Hi Everyone,
I'm just checking in here and figure I'll be doing a lot of reading here. I have been reading a lot and want to post a little too. Having car problems and poor gas mileage issues I decided to go with a small fuel efficient car. Not my normal type of car but I'm loving it so far. Always had Suv type vehicles and then got a large used pick up for towing my sailboat and find a result of 10.5 miles/gallon around home. Yikes. I followed the blog online of the courier who put a million miles on his Civic. Well, I do about 12k a year and guessed a Civic would be fine. I am over 50 and choose the Lx for a low price and to be easier to work on. This car is my second new car and never felt so strong for any other vehicle ever. The 2.0/Cvt logs highway mileage over 2 road trips around 41 mpg! An easy 34mpg around my home. I'll save $1500 in gas over the pickup. She just turned 6k miles since June 25th. I live in eastern Pa and have traveled to mid Ohio - Lake Erie to go sailing and to the Hudson River Ny. I leased this Civic and find I want to drive it more than I should. 12k is the limit per year on the lease so I'm finding I will have to hold myself back. I've been putting money in the bank each month for me to buy the car at the end of the lease. I tend to get attached! Off to the auto store I went and came home with a bag of detailing wax towels and car wash soap! (never did this before). I do have a garage and don't drive it in the snow but spend a lot of time cleaning and detailing it. Great car and I have been loving this 10th gen site! I'll see you around I'm sure!

Hi Jojo, I'm 50 and grew up on Hondas starting in the late 80's and into the 90's when they were the hot ticket. Honda seems to have lost their way when it comes to enthusiasts over the past couple decades in their mainstream vehicles. For me, the 2016 Civic is a return to those glory days. You picked a good time, and a good car. Enjoy!
