A Great Ride with practical details for life

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

A tight close to the road vehicle that handles beautifully. It is turbo charged so entering and exiting highways is a breeze. Very sporty looking car and I get compliments on it. The back seat sits 2 fine but wouldn't fit any more comfortably. Wish it had more headroom in back seat. Gets good gas mileage but the number you are told does not run true for mine. Get about 25 miles a gallon on highways and about 19 - 20 rest of time. Seats are comfortable and on drivers side you can adjust height of seat, sadly not in passengers side and it is low. Radio system is very good and heating/air conditioning are excellent. Maintenance is low cost and tires held up beautifully. For a driver and passenger this is a great car but I would not purchase for a family. Owned a Honda before and love the way they just go and go but this time only needed a more compact car. Big trunk space ( do property management so often have construction supplies in trunk for workers. This is a great car

Small but roomy Honda Civic.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I really enjoy my 2016 Honda Civic. It is small, but it has room for five passengers and a lot of trunk space! The Honda Civic gets pretty great gas mileage and rarely needs more than routine maintenance. The leather interior is nice, but not nice in Texas heat. I have had to have all four wheels replaced, but I believe that is due to Texas roads. I really enjoy the music console. It allows for radio, iPod connection, Bluetooth connection, and much more. I really wish the navigation would be seen on the console screen. It is annoying to have the audio come through the speaker system, but you have to look at your phone for the map. Hands free calling is nice, although if your call has not started and you hit your right turn signal, it stops the voice activation. I really enjoy my right side and back up cameras. I also really enjoy the push start, however I wish it also had a remote start.

Pros and cons of a Honda civic 2016.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Overall, the Honda civic is a great vehicle in regards to performance and layout. Comfortable seating, easy to manage and understand consul. Unfortunately, there are two downfalls with the civic that I have encountered since having it. 1. The air conditioner cools but then suddenly will stop cooling and blows out hot air until you accelerate a bit then it blows out cool air again. 2. The civic is a low car, meaning, there is a metal plate under the car that covers the oil filter, etc.. I have managed to damage that metal plate twice because the car is so low and Honda will not cover the cost, you as the owner of the vehicle are responsible for fixing it. Easily $100 every time.

Great car for style, function and durability!

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

This car was a great buy! The design looks very high end and my model came with all the bells and whistles of a much more expensive car. It has the touch screen, bluetooth connection, heated seats, leather interior and back up and side cameras that are so helpful. I drive over 300 miles per week for work so the great mileage per gallon is a big perk for me and helps me stay in budget. With regular maintenance, I have not had any major issues with any of the cars features and I have put about 70,000 miles on it over the 3+ years that I have owned it. This is my second Honda Civic. It is a great car and I would purchase a Honda again.

About the Honda civic. The economy setting lets you get improved gas mileage.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Rides smooth, great gas mileage, great looking car. The interior is cloth but it's very comfortable for long rides. It has a big trunk for when you go on long trips or big trips to the grocery store. The civic has side view mirrors so you can see your blind spot to help you navigate lanes. The touchscreen pos in the middle of the car is great for everything from changing radio stations, adjusting settings in your car, to navigating with the GPS.

- Edward S

Honda civic review: great gas mileage, low cost maintenance.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Great gas mileage and I have had few maintenance problems. The car came with a factory defect brake defect which was a problem until it was recalled. The wireless setting between my phone and car is a problem. This seems to be a problem that the company can't fix. Overall the car drives well and has been reliable. The fabric is stain resistant. The trunk is very spacious for a small car.

- Gat L

Stop button when you are in a traffic light is very helpful.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

No problems, but I missing my CD player in my radio. Also, I would rather to have sunroof. I would change the camera for the CD player. Sometimes the reverse works when the driver does not have on the seat belt. It is a unsafe issue. Also the case does not beep when you are in reverse and you are almost to hit the car with any obstacle, car, protruding object, or person.

- Milton M

Technology upgrades are the most beneficial aspect of the car

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I love my Honda Civic EX-L Sedan. It drives smoothly and is very comfortable. I love that the seats are heated and the climate temperature can be easily adjusted by the touch of a button. The hands free link is especially nice and is an added safety feature. The information button that informs me of how many miles the car has until it is on empty is so helpful!

- Caitlin C

Honda Civic 2016, Overall a good vehicle but issues with the air conditioner

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Having problems with the air conditioner after three years of use with the car. The air conditioner no longer gets cold. Also had to replace the battery about 3 years after buying. Otherwise no problems, easy to drive, spacious. Had a sunroof although I rarely use it. Good gas mileage, easy to use touch screen that connects to cell phone.

- Caitlin H

It's smarter than the average car and prevents lock ins!

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

The look and feel of this vehicle is wonderful. It has all the upgrades, along with a sleek design and lots of interior space. I have had a couple air conditioning issues with this vehicle, but it is 100% dealership-maintained and Honda's customer service has been fantastic. All repairs have been covered by warranty as well.

- Amira S

My Honda civic gets me where I want to go in style.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

The car is pretty comfortable, and has Bluetooth and a back up camera but there is no CD player. The console is kind of hard to keep clean. It has cruise control and an eco button. The fuel economy is good on it. Esp on the highway. The trunk space is great. Harvest really had any problems with it. I have had it 2 years.

- Amy D

I really like the eco feature.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I really love my current 2016 Honda civic ex. It is my first car that I leased and it is the best decision I have made because it is so reliable. It saves gas, perfect for someone that has long daily commutes. Other than the fact that the seats are white and cloth which get stained easily, I have no problem at all.

- Linda F

Love my car even with its minor issues.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

For the most part I have no issues or problems with my car. The only thing that I would really consider mentioning is one of my tires seems to have a slow leak. So my light constantly turns off cause the tires will be off balanced. Mechanics have told me it is not the tire but the car or even possibly the rims.

- Lisa V

Great for a person without kids

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

It's comfortable but very small. Not suited for a family with kids, especially if you need to install a car seat. It does have great mileage per gallon and it's very reliable for a person without kids. The car seats very low so it often hits the ground is there are any potholes but it runs very smoothly

- Silvia P

Nothing is special its a base model.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Radio not connecting to iPhone 7 plus for Bluetooth, it would freeze all together,I would have to pull over shut off the car restart it again, just so I could get the radio to work, the Bluetooth would still not work, I stopped using it all together and use my headphones to take a call.

- Candace S

Its grey with light colored seats.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I bought it in 2016 and already had to have a/c and tires replaced on it. Sometimes feels like the breaks stick and a/c never worked as good as I feel it should, also when tire is low it don't tell us which one or how much pressure it has in it. I would not be buying another Honda.

- Tammy H

Honda civic. Great ride for the price

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I have been very please with my Honda so far. It did have a slight coolant leak but it was covered under warranty and the dealership repaired it at no cost. I do wish it had heated mirrors but that was a different trim package available. Fuel economy and power meet all expectations

- William M

Love the side camera to eliminate blind spots.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Car is great on gas and runs beautifully. The breaks are very responsive and work well. Only thing I do not recommend is that it does not drive well in inclement weather, whether It be rain or snow. Love the features and always get compliments on my car. I always recommend Honda.

- Linda M

I love the color and the shape. It's a very attractive car.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

There are no problems. The car is perfect. The gas has a good range. The brakes are good and the car lets me know if the passenger does not have their seatbelt on. I would definitely recommend it to a friend. The car is very reliable and has not caused me any problems so far.

- Kali A

2016 Honda civic ex review.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

My car has high mpg which makes it very reliable. I have only had a very issues with the touch screen but it has always been fixed by restarting the system. My car is very safe and the cameras around the car makes driving easier. The sunroof adds a fun element to my car.

- Anna R

Smart, sleek and reliable.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Have had no issues with this vehicle other that the splash guard coming loose and scraping on the road. The vehicle is great on gas mileage. The exterior of the car is very sleek and attractive and the interior is a very clean design and easy to navigate dashboard.

My Honda civic 2016 review.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

Ever since I have had my Honda civic I have had no problems at all with it! It is 2 years old and still has not had any issues! My car is extremely reliable on the road and is also really safe to drive. I enjoy all of the features that it came with when I got it!

My Honda civic 2016 review.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

My vehicle is very reliable, great on gas and has not given me any trouble. It is really a nice looking car and very comfortable. It has a backup camera for parking which really helps. I love that I can also hook my phone up to the radio and use my Bluetooth.

- Lori B

I love my car, every part of it.

2016 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan

I have had no problems with my car at all. I love it. The gas mileage is unbelievable and I like the handling of the car. I named my car zippy because that describes her perfectly. The car is roomy and a very large trunk. I want to keep this car forever.
