2009 Honda Civic LX-S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
My chief priority in my purchase this time was fuel economy. I was a little nervous going from my large sedan (Ford 500) to a smaller economy type car. After driving several makes and models, I decided to go with the Civic. I am not disappointed at all. I went with the LX-S because I liked the black interior and some of the extras it came with. The car handles great and the 4 cylinder has surprising power. The fuel economy is better than expected. 4 fill ups and I have been getting 30 + mpg with over 70% being city driving. The interior is very roomy even for my 6'3 frame. The car feels very solid and just a lot better quality then all the competition I looked at. New Honda convert.
Love the dash displays, stylish exterior and the overall handling of the car. Can't be the mpg without spending a lot more for a hybrid
Wish there was a trunk release on the remote and cup holders in the back. I kinda miss my outside temp gauge too but that is minor
