was a strange looking car at the time but since then more and more cars have the bullet shaped frame.
Fantastic mileage with highway driving. I get 40 to 42 MPG running between 65-70 MPH! Handling is superb, it can take a corner with the best cars around. Highway passing acceleration on par with my old V6 Accord.
Car speakers are fair at best. Stock tires give a poor grip on snow.
