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