I've been driving my civic for 7 months now. I love it! The engine has a lot of pickup and speed. I deal with heavy stop/go traffic on my daily commute and I am impressed with how responsive the brakes are. Gas mileage-excellent! I drive about 150 mi a week and fill up about every other week or so. As others have said, in the driver's seat, the hood slopes so you cannot see it..Even still, I've never had an issue parallel parking after the first few weeks of driving it. Only issue I've had is cold starts. The engine hesitates and will take a couple of tries...However, I learned starting the engine in position 2 seems to do the trick so no further issues. I'm very happy with my purchase!
Excellent gas mileage, USB attachment for my ipod, steering wheel radio controls, excellent braking system, sleek exterior, power sunroof
Seats are a little uncomfortable in long trips, fix engine hesitation on cold start
