  1. Why Does Everyone Recommend Honda and Toyota? If you're interested in buying a used car and you've solicited advice from your friends, you've probably received many recommendations for Honda and Toyota models. Why are Honda and Toyota vehicles held in such high esteem by used-car shoppers? Should you really consider them over rivals? We have the answers. Find a used Honda for sale near you Why Honda and Toyota? People recommend Honda and Toyota models for their perceived reliability advantages over rivals. Honda and Toyota vehicles often score well in studies carried out by J.D. Power and Consumer Reports, suggesting they are highly reliable. This makes a Honda or Toyota model a good choice for a used car, since these models usually have a lot of life left in them, even if they've already covered 100,000 miles or more. Drivers also recommend Honda and Toyota models for their familiarity. Many car owners are highly familiar with them. As Honda and Toyota reliability gained popularity throughout the 1970s and 1980s, some shoppers defected from domestic brands and chose Hondas or Toyotas instead. Many of those shoppers are still satisfied Honda and Toyota customers years later, which makes them prone to recommend Honda and Toyota models to friends or family. Find a used Toyota for sale near you Are They Really Better? Unfortunately, the excellent reliability benefits of Honda and Toyota models have made their cars more expensive than most rivals on the used market. Are they really worth the extra cost? To us, the answer is yes and no. Yes, it's true almost all Honda and Toyota models are highly reliable تیرآهن 14 . In order to have a reliable car, your only option used to be buying a Honda or a Toyota, but that's no longer the case. Today, many shoppers can find similar reliability from other Japanese brands (such as Nissan, Mazda and Subaru), Korean brands (such as Hyundai and Kia) and domestic brands (including Ford, Chrysler and Chevrolet). Honda and Toyota models are still great choices for shoppers interested in a used car, but they shouldn't be the only choice. Our Take Although we often recommend Honda and Toyota models to people interested in buying a used car, we don't stop there. Armed with the knowledge that many of today's most reliable used cars come from a wide variety of brands, we also recommend everything from Ford and Mazda to Chevrolet and Hyundai. While we're impressed with Honda and Toyota reliability, we don't think shoppers interested in a dependable used car need to limit themselves to those two brands. Generally the Honda Civic is a very reliable car if maintained properly. تیرآهن 22 If you buy new, it should be a car you can drive for many years, with proper maintenance. But if you buy used, like any car, you don’t know the history, so you could end up with a lemon. Like any other used car, have your mechanic do an inspection before purchase. Is it the most reliable is hard to say. It’s near the top, but Toyota’s also make very good cars. I don’t think you can wrong with well maintained Honda Civic. We’ve had several in our family and they were always reliable, good cars. Good luck! I bought a brand new 2019 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport in February 2019. I drove a lot of miles which, is at about 30k right now. I noticed the rear floor lining is popping out under the rear right seat. The rear floor lining isn’t sitting flush against the bottom board of the car. So, because it isn’t laid flat there’s a gap. When the carpet gets stepped on, the hole that’s holding the lining underneath the plastic is stretching out causing the lining to pop out. Because the lining is underneath the front seats and the seat railing is bolted on top of the lining, it can’t be repositioned to get rid of the gap, unless all the front seats and railings get removed.

  3. Is the Honda Civic a Good Car? Yes, the Honda Civic is a good car. Available in coupe, sedan, and hatchback body styles, it has versatility that few compact cars can match, as you can get a Civic. In any iteration, this Honda is a quick and agile car that returns great gas mileage. Inside, the Civic is more upscale than many rivals, and it has ample passenger space. The touch screen could could be more user-friendly, and the Honda's subpar predicted reliability rating is a bummer, but overall, this is a great little vehicle. It also has one of the best combinations of quality and value in the segment, which is why we named it a finalist for our 2019 Best Compact Car for the Money award. Should I Buy the Honda Civic? The Civic should absolutely be one of the finalists when small-car shoppers are narrowing their options. As mentioned above, this is a well-rounded car with many more positives than negatives, and only a handful of competitors can match its overall appeal. It’s hands down a better car than rivals like the Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra. Though the Civic costs more than most competitors, it’s a great buy. Should I Buy a New or Used Honda Civic? The 2019 Honda Civic is part of a generation that began with the 2016 model year. The Honda Sensing bundle of driver assistance features became standard for the 2019 model, though you can find most of these features in older models. For 2019, Honda also upgraded the exterior design, debuted a new Sport trim, and added a much-needed physical volume knob to accompany the touch-screen interface. If these changes don’t matter much to you, consider shopping for a 2017 Civic or a 2018 Civic. These models are virtually identical to each other and should cost thousands of dollars less than a new Civic. We Did the Research for You: 41 Reviews Analyzed We analyzed 41 Honda Civic reviews – along with performance specs, fuel economy estimates, and more – to help you decide if the 2019 Civic is the right new car for you. This 2019 Honda Civic review incorporates applicable research for all model years in this generation, which spans the 2016 through 2019 model years. Why You Can Trust Us U.S. News & World Report has been ranking cars, trucks, استیل هامون and SUVs since 2007, and our team has more than 75 years of combined automotive industry experience. To remain objective, we don't accept expensive gifts or trips from car companies, and an outside team manages the advertising on our site. How Much Does the Honda Civic Cost? The 2019 Honda Civic sedan starts at $19,450, which is high for a nonhybrid or alternative-fuel compact car. The Civic coupe and the Civic hatchback are a little more expensive at $20,650 and $21,450, respectively. Both the coupe and four-door versions of the sporty Civic Si retail for $24,300, and the high-performance Civic Type R will set you back at least $35,700. Honda Civic Versus the Competition Which Is Better: Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla? The Toyota Corolla is a solid car, but it isn’t as good as the Honda Civic. The Corolla has anemic performance overall, with a timid base engine and a slightly stronger available engine. The Toyota's handling is snooze-worthy, and its ride quality can suffer over harsh bumps. On the other hand, the Civic has several potent engine choices and is fun to drive. You’ll get a nicer interior, more cargo space, and better fuel economy with the Civic as well. While the Corolla features a user-friendly (and standard) touch-screen infotainment system, there’s no support for Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. You can get both of these smartphone integration features in the Civic. The Corolla has a better predicted reliability rating, but that's not enough for us to recommend it over the Civic. Which Is Better: Honda Civic or Hyundai Elantra? Like the Corolla, the Hyundai Elantra is a good car that ranks in the middle of the competitive compact car class. It has decent handling and OK engine power, but the Civic trounces it in both of these metrics. This Hyundai has one of the lowest starting prices in the class, and it's thousands less than the Civic. The Honda has a more impressive cabin, however, with lots of standard safety features, a spacious back seat, and a big trunk. Hyundai’s infotainment system is more straightforward and easier to use than the Honda's, and it has a better predicted reliability rating, but that shouldn’t be enough to sway you from the more compelling Civic.
  4. The New Civic Type R Is Hugely Fast And Is Honda's Most Powerful Car Ever In The U.S. When Honda launched its iconic NSX sports car way back in 1990, it arrived in showrooms boasting a Nurburgring lap time of 8 minutes 16 seconds. That car packed a mid-engined 3.0-liter V6 engine pumping out 280 hp. How times change. With 306 hp, the new 2.0 liter turbocharged Honda Civic Type R just trounced that record, and by over 30 seconds. Okay, so 27 years may have elapsed, engines have become smaller and more powerful, chassis, braking and suspension systems are far more advanced, the NSX was rear-wheel-drive where as the Civic is front-wheel-drive. But still, the Civic Type R’s lap time of 7 minutes 43.8 seconds is simply phenomenal making it the fastest front-drive car around Germany’s famed race track. And for the first time, Americans will have access to this car that’s being billed as the most powerful Honda to ever land in U.S. showrooms. In the world of sports cars, bragging rights mean a lot, especially when you’re king of the "Ring." For the record, that’s read – king of the "Ring" for front-drive cars. Obviously, gutsier 4WD supercars are much faster. As the Type R rolls out through 2017 in Europe, Japan and the U.S., that record lap time will no doubt be a major draw card and talking point for the brand on a global scale. What may stop some potential buyers in their tracks however is when they lay eyes on the car’s over-the-top, edgy, fanboy body kit in the flesh. It’s not pretty, but it's functional. In fact, the Type R appears to have taken design hints from an Apache attack helicopter than past Honda sports cars. In their efforts to generate the slipperiest aerodynamic profile leading to that record lap time, تیرآهن 18 Honda stylists slapped on airdams and air vents, spoilers, brake ducts and rear diffusers rivalling those of a fully blown touring race car, and a mammoth rear wing that’s been likened to a park bench. Compared to the more reserved Golf R and Focus RS rivals, this Honda is not only the most powerful to ever land on American shores, it also just happens to be the most aggressively styled Honda ever. It would look at home in a Fast and Furious movie directed by Tim Burton – edgy and plenty scary at the same time. Powered by a 306-hp turbo 2.0-liter inline-four with a six-speed manual, the Type R also employs a rev-matching function that sends output the front-wheels. Directing that much grunt to the fronts however is a classic recipe for torque steer overload, so a limited slip differential has been fitted as standard equipment. It also gets 20-inch wheels, Brembo 4-pot pistons up front and employs three driving modes. Normal. Sport and you guessed it, the essential race mode “+R.” Each one modifies dynamic parameters such as the suspension stiffness, weight of the steering and throttle response to ensure the Type R delivers on the track. Interestingly, hot laps at Nurburgring always seem to come with certain conditions. Honda says that the car used for the record breaking lap was a development model, incorporating a roll cage and with no rear seats to compensate for the added weight of the cage. The company's engineers claim that the cage adds no structural rigidity and that the lap is representative of what the production car can achieve. And given the brand’s past records, I would argue that the much lauded lap time is pretty close to the real thing. Make no mistake. The Type R will start to appear in showrooms from spring 2017. In the U.S., expect to pay just north of $35,000 while in the U.K., the sticker price will hover around £31,000.
