Purchased As New
I have to roll my eyes at some of these OTHER consumer reviews here; this is about the 2010 Honda Civic- not some previous purchase. Let's stick to the topic of what we're supposed to review here in an objective way.
Now I bought a brand new 2010 Honda Civic LX. I've driven it for nearly 200 miles now and have had no issues whatsoever. I drove a 1995 Honda Civic EX (178K and it was still mechanically sound before I sold it) before and the upgrades from that have been pretty darn good. I'm getting nearly 30+ MPG; I'm a daily commuter who doesn't always take the freeways either. It handles very well and is quick & nimble. I have no fear whatsoever about merging onto the freeway with this car as it's got some pep when I step on the gas. It seems much roomier than my old Honda and little things like an adjustable telescoping steering wheel and height adjustment on the driver's seat is pretty nice. From a driver's POV, the dashboard is laid out very efficiently although it did take some adjustment for me to get used to the digital speedometer & the tachometer being on separate planes. I can reach the radio controls, heat/ AC, and all of the other controls relatively easily without feeling as though I have to search and diverting my attention elsewhere. Nice map lights were a pleasant touch and the steering wheel is comfortable. Visibility through the massive front windshield is spacious.
My only few knocks on this car are that I thought the seats could've been a little more plush. The headrests seem stiff and there could've been an armrest in the back seat (I guess the EX model has one back there). Interior wise the materials were a little more plasticky than I prefer but I know I didn't buy a Bentley. The brakes have yet to be really tested with hard braking but they seem a trifle stiff so far.
I found this car to be a great deal (was offered .9% financing) and if it lasts as long as I've had my previous Honda (15+ years), I will be more than happy with my purchase. It's been a nice upgrade for me so far and I couldn't be happier with the purchase of my 2010 Honda Civic. I'd recommend this vehicle to my friends and family too.
