Advise do not buy Honda turbo.

The 1.5 turbo had oil dilution. Dealers and Honda live in some denial. Had the AC controller and software update and that did not help. When it broke down the first time was in summer on interstate and going hard and hot multi hours. Honda says this only happens in the cold. Not true.

Best car I have ever owned.

Bought this as a commuter. I get way about the EPA estimate for MPG. I average 45mpg across a tank of gas. I have the 2.0L model. So easy to do maintenance on and just works. I bought it as a lease turn-in when it was 3 years old and had 34k miles on it. I have 138k on the odometer now. In that entire time, I have replaced a single item that was not part of regular maintenance - some fuel sensor that the dealer replaced because of a light on the dash and was around $150 to diagnose and fix. Otherwise just the basic stuff - oil, brakes, spark plugs, wipers, etc. There has been one common fault that if you look at these reviews long enough you will see. An A/C problem was common on this generation. There is a factory recall on it. Both mine, and my brothers 2017 model had it done at no charge. Other than that my only grips on this car are minor crap like a select few button placement choices or the oddness that the driver can't operate all windows with the window lock engaged - usually that is bypassed only for the driver. So shy of some very small things, I would buy another one of these in a heartbeat.

Honda is a head ache in A/C

The A/C part is horrible in that it keeps breaking down and leaking that I have to change the condenser every two years, with a hefty price.I am not going to buy any more honda in the future; I will switch to Toyota.

Favorite car before my new 2021 Honda Civic Sport

This car was fun, got great gas mileage and was a sporty looking car without spending tons of $$ I liked it so much I bought a 2021 Civic Sport

Owned the LX coupe for a year now

I picked this Civic coupe LX up last March with 30k miles and have absolutely loved it. I just wanted the base model with the 2.0 because it’s one of Honda’s best engines and I certainly don’t need all the bells and whistles. It took a month or so get used to the CVT transmission, but eventually found the sweet spots and really never need to use sport mode because it’s unnecessary. It works, but I’m not Jeff Gordon. Pretty nimble in traffic on both the city and freeways and has ample acceleration especially at highway. Steering is tight like a sport coupe should be. The interior is decent sized and basically designed. I’m 6’1” and have plenty of room, even with someone in back. The rear seats are deep, but the headroom is an issue for anyone over 6’. I commute 50 miles back and forth from work, mostly on the freeway and get about 40-41 MPG at 70-75MPH Sometimes I’ll put non-ethanol 88 gas in and it will get 42-44. AMAZING! No mechanical problems, runs like a champ. I love this car so much. The tail light configuration was the closer for me. Sharp.
