2006 Honda Civic ex 1.8 from North America
You cannot go wrong with a Civic
Nothing has gone wrong, still very new.
Great car, back seat has lots of room for my four year old twins. I do notice that the car is somewhat unstable on those bridge grates, but rides well in all other respects.
Called the dealership on the repair schedule. In a nutshell, change all fluids every 30,000, no timing belt service as in the past.
Have yet to run the car hard, still too new. Mileage has been in the mid 30s and expect this to get a little better.
Love the look of the rear of the car, looks like a BMW.
Car is black with ivory interior. I worry about keeping the inside clean with the kids, but what the heck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I can't believe you said it looks like a BMW... obviously you have no idea what a bmw is never-mind what one looks like. And as an owner of an 06 LX coupe I can confidently say that yes you CAN go wrong with a civic.
As an owner of an Accord I can tell you that you can't go wrong with an Accord.
First of all, nothing Honda makes looks remotely like a BMW (which is not all that great-looking anyway) and YES, you MOST DEFINITELY can go wrong with a Civic. Hopefully you'll have better luck with yours than my experience has been. The one Civic in our household started self-destructing at 40,000 miles (CV joints went out) and TOTALLY disintegrated at 90,000 and was sold as scrap.
"Love the look of the rear of the car, looks like a BMW."
Yes, that is exactly why I am no longer impressed by BMW. It is precisely because they look like just another Honda econobox! Apparently the style and luxury are gone, and are no longer something to aspire to.
Why I dislike the current BMW designs, to say they are looking like econoboxes is simply wrong. BMW design chief Chris Bangle has set a design language that virtually EVERY car maker is following one way or another. Even the mass market Camry has a trunk similar to the BMW 5 and 7 series.
Even the Land Rovers are owned by Ford!
