We're probably on the 'same page' on this, but...

The Honda CiViC died, and was buried, in 2000!

From 2001-Present, the CiViC exists in name only. They're actually "Global Compact Platform" cars, so called. They share the same chassis with any number of other Honda compact cars/trucks and rely on the assumption that the American consumer is a chump!

Put another way - if you wanna drive a real Honda CiViC, you're gonna have to buy at least an 8-20 year-old one.

The fact that they're still available in large quantities speaks to the silliness of the notion that small cars are disposable, et cetera, et cetera!

Listen to the people who fail. They know what they're talking about!
