This is a hard question to answer, because it is partly subjective in nature. Some people have definite preferences for one make of car over another.

Generally speaking, the Honda Civic is considered to be a good quality car. They are one of very few makes that people will say are nearly indestructible. Honda Civics have a reputation for being reliable vehicles, and some of them last a very long time if well maintained.

I have 193,000 miles on my 1989 Honda Civic and it runs very well, with very few problems. I have every reason to believe that I will get 250,000 miles, maybe even 300,000 miles out of it-- or more.


I've had 5 Honda Civics, including all shapes, five door, 3-door, diesel, dohc vtec, even hybrid(saloon). Cant fault them all were bullet-proof, reliable, economical with characterful engines, especially the dohc vtec allowing the engine to rev to 8,500 rpm. Some can be modified to go to 11,000rpm.

Its the engines that define Honda cars really, and the Civic is a key car in the Honda range. As the previous poster said you will get many miles out the car. Probably the reason why you still see many old models on the road. They refuse to breakdown !
