Bought this from a Honda dealership and to be honest it’s the worst car I’ve ever driven. It sounds more like a hairdryer with that constant whirring noise and a constant humming noise. The gear shifts are never clean. The paintwork is terrible.

My third Civic, this one followed a 1600cc diesel tourer and the 1500cc Sport. The best car I've owned in over 50 years motoring! Looks good, feels good, comfortable and not too bad on fuel for the performance. Superb dealer service. Just had new set of tyres at 11,000 miles and told that was good as unusual to get over 10k ... but they are soft Continental 20" rubber and expensive - but what the 'eck, too much fun driving the car.

The figures say it all - just need to keep eyes wide open for those who try and catch you out!
Running Cost
Normal tax rate £145, does 30mph - bit more on long journeys, just replaced tyres after 11k, at cost of over £800 ... insurance just renewed at £300.
