BWC High-Mileage Review

There She Is, The Honda Civic...

If high mileage cars competed in the ‘Miss America’ pageant instead of young women, the Honda Civic would win ‘Miss Congeniality’. We say this not because the Civic doesn’t look good in a bathing suit (It doesn’t. It’s a car.), or because it doesn’t wish for world peace. We say this because the Civic doesn’t have the sexy high-tech appeal the hybrids have, but it’s a great car and everyone likes it.

Though the Civic is quite congenial (like BWC’s members), it is not flawless (unlike BWC’s members). Interestingly, though, most of the negative feedback we’ve seen on the Civic is somewhat general (lack of storage, power, etc.). The lack of specific complaints (drink holder blocks gear shift, car explodes if it slows below 50 mph, etc.) would seem to indicate that the engineers at Honda have done a good job over the years of eliminating design flaws. It can be argued that these more general complaints stem from the fact that the drivers are critiquing a fuel-efficient compact car (which normally wouldn’t have a lot of storage or power).

This review is long, like our memory here at BWC (That’s right, we haven’t forgotten what you did to us in second grade, Paul Ribbing of Reno, NV!). If you want to cut directly to the sections that interest you most, we won’t hold it against you (Unlike our grudge with a certain guy from Reno).
