2005 Honda Civic LX SE Coupe
My car is a 5 seater Honda civic lx special edition. It runs 30 miles per gallon, with a 5 speed stick shift. It is fuel-efficient and has an environmentally friendly engine. It has been extremely reliable. It has been run on very little oil, the tires have been super bald, and even the battery has gone bad. All of these show I am not the best of car owners, but it still chugs along. This car can handle it. Every time I go in for an oil change I feel proud because that tends to be the only issue other than possible replacements with time. This was the car I learned to drive stick shift on. I like how the car made learning easy with is smooth gear transitions and easy to feel clutch. The engine does not mind hitting the occasional 6k on the tachometer - Hondas are just build for that kind of thing. The gas mileage is incredible. Obviously when you buy a Honda you are not paying for its bells and whistles - you are paying for a good, reliable, and dependable vehicle. So as far as the quality of the interior/options go, it is not great. You could easily find a car in the same category as the civic with more options, but you'll usually compromise on reliability. Overall it is a great car.
