42.5 mpg on first commute!
By tnmansfield on


2012 Honda Civic EX-L 4dr Sedan w/Nav (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


I just traded my Infiniti G35 sedan which was a great car.
Now that my commute is 112 miles each day, I needed a more economical car.
The 2012 Civic EX-L has a luxury feel to it, a great ride, plenty of back seat room, and the seats are comfortable.
I got a whopping 42.5 mpg according to the trip computer on my way in.
I have read some negative press reviews but don't see the problem with the new conservative look.
The interior is quiet, the ride is smooth, and the dash layout is really interesting.
I like the new information screen.

Best Features

MPG, ride, seat comfort, steering feel, clean design lines inside and out, back seat room, stereo works well and sound is clear with decent bass. Navigation system, bluetooth, and info screen on upper dash are useful features.

Worst Features

This car needs a power driver's seat and homelink. A cubby for loose change would be nice.
