Hey all, I'm new to the forum and I'm ready to buy a LX probably with or maybe without the Honda Sensing. I think Sensing will be helpful for the new driver in my house.

Reviews seem pretty good overall and Ive always wanted a new(!) Civic so I think its time to pull the trigger.

I'd appreciate it if you'd be able to give me some feedback. The idea is to keep this car for a long time, like 8 to ten years.

Anyway, I'm hoping to hear from some owners and your experiences. What were you looking for when you bought your car? Are you happy with it? Did it exceed your expectations? What don't you like?

I'm also considering a Corolla but I'm not sure that I ever want to be a Corolla driver.

I was not actually in the market for a Civic, but I was at a Honda dealer, and I saw a new Civic and I had to drive it. Once I drove it I was in love with it.
I got the Civic Touring, I love all the accessories and options the car has, it has far exceeded my expectations. I spend a lot of time in my car, about 100 miles a day, so I like comfort and all the options I can get. The Touring model definitely has options that cars costing thousands more do not have. Its very comfortable to drive, gets great gas mileage, very stylish looking. I can definitely see myself keeping this car for a long time. You definitely get a LOT of car for your money with the Civic!!
I'd go with the Civic, its light years ahead of a Corolla!

Both Toyota and Honda build very reliable cars so either one will last you 8-10 years if you bring it in for regular maintenance and just take care of it like any other car. IMO, the Civic looks better than the Corolla and it has a great list of standard features depending on the trim.

I would invest in the Honda sensing. You may never need it, but if you do, you'll be very happy its there.

True. I think that you have to consider the probability of an event happening where the product would be useful though. Consider insurance. Let's say that there is home insurance that will pay you if your home is destroyed by a tornado. If you live in a tornado prone area, its worth picking up since if it does happen, at least then you'll have it. if you live in a place that rarely or never gets tornadoes, having it really doesn't have the same value to you because the probability of it one day being useful is so low.

Personally, I would step up one trim level to the EX. It's worth having the larger screen, nicer dash, better sound and alloy wheels. I am willing to bet you will be happy you did.
