2013 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Just bought a 2013 Civic coupe with automatic transmission for my wife last week. On a lark, I wanted to see how much mileage I could squeeze out of this car using the lightest foot possible. I needed to drive to the airport - a nearly 50 mile round trip. On the trip there, I drove with no AC at speeds between 60 and 70. The on board mileage computer registered 53 mpg! There is a minor downhill bias since I live a few hundred feet above sea level and the airport is near sea level.

On the trip back, I decided to use the AC. When I arrived home, the MPG computer for the total trip read 43 MPG. That's close to a hybrid's MPG! I am delighted with this car!

Worst Features

Annoyed by the headrests. They lean forward, forcing your head and neck into an uncomfortable angle. Why can't manufacturers install a tilt feature in the headrests, allowing owners to adjust the angle backwards and save their necks?
