I feel it is the highest dependability and mechanical soundness and most affordable vehicles.

I just recently purchased my 2018 Honda Civic. I purchased it because my car previous to that was a Honda Civic and I had well over 100,000 miles on it. Within the 100,000 miles I have never had a single mechanical issue. Maintenance was very cheap as well for the entire time I own to the previous vehicle. My current 2018 Honda Civic is a very reliable car as well it has high marks in regards to safety dependability and reliability. There is no doubt that I will get many years of service out of this vehicle as well. It has a sunroof, nice Entertainment System, air condition, and safety airbags. You cannot beat Honda's reliability performance or dependability.

The latest Civic sedan has a more aggressive shape than others in its class, such as the Toyota Corolla, Chevrolet

The classic Honda Civic is easily one of the most important cars on the market, so when Honda released a downgraded version in 2012, the company disappointed buys as competitor models moved towards more upscale, full-featured compact cars. Honda thus gave the 2013 model a hasty facelift, but this stop-gap measure merely brought back older features. Then, in 2016, the Civic received a long-overdue revamp; Honda completely redesigned the model from the ground up, rocketing the Civic back to the forefront of the compact segment. Therefore, for its 2018 Civic model, Honda has decided to leave well enough alone and only make minimal updates.

- Randy L

The 2018 Honda Civic is very reliable and is a comfortable car.

I love my vehicle. My family has had Civics for about 8 years now and they have been very reliable. They're smooth riding and the gas mileage is amazing. Being in college I need a reliable car and that is what Honda Civic is. The only problem I have had with Honda is when I went to take my car in because my tire keep losing air. They told me there was nothing they could do so I took it somewhere else and they told me I just had a hole that needed patching. Other than that it has been amazing. The 2018 Honda Civic is awesome because the cloth inside on the seats is super nice and really easy to clean up if anything is spilt.
