I used to own a Civic and I loved it. From what I've read and heard it's better now than when I had one.....roomier, more comfortable. I've owned Honda's for the past 15 years and never have any problems with them. That's why I keep buying them.

Thanks Shannon. I've owned the same Oldsmobile for 16 years, so I am having some trouble "letting go", lol. But we're still keeping it. It's one of my husband's vehicles that's gonna get traded in.
I think I have fallen in love with this red '07 Civic LX. I went to the Honda website and chose a color and options (none...everything I would need is stock on this model) and snooped around the lot today...and there it was. Nice looking car.
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to get a new one or if I will have to go with something used. Gotta talk to "the man".

That's what's nice about the Civic and the CR-V. You can get them absolutely loaded and they're still affordable. When I was in my late teens my mom bought a used Prelude with around 70,000 miles on it. I bought it from her after a couple years and drove it until it had 120,000 miles on it. I never had a problem with it ever. I traded it in on the Civic because I just didn't want a stick anymore ... especially in the stop and go city.  
 
So that's why after 15 years of no problems with Honda's it's hard to convince me to buy anything else. I have a mom Odyssey now Wink

Preludes were awesome!
Yeah, my car has something like 103,000 miles on it.
When I buy a car, it's for keeps. This one has been no problem at all.  
I remember in the 80's my sister owned one of those Civic wagons. It was so cute. Then when she had kids she traded it in for a bigger car. The things moms do...   Tongue

Never owned a Honda myself, but I have heard nothing but amazing things about Civics.

Update:
Well, I did it.
I got a used 2004 Honda Civic Hybrid. (Yeah, I'm a tree-hugger from way back.)
I felt uncomfortable in the newer model Civic, and the used ones just "fit" me better, and I preferred the instrument/dashboard setup in the older cars.
 
So far I love the car. I especially get a kick when it goes into what I call "stealth mode" at a stop light. It goes real quiet while it uses no gas, and when the light turns green and you step on the gas pedal, it starts up again, and off you go. So cool.
I hope I have good luck with this car.  
 
It looks like this:
