Best Economy Car Ever!

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


I was getting pretty sick of the up and downs in the gas prices and really got concerned when gas approached $4 a gallon. I decided that my 22 MPG Santa Fe had to go. I shopped around and fell in love with the 2012 Civic. I gave up the power of a V6 for the fuel economy of a 4 cylinder and I don't regret it. I cruised from Cleveland to Columbus at got 41 MPG. Take that Big Oil! I don't need my wallet sucked dry every time I fill up.

The Focus was interesting but the cockpit was cramped. I did not like that the auto transmission chattered on my initial test drive. The Hyundai Elantra styling was too extreme and the KIA Forte looked cheap on the inside.

Best Features

I love the leather interior and the MID screen readouts. I also love the roominess of the interior and the sleek exterior.

Worst Features

Automatic Climate control. A tad more engine torque and overall power.
