best car ever
Pros: the MPG
Cons: nothingHappy and would buy it again
Good Transportation Car
Pros: Radio with Sat. option
Cons: Freeway onramp powerGood solid car for everyday use. Great gas mileage. Nice inside and out. Not to loud in passenger area.
Same old stabilitty from Honda
Pros: the arrangement of the front cabin to provide plenty of room and visibility
Cons: that it has drum rear brakesI just bought this vehicle, but so far, so good--responsive, tight handling, good gas mileage in mixed driving (34 mpg), comfortable to drive, and has the stable presence of a larger car, though it is really a compact. It does not handle as sporty as my old VW golf, but hopefully will be more dependable, and continue to provide better gas mileage. Acceleration is slightly sluggish around 35-45 mph, and again at about 55 mph, but it hums along fine once you've reached your intended speed.
Unbeleivable poor audio
Pros: Bigger Cabin size & dash board low position
Cons: Audio qualityI've been drivng my Civics since 1986 and always change with newer models when they came out. This time I bought the 2010 Civic LX. To my extreme disappointment, the audio quality is sooo bad. Front speakers are louder the rear ones. And if adjust the fader to rear only, there's no bass power at all, If I set it on center, I get a sound like they're coming out of a can. Much much worse than what available in Corolla LE (and I thought Civic is always a better car than Corolla). Totally embarrassing decision from Honda to choose such poor radio/speakers to save money.
2003 Honda Civic LS
Pros: Smooth 5 speed
Cons: Interior plastic not too classyGreat fuel efficiency, reliability and handing. Perfect commuter car.
great commuter car with good performance
Pros: Six speed manual
Cons: Car could use more torque at lower RPMs2010 Honda Civic Si - I bought this car for commuting, but I wanted a car with a little zip. VTEC kicks in at 6200 - excellent 6 speed shifter and I still get 29 mpg. The car is comfortable, handles well and is the best looking small sedan on the market. The front seats are very supportive, the sound system is good and the steering wheel is a great size and has a great feel - all the controls are simple to use - although the navigation system is angled back and a little out of reach, but it works very well. The rest of the cockpit is ergonomically perfect (I'm about 5'10). I've owned about 15 Honda/Acura products and I've loved them all.
