2012 Honda Civic LX 1.7 from North America
Great economy car
Nothing as of now. 30,000 miles.
I purchased this Civic, brand new straight off the lot. I was really looking for an economic car that would take a beating, as I drive a lot for work. Particularly, one that could take on a lot of highway and city driving.
It drives very well, easy to maneuver, great road feedback, and accelerates very well and can be quite fast - I have a manual transmission. I've redlined it multiple times and it takes it like a champ. I love taking off fast from the red light and hearing the nice roar of the engine as it hits 4,000 RPM.
I feel like I put a lot of strain on this car, and that it loves me for it. As of now there's nothing wrong with the car (30K miles). No new tires, no new brakes, nothing except the routine oil changes and tire rotations.
I am very impressed with the car, as I put it through a daily grind of stop and go, fast accelerations, high RPM and lots of miles.
It still feels and drives like new, and the design looks very classic. I wash it every week, and it looks like I just got it off the dealer.
Surprisingly it also fits 5 large adults well. Though they might not like it.
It's not comfortable for long trips, and can be noisy while on the highway for long periods of time. But this is a city car - and I am OK with that. The warning for low tire pressure always appears any time the temperature drops, and my tires still look the same.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It is not possible to visually evaluate a tire pressure. A tire with almost no pressure will look just like a tire inflated at normal pressure. It is absolutely essential to purchase a tire manometer for $5 (I recommend the dial type ones, easier to use). Inflating a tire without a manometer will surely result in an overinflated tire that can explode while driving.

Your Honda is trying to save you; in cold weather your tire pressure drops, so read up on tire care and save some money. Under inflated tires wear incorrectly and are deadly.
