Default Is the Honda Civic a good car?

I'm considering buying the Honda Civic LX 2009, and it would be my first car. I didn't drive it, but I rode it in when my dad did. I thought the ride was smooth and quiet, but I've been reading reviews online. Many people said that Honda's overrated, that the driver seat has bad blind spots, the heating controls are bad, etc. I understand that it's a matter of personal preference, but I was wondering what you know about the Honda Civic? thanks

it is a great car in reliability and gas mileage. they have a nice ride and are comfy and quite. but techno creep doesnt know anything about hondas and knows nothing except them looking cheap, my advice would be to buy a higher grade civic like an ex or si, the lx along with dx is the lowest grade















ex for niceness and vtec engine and gas mileage















si for sportyness and dual overhead camshaft vtec















lx for family and gas mileage















a bonus is honda parts arent expensive

The civic is a very nice every day driver kind of car. True it's not sporty or really exceptional in any specific thing, but you won't regret getting it, unless of course you're looking for a really fun to drive car! Not to mention the fact that honda engines last for a REALLY long time.

I love my Civic. I have a 2003 Civic EX (Now 8 years old) and have not had a single problem with it. The ride is comfortable, it handles nicely, high safety ratings, great gas mileage, comfortable, and reliable. LIke I said, 8 years and no issues. I'm planning to run this thing into the ground, so I'll probably have it another 8 years. lol. I say go for it! If you have any further civic questions, check out the link in my sources. I've been a member since 2003 (when I bought my car) and I go there whenever I have questions (or just want to read up and learn more). Take care!

Civics (and Accords too) are great first cars. Hondas can last for years and years as long as they're properly maintained. Did you sit in the drivers seat at all? I recommend do thing that. You don't have to drive it around just yet, but sit in it and make sure you can adjust the mirrors to your liking, play with the knobs for heat/air and radio. Just see if it's a good fit for you.































My first car was a really old Buick, and my next two were both Hondas. I've pretty much fallen in love with them!
