Great Mileage, but feels cheap
By ms568 on


2013 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Bought the manual because I did not like how bad shifting felt in automatic.

mileage is insanely good - averaging about 37 combined with 75% highway and 25% around town (I drive pretty conservatively, highway is cruise control with econ button on).
Safety - was rear ended, not injured, car held up fine.
Fairly quiet and comfortable - good space for a smaller car.

It was relatively cheap and it feels cheap.
I had a VW golf before this and it felt like a tank in comparison (mileage sucked).
The paint already has a chip after one month.
And there is a sloshing sound that comes from the gas tank that is really noticeable if you have the radio off.

Best Features

Transmission, Fuel efficiency, Blue tooth and Pandora integration.

Worst Features

Better paint job, upgrade interior materials. Love the manual transmission, but wouldn't buy again. I had a 99 civic ex that I loved and traded in with over 150k miles - this really pales by comparison. Won't keep more than a year or two.
