"I totally enjoy my Civic! It gets great gas mileage, and has very good acceleration. It is fun to drive, and is very reliable. I have not had to have a lot of maintenance aside from the manufacturer recommendations. I highly recommend this car!"

"I've loved my car, I've had it since I was 16 and I just graduated college. I drove it across the country to school and it's been a reliable beast. Few repairs here and there but that is to be expected from a car that is almost old enough to drive itself. Mine looks pretty worn out mostly because I was 16 when I got it. Cosmetically, it isn't looking great. I did have to replace the brakes but I'm pretty sure that was my fault. It gets me where I need it to without much hassle."

Pros: "Dependable, Economical, Reasonable Comfort"

Cons: "If luxury is your focus, not likely ring the bell"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"After 10+ years still have the original brakes and exhaust system. Received a $2,000 green tax deduction in 2005 when purchased. Honda replaced the hybrid battery pack at 9.5 years without any hassle. Had to replace catalytic convertor after 9.5 years. This car has been more dependable, loyal, and reliable than two spouses and almost as valuable as my 7 year old Bichon Frise, Chester. Over the last 10+ years compared to a car that averaged 25 mpg, calculate a %5,200 gasoline saving at $3.30/gallon. I am keeping the car, now that the hybrid battery is new, otherwise I would buy the same car again. If you want dependability, economy, and reasonable comfort this is a great car. Winters in Maine bring fuel mpg down to about 40-42 mpg. But summers rarely require running AC."

"Car was trouble free up to about 240,000 miles. Then had problems with an oil leak and water pump. If you do the regular maintence will give you literally trouble free service. Everything still works. interior still in good shape."
