This is a solid vehicle. We use our Civic mostly in light city driving with infrequent short highway driving. First tank of gas provided over 31 mpg with 90 percent city driving. This Civic is an outstanding city car for commuting to work or for shopping trips. We did not purchase ours to make trips in the hundreds of miles as comfort may be compromised as with any smaller vehicle. Our drive out price was 18,600 and that included about $500 for all the nice extra features that come with the LX-S, the dreaded $498 doc fee for admin work and a 7% sales tax that added about $1200. The dealer was easy to deal with as we went in with a general drive out price in mind.
The LX-S adds excellent features to include Alloy wheels, attractive small spoiler, leather wheel, improved seats etc. for a small price. Trunk is more than adequate. Easy to drive. An attractive, inexpensive, well-made car with great resale value.
Not easy to see lower front section of hood when parking. Would like to see Honda and other car makers find a way to place the spare tire right side up in trunk for easy checking of tire pressure without difficult removal of tire. No major suggestions with this car.
