2006 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
I purchased my Honda to cut my fuel costs. I had driven pickups for 20 years but the gas savings practically made the car payment. Being 6'1 I was impressed with the way I felt after my regular four hour drive. The car never had any problems except for a coupe of minor recalls. The downside of this car is its weight. You have to really hold on in heavy rain or snow. There have been numerous occasions when the snow buildup in the wheel wells caused some massive front end vibration.If you live in a warm climate this is the best car to get for fuel economy and comfort. If you are a DYI person you will more than likely have to get your trans fluid from the Honda dealer.
Gas mileage 36-42 during warm weather. Blue dash lighting is different. Interior nicely designed. Comfortable for large driver.
A little more room in the wheel well to clear out snow. A few more power ports--one does not cut it in the 21st century.
