Just PLAIN perfect!
Steering rack (recall) at 40000K.
Power steering pulley (recall) at 45000K.
Mechanically perfect vehicle.
Has stood up very well to pretty hard usage (4 kids under 14).
Tried 2 domestic compacts before the Civic, and the Civic was in a different galaxy as far as fit & finish, engine response and handling.
Interior is pretty plain, and it feels like I'm sitting on a bus seat.
Not a great amount of fun or excitement, but the car does its job very well; "competent"
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
