Just purchased new Civic LX 2 days ago. Really impressed with the build quality and overall value. Much better than 09 Corolla I traded. Hope to keep the car at least 10-15 years. Only potential issue is a vibration that starts at about 45-50+ mph (feels like a tire out of balance). Noticed it on 125 mile drive home from dealership. I was going to have it checked at the first oil change at the dealer, but now read someone else has had the same problem and a service bulletin has been issued. Other than that (hopefully) minor issue, I'm very pleased with Honda products.
Build quality and fit and finish. Engine is strong and very capable. 5 spd automatic.
Dealers should check their cars on test drives above 50 mph to make sure vibrations don't occur.
