2015 Civic EX Coupe; 5-speed manual, red
January 22, 2019
It's styling is tons more desirable than the 2016 and newer models which replaced it. The interior front area is cozy, yet comfortable, even for longer than average trips, while the rear really is for lesser height-endowed passengers. The rear storage area, which used to be called a 'trunk', still has room for a full-sized spare tire, though it does raise the floor of the area a bit. As for driving, it is comfortable for both short and long term episodes. I have no negative things to say about handling which leaves a feeling of the car remaining reasonably capable and predictable if accident avoidance should ever be necessary. At night the right outside mirror's "lane watch" input which appears as a very bright and grainy picture on the infotainment head unit's screen, can be turned off with a button on the tip of the turn signal stalk. The only warranty issue which needed addressing was when, after one year of usage, the infotainment unit went nuts, randomly, quickly, and unendingly switching between any stations it could pick up. The replacement unit has been much more dependable. Another curious thing about this EX Coupe concerns the infotainment unit, which is a 7-speaker (with an alleged "sub woofer") unit. For some reason it is not near as clear as the lesser rated six-speaker factory unit in our 2014 EX Sedan. Still, quibbles aside, this is still a car I like a lot, and I hope it can park in our garage for many years to come.
