Having a passion for cars, my husband keeps changing his cars every once in a while. Last time when he had a "Change Attack", he started looking for a car with all new gadgets and looks.
With such a long range of vehicles available in market, he first narrowed down his search to a brand that has a convincing track record, is reliable, holds a good resale value, is not too expensive, and performs like a champion. His requirements brought a wide range of compact car manufacturers down to just 3. i.e. Honda, Toyota, and Nissan.
He ended up buying a Honda Civic once again. The new Civic has the most appealing looks of them all. The car is equipped with a 1.8 v-Tec engine and a swift 5-speed automatic transmission that produces about 140 hp, and reaches 0-60 mph in swift 8.5 sec.
Its features include Air Conditioning, Tinted Windows, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Door Locks, Power Mirrors, Cruise Control, Clock, Tachometer, Telescoping Steering Wheel, Steering Wheel Radio Controls, Sunroof, Moon-roof, Driver Airbag, Passenger Airbag, Side Airbags, Keyless Entry, Security System, ABS Brakes, Rear Defogger, Intermittent Wipers, AM-FM, CD Player, Anti-Theft system, Premium Sound System, Alloy Wheels, Carpeted Floor Mats, Leather Interior Surface, Leather Steering Wheel, Tilt Steering Wheel, Navigation System, Carbon Fiber Trim, Arm Rest, Cup Holders, Remote Fuel Door, Remote Trunk Lid, both driver and passenger vanity Mirrors, Center Console, Side Moldings, Child Proof Door Locks, Daytime Running Lights, Side Curtain Airbags, Both front and rear seat belts with front adjustable seat belt anchors, Tire Pressure Monitor, 12v Power Outlet..
The handling of new Civic is the best in its class. It has a 60/40 front/rear weight distribution which makes it very good in road handling. The interior offers 39.0 inch head room and 42.0 inch leg room that can accommodate even a larger person comfortably.
My husband paid $15000.00 for a slightly used 2008 model with just 9000 miles on it. The car is superb for the price. We have driven some 8000 miles ever since we have bought it, so far it has been giving us about 26 miles to a gallon in city and 35 miles on highways.
It is an excellent performer and extremely high value for money. I definitely recommend it to everyone that is looking for a performance car for less.
