Least Reliable Car but Looks Great

by SorryHonda from New York, NY | June 25, 2020

I owned (leased) the 2017 Civic Hatch EX for over 3 years now. Love the look and even interior styling. People complain about the volume button but I found it to be a mute issue because I just use the volume button on the wheel. The real issue is this the most times I've been to the mechanic for this car vs the last 12 years of owning vehicles which I'll explain below. Honda refuses to acknowledge the problems, reimburse, or even provide discounts on the lease return. The GOOD: -Style -Drive. Really fun and nimble. Terrific pick up. -Hatch versatility. Moved a table, 6 full chairs, and bookcase in one trip -Walk-away lock feature. So convenient. Other companies don't have it. The BAD: - Driver's seat comfort. ZERO lumber support. Long drives (2+ hours) are just impossible and I'm a 5'9" yoga teacher with no back issues. Yet. -Tires pop easy. Went through 4 tires in about 1.5 years in NYC. Just not a city car. Terrible suspension with low tire walls. -MAJOR AC ISSUE: Air Conditioning started blowing warm air 2.5 years in (40k miles). I went through many forums. There are 100's like me. It's a huge issue that Honda refuses to acknowledge and make a recall. It's past warranty so they won't fix it free for me. Cost ~$1200. - TMPS Monitoring system: Light went on 2.5 years on a routine tire rotation at reputable shop. Back to the forums... Many have the same issue. The system is flawed. No real issue just annoying light. And if a tire does blow, bad news for me. -Audio system rattle: The casing is crap. Rattles when any bit of bass play at half volume. The shop couldn't do a thing - after 3 "replacements". I hacked it myself by adding some cushion insulation by the edges. TLDR: This is my 3rd Honda. STAY AWAY. Major issues. Sadly, Honda's are just not reliable anymore.

The dealership lied. Ruined the car for me

by Aaron from Selinsgrove. PA | June 22, 2020

The car had scratches, dents, and a hole on the fender the dealer never informed me. This car was not worth the price the dealer charged me for it. Interior design is alright. Comfort alright. Performance is poor.

2017 Honda Civic Overview


The 2017 Honda Civic has added a 5-door hatchback version to go along with the 2-door coupe and 4-door sedan bodystyles. It competes with the Toyota Corolla, Ford Focus, and Hyundai Elantra.

5 trims are available for the coupe: the LX, LX-P, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring.

The sedan has 5 trims as well: the LX, EX, EX-T, EX-L, and Touring.

The hatchback comes with 4 trim levels: the LX, Sport, EX, and EX-L Navi.

Last year, the Civic underwent a dramatic redesign. It features angular, aggressive front- and rear-end bumpers, flared fenders, and deep-channel grooves along the side. The sedan has a pair of sabretooth-shaped taillights, while the coupe features a geometric taillight cluster that is unified by a long, narrow LED light bar. The coupe also has a more bulbous trunk lid than the sedan. The hatchback looks like a cross between the sedan and coupe, but it has bigger, meaner-looking faux air vents at the front and rear. Standard features include turn-signal indicators at the front fenders, body-color side mirrors, and a unique push-to-open fuel door. Available features include LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, front fog lights, a power moonroof, and larger 17-inch alloy wheels.

Under the hood, the Civic is powered by a standard 158-hp, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission (6M) or an optional CVT. A more powerful 174-hp, turbocharged 1.5-liter 4-cylinder is also available, but it only comes with the CVT. Fuel economy ratings for Civic varies depending on bodystyle and trim level. The Turbo 1.5/CVT sedan model has the best EPA-estimated rating at 32/42 mpg city/highway. The LX, EX, and EX-L Navi Hatchback with the Turbo 1.5/CVT powertrain can also get a respective 31/40 mpg. The EX-T, EX-L, and Touring Coupe also earned a 31/40 mpg rating with the same powertrain.

Inside, the Civic has a standard cloth interior with a 60/40 split-folding rear seat. The center stack features a standard audio system that includes a 5-inch color display, CD/MP3 playback, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, and a USB port. It can be upgraded with a 7-inch touchscreen, an integrated navigation system, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and a premium audio system. Standard features include automatic climate control, power windows/locks, cruise control, and remote keyless entry. Leather-trimmed seats, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, an automatic dimming rearview mirror, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel are available as well.

All three bodystyles earned a full 5-star overall crash test safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Standard safety features include a backup camera and a tire pressure monitoring system. Available features include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and an emergency braking system.
