Stayed with the Civic
By erik25 on


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


No other car in this market comes to the real 40 mpg,but with honda it's easy for me,did it already with an 1992,1998,2001,2009 and now the 2012.
Finally it has some comfort,noise level in the cabine is acceptable.
Have the 5 speed manual and it's the same transmission used for the 2001-2005 civic.
At 65mph it makes 2700 rpm's,in the automatic it's 2200 rpm's,but this time you don't here it and still you get your 40 mpg,also because of the Econ button in the 5 speed.makes 2-3mpg on a tank of gas.Like to shift again because the automatic is not my thing.That shifting up and down the gears when i don't like it to shift!
Everything under control again and i like it!

Best Features

Like the midi system and the shifter ofcourse!

Worst Features

Maybe some likeable sheetmetal,so it doesn't look to much as a Corolla. Maybe the six speed manual of the CR-Z will fit in here,just a suggestion.....
