Ignore the brand name. This car is not worth it
Everything imaginable. Struts went out twice in 40k miles, radiator shattered like glass, alternator, 2 sets of batteries, CV joints, air conditioning compressor, stereo, back speakers, distributor cap.
Honda is known for reliability. Mine was purchased late in its life with the expectation it would make it to 200k miles.
Mine has thousands in repair costs almost instantly at 119k that costs more than the worth of the vehicle. THe dealership lied to me and was dishonest about terms of the agreement when purchasing the vehicle.
I blew almost $4000 in repairs and after the distributor blew into a million pieces I sold it for $100 at 170k miles and never want to see it again.
I have seen American cars last longer than 170k miles with less maintance fees.
The car has trouble shifting gears when its cold out and has a terrible cheap plastic looking dashboard. Its not nearly as nice as the newer civics.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
