Like other reviewers, I passed up a civic for this car. I thought it would be a good choice. I'm not pleased with the gas mileage (22 mpg in the city, and 30 mpg on the highway). My heat also works only on the highest setting so I'm either really cold or really hot. I've also noticed that this car handles really poorly in the wind--I was blown into oncoming traffic once!! And who can forget the paint job--the top coat is peeling in several locations.
It's a comfy car, I like the keyless entry, and trunk size.
