Great purpose built car!

2007 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe w/Navigation System (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
I am completely enamored with my Honda. This is coming from a guy who had a jeep cherokee 4x4 as his previous vehicle. This car served me as well in San Diego as it did in the cold weather in Boston. Snow tires and a 5 speed manual made this car a joy to drive in the snow. The car started every morning regardless of how cold it was. Owners who complain about this car didn't understand what they were buying. The car is 20 grand brand new-one shouldn't expect Porsche-like build quality and materials for that price. Another unjustified complaint people have is the 'surprisingly low' mpg. This is what happens when sound deadening, airbags, and computers get added to a car.
good stereo (for the level of car). aux in. styling is top notch. big trunk. revvy motor. quite and comfortable for economy car. Small service bill.
needs more torque. car needs to be designed to be less expensive to repair for accident damage (car was almost totaled from being rear ended).
