Fun to drive, noisy, and unsure of quality
By hiker8 on
2011 Honda Civic EX-L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Had the left rear wheel bearing replaced at 10K miles. Do a quick search and you will see wheel bearings on this generation of civic are an issue, and Honda didn't correct the problem even on the last model year.
The car seems to be well built otherwise, only a small rattle by the tweeter near the front left of the windshield.
An update to this post. We have not had any issues since the wheel bearing and I continue to enjoy driving the car when I do (wife's car). We took a heavily loaded down trip recently and the car was stable and still comfortable on the road with plenty of power to spare. Steering and driving position are superb, although the leather seats are a little hard. Overall happy with this purchase 1 year later... also getting 36-38 mpg on highway trips and 33-34 mixed driving.
