Vehicle2012 Honda Civic HF 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
ReviewThe exterior of this vehicle is very nice, a drastic improvement over the last model. The interior leaves something to be wanted. It really doesn't do anything for me. The ride is nice, and the fuel efficiency is great for a gas engine. I averaged around 42 mpg on the interstate. The greatest grip I have is the "eco-boost" of the HF model, and the transmission of all. I think some work needs to be done in both areas. The automatic transmission acts more like a manual due to poor downshifting, and make sure to be a complete stop before changing into Drive, even if you are rolling forward. Overall, its a Honda, so I expect to have it well past 300K miles.
Best FeaturesFuel Efficiency, Exterior Looks, Reliability of Honda (I own two now.)
Worst FeaturesInterior design (I didn't purchase for the interior though) Transmission with the eco-boost and without it. (Eco-boost option only available on the HF model) The transmission is a bit jerky when downshifting (automatic).
