"I bought this car for the gas mileage. If I watch how I drive, I get average 47 mpg. It has not let me down. The performance and handling are great. It is comfortable for all 4 of us. Roomy for a small car. It looks great and my teenage kids want it."
"I currently have 22k miles on the Civic Lx within 10 months of purchasing it. The car currently run better then new, now that it is broken in. I calculate my MPG every time i fill up. I average approximately 32-34MPG normally or at extreme low it would be at 27MPG extreme high was around 40MPG I do about 40% city 60% highway. The only thing i dont like about the car is the cheap paint. I have about 10 chip marks ranging from my front bumper, hood, side mirror, and even on the top of the car. The car paint chip so easily."
"Love my car, I'v had it for almost two years, it has great get up and go, I do a lot of driving with my job and i get on average 34mpg, with mixed driving hwy and street.The only thing that is a draw back is the blind spots, but other than that I recommend the civic."
"I bought my civic in june of 06 and I just turned over 47,000. The only thing I've had to do besides regular oil changes (and one of those special maintence packages) is buy new tires. I put michelin pilot h rated tires on and what a differene it makes! This car is a road hugger and great in the rain. The only things I have a problem with is that it doesn't have what it takes to accellerate very fast...it takes awhile to get it up to speed when merging onto a freeway, expecially on an incline. I should have gotten the 5 speed...that would have made a big difference. It also has a blind spot on the back passenger side, you have to really look to see if there is oncoming traffic in order to move over. Other than that, this has been a great car that gets great gas mileage. Travel 150 miles a day and spend about $70 a week in gas. Can't complain about that!!"
"Wanted this car for a long time, when they came out with the 4 dr I had an 18 month old, so I thought it be cool. Not really. Still an awesome car. the black fabric for the interior shows any type of trash."
"i own a honda bike, but live somewhere it gets cold so aside from purchasing a 30 plus thousand dollar subaru wrx sti this si was the next bext thing in quality and performance. hp wise and overall stat wise its just about the strongest lil 4 cylinder out there amongst its peers."
"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."
"This is my 2nd civic from the 2006-present generation. My first was the Si, which was excellent. My current vehicle is the 2007 civic EX, and i cannot offer anything but positive feedback for this model. From the seats to the powerband, to the gas mileage, the resale value, this car is a gem and i would recommend to anyone"
"You can't beat the gas mileage...34 around town and 41 on the highway. I love the way it handles and it has plenty of zip. The car is comfortable and is very sporty. I also like the way the sun roof retracts inside the roof, not over the top of the car. Comparable cars would cost a lot more!"
