If you appreciate mechanical refinement similar to what you might find in a commercial airliner, the 2012 Honda Civic is the clear choice in the category. And even if you don't easily discern such
The 2012 Honda Civic is neither as sporty nor as stylish as the Mazda3 or Ford Focus, the interior design isn't as interesting as the Hyundai Elantra's, and it isn't the smoothest or quiet
The 2012 Honda Civic is not the smoothest or quietest car in the category. Nor is it the most fun to drive. Curious, then, that we'd rate it tops in driving dynamics in our shootout of the four newest cars in the category. How does it do it?

This cover is fastened with 4 screws which is virtually impossible to take out every time you want to change the oil. I used to change my cars oil in 5-10 mins max. On this car it took me more than 30 mins both the time I changed oil. Honda .. please change this design."

"I did a lot of research for at least 2 months before i bought my civic coupe ex. I am 22 and this car reflects me so to speak. Everywhere i can i get complements about the car especially those grills in the wheels. Inside i can stream my music quickly through bluetooth and rear view camera amazes anyone who takes ride in my car. Could not have asked for better price and oh after 2 days of discussion with the dealer, got it for $19350 with some add ons to it."
