2012 Honda Civic EX-L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is our 4th Honda (previously had an Accord, CR-V, and Pilot). We bought this EX-L to use mainly as a commuter car for me. We've had it about 2 months now, and I've already got just over 3K miles on it. Gas mileage has been great, it's comfortable, and wind noise is minimal. I know it's considered a "compact" car, but it feels anything but compact. In fact, it feels about the same size as our '90 Accord! Overall, we're very pleased with our purchase.


Best Features

Gas mileage, reliability, Honda reputation.


Worst Features

Would love to see automatic climate control and power seats (at least driver's side) in the EX-L, but that's a minor quibble.

Review

I purchased this car new because it felt like a qaulity product from Honda. The MPG is Fantastic. The instant display bar with MPG makes driving the car a fun "game" to maximize your mileage per gallon. Driving in mostly stop and go traffic I am averaging over 33 miles per gallon! It takes a very light foot but the instant display gives you the feed back to learn to drive with a very light foot on the gas peddle. Well done Honda!


Best Features

MPG instant feed back display is great. The leather seats are very comfortable, The real spare tire in the trunk instead of "call somebody" that the other car company said to do because their cars did not come with a spare Tire! The sterio sounds great. I also realy am enjoying the blue tooth built in for my cell phone. For a small car the ride is good and the car handles very well...


Worst Features

I would have like two power outlets in the front instead of one I have to plug my gps in the center consule...

2012 Honda Civic EX-L 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

So far so good. I'm glad I bought this Civic EX-L at an excellent deal over $1k below Edmund's. It is used as an additional car for the wife's shopping, school, church and around town errands. Our Montero 20th Anniv is good for outdoors and long drives but at 14/18mpg :-( Love our Honda.. It's been getting at least 35-38mpg. Too bad the reviews did not get them any fair shot.


Best Features

Leather interior is nice for the price. Econ Mode is excellent.


Worst Features

EX-L should have back-up camera and rearview mirror plus sensors as well as driver seat memory standard or an option. Only the Euro and Asian versions have the backup assist.

Review

The beautiful Civic Honda is an excellent all around car. The seats are a little uncomfortable, but other than that it is excellent quality. The edge of the seats seem firm and cause discomfort on a long journey. But the handling is excellent.


Worst Features

The seats could be mondified with not such a deep dip. A little more horse power would be nice too.
