Description:
The Civic is Honda’s compact car that is offered in sedan and coupe versions. First introduced as a small, inexpensive hatchback in 1972, the Civic has increased in size during its lifetime while continuing to offer excellent fuel economy. The entire Civic line was all-new for 2006.

The basic Civic is available as a sedan and coupe and comes in several trims: DX, DX-VP, LX-S, EX and EX-L. The Civic SI, the performance-oriented trim, offers 57 more horsepower than the base model, a few more performance options and a starting price of around $7,000 more than the base Civic.

The Civic also comes in two eco-friendly options: the Honda Civic Hybrid, which is reviewed separately, and the GX, a hybrid alternative that runs on Compressed Natural Gas. Unfortunately the GX is only sold in California (and other states that have accepted California's Zero-Emission Vehicle regulations). It costs about $10,000 more than a base Civic.

Thus far, I have really enjoyed my Honda Civic. I am getting 36 miles to the gallon. Also, my insurance went down $100 every six months. The car looks small from the outside, but is quite roomy inside.

Review 2 of 566

Price Paid:  $20100.00 from Capital Honda

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Civic EX

Strengths:
Reliability, style, fuel efficiency, resale value

Weaknesses:
Weak highway acceleration, weak headlights, cheap interior fabrics and materials

Summary:
I loved this car more than life. It took some time to grow on me (I'd owned a V6 prior) but once I saw I was getting 40mpg on the highway and 28 in the city with the AC on, I never looked back! Awesome car, never had a SINGLE problem with it in the three years I owned it. Fun to drive (like a go cart) and when I was finally forced to sell it I got a very decent price for it. A+ in my book.

Review 4 of 566

Price Paid:  $17300.00 from The Honda Store, Boa

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Civic

Strengths:
Lifetime, MPG, room, trunk space, power

Weaknesses:
none

Summary:
I had a 1999 Civic that had over 170,000 miles on it. It ran great around town but had trouble with the big hills that's why I decided to get a new car. While shopping I had to decided on a few different cars but in the end the Civic was the best choice for me. I bought a Blue 4 door Civic brand new. It has been a great car! I get around 27 mpg in the city an close to 35 on the highway. It accomodates myself (thin 5 foot something frame) and also my fiance (a larger 6 foot something frame) with ease. The seat pumps up and down and the steering wheel telescopes out. Both features make it easy for anyone to drive. I highly recommend the Civic to anyone. It is a reliable car that will run forever (like my 99 170,000 mile baby!) They are very affordable and extremely safe with one of the highest saftey ratings of any car in it's class. They are great cars!

Review 5 of 566

Price Paid:  $0.00

Year / Model Reviewed:
2008 Honda Civic EX 4dr

Summary:
The Civic’s that are made in Canada has very poor fit and finish. The hood on the left and right fender would not be even, other panels on the car would be off on each side and also the bumper in the back. If they can't even make that right, just imagine the engine and the transmission components. “Honda owner check your civics and you would be able to tell the difference on the body panels are not even on the right and left sides of the car”. I asked the dealer sales people and their replied “they don’t know why”.


However the civic hybrids are made very well, those are made in Japan.
