Well, the latest scores from the NHTSA weren't very good http://www.insideline.com/honda/civi...rash-test.html















Only 2 stars from side crash testing. Hopefully the 2012 model would test better.















You can get more info from this site http://www.safercar.gov/

Yes, they are safe.































The IIHS crash tests are more thorough that the NHTSA tests and they are done by the companies who actually have to pay the insurance claims (the majority of which is personal injury). The 2006 and up Civic got good ratings in frontal offset (which NHTSA doesn't do), side impact, roof strength, and rear crash/head restraint tests.
