We were originally going to get an Accord, but decided to take a good look at the 2012 Civic, because it was redesigned and just seemed to offer a lot for the money.
It doesn't disappoint!
One of the complaints often heard about the last gen Civic was road noise.
They have addressed that with the 2012 model.
The overall ride is superb, we thought we would need an Accord before getting this level of quality.
It does not feel like an economy car at all!
Gas mileage is amazing, yet plenty of get up and go!
Instrument panel, overall ride, econ mode.
The only downside right now, as with buying any Japanese make is that the tsunami may affect things like availability, color choice, options or the price you pay.
