Things I didn't think about FIRST
By schoolsh33 on


2012 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I've had 96 Civic & 98Accord. Bought 2012 Civic 4 door stick shift in May 2011. I've always loved stick for the pickup & gas mileage. Big problems with this car. 1) NO pickup at all. It's embarrassing at a light with even slight incline & people are on your butt & go around u because it takes forever to get up to speed. If AC is on forget it, u have to turn it off until u get to speed. 2) Visibility sucks. There is a thick separator where side mirrors are making window 2 sections creating major blind spots 3) My kids can't have back window down, it causes this vibrating wind sound that hurts your ears.
So, things I never thought about have made me unhappy with this car & I'm trading it in

I have an civic 08 manual. Yeah no power at all. AC is a drain. Glad I don't live where there is a lot of steep hills or even mountains for that matter. Paint is peeling bad. Airbag light comes on. Hope your model year isn't like the 08. I will be considering maybe something that has a turbo engine in the near future. Preferably a manual still though.
