Lemon Car. Honda have lost the plot.
This car is honestly the worst car I have ever driven. Many electrical issues from factory that Honda themselves have no idea how to fix. (Eg.. headlights dim randomly, alternator keeps dying (3 replaced in 200,000kms)
CVT died just after the warranty expired which is an $8000 replacement
Cars headunit from factory stopped working at 200,000 & can't replace because the new models have a bigger screen that doesn't fit the 2016 model
Interior is spaced nicely but it is awful hard plastics
Brakes have worn unevenly from factory
Car bottoms out on the smallest of speed bumps which means I have to slow down to a crawl to go over any bump or fear that my front bumper will be ripped off.

2006 Honda Civic VTi
This car has done almost 400,000 kms and it still drives like its brand new. The car has been maintained and serviced regularly every year and at every milestone. Have only had to replace the CV boot, engine mount and break light bulbs while the car has been in my possession. Parts are not too expensive and overall owning the car has been very affordable. Its a great sized car and effective for everyday use. Would seriously consider buying another civic within the 8th gen range with lower kms because this model is reliable and stand the test of time.

2007 Honda Civic VTI
Omg I thought this car wasn't going to last more then 400,000km and it has I've had the car serviced and maintained in excellent condition for them 7years I've had it. The only problem I had was the light switch but was an easy fix. Breaks were falling apart and got that replacements but overall I wouldn't mind spending $20k for a newer edition of the car 10/10 keep doing what you do Honda very happy customer and a loyal one two now.

Loved it until it stalled and stalled again
I bought 50 year edition of Honda civic in 2019 Dec. After an horrible buying experience at ALTO Honda Blacktown I was hoping that my woes are finished. Not even 1.5 years in, Honda calls back the car because its not fit for driving and fault can result into a mishap. All this time while I was driving Honda civic, I was putting my and my family's life on risk. Honda Rydalmere then performs the desired service after 10 days. allegedly replacing the faulty component. 4 months later I am driving to work in morning , my car slows down from 80 to 3...0 kmh . I somehow manage to drive it to a safe parking spot. I contact Honda rydalmere. They again have no slots for available for repair. the latest day available is after 10 days. I ask for a courtesy car which I am refused very rudely. After 10 day Honda rydalmere repairs my car and performs a service as well. The very next day the car stalls again in an 80 kmph speed zone putting me in risk ,only after driving less than 3 kilometres. Honda rydalmere sent me home a faulty car. I paid 300 dollars for nothing. I again try to book in a date for repair but the nearest date was 7 days later. I get my car towed to Honda Castle Hill. They tell me on 7th day that same component is faulty for which Car was called back 4 months ago. They ask me to pay 1400 dollars more to get it rectified. The car has 5 years warranty. I try to discuss this with Honda castle hill team but rather than understanding my problem and my frustration , the dealer tells me that he can pack my car up and I can take it home like that, I am without my car for past 1 month now, I am shelling out money on uber and I have no vehicle in emergencies. My only fault is that I trusted Honda. I am afraid Honda dealership will give me faulty car again. I am afraid they will keep telling me to shell out money by making excuses leaving something faulty everytime. I am afraid I will end up in a mishap because Honda civic breaksdown in the middle of the road and the Honda service can not rectify the fault. I am disappointed , I will never buy honda again. I will never recommend this brand to any one.

Perfect for Our Needs Still !
Bought the RS in 2019 and still enjoying every drive. Large for a small car more small medium but still small enough to manoeuvre around town but like the extra space when on trips. Im a driving enthusiast i have SS Commodore and the Civic turbo is a surprise it's only a 1.5 litre but pulls strong good on fuel and handles quit good. Interior is pleasant and styling is ok great safety package as well.

Sports Car Looks and Performance.
I have owned the Type R since I purchased it new in 2009, it was a stunning looking sports car then, and still is as this body style has not aged and still looks current with today's cars, it's always a pleasure to drive as it is certainly a driver's car with spirited and very responsive acceleration, as soon as you sit in the comfortable seat you feel part of the car as it cocoons firmly around your back and shoulders, the small racing steering wheel is thick to hold and looks the part to complement the sporting feel of the car.
It is certain...ly not the most economical car petrol wise, but allowing for the sports car performance from the Type R that is understandable, for touring though, I do find the petrol economy quite acceptable and it has never been an issue for me, as it is a large fuel tank and the distance travelled between fill-ups is quite comparable to most other cars. The Type R has been serviced regularly by my local Honda dealer and it runs just as smoothly now as it did 11 years ago when new, I'm very happy with the Honda Type R and have never had any regrets about purchasing it, I have no plans of letting it go any time soon as I still enjoy driving this car, it is solidly built, has also been very reliable and never let me down as you would expect from a Honda. Summing up, I would say that the Honda Type R is the best quality car that I have owned to date, and would recommend this model to anyone who is looking for an upmarket car with good performance, reliability, and modern European styling. I should add that the interior matches the spirit of the car and looks great too.

Highly fuel efficient.
Absolutely delighted with this car. Runs many km's on the smell of an oily rag. Don't notice that engine size is much smaller than my previous Accord. Use it every day either for local shopping or drives to the country. Always have it serviced by the local Honda dealership.

I use the car for everyday travel from going to work and back to travelling to holiday destinations. Very reliable and easy to drive. Can be improved by having auto high beam.

Car gets serviced every 10,000 km Only issue I have had was sensors on front grill were going on when nothing near this was fixed very quickly under Warranty Design fault Otherwise I am very happy with this car Customer service brilliant I believe that I will have many more years of driving with this car

Just love it.
I have had this car from new and it is like new. Always undercover and kept in perfect order. Travelled only 80k as I’m now retired and Covid hit. I have it serviced at home every year and keep a battery maintainer on it.

Purchased as previous Mazda 6 was close to 10 years old and close to 150,000 klms. Previous car to that was a Honda Odyssey, and was so impressed by the experience, was easy to buy another Honda for the Quality, refined ride and handling, and good resale value. Owned for 6 months now with no issues and travelled over 10,000 klms. My only criticism being the slow off the mark CVT transmission, and under powered engine compared to the opposition. Acceleration is made acceptable by use of premium fuel. Price was good and we added RS wheels and fog...lights to dress it up. Couldn't see the value in spending another $7000 to get the smaller turbo engine with extra modern safety tech which we found really annoying and distracting to the driver. A hidden gem in a sea of SUV shopping trolleys these days. My wife misses the outright acceleration of the Mazda 6, however we did come to realise the Honda was the more reliable vehicle for long term ownership.

Overall well equipped car for price
I purchased my 2018 Honda Civic RS sedan (auto) in 2018 after having a 2016 Mazda 3 SP25 which had considerable road noise, harsh ride, saggy seats, and irritating i-stop feature which did not compliment well with a manual.
I drive in excess of 30,000 kms per year. Very few hassles with it such as console under dash which does not hold anything in (falls out upon acceleration); difficult positioning of USB points; cold air conditioning struggles on hot days compared to the Mazda; have to use touchy touch screen for air and music (knobs added i...

Perfect reliable car for the price
I've had one for the past 5years with over 125k on the odometer, ~40k are mine without any faults. The most reliable car I have ever owned. This is a great car for work commute or a-b but don't expect to have fun

Reliability, Low maintenance
I bought my Civic Gli in Oct 1999 brand new. Use for daily commuting. Do schedule services myself. Now 265,000 km on the clock. Never missed a beat. It is still mechanically perfect. Replaced battery and tyres twice, muffler and front brake pads once recently. Paintwork still shiny. Nice and clean engine bay even though never washed. Trim, dashboard, carpet and roof lining are still in perfect condition. No complaint at all. Planning to buy a new Honda Civic or Jazz.

Questions & Answers
2007 honda civic auto
300.xxx kls on the clock
Is this a good buy?
I don't know how Honda hybrids are but no car is perfect so if your deciding to buy that one get it looked at by a professional if it's been looked after I don't see why it wouldn't be a bad buy it mi...ght last another 100,000-200,000 depending on what has been done with it. Definitely worth it if you can find another one that has a bit lower KMs and a proper service done to it. My Toyota corolla sport lasted me up to 250,000km and I haven't serviced it once when I first bought it. Honda Civics do the engine for the Toyota corolla.
