just got mine its a civic coup with a 6speed been driving with econo mode on. so far getting 38 mpg. I have driven spirited a time or two it has less then 200 miles on it. love the 2.0L 6 speed trans shifts so smooth. no infotainment issues as of yet. this is my first civic my room mate had a 08 but I hated it lol, I traded in a 2011 Ridgeline for this car and I loved the ridgeline it was so reliable and low cost except the fuel mileage. Hope this one is just as reliable, but with much better MPG also wanna customize it a little.
What did you hate about it?

it was slow and road rough. it was a 4 door and looked nice but was gutless up here in the mountains. also I did not like the automatic trans it had. it was a maroon with tan interior the color was nice and styling was fine but it lacked power and it had electric issues and just over all was just not a good car.

No doubt your Honda will be just a reliable. They're generally built like tanks and meant to last a long time without many major problems. Honda was named the most reliable used car manufacturer by What Car? and Warranty Direct last year. That means they'll last well after the first owner.

Miles

Have about 1800 miles on my Touring. Bought it May 2nd. Best two mpg so far was 51.6 and 50 on two long trips with a lot of mountains. Very pleased so far!

Just cleared 7K on my LX. Only had it since mid-April but it does have a 3K road trip under it's belt. VERY comfortable car to do long distance tripping in AND phenomenal MPG. The only problem I've had is it sometimes falters/hesitates when I get back in the gas quickly upon rapid deceleration off the freeway. I'm planning on having the dealer check it out next week. The passenger sun visor "fell" out a couple of weeks after I got it but, other than that it's been great. As for power and acceleration, if you get run over in this car, you just weren't paying attention. It is NOT slow.I average 160+ a day comutting.

Don't worry

Mine is finally asking for her first oil change at 7800 miles. My mpgs have gone down a little in the last month, wonder if they'll go back up after she's got clean oil on board?
You're probably just getting comfortable with it. New car even with breaking in a little dirty oil won't affect your MPG that much.:)

I have close to 8,300 since Jan 2016. Funny thing is I have no idea how I accumulated so many miles. I have a second car which refuses to die (I love it). It is a 2004 Prius with 263,000 miles. I drive that on weekdays and the Civic on weekends.

Come on everyone. Let's see those miles. Wife and I are planning to get the Sport Hatchback next year, so I should be updating soon too ;)
