Bought the civic last summer and its been pretty good so far.
She had a body noise that I was told was a problem with the 2010 civics but the dealer took care of it.
It still shows up when the road is especially bumpy but its ok.
Milage is great and the car sips gas.
Handles great and because I am average height, there's plenty of room for me and friends. It really is fun to drive and I love the reliability.
I also notice that people arent dinging my doors cuz the car is slimmer than my Camry yet has the same room inside as my old car(98 camry).
So far, overall, I would buy another.
Sporty look inside and out, comfortable seats, great excelleration, sips gas. Handles great in the snow.
I actually tried to lose control but the car just wouldn't do it.
I would definitely tell people about the body noise...easily fixed. Rear cup holders would help but the side rear door pockets can serve ok for now.
