Honda Civic

Having been around for over four decades, the Honda Civic is a mainstay of the compact and subcompact market, still going from strength to strength.

While it may not have in the past boasted sales numbers to match its rivals (such as the Ford Focus and VW Golf), the Honda Civic is now thought of as one of the most reliable and affordable cars on the market. Largely down to a constant reputation of reliability and good scores among customer satisfaction surveys, the Honda Civic continues to evolve as a car and gain popularity with buyers.

Why buy a Civic? Back to top

Honda Civics are some of the most reliable cars on the market.

A marker for well-built, reliable cars (in 2011 the manufacturers were named the Which Car? most reliable car brand), the Honda name is one well worth looking out for when shopping for a used car. With the Honda Civic the reliability is coupled with a car made to run smoothly and efficiently, and so is a good all-rounder in the compact and subcompact market.

A stand out feature is undoubtedly the Civic’s eye catching design, which is not only sleek and modern, but also a trendsetter in the market — a number or cars in the same class have followed on where the Civic started, using a similar curved bonnet and split rear window. The most recent models, while not being radically redesigned in terms of looks, have been designed with aerodynamics and efficiency in mind.

Inside, the design of the most recent models has found critics finding fault with a jumbled dashboard and limited head room, but the Civic’s boot and leg space is generally thought to be adequate, if not excellent. This makes it an ideal choice for families and those looking to fit in five people and still have ample storage room.

Civics are some of the most fuel efficient on the market, generally offering miles per gallon returns in the mid 40s for petrol engines. The universally lauded 1.6 diesel however, is noted for its efficiency, offering 75mpg and CO2 emissions of 94g/km, which means that it is road tax exempt.

The 1.6 diesel has also been praised for its drive, which is widely thought to offer something a bit more lively than the rest of the range. Overall however, Civics are comfortable and reliable, if not always thrilling. The 1.4 petrol engine is thought to be the best entry-level car of the bunch, offering good all round specifications, including the six-speed manual gearbox that comes as standard on the full range.

Honda Civics have been awarded the maximum five stars from Euro NCAP, and all come with ESP and anti-lock brakes with electronic brake force distribution. The EX GT trim however, features a Collision Mitigation Brake System, an automatic braking system which uses radar to detect imminent collisions.

Here’s a brief history of the Honda Civic, stretching right back to the first one, launched in 1972.

What should I look for when buying a Civic? Back to top

Check the exterior for any noticeable rust or slack repair work. Keep an eye out for any leaks or noticeable errors. Its also worth gently pushing down on the bumper to check the struts — the more it bounces the worse condition the struts are in.

Check under the bonnet. Particularly at the base of the timing belt cover for any leakage (which would indicate a leaking water pump), and under the engine, where the transmission meets the block (which would mean a faulty main seal).

Once inside, check the electrics and dashboard warning lights — the headlight, the air conditioning and any radio and electric windows. A problem on any of these features, despite how minor, could be a sign of something more major.

Some previous owners have mentioned a problem with driver’s door handles, so double check this to make sure it is working properly and doesn’t stick.

Older generation Civics may suffer from frazzled front tyres, so make sure you get an up close look. Newer models, with ESP and traction control, tend not to suffer from this.

Civics, as are all Hondas, are very well-put together, reliable cars, and so if there is a problem it would likely to be a major, obvious one. With just a bit of common sense you’ll be able to find a quality car that will serve you for many years to come.
