Purchased As New
Having owned 2 BMWs, and an Audi A4, I just wanted a good, reliable car with good mileage (a turbo GTI sold last year was getting 16MPG on premium at nearly $5/gallon -- had to trade that in). Civic with leather was a surprising choice -- I thought of Civics as cheapo economy cars -- but after a year I'm astonished at the value in a car that came in at about $23k to own -- super high quality interior, elegant and well-made; no rattles; interior as roomy as a friend's midsize Lexus; great sporty comfortable ride with surprising handling and fun factor (I had a '97 Accord so I can tell you Honda can design in dull when they want to -- with this, they designed in fun); the exterior design is really elegant, i love looking at the car; quality and workmanship superb -- doors close with a solid sound, frame is tight -- GTI (though i loved it) frame groaned when going up a sharp incline in parking garage -- no such body groans with Civic -- front seat position huge and welcoming, great visibility out all windows, quiet interior, outlandish mileage. My dad has a Porsche and marveled at quality of the Civic interior -- all in all, I cant understand how so much value is provided at such a low price. Top it off, the car is manufactured in the US, so jobs stay here and it goes to show how superb American workmanship can be when the product is good. All in all, an amazing deal....read morehide

- good handling
- road noise, car feels like it is made out of cardboard or paper mache
just bought the car disappointed with the feel, feels like you are riding in a tin can, car doesn't feel secure compared with other vehicles on the road. Handling is good, so is GPS. I made a mistake buying this car
