Very poor headlights at night not bright, and no perifial cannot see where your turning. Cheap Very Bad sideview mirrors it blinds driver at night by vehicals from behind. Cannot read Instruments during the day too far in underneath the dashboard blackout shadow. Do not like idiot lights should have gauges. Back up camera very poor Always dangerous glare,
I bought this car for my daughter. She commutes to school. Great gas mileage. Good all-round car. I like the 5 star safety rating. The only thing we really had a problem with are the seats. The cloth seats stain very easily. I mean if you spill clean water on them, it left a stain. So, I had a leather kit installed. Looks a thousand times better. Scotch guard the seats if you buy a new one.
It's a great car. Occasionally there's a slight hesitation upon accelerating from being stationary, but otherwise fine. Great design, reliability (so far), performance, gas mileage, electronics, entertainment system, handling on corners, etc.
Honda does not make a Hybrid Civic since 2015. Did not come with a spare or jack...bought them on eBay. Like ALL the safety features. No real side pockets on front doors...installed pockets for maps and miscellaneous. Hands free phone seems to work quite well...although we never call while driving. The 'slant' of the windshield makes the sun visor a challenge to flip in a hurry. General handling while driving has a solid feel.
