"This is my first Honda and so far I am very happy with the performance, quality and mpg. Other brand new vehicles I had before: 2002 Toyota Rav4, 2003 Hyundai Tiburon V6, 2005 Mitsubishi Endeavor. Used vehicles: 2000 Toyota Solara V6, 2000 Nissan Altima."
"the car will take anything you can give it. Iv always been hard on my car or truck and the new civic just wont give in. I say this is one of the most dependable car iv ever had. Im hooked. Jacob from sevierville"
"I've had this car (EX Coupe) for over a year and a half, after replacing my Accord because of an accident. The Civic is an incredible value. Never any repair problems, and the maintenance minder system is so easy I never forget to take it in for regular service.
The gas mileage ranges from 29 MPG for mostly street driving to over 40 MPG on highway-only trips (yes, I'm the type of person that vigilantly records this, so this is definitely true).
Handling is great--the car takes turns like no one's business. You feel very safe in this car. The stiffer suspension is noticable on a dirt-type road, but I rarely drive on those so it's not a problem.
The car is surprisingly roomy. You kind of have to throw yourself into the car because of its low height, and it can be annoying to climb into the backseat because it's a coupe, but once inside it doesn't feel like a compact car at all.
The other great features that I love are the input jack for my iPod and the fantastic speaker/subwoofer system.
*The slope of the windshields makes the front seat warmer than the back. We noticed this especially on a long winter trip, when the person in the backseat was freezing but the people in front were baking. That's the only reason why I gave it a "4" on comfort.
*Maybe because the car is so low, people seem to have trouble seeing me and tend to cut me off in passing."
"gas mileage is pretty good, i get about 33 going 80mph. (i do drive a little more aggressive then most people).
pros: mpg, sporty looking, dashboard configuration awesome.
cons: CRAMPED Im 5'4'' and people in the back seat have NO leg room. HUGE blind stops, HUGE. the drive by wire is sluggish and makes driving the manual trans difficult. (drive by wire means there is no cable that opens the throttle body to let air in, its a electric sensor controlled by computer). had numerous recalls and several leaks. loud road noise, I will try softer tires if I don't trade it in soon."
"NEEDED A NEW PAINT JOB ON THE FRONT BUMPER WHEN A CAR WASH PEELED OFF SOME PAINT.ALSO, NEEDED FRONT STRUT
MOUNTING BUSHINGS PER A SERVICE BULLETIN . CAR HANDLES GREAT,CONSTANT
35+ MPG.A LITTLE NOISY INSIDE @ FREEWAY SPEEDS,HARD TO TALK ON THE CELL OR HOLD A CONVERSATION"
"I have an '07 automatic lx civic coupe. I have had it for 3 months and love it! I love bragging to my friends about the gas mileage, and everyone compliments the interior. I've gone up to 90 mph and haven't heard any noises like some others have said. The digital speedometer and gas gauge is very, very convenient.
Yesterday, I left my car in the shop to get the windows tinted, and drove my friend's car and my mom's to run errands. I felt so uncomfortable in them and all I could think about was how much better my civic was!
I would recommend this car to anyone!"
"I have had this car for about 4 months, and I absolutely love it. I get comments everywhere I go about this car. People are constantly raving about it. I recently found out I am having a 3rd child and am having to trade it in and am just heart broken! If you love a stylish, super fast cars buy this one!"
"I average 30 mpg, far from the 51 on the Monroney sticker. Cheap tires Honda put on wore out in 17,000 miles. Road noise is loud, car has no low end, dangerous trying to get on the freeways. Can't see the navi in the sun, and the navi says things are on the wrong side of the street, no way is the navi worth $2,000.
There is only ONE thing good about this car, it's not as ugly as the Prius. Just a little less ugly."
"I traded a 2004 Scion xA in on my civic. It was the best decision I hav evr made. I love everything about my Civic. The cockpit is innovative and yet keeps that typical Honda style. The feature are immense. The car is a five in every category. I would reccommend it to anyone looking in this class."
"I love my Civic!!! This is the first vehicle that I bought and it is def. my baby...it drives great, looks great inside and out, its fast and comfortable, comes with lots of fun features...the ex is awesome, it seems very "luxury"...i also love my seats they're so soft and do not get dirty at all...all in all i love my Civi shes my baby and anyone considering to get on most def SHOULD!!"
"THIS IS THE FIRST CAR I HAVE BOUGHT BRAND NEW AND I AM VERY PLEASED.... GREAT ON GAS... VERY STYLISH AND BEST OF ALL... AFFORDABLE. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS VEHICLE FOR A FIRST, SECOND OR THIRD CAR."
"I have owned many, many Honda Civics from an 80 model, to a 98 dx hatch, to an 05 si hatch, an 06 ex sedan (which was very,very awesome in all aspects except performance and stereo) and now an 07 ex coupe. There are some great things about this car like mileage, styling, performance for engine size, etc. But, oh my God, rattles, uncomfortable hard seats, and absolutely the clunkiest 5 speed manual I have ever, ever, ever driven. I've had Toyota pickups with smoother shifting. My 05 si hatch manual trans was like butter. What has happened at Honda. The Accords are still the creme of the crop for quality and I also have an Odyessy van that is top notch too, but someone forgot about the poor little ole civic, especially the coupe."
