first off, we have been driving Honda/Acura products since 1984.
The wife has had 06 and an 09 Accord EX-L and was ready for something new. Her car is usually driven on our trips, long and short, and the Accords were great but with the 2 of us in it most of the time, the Civic seemed like the logical choice when looking for a new car.
It is perfect for what we drive it for and the gas savings is incredible so far, compared to the Accords.
its just a fun car to drive and comfortable for what it is. I have enjoyed the new gadgets to show the gas mileage and it does keep me from driving it faster.
I found the interior fit and finish to be great as well as the outside too.
If I were to change anything it would be the dash. I see where the Acura version has gotten rid of the 2 tier dash and hope the newest version of the Civic is more like it.
