This is my 3rd Honda preceded by an '06 Accord and '07 Ridgeline. The Civic is impressive for an economy car and is inexpensive enough that I don't feel guilty about it being my daily driver. When I feel to drive a big, quiet, comfortable vehicle with a V8 I'll just take my '09 Silverado out for a spin.
Two-tier instrument cluster with digital speedometer; smooth, quiet engine (for a 4-cylinder).
VSA SHOULD BE STANDARD! Radio doesn't sound all that great - even for a base- level factory unit. Driver's A-pillar and where the radio trim and dash meet don't fit right - not very Honda-like.
