- I love this car!! good mpg, smooth drive!
- at this point everything is good... no cons
I purchased an 07 civic and I have no problems with it so far.. the navigation is awesome love it. The mpg economy is very good to tell you one time I drove to san diego from los angeles with $25.00 went and came back, the drive was great! I have read alot of bad comments about the accelaration? (ofcourse its an 1.8L not a 3.5L if you want a car to have a faster acceleration than I suggest you get a V6 3.5L ..... and due to his 1.8L engine, car is fast enough)... I have no complaints on this car!!! I just love my civic!!...read morehide

- Slow performance, rattling trap, looks like the Pontiac G6, uncomfortable
- Weak brakes, less features, quality going down, bad MPG
The Honda Civic is not the same as previous model before. It seems that the quality and finish is going bad. I owned this car for the last 8 months and is not satisfied with it. Going to buy the Mitsubishi Lancer, which is far better looking car and price is just right!

- Honda! Peppy, handles well great commuter
- Gas mileage, uncomfortable, rattles
I have had my Honda Civc DX in Feb 2006 and it now has 24K miles on it. I have a dreadful 100 mile round trip commute three to four times a week. I bought this car because of this commute. Prior to this I had a Dodge Ram 4x4 but with gas at its current price, I couldn't afford 12 MPG any more.
Appearance wise, I like the way it looks and I feel it is the best looking car in the price range. The interior is cool and I like the digital speedo but it took some getting used to.
Comfort: I am 6'04 and weigh aboiut 230. I am okay in the car, I have lots of leg room provided there is no one in the back seat. I also have plenty of head room. The seats are not super comfy, especially on long trips! My biggest gripe is the position of the emergency brake. My knee rubs against it constantly. My wife hates my car and is very uncomfortable in it. She does't like the seats at all and I must admit they are hard. She is 5'02" and petite. In an emergency we can squeeze my wife, our two boys in car seats and I in the car but it is very tight. We just kicked out our third kid and we won't all fit.
It does rattle a little bit and I cannot pin down what the rattle is. It is coming from the passenger side near the B pillar. I suspect it is the internal seatbelt mechanism.
The stock stereo is nice and the sound is crisp. The stereo is user friendly. A WORD TO THE WISE. DO NOT BUY THE IPOD ADAPTOR. The Honda Itunes adapter comes with very annoying software which alledgedly tells you the first letter of the next song, playlist, artist or whatever setting you have it on. The voice sounds like C3PO from Star Wars gargling. It is a waste of money ($180 in parts and $200 to install it!)
Performance: This car has a lot of power for a little car. The acceleration is responsive. I really like the cruise control which works well. The car can turn on a dime. The brakes are mediocre.
THERE IS NO WAY THIS CAR UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES WILL GET 40 MPG. Most MPG estimates are exagerated but this one is about 9 MPG off. The best I got was 33 MPH on the freeway after experimenting at 55 MPH. I average 31 MPG. My commute is all freeway and in a straight line. I cruise along at 75 or so MPH. My time is worth the extra gas money!
VALUE: I got it at cost so I think it is a great value. The real value in this car is that I will drive it to death (About 10 years). For me it serves its purpose. It likely won't break down much. I have had zero problems with mine at all. It is cheap transportation to and from work. It was actually cheaper to buy this car than to keep my old truck which was paid for. On the weekend my Honda is a great zip across town or to the store car....read morehide

- Don't know
- too many to mention.
I don't know how this car's advertisment witten 32/40 MPG? Usually if I drive my own style, it only can get 20/29 MPG, where got 32/40MPG? If I drive it like my grandma, the maximum I can get is only near 26/34MPG. I really dissapointed with the MPG Honda advertised. The handling is good, but still not as good as Mazda 3 and Sentra. The i-Vetec engine seems like very slow response, is it normal for i-VETEC engine? I have planing to take this car back to Honda for check-up why I got so horrible MPG. Hope Honda can help me to find out the problem....read morehide

- Xcellant fuel eco, pick up is peppy,handling,trunk
- Terrible suspension, seats-super uncomfortable, too low entry point
First, I leased this car so my beef with Honda on the monthly payment will not be reflected in the review.
I have the 4 dr LX AT model. Looks great. Wonderful on gas/MPG which was the biggest reason to get the car. Handling is unbelievable -turns on a dime. Pick-up /pep is race car level plastering you to the seat. Trunk space for this sized car is very,very nice.Plenty of room.
Ah, the seats - the most uncomfortable seats in the world. What makes them worse is the lousy suspension -feeling every bump (not pothole) but every bump making it feel like a pothole.
I'm 6 ft and getting in requires not only bending body but yr head too. You will hit yr head a couple of times- guaranteed.
The Dashboard distraction/interest goes away after a short period of time-after all it's only a dashboard with temp,speed and gas gauges.
Some interior cheapness....read morehide

- Nothing worth to note
- Bad MPG, high price to own, hard seats, rattles, quality value not great
I own a Civic for the last 8 years and this last seems lacking the quality as the previous ones I had. There is the problem of not achieving the MPG as the sticker, rattles that is annoying for a new car, hard seats that require constant moving around or stops during long trips. Not a quality valued car....read morehide
