Civic 2012 ex review of interior and mechanical problems.

2012 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I problems. Great car. I like the sunroof and it has great fuel economy. However, it is quite loud at times and does not have great acceleration. The sound in the speakers is nice. Overall, it is spacious for the front two seats and a good amount of legroom for the passenger seat. No problems cosmetically or mechanically.

Great drive and value for your money.

2012 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Drives great. A bit noisy on the inside but normal for civics. Leather is smooth and car is speedy. Blind spots are a bit problematic sometimes on the sides for shorties but no other issues. The eco button definitely saves on gas but needs to be off to merge onto roads.

2012 Honda civic sedan review.

2012 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Love the exl features of sunroof, heated leather seats and navigation. Great mileage per gallon. Car still running great at 100,000 miles. Added a remote starter and mud flaps. Would definitely buy a Honda civic exl again - but a newer model in the near future.

2012 Honda Civic: Overall happy with purchase

2012 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Car look is very clean. Unhappy with the quality of the interior leather over time. Driver's seat is stained and partially ripping. Had to replace the starter at only 80K miles. Gets good gas mileage overall. The interior ride noise is a bit loud.
