This is my 3rd civic, and will be my last Honda. It appears that Honda has (sadly) taken the road to greed by offering an inferior product for profit. At 500 miles the traction control unit failed, then at 13,000 miles the A/C unit wouldn't work, followed by an emission control failure at 15,000 miles. The car is extremely noisy and uncomfortable to drive. The stereo is one on the worst I've ever heard. I really can't believe this car is a Honda product.
It's only saving grace is the good gas mileage...and that's about it!
Offer a halfway decent stereo, reduce the road noise, make more comfortable seats, offer an outside air temperature display (really, you couldn't offer this on all models? My motorcycle even has one). Bring back the reliability I've come to know in the Honda product.
