Default Is Honda civic safe to drive even without the stability control system?

I'm thinking of getting myself a used Honda Civic 2006 or 2007, and both models don't have the stability control system. Is it still safe for a new driver like me to drive that model?!

People have driven for decades with out stability control. I will bet you have ridden and driven cars without stability control,. Cumbersome big SUVs would be better with stability control, And I suppose your civic would be safer with it than without it, but this is a pretty minor thing to worry about.

You will be alright without stability control. As you start to drive you will find out that it is a luxury that do not really need. It is nice to have, but you will become dependent on it which you don't want to do. Don't worry you will be fine and Honda's are very safe trust me.

No, all new drivers without it are dangerous and wildly out of control going way back to like 1902.

i wouldn't worry about it all it does is cause your car to not spin out but if you drive slow when it is slick out then you should be fine just make sure that you have good tires on it
