Have now driven 30.000 miles with it and it still drives as new.Also got a average of 41 mpg and sometimes 45 mpg,not bad for a gas car!!
Just get 43 psi in your tires and i
added some body panels under the car,helps to.
The only thing i don't like about this car is the automatic transmission,shifts to much when i don't want it to,see they solved it on the new model,with a stronger torq converter.It's something i can live with,not a reason to sell it with these gas prices!
Like the dash layout,sticks to the road like glue.
road noise, comfort......see they did that with the new model,so they listend to there custumers!
Only a six speed for the dx,lx,ex would be nice to get the same mpg as the automatic.
I've owned my Civic EX for almost 2 years now and I'm still thrilled to drive it every day.
Even though it's only a 4cyl it's quite the zippy little car.
The interior is roomy, features are located within easy reach and the USB port is a nice touch.
It's a Civic, so of course it's great on gas.
It's quality built and very reliable.
If your looking for a car that is practical, safe and has exceptional resale value-this is it!!
I usually keep cars 6-10 years; got rid of this after one year, 7500 miles.
In a little over 12 months, car was in the shop four times-twice for Check IMA light, once for Check Engine light, once because entire driver's side window assembly failed-the whole thing, window, frame, motor for electric window.
Vehicle was dangerously slow, and gas mileage was much worse than advertised(maybe because of the constant computer updates-see Edmunds forum for more info). I've owned some really bad cars over the years-anyone remember the Chevy Monza?-but this was by far the worst.
The entire drive system is junk; dangerously slow, gets much worse mileage than advertised.
Honda needs to start over on this hybrid.
