Ford Mustang 5 Speed
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 plethora of Hyundai's and Fords !! The Civic first came on the scene in 1973. It was economical, rated high for safety and attracted a bunch of frugally minded consumers. Competition isn't always bad; it kept Honda refining and resculpting the Civic over all these years.
The trim levels on the Civic are quite 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 many interior upgrades with a 5 speed automatic transmission.
Most of the Civic models fall in a $18 - $30,000 price point.
The many 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!
The Civics do have some pitfalls. While the interior is roomy, the form fitting front seats are somewhat tight for bigger customers. The command console is quite cluttered and complicated to use. The steering has been known to be a little stiff and the cabin has a bunch of road noise, as well.
1. Cleaning the interior and exterior. Your car can be a reflection of you. If you are messy, it will reflect on your car. If you decide to own one, make sure you take full responsibility of its cleanliness, not just the exterior but the interior parts too. Remember, others may get the chance to see it too. Also, not cleaning your car will only attract dirt and grime into it that when left for a long time can eventually cause a huge damage on your car. There are a bunch of car cleaners in the market so it should not be an excuse for not cleaning your car.
