The ultimate quality vehicle for a budget!

I bought my car used. My 2006 Honda civic has withstood the test of time. Even after 200,000+ miles the car still drives wonderfully. While the car looks very small on the outside, on the inside there is ample space within the car and a large trunk which is great for groceries. One of the nice features of this car is the option to defrost your side mirrors along with the front and back windshield. This car's small gas tank is made up by the great gas mileage! I personally love the moon roof as it is a nice addition for when you want to enjoy a wonderful day of driving. The car has great handling and is quite responsive. The car's small size is also helpful for parking in small or tight spaces, but it can also be easily pushed around in the wind due to its low mass. One issue I have noticed with this car is that it is much more prone to skidding on ice and snow. Some issues I have run into is with the car's delicate wipers. Most wipers should be able to take a beating, but the Honda civic wipers are not totally reliable. I have had to replace my driver's side wiper a couple of times because the blood has broken off while in use! Be very careful of your wipers in the winter. I had to learn the hard way that these wipers were flimsy. This vehicle also does not have reverse parking lights so backing out in the dark doesn't have the best visibility. Overall the car handles quite well and drives fairly smoothly despite being a car that is lower to the ground. The acceleration is also quite smooth. Another feature I enjoy is the car's cruise control and steering mounted radio controls. These feature have helped me to enjoy the comforts of my car without taking my eyes off the road. The Honda civic has gone above and beyond for serving my needs as a driver on a budget. I would recommend this car to anyone looking for a quality and affordable vehicles.

Money saver for your gas budget. Affordable purchase! Drives excellent.

This car gets awesome gas miles! Which is amazing for a struggling single mom that only has to put about 20 dollars in for a full tank of gas and drive for about a week and 1/2 before I have to fill up again. The price of the vehicle because it's obviously a 2006 and older, is very affordable and I paid about 6, 000 in cash. It drives very well but it is a very light car. I do dislike when I get into the vehicle it sits so low it feels like you are plopping down into the seat and it's sometimes hard getting a toddler out of off. It has 4 doors and a pretty good size trunk. This was a used car so it has a new engine because I guess the engine was recalled and the previous owner had it fixed when he received the recall notices. Over all I love the car because it drives so efficiently. My number one concern is saving money and this car is the key to saving money on transportation! I love it.

It runs well and gets great gas mileage.

My 2006 Honda civic lx coupe wasn't my first choice when looking at vehicles after the transmission went out in my prior car. I honestly chose this car due to my limited funds at the time. Its a cute little car for someone younger than me perhaps but I would prefer a 4 door vehicle with a little bit more room and not quite as low as this car is. Due to some back issues, its difficult getting in and out of this car sometimes. Its a Honda of course so if its maintained, it still runs pretty well so that is definitely a plus. . Over all, it's pretty much just too small and too low of a vehicle for my liking, although it does have a pretty good size trunk for as little as the rest of the car is.
