"After a few months of research, my 2003 Honda Civic EX sedan was the first car I bought, and I hope to own it for a very long time. Its great gas mileage, style, and reputation for reliability put it on my short list, and then I was surprised by the roomy interior and comfort given its small size. I get it serviced on schedule, but have needed nothing other than oil changes and windshield wiper blades replaced (I drove it in Seattle for the first 3 years, where it rains a bit). It is a little noisy on the freeway, but i like it - I feel like I'm completely connected to the road and in control. I absolutely love my car!!! Best purchase I've ever made."
"This was my first new car and it still feels new to me. I drive an hour each direction to and from work 5 days a week and this car has never failed me. It has 67,000 miles on it and it drives the same as the day I brought it home with 150 miles on it. I have never needed to do any major repairs on it, I just keep up on my oil changes and tire rotations. There is nothing about this car that I don't like."
