Summary:

Supercalifragilistic expeolodocious!!!

Faults:

Absolutely nothing, and nothing will go wrong it's a Honda!!!

General Comments:

Honda has done it again. This is the third civic I have owned and have never once been disappointed. The new design is unbelievable. The layout of all the controls is perfect. It is very roomy and very plush. The dash is so cool. Just above the steering wheel sits a beautiful blue digital speedometer, and through the steering wheel is an awesome tach. It looks and feels like riding in a spaceship. It handles with amazing accuracy and with 140 hp it gets along just fine. 80 on the highway feels like nothing. This car in its class blows everything out of the water. Just test drive one and you will be hooked.

If the reviewer gets that excited about a Honda Civic, imagine how he/she would feel if he/she drove a Lexus, Audi, BMW or Saab!!!

I thought I was reading a Jaguar review or something!

Jaguars are not necessarily built that well.

Funny how a Civic's build quality rivals most Cadillacs.

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with the car.

General Comments:

This is an excellent car for the money. It is quiet, has a comfortable ride yet drives like a sports car. On a recent 400 mile trip I averaged 38.9 miles per gallon. The front seats have a lot of room. On the expressway at 75 MPH the engine rotates at only 2200 rpms. Great brakes! Love the windshield wipers. Front window is huge and on the expressway the rain just slides right off it without using the windshield wipers. I purchased this car for my son and like it so much I ordered a 2007 for one of our company cars.

Summary:

Excellent car, very reliable, a great car

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with this car yet, it is solid, runs great and it's a Honda!

General Comments:

I love my Honda Civic EX - great little car. I should have bought a Honda last time, but I opted for the 0% Financing offered by GM. Well I learned my lesson.

The car is agile, quick and great on gas.

Lots of extras, great stereo, interior. I am having difficulty find anything wrong with the car.

OK, maybe the price, but you get what you pay for, other than that I love the two tier dash board.

Summary:

Spoils the compact car owner

Faults:

There is a slight clunking noise coming from the front right suspension.

General Comments:

I have had this car for 3 weeks; it is black and has the Premium Package. Due to the high taxes from the Turkish government, they have produced a 1.6 liter version of the 1.8 being sold abroad. The car has 125 hp which is the most in its class (in Turkey). It has a 5 speed automatic which is not available in any other cars in its class. The size and interior space of the car is larger then its competitors. The interior design is awesome, gas mileage is good and it is cheaper then its competitors. Can't go wrong with this car.

I especially like the paddle shift option on the automatic. It lets you shift as if you were in a Formula 1 car from the steering wheel. The engine loves to rev and the on-ramp is quite fun through 1st and 2nd gear.

The interior is ivory and looks like it will get dirty really fast. The 16 inch rims are nice, but the 17 inch option was not available. I did not purchase the sunroof option because it was not a very innovative sunroof compared to what is out in the market (by Renault and Fiat)

I wouldn't trade this car for any of its competitors, but only for a 2.0 Liter I-VTEC if taxes weren't so outrageous here.
