Incredibly reliable and long lasting car.
Honda Civics are incredibly reliable cars. I have owned mine for 11 years now and have primarily only needed to do very simple and cost effective maintenance on it over the years. The maintenance and repairs beyond that have been from a couple of traffic accidents that would have totaled other cars but with the Civic only required replacing a panel or two (or just bumping dents out) and maybe a part or two. It is an older car but it holds up well mileage wise and gas performance wise. It is smooth on long trips and has enough pep and maneuverability for city driving.
