HONDA CIVIC Used Car Review

Civic is Honda's oldest nameplate. The small car debuted in 1973 - perfectly timed with the world oil crisis with its focus on efficient performance and packaging. Today's 10th-generation version, which launched in 2016, is one of the larger cars in the small-car class. It is available in sedan and hatchback body styles. In 2017, the range was boosted by a high-performance model called the Type R.

Pros

Cons

  • Latest Civic better to drive than recent generations
  • Longer-than-average warranty
  • Ingenious multi-fold 'Magic' rear seats of pre-2016 models
  • Latest Civic Type R is a brilliant hot-hatch
  • Magic seats don't feature on latest-generation Civic
  • Now a relatively big car if you're looking for something more compact
  • 1.8-litre engine lacks verve of 1.5-litre turbo
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) only on higher grades

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO HONDA CIVIC

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: HONDA CIVIC (2012 to 2016)

The Civic to find second-hand from the last-generation pack is an early-2012 sedan, which was actually built in Japan.

Beyond mid-2012, Honda Australia stopped importing the Japanese-built sedan and switched supply to its Thai factory. And while quality was generally okay, the made-in-Japan model should be even better. The hatchback version, meanwhile, was made in the UK.

The biggest mechanical check is that the engine has had all its scheduled oil changes and preventative maintenance. Honda's engines perform as well as they do thanks to V-Tec technology that is a clever way of giving a small engine a big heart.

The process involves forcing oil through lots of small passageways to vary the valve timing and lift while the engine is running. But dirty oil will soon clog up those oilways and lead to V-Tec failure and permanent engine damage. So check the service record closely and avoid a neglected car.

These engines can use a little oil between services, too, so keep an eye on the dipstick until you learn the engine's drinking habits.
