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.
Pros: sporty looking
Cons: did not have electic seatssuper gas milage looks awsome and has a good smooth ride and is very comfortable
Pros: Gas mileage
Cons: Front blind spotsIt's a beautiful shape, and it has a good acceleration as compared to the Toyota of the same class. I like the digital speedometer and the automatic windows, especially since the driver's window can raise up with one press of the button (no need to hold it down). My model is the LX model. The only negative things are the blind spots on the front windshield where the side airbags deploy. It's hard to see any oncoming cars when you're going around a curve. Also, the gas mileage is great. My car averages about 30 mpg, but I have collected all mileages since I purchased it. My highest mpg was 41 and my lowest was 20, but these haven't happened often.
A wonderful vehicle - good bang for the buck
Pros: plug in for MP3 player
Cons: wipersI bought this car for the engine, and it has not disappointed me. Even in poor conditions my gas mileage never drops below 21 mi/gal. On the highway I have made 40 mi/gal. My one complaint about this car is that the windshield wipers work in their own way. At times I cannot turn them off. Other times the intermittent wipers get stuck at regular speed. I have had the dealer look at this, but their diagnostics show no problem. They have asked me to come in when the problem occurs, but as a working single parent that is not feasible. I had the rear windows tinted as the sun reflections impeded my view out the back without it. It is worth noting that I had to replace the original tires at 25,000 miles. Honda would do well to develop a hatchback version of this car. My ideal would be a Civic engine in a Fit style vehicle.
