2006 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


My wife and I are sensitive to the environment and while the price of gas does not bother us too much (!), we are concerned about future shortages Can't make a case for hybrids. I miss my old English sports cars, so I look for nimble handling. The Civic is terrific- excellent gas mileage, unexpected good performance in the speed ranges we use most often, a full compliment of safety features standard, and a roomy comfortable interior. For those who need the best cornering ability in a small car- look at the Maxda 3. For balanced performance and value- this Civic is superb.

Best Features

1. Unbelievably smooth engine: total silence at idle 2. Brisk accelleration 3. Tilt and telescope wheel 4. Competent cornering 5. Tight structure 6. Six airbags

Worst Features

1. 160 watt stereo is wimpy and thin sounding 2. Tilt feature for driver's seat 3. Shifter is a bit notchy 4. Still adjusting to video game dashboard (though it works well) 5. This is America- cup holders in back seat please!
