"I bought this car with 16,000 miles on it and in 1 and 1/2 years have put about 80,000 miles on it. (I drive for a living) I have never had any problems with this car. We do all our own maintanance on it. Maintanance is a little more expensive than on a regular civic. A little road noise but to be expected with an economy car. I love it so much I want a new Civic but this one has carpool stickers (I live in CA) and I can't transfer stickers to new car. I love this car!"
