update 9000 miles

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


Have 8 k on it now with the manual and till now it is ok ,but not more than that.If you want the "old" feeling of driving fun you better stay with a 8th generation civic..........
It's a commuter from a to b and relaible.
Got some engine noise after 2000 miles,must come from the valves,a ticking noise,not used to it,my 2009 lx had 30k on it and still sounded new.
See how this works out in awhile,will ask about it with the first service interval.Mpg is still great without the econ button 45 mpg......
Never use the econ button anymore,spoils the power and not that much different in mpg...

Best Features

like the info screen,no interior noise from loose panels or what so ever.Lesser road noise is a plus.better seats as the last civic.

Worst Features

straight line on highway is worse,have to adjust all the time to stay in your lane,maybe debit are the 15" wheels with LRR tires.......will try the wheels of the mazda 5"s 17" if improved stabillity. Engine noise,not used to from a Honda motor,maybe because it's lesser noisy in the cabin?
