Long-Term Logbook, April 2012: Honda Civic
CG Observed Miles: 7,319 miles
CG Observed Fuel Economy: 33 mpg
John Biel: Consistently high fuel mileage, which the Civic delivers, sometimes has to be balanced with the need for zippy performance, which is less obvious in certain situations.
Over the course of the year, our editors drive approximately 200 new cars and trucks. Most vehicles are evaluated over a two-week period; some are evaluated for six to 12 months. The vehicles we drive for this extended period of time are called Long-Term Testers.
Rick Cotta: Civic remains a top pick in the compact class, though some of its “cast-in-stone” feature availability may leave some people scratching their heads–and looking elsewhere. But if one of the available trim levels offers what you want at a competitive price, you really can’t go wrong with the Civic.
Dave Hall: The Civic is a great point-a-to-point-b appliance, but it has some heart too. It’s entertaining to drive, has enough power to exhibit authority in daily driving, and will carry you, a couple friends, and your stuff in relative comfort. Overall, it’s a good road trip car.
