"I've had this car for 9 years, and took it from 20,000 to 270,000 miles and from LA to Seattle. Never ever let me down. Power train (engine, transmission, frame) and interiors (AC, doors, lights, electric windows, electric locks, moonroof), been close to perfect through these 9 years. I had an accident at 100,000 miles and changed the radiator and per factory recommendation on miles also the timing belt and water pump.
A resistor that controls the speed changes on the automatic transmission models might go off (not before the check engine light lit up) or a cylinder misfire would prompt the check engine light (this has happened twice on all this time). Either way, they are simple repairs, check-ups. Other than, nothing else. This thing will go for another quarter of a million miles if needed. Love it!"
"I now have right at 120,000 miles on my Civic EX and she still runs perfectly. I've had the car for over 5 years now. I've had no problems with it whatsoever, have only had to do regular maintenance, oil changes, etc on it. The car gets EXCELLENT gas mileage. I can go a long way on a tank of gas, it's amazing and something I'm very greatful for as gas prices rise. I would recommend this car to anyone. It's safe, comfortable and affordable."
"I bought this car with 5 miles on it. I drove it back and forth all through college and pharmacy school. I moved out of town in 2007 (about 200 miles away) and continue to drive back and forth all the time. I now have almost 120,000 miles on it and with the 4th kid on the way, my husband is finally making me sell it to get something bigger. I have never had any issues with this car. It has been wonderful, reliable, comfortable, and an all around great car."
Cons: "Windshield defrost engages the AC automatically."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Almost 16 years old and still runs better than many cars half its age! Over the years, I haven't seen a drop in mileage efficiency or power. On the highway I get 39-40 mpg. The only major item I did was the timing belt replacement at 110,000 miles. I will really miss this car when the time comes that I have to replace it, maybe after 5 more years!"
