Huge Blind Spot
By Ztrain on
2006 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
This car is a blast to drive. But the elongated sleek space capsule design that won it the Motor Trend car of the year for all models is also one that brings its biggest weak spot. The back part of the support of the roof leaves huge blind spots. It's a blast in the 5 speed. And it's about the easiest car ever to drive. You won't have a problem teaching someone how to drive a stick with the very forgiving clutch and easy gear pattern. Good acceleration as well.
The digital LED speedometer, odometer, gas gauge are pretty cool to go with the two tier dash. Trekkies and techies will like the high tech and interesting dash as well as overall look. The sunroof is also way cool with the electric open/close.
It's pretty nerve-wracking to merge onto a busy interstate with how bad the visibility is for the blind spot. A car could easily hide in the space that is concealed. Prefer openness of the Accord in this regard. The side panels are very easy to scratch/scuff up and the new look quickly fades.
