If they still made it, I'd buy another.

Bought at 1 yr old, free mot for life,residue of 4 year warranty, cheap servicing, superb dealer staff both at old and new Crawley sites. Aircon failed at nearly 6yrs old, fixed at Honda cost. First breakdown March 2012, seized front callipers. My son tells me lack of use.
Forgot to mention the incredibly good tyre and brake pad life, marred by the rear tyre noise on the original tyres. Sounded like a very sick diff, but am advised it castellation of the tread blocks, a known problem caused by the rear suspension geometry.
Lowish mileage because had use of wife's brilliant Jazz and later 2009 2.2 diesel Civic. A brilliant drive, but poor headroom and access to both front seats in the new Civic, so wouldn't buy another.
