A wonderfully fuel efficent car that is commonly modified by teenagers who have no idea as to what a Civic was built for, with its 31/38mpg (2005 EX 5spd MT), room for five, understated styling and a fair amount of get up and go (for a commuter) it makes a perfect commuter car.
My old '88 Honda Civic had 385,000 miles on the original engine before I broke down and purchased an 05

a reasonably priced economy car designed for excellent reliability and fuel efficiency.
these vehicles are often riced out by adding obnoxious subwoofers, rims, neon, tint, and fartcans
the term can also be used in conjunction with any other model of vehicle from any other manufacturer to describe the excessive ricing of that vehicle, especially american vehicles that should never be riced.
Damn look at that thing, huge ass wing, clear taillights, neon, ugly tint, big subs, and fartcans, that thing is just a regular honda civic mustang.

A car nobody wanted untill after fast and the furious came out. The car itself is a poser, It is the easiest car to find aftermarket parts for, but no matter what you do to it, it wont be fast, and it will still be a honda civic. Granny car. Rich white guy toy race car.

Car that way too many people think is fast.... but really is a big pile of shit. Don't get me wrong... I like Japanese cars.... Civics are just big piles of shit.
I have ran 5 Civics since I bought my car, and beat the shit out of every one of them. Good thing they had those loud ass mufflers :). Come back when you have a motor that will keep up with my stock 4-banga.

To the general public, who obviously know nothing about cars, the Honda Civic's prime selling point is its relativly low price and wide readily available assortment of after-market parts. Any car can be made to go 155MPH provided you have the right parts and the right knowlege to tune it, as I have with my own. I spent little on the parts that were nessessary in improving the car performance. To date, with only about 8000 spent, this car can out perform on acceleration, top speed, fuel economy and handling than most mustang Gt's, WRXs, Boxters, and so on. As an economy class sub-compact, the 2001-2005 Honda Civic sports a 1.7L single-cam gasoline engine, (in our groups case have made over 250 safe HP for daily driving) it is a excellent platform for modification. Its low initial cost and lightwieght frame give the Civic the potentional of EXTREME performance which many sluggish V8s cannot even dream of. Make fun the the civic all you want, buck for buck, this car IS the smarter choice for people who "know".
turbo tuned honda civic equals performace for price. Don't bother comparing it to a V10 like most idiots do.
