I bought the Honda Civic LX last June and have put on this car about 15,000 miles. I'm not sure why this car initially got so many bad reviews. From what I can tell and have experienced these people reviewed the wrong car or are on drugs. Here are the facts after owning this car for almost 1 year.
It averages about 39.8 mpg for my 30 mile commute to and from work everyday, is a blast to drive and I have had no mechanical or electrical problems at all.
If you are looking for a great car, low maintenance, high mpg then look no further.
I walked out of the dealership paying $18,000 for this car and have since then payed it off. I will keep this car as long as possible.
Thank you Honda!
