Default Should I purchase a 2013 Honda Civic?

Hello! I am 18 years old and trying to buy a new affordable car that is good on gas and last a long time, while also having a nice look to it. Is the Honda Civic 2013 a good option for me? I'll be using it for school and work and I drive for about an hour and a half every day.

Yes I can definitely afford it! It's been a debate between the civic and the hyundai elantra for me.

Yes honda civics are very reliable, last long, and great on gas, and parts are cheap and they are also cheap to repair. I say go for it.

You can't go wrong with buying the Honda. They last nearly a lifetime, they're quite reliable, and the gas mileage is ridiculously high. Hyundais, I wouldn't go for. They do have a long history of breakdowns and many other reported mechanical issues.

The Civic has just been redesigned to address some of the quibbles customers had with the 2012 model, but Civics have a reliability reputation that's hard to argue with, so I'd say it's a safe bet. Just remember to follow the maintenance schedule in the user's manual and drive it responsibly, and you'll have no problem keeping it in good shape for as long as you want.

I'd personally recommend test-driving a Chevrolet Cruze and Ford Focus as well, but no one will be angry with you (except maybe a few trolls on this web board) for saying, "You know, I like the Civic, it fits my needs and lifestyle, I'm going to buy it."

I like the Elantra. I think it's a good little car but it's not near as refined as the Civic. (They raised the prices but the materials quality is still lacking.)
