Reliable Honda by loubang from PA on 10/13/2012. Owned 2 years.
Pros: My 2010 has 40,000 miles on it, and besides brakes and tires needing changed have had NO problems with it. Plan on keeping it for my now 11 year old daughter to drive when she turns 16. Fingers crossed!!
Cons: Live in central , PA mountains and it doesn't go well in snow....I usually have to take my 4WD jeep if snow is exspected.
Overall review: Love this car, trouble and worry free.

Beware of CIVIC starting problems by nym13 from Toronto, Canada on 10/11/2010. Trim: 2010 Honda Civic LX Sedan 5-Spd AT, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Best in class styling, both inside and out. Interior fit and finishing are very good, though some rattling noise inside the B-pillar, at the passenger seat belt hanger area. Competitive pricing.
Cons: VERY ANNOYING to start my Civic 2010. I had experienced two failures of starting for the first time, within 10 days owning this brand new car. On both occasions, the outside temperature was merely 15C (~59F) and the CIVIC was left at parking lots between 1 to 4 hours during the day. The 2nd attempt to start were successful, though still a little sputtering. The mechanic at dealer shop suggested waiting for SIX SECONDS at the ON position (i.e. II at ignition) before starting. I am concerned about the long term reliability of the starting system. My own search in the Net reveals wide-spread complaints by 8th Generation (2006-now) Civic owners. Honda, please come clean with a recall.
Overall review: A very stylish, good looking car both inside and out. My wish is that Honda corrects the hard starting problem with Honda Civic. Then this car is perfect.

Great job from honda by dddd on 02/16/2012. Trim: 2010 Honda Civic DX Coupe 5-Spd AT, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The car drives very smooth, is very comfortable, is super responsive for an automatic, the iMid display, iPod hookup, and steering wheel controls are very user friendly. To top it all off it does not need a major service for 10000 miles.
Cons: it is not the best looking (inside and out), or most technologically advanced of all of the competitors.
Overall review: go for it

Nice Car by Happy Retiree on 02/09/2012. Trim: 2010 Honda Civic LX-S Sedan 5-Spd AT, Owned 2 years.
Pros: We love the mileage,comfort, and handling of this vehicle.
Cons: The only negatives we find are the interior noise level. I believe this should be of concern to Honda. I might add that the vehicle is very low to the ground and therefore scrapes everywhere and is difficult to get in and out of.Nice Car
Overall review: This is a wonderful vehicle, and we truely have enjoyed it. I do wishthe"CONS" were corrected, but even so, we would highly recommend it.

Good Choice by SilverFox from Phoenix on 03/14/2011. Trim: 2010 Honda Civic EX Coupe 5-Spd AT, Owned 2 years.
Pros: The fuel economy is excellent. 40-41 mpg on the commute which is about 2/3 freeway. The car is fun to drive, handles well, has good acceleration and easy to park. The instrument panel lights are nice and adjustable. Decent room for a coupe... and remember it is a coupe. If you have a family get the sedan. Unless you must shift gears, or live in the mountains, get the automatic as it gives the best economy and works flawlessly with the 4 cylinder engine.
Cons: I think some of Honda's parts suppliers are not up to traditional Honda standards. I had 2 issues with mine early on that were fortunately covered under warranty. In the 2nd week of ownership the AC compressor went bad, and then at 30k the power steering rack seals went out. Both items were replaced with no hassle. There is a blind spot right rear that you need to be aware of... tho not an issue for the sedan. As far as road noise is concerned, I upgraded to Michelins which solved that minor issue. Keep at 35 psi for best results.
Overall review: Excellent commuter car. Fit and finish are also excellent. There are several good cars in this segment that you may want to also consider. This is one that is better than most. If you like what you see, it's a no-brainer. Mine is actually a 2007. It has 90K miles and I plan to keep it til the wheels fall off. It's almost due for it's first tune-up... Ha!
