I bought a 2010 Honda Civic Sedan Auto LX-S in Atomic Blue on 4/24/10. It is a great car for the money. It is no race car, but has decent acceleration. Honda mainly had fuel economy in mind when designing this car. First tank averaged 32 MPG with combined city/highway driving. Handling is good even at higher speeds. Not much road noise noticed as mentioned in other reviews. The only thing I added after purchase was custom tint and front/rear splash guards. You can remedy all the suggested improvements listed below by going up to an EX, but I thought the rims were ugly and buying the LX-S saved me a few bucks. Incentives are good for Hondas right now as it is more of a buyers market.
Auxiliary jack for iPod, 1.8L i-VTEC engine, black sport interior, leather steering wheel, auto up/down driver's window, keyless entry remote and key in one unit, sliding armrest, and dual cup holder can hold large beverages/odd sizes.
Add trunk release to key remote, only has one 12 V power outlet, needs 4 wheel disc brakes to be standard on all models, no 60/40 rear seat and can only be released from inside the trunk, no light in glove box, factory speakers are low grade.
