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


So I have had my Civic for one week. Traded a 2005 Altima SL LOADED. I have a base LX automatic. I bought this solely for the gas mileage and in that respect I am getting much more than I expected. This is not a luxury car so don't buy it if that is what you are looking for. The drive is nice and tight, shifting is smooth, braking is decent. It is stylish and solid. I have about 250 miles on it and I have averaged about 36 mpg with 80% hwy and 20% city driving. This is my first Honda and so far I am extremely impressed. I was able to buy it for a touch less than invoice which made it very reasonably priced. I highly recommend this car if you are looking to save gas money.

Best Features

Dash setup is awesome and impressive. I absolutely love the USB port for my IPod and the IPod menu display on the dash. Steering wheel mounted controls are also easy to use. Nicely optioned at the LX price point.

Worst Features

I miss my outside temperature gauge and the auto headlights.
