2010 Civic LXS 5 speed manual
By jodar96 on


2010 Honda Civic LX-S 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Bought it new on Feb 2010 for $16K ( MSRP $18,900)
I always felt Civic was the most reliable, refined, fuel efficient, fun to drive small car around. Its gas mileage I believed was the closest to a hybrid w/o the cost or engine complexity.

I was right on in every aspect. After over two years and 18K miles, it has never been back to the dealer for any repair. Its gas mileage is 36mpg on hwy doing 70-75.
and I have got 40mpg on three occasions when I keep the speed at 65mph.

Its 5 speed manual is amazingly precise and solid.
The car is agile, nimble, and very fun to drive.
The exterior shape eventhough goeas back to 2006,
is still pleasant to look at.

Best Features

Exterior design, handling, gear shift feel, gas mileage, reliability, exceptional resale value. Solid and rattle free interior.

Worst Features

Honda often is clueless to little features that competitors offer in the same trim levels. The stereo does not have USB input for I-Pod or there is no outside temp display. You think after building the car since 2006, in 2009 refresher look, they would have added these. These feutures are only STD in EX trim. Even 2012MY still lacks outside temp display. Road noise could use improvement. Other cars in its class are quieter.
