Great reliable fuel efficient car.

This is a very reliable car. I bought it new and have had no issues other than a flat tire. The vehicle displays when maintenance is needed. It has not only a dc outlet but also a USB port which for me is important. The sound system is nice. I listen to loud music often and the speakers still perform just as well as the day I bought it. The seats are comfortable and reasonably adjustable. The trunk is spacious for the size of the car and the back seats fold down if needed. The gas mileage is very good. I often make long road trips on only one fill up. The only downside in my opinion is that the windshield wipers do not have and adjustable setting. Sometimes they are either too fast or too slow. Over all I love this car and will own it until the day that it dies.

New Honda design reinvents the dashboard and makes it all about the driver.

This design of the Civic is very different from the previous models. It seems bigger and the dashboard is like almost like a cockpit. The driver space is rounded making everything angled toward the driver. The speedometer is on a second level of the dash and is digital. At first this seems okay, but then I realized that it is actually kind of annoying because the top of the steering wheel often completely blocks the speed. You have to adjust the seat in order to see it better. The passenger side dash is ridiculously large. It is like a table over the glove box. Not entirely sure of the purpose of this but there does not seem to be much passenger side space because of it. Overall it is a great car though, like most Honda's!

It gets really great gas mileage and holds up really well for traveling.

I have a silver 2012 Honda Civic. It has held together nicely on many long road trips. One downside is that it takes full-synthetic oil which can make oil changes pricey. It drives nicely, gets great gas mileage and is easy to use. It doesn't fit child car seats all that well. The front seat has to be pushed up a little too far for someone to sit in the passenger seat comfortably (Britax brand). When I first bought the car, I didn't like that the radio/dashboard area faced the driver, but now it has become second nature and causes no issues. When the Econ button is on, the car doesn't speed up all that well but it's an easy fix - just turn off Econ until you are up to speed.
