Editor's Overview

Although it underwent a major overhaul just one year ago, the Honda Civic enters the 2013 model year with fresh batch of standard equipment, better interior materials and improved ride quality. With a range of engines to choose from, along with sedan, coupe and sporty Si variants, there is a Civic to fit most tastes.

Love my Civic. Good performance and great in gas. Never breaks down.

My car is good on gas, but still has some decent power. I have the si version of a Civic and its a manual transmission. The gear shifting is very smooth and there are plenty of places to store things in the car. I am not too tall, so the only negative thing I can think of about my car is the leg room. Does not matter to me, but to taller passengers, it does. The car may not be expensive to buy, but the parts are, and because I have the si model, the brakes, oil and gasoline are all more expensive than the regular Civics. I have never had many issues with Honda's. The mileage can get very high without any major problems. I have owned one that got almost 400, 000 miles on it and was still running fine. I was told because I had a manual transmission, so I would suggest that if you want your car to last longer, on top of the long life Honda's already have.

I save money with the gas mileage. I feel safe & secure.

The Honda Civic coupe that I currently own is absolutely amazing on gas. I haven't had any issues with major parts such as the transmission or brakes. The dealership that I bought the car from allows free oil changes and car washes for life which is super convenient. I enjoy the Bluetooth so that my phone automatically hooks up through my car speakers. This also serves as a safety feature since you do not need to touch your cell to talk on the phone. The trunk is very big for this size car which is a plus for me. The back up camera is also a plus. One area on the vehicle that I think serves as a visual restraint is the area on the outer sides of the windshield. Sometimes this inhibits my view of the road. I do believe they have since changed this on the newer models of the car.

Compact Civic: cute, comfortable, communicates, careful with the blind spots.

I like that the speedometer shows your exact speed in numbers, rather than pointing to your approximate speed. I like the radio stations I can access. I like that my car is compact and fits easily in tight parking spaces. What I do not like about my car is the transmission. It accelerates very slowly. It doesn't travel fast uphill. Its gas consumption isn't great either, the tank doesn't hold enough gas. Another problem is the blind spots, it is very hard to check before switching lanes, which can be dangerous. Making left turns can also be scary in this vehicle. Overall it is a comfortable car and I am happy with its performance at getting me from point A to point B comfortably. The camera feature helps me back out of garages and parking spaces safely.
