ORIGINAL DEFINITION: A car, made by the Honda Motor Corporation, meant originally to be a reliable, basic, economical form of transportation. But that's where the good part ends. Because the current true definition of CIVIC is as follows...

CURRENT DEFINITION:

A car which started its life with the above definition but in 99.999 percent of the cases, is now:

1) A still small, gay, ricemobile, featured in the movie The Fast And The Flimsy
2) A $2000-$8000 car with $1000-$15000 in modifications, the dollar amount spent being inversely proportionate with the owner's iq
3) A car that, no matter how many mods are done to it, is still small, gay, flimsy, and rice
4) A car that needs a huge amount of money added to it, in order to keep up with stock sports cars of any brand or year, which are usually oblivious to the fact that they're even being raced by this unworthy opponent, which brings me to the next sub-entry in the definition, which is:
5) A car famous for the RICER FLYBY, which happens when a totally unaware motorist who is driving a car with a real engine, which intimidates the hyper ricer in the CIVIC, inspiring him to show his mania, and, while the real-car driver is at 1/4 throttle just minding his own business and switching radio stations, he gets passed by a BUZZ BOMB CIVIC doing 60 in a 25 zone, 12 blocks after the stop light that this event started at, and the CIVIC driver flashes his lights as if he just 'MADE THE KILL'.
6) A car most often owned by hyper people with small brains and even smaller penises, as evidenced by their 'OH YEAH WELL WATCH THIS' attitude
7) A car that, when spelled backwards, spells the same word. This was intelligent design on the part of Honda since they knew they were appealing to a dyslexic crowd of morons
8) A front wheel drive car with a small engine, that, when modified properly, can consistently produce enough power to shred its transmission, which is extremely useful at the track, and apparently must improve 1/4 mile times, and be the ultimate goal for civic modders.
9) A car, unmistakably in sound (THE WEED WACKER IS FOLLOWING ME), and appearance, with any number of gay neon lights, carbon fiber door handles, rims that look like they belong on an suv, a spoiler that was taken off an old 747 Boeing, and 4 different colors of primer
holy shit man i paid $4500 for the car and spent $18,000 on mods for my civic, and i'm only on my 3rd $2000 tranny, so that's....let's see....$28,500 plus it still needs a paint job...shoulda bought a new WRX, or a Camaro or Mustang or a used 335i, or used the money on therapy

upping the price so all the little rich kids get them,
and look like hot shit. new models (2007+) are looking a lot better,
compared to the piece of ass they used to have.
finally they arent getting the reputation for being the shit whole they used to be.

Japanese economy car commonly owned by little wigger biotches who think they are so cool. Usually sporting a 20-inch fart pipe and sometimes body kits and spoilers. To this date I have never seen a real one with an aftermarket engine part (besides maybe spark plugs and an oil change)

What muscle car fanboys always compare their cars to, or assume is the only Japanese car ever made, despite the existence of other Japanese cars that are much more suited for racing.

That aside, a Civic is an economy car that yields good gas mileage (around 40 mpg). Unfortuantely, there are a handful of young reckless drivers out there who take their Civics and rice them out (read: rape them), giving Civics and their owners a bad name.

A Japanese car produced by Honda.
Known well for having the B16a engine in its production range which puts it in the league of "Hot Hatches"
The performance versions use VTEC which produces a power surge, similar to a turbo, which is unusual in N/A cars.

Because of this many people do not realise how quick the car is and as you can see many people resent it - just look at the jealous definitions!

However in the US it is true that many Ricers get hold of them!
damn that civic is quick! i want to get me a vtec!

9 times out of 10, it's nothing more than the San Francisco Treat on wheels. Usually sporting a huge-ass spoiler and decals for every manufacturer out there, and some really gay flame decals and underbody neons. Sometimes, you'll even see some really ugly body kit on there painted a different color than the rest of the body.
Did you see that gay Civic we just passed? The thing has more rice than a rice field in China.
