I previously owned a tuned 2003 Ford Mustang GT, but got this Civic because I was driving 70 miles round trip to work everyday. The civic gets great mileage, 35-40mpg on the highway. Unfortunately, I've had to have the water pump and ac compressor replaced. But that was done under warranty, and other than oil changes, tire rotations and gas, I don't have to spend any money on her. The only downside is that there are some serious blind spots around the C pillars in the back that make it extremely difficult at times to change lanes. I love the two tiered instrument cluster and the Ipod jack. I wish she had more power, but I love the great mileage.
Two-tiered instrument cluster, ipod jack, great mileage, fun to drive.
Smaller C pillars to reduce blindspots. Better stock sound system. A little more power.
