Purchased this Honda Civic new in 2001. This car got me and my son many places during the last 12 years. I was hoping to make the half million mark. Unfortunately, I had to finally sell because of a long distance work move and could not bring the car with me. It required little maintenance other than oil changes and required timing belt changes, during my ownership, and was running strong when I had to sell. It consistently got over 36 mpg which, considering the miles accumulated, was a huge economical fuel savings over my second pleasure vehicle, an SUV. I have had five Hondas in my life but this had the most miles. It was my last Honda and hopefully not my last.
