2012 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This has been the gold standard in econ cars for years. I'm a bit disappointed at the gas mileage. Even with the "econ" button, t's no better than my 12 year old Sentra. The button takes torque away to such an extent that you need to be on flat land in order for the driving to be consistent. Climate control is pretty good but it's nearly impossible to keep the windows clear of fog. Premium audio is almost useless. The auto traction and brakes are decent, if you are hoping to have the car drive for you. However, if you like to control everything it's not so favorable.

Favorite Features

Performs well if you don't mind lower gas mileage. The car corners really well.

Suggested Improvements

It's pretty hard to see out the rear side and rear windows. The rear view mirror shows you far too little to actually be useful. Headroom leaves something to be desired The seat, while comfortable in the short run, has given me weird nerve issues by having pressure on the outside of my upper leg.
