This car has been incredible. I can hardly believe I only pay $169 per month for it. The acceleration is seamless. I look down at the speedometer and have to force myself to slow down because 75 feels like 40. The car is very spacious and roomy. I was told to get an Accord so I didn't feel like I was driving a clown car. The Civic is nowhere near a clown car. I could easily fit four in the backseat even though it is built for three with three seat belts. The engine is quiet, but very powerful. I can accelerate from 30 to 60 and hardly hear or feel a thing. The car is very modern, and for no extra cost. Bluetooth, rear view camera, and all season tires all come standard - at least I was not charged extra.
Story
Taking it on the highway and being able to go fast with the radio turned up and not hearing the roar of the engine. It was like being in a noise controlled device with fast speeds and no roaring sounds. The only vehicle I've been in that's any quieter is a Tesla.
Pros
The car, for what I pay, does not feel cheap or like corners were cut in making it. The car is very sturdy. It handles the bumps and pot holes seamlessly. The gas mileage is excellent. I don't have a very long commute, but it is still nice only needing gasoline once every two weeks. $20 fills up the whole roughly 12-13 gallon tank, and my friends and co-workers with SUVs are always envious. The car is an excellent size. I can fit into smaller spaces, but I also don't feel like it's lacking in space. The back seat leaves ample legroom and easily fits three people. The trunk has held six sui... (more)
Cons
There are very few things I can think of that I see as cons. As far as improvements to the vehicle, I would say the car could be built in such a way that it's easier to see cars in other lanes in the mirrors. Even when I turn my head, I find the view very obstructed. I have to turn my whole body several times to ensure there are not other cars, particularly on the left side. The air and heat could be more effective. I have found I've needed to leave the heat on for sometimes 20 minutes just to get warm enough to stop seeing my breath. Other co-workers have not stated it takes that long in ... (more)

My husband has been an avid Honda Civic owner for many years. If it wasn't for his history with Honda Civic vehicles, I may not have considered this vehicle for purchase. Starting from the experience at the dealership, till today, I have had pride in ownership of my car. The dark grey body color with dark tinted windows from the factory really make this a stunning car to see. Driving this car is so fun! The way it reacts through any road condition makes me believe this car will be mine for a very long time. It idles well in heavy, commuting traffic but also makes you feel like you are floating through the miles during off-peak traffic hours.
Story
We took our car to the coast with us this past spring for our wedding celebration. Kids in another car because we packed so much in our Honda Civic that there was no room for passengers. All (family of 5) of our luggage, decorations, and practically our house fit just fine. It was great on fuel economy to our destination and once we unloaded all of our essentials, it was a cool car to jaunt ar... (more)
Pros
There are several pros to owning this car. I really like the Eco-system option on the vehicle. I'm able to monitor in real-time my fuel economy and adjust my driving conditions to get the most fuel efficiency. The controls on the dashboard and console are easy to use and I especially like the steering controls as another option for controlling most aspects of the console. I'm constantly using the Bluetooth option for listening to music or making phone calls with no issue. In all road conditions, this car operates like a champ. Even though I have a fear of driving in any type of rain, wheth... (more)
Cons
There has only been a couple of minor things that have annoyed me with this car. Day one of purchasing the brand new car that had 15 miles on the odometer and I noticed the back seat floorboard carpet was not installed with any type of car or attention to detail because immediately and without cause the carpet separated from the plastic frame of the car. It still to this day has to be occasionally "tucked" back into the plastic frame of the car. This issue has spread to other parts of the carpet of the car. It gave me the impression of cheap work in an otherwise seemingly nice car.
