Thank you, Mr.McCausland, for the nice words about the Civic. I bought a new Civic EX sedan April 24. While it doesn't handle as sharply as the Fit I drove the same day (mom bought it instead!), it was an improvement on my 09 Malibu trade-in. In fact,it was superior. The air conditioning was ice cold within 5 minutes, a feat the Malibu failed during the 2012 summer's miserable 108 temps. The seats are comfortable and nicely finished. The visibility all around is outstanding, also a Malibu sore point. The gas mileage from Oklahoma to Kansas was 41.8, exceeding the EPA rating and the Malibu's best of 31.9. The Malibu also had an oil leak, which my local dealer couldn't pinpoint.Yes, the Civic dash is hard & odd. But it doesn't have the balky transmission and My Ford touch so many have complained about. The Cruze driven at last year's KC car show didn't drive as well & wasn't as comfortable.Yes, the Civic is not like some of its competition. Given high gas prices,it's still a great value & a fine car.

why alot of vitriol aimed at this car mr. McCauslandlet me tell you!this car does nothing spectacular not the best at nothing. The civic SI has always been 100hp per liter this one dosen't have that!(1st big mistake) also it looks like it's 4wd and why do we have to spend more money to get bigger tires their still narrow as hellshould have come with 225/45/17 standard and car lowered from honda (2nd mistake)last but not least this car should look mean, an aggressive which it dont and its way to soft so there you have it, the 2012 civic si gets it ass ticked buy the compentition again!SAD WHAT HONDA HAS BECOMENONCOMPEITIVE, ITS NOT THE BENCHMARK ITS USE TO BE!
