2010 Honda Civic Lx-s Sedan

2010 Honda Civic LX-S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Handles like a go kart, in a good way, steering is nice and tight, not too tight. Suspension is firm around corners but absorbs the bumps. Gas mileage so far is 35 mpg with an automatic 50% highway 50% around town. Stereo is decent, not cheap, but nothing high-end. The lx-s comes with a black interior for anyone who hates the all gray look. Also comes with a small deck lid spoiler, rims, leather steering wheel and sportier seats. Engine feels like its going to run forever. Can't notice the transmission shifting except when going from reverse to drive. Back seat room is amazing. My 6ft 4in dad has leg room to move around and enough head room to feel comfortable. The flat floor helps alot too.
Speedometer, seems different/funky at first but makes sense, easier to see your speed without moving your hands all the time. Acceleration is great around town, you dont have to press down too far for it to get up and go. Has enough power to pass on the highway or country roads. Overall look, some angles of the sedan can look misleading for the 2009-2011 models, but in person its a great looking car. All black interior is rare, only avail on the lx-s and si's, love all of the interior. Alot of cubby holes/storage spots. interior lights light up the entire cabin. Haven't found something I dot like about the car yet.
The one complaint about the car I see alot is road noise. If you're soming from a luxury car or a cadillac etc...it will be louder than what you are used to. If you are coming from your average compact.mid size/ or full size car it will be about the same level of road noise, unless your car specializes in interior quietness. I think the one thing that can improve this is different tire. Not sure if they are factory stock but the Continental brand tires pick up the little rivets and slits in the road ways, has nothing to do with the suspension in my opinion, so with a different set of good name tires I dont see a road noise issue, I think all the pro reviewers are getting use to luxury cars.
