what is the allure of the civic?

hi everybody, I figured I would ask this question on a civic forum to get the most feedback. What is the allure of the honda civic? All racing nonsense aside , what makes it such a good car to you? fuel economy? ease of maintenance? Also, What is the average civic owners opinion on ricers?( I hate them personally)
PS, in case your are wondering, I own a ford f350 and a porsche caymen. this wasn't meant to be disrespectful at all, so no hating, unless you are a ricer. in that case i don't care

It's all I need. Being 21 and not having a family, I don't need anything big or flashy. Plus I can't complain about reliability and fuel economy. Oh it's looks pretty good too haha

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

I didn't have a choice when I got the car. The car was a HS grad present to me. I definitely like the gas mileage, and the suspension is decent from the factory. The civic wasn't my first choice of wanted vehicles, but the more I drove it the more I liked it. I'm prolly gonna run it in to the ground. Definitely a fun drive

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

I like: Mpg, look, aftermarket parts everywhere, easy maintenance, cheap parts, gets me from point a to point be without having to worry about it breaking down.

I don't like: a thief magnet, the stereo type it brings because of ricers those that think its a sports car and put on huge wings like it going to fly with chromed 20in rims that the car is struggling to move with purple head light and different color doors and we all know most did not get it from the junk yard and to top it all off you can hear them three blocks away because of there fart cannons.(end rant notice how much i had this people)

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

cheap and easy to deal with except for timing belt. Ergonomics are great - everything is accessible and the seats are great for the car price. A Corolla kills my back in 2 hours, a cavalier does it in 30 minutes...
And fuel mileage, plus if back seat is down, half the house goes in the trunk and still got me 44 MPG

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

simple car, very easy to fix almost anything, easy access to parts, lots of options for customizing, overall reliable and pretty good on gas. nothing wrong with ricers if they drive normally.

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

Looks, gas mileage, driving it is fun, cheap on maintenance / repairs, i dunno... what isn't there to like?

At 19, i don't need anything else ... and even though its not the cheapest on insurance ... it's cheap everywhere else so it's fine

I've always liked import over muscle ...

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

MPG, look, ergonomics, and above all else, reliability and the fact that it retains its value extraordinarily well.

Re: what is the allure of the civic?

I shopped around for something good on gas and compared all the 4 cylinders and even a few 6's and for the money, civics seem to be the nicest cars. The cavaliers and focus's especially have a crap econobox feel, i would have bought a mazda but my civic had far less km on it for the same money and had a few more options.
