2011 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
The first problem I had with this new car is a needed replacement of a front wheel bearing with only 15K miles. It also needed a realign. Now I know why CR didn't recommend the Civic for this model year.
Wheel bearings rust when cars sit for an extended period of time. This is more common now than ever, because wheel bearings aren't as well made (on any car). CR didn't recommend the Civic for this model year because it doesn't report on vehicles the year they come out. This car is the culmination of five years of tweaking, so I expect it will be otherwise a very reliable vehicle for you.
