2016 Honda Civic: 5,000 Miles and Counting
by Dan Edmunds, Director of Vehicle Testing on June 23, 2016
I really like our 2016 Honda Civic. And I'm fairly certain that most of the other editors in the office have a similar opinion.
In light of this, it seems to me that it has taken longer for the Civic to reach 5,000 miles than it should have. June 11th represents four months and one week of ownership for us. That's just over a third of its scheduled time and yet we're only now at the one-quarter mark in terms of mileage.
We've got some work to do, and it wouldn't hurt for it to go on a road trip or three. After all, most of its early miles have been amassed close to home. The exception was May, a 1,453-mile month that saw a nice mix of city and highway that actually matched its 35-mpg EPA combined rating.
Our Civic needs more of that. It deserves it.
