"Only 5000 miles after 20 months. Town mileage was comparable to my 1994 Dodge Intrepid's mileage in town. Nice car, except for long trips (2+hours). All seats are uncomfortable after driving long distances.Sore backs! If you drive in snow, like we have in Maine, best to buy winter tires, because the Civic is all over the road during a storm. Managed to get 39mpg once. Usually get about 32mpg combined.
Has many nice features that are appreciated."
"Good gas mileage. I get between 30 and 39 mpg. Good range on the tank.
The speedometer is situated in an odd location compared to conventional cars. Now that I am used to it, I cannot believe how useful it is. You barely look away from the road to see speed and other useful info. I find that it is now weird driving my wife's car!
Seats lack support for longer drives. Not horrible, but occasional stops are required to stretch out. I am 6'2" and the interior is fine for me. I never feel like the roof is too low.
Road noise can be a bit loud t highway speeds. Open the sun roof and then who cares, right? It is useful to remember that the Civic is an economy car and if you keep that in mind, the road noise is acceptable. If you want a car with no noise, buy an Acura.
Overall, I am happy with the styling, mileage, performance, handling and quality. Wish the seats were abit more supportive."
