956 Chevy Truck
The Honda Civic was the Little Compact Car Darling of the 70s and 80s until competition started to ramp up in the form of Toyota's, Mazda's and a wide variety of Hyundai's and Fords !! The Civic first came on the scene in 1973. It was economical, rated high for safety and attracted a a great deal of frugally minded consumers. Competition isn't always bad; it kept Honda refining and resculpting the Civic over all these years.
There are four different types of transmission packages, as well: CVT, 6 speed manual, 5 speed automatic, or the 5 speed manual. The 1.5 L 4 cylinder hybrid gets a combined 45 mpg, whereas their unique natural gas engine gets a combined 31 mpg. The biggest benefits to the natural gas engine is its fuel is a lot less expensive and the crash tests done on the natural gas vehicles prove that they are a lot more resistant to crash - explosions/fires.
The trim levels on the Civic are rather exhaustive, but there are some honorable mentions on the aforementioned hybrids and natural gas models. Both models feature a 7" touch screen command console and the Honda Link syncing program. They both sport expanded view drivers' mirrors and Lane Watch display to enhance driving safety. They both have unique offerings as well. The hybrid has smart entry with push button start and a CVT transmission. The Natural Gas model comes in a leather trim model that has heated seats, heated side mirrors and several interior upgrades with a 5 speed automatic transmission.
Most of the Civic models fall in a $18 - $30,000 price point.
Things that set the Civic apart is its fuel economy - all models have combined mpgs of between 29 - 45 mpg, they scored high on all the government crash tests and they were built with very roomy interiors for such small cars!
If you fall into the category of drivers who allow a windshield reminder sticker to dictate when they get an oil change, current competence recommends you drop that habit. Conversely, it is advised you follow the automobile maker's advised service intervals. For those driving modern cars, it is advised that you rely upon the car's oil life monitoring system to notify you when it is time for a change.
