2013 Honda Civic EX-L PZEV 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


After 3 years I can update my review. In addition to the 2015 comments, I reaffirm the compactness of the car. The interior is so tight that regular maps cannot fit into the door map compartments. Quality is great. The ride is still too stiff for long distance. Took that on a 2-day drive to the Atlantic Ocean. It struggled on the WV turnpike. It handled winter driving reasonably well.
This sedan has enough hi-tech features to wow.
Interior is comfortable but feels confined (I replaced a 2008 Camry hybrid) but reasonably comfortable for medium distance trips. I only have the car for two weeks and filled the tanks twice. In town I was averaging 23-24 mpg. I took a 10-hour round trip mostly at 55-60 mph
I was getting close to 39-40 mpg.
On acceleration the car has a tendency to be jerky if the gas pedal is released. After driving the round trip for close to 9 hrs my back started to get stiff.
A lower back support may be the next item I should try.
The trunk is small but acceptable; it could accommodate 2 sets of golf clubs with room for overnight luggage.
