The Honda Civic was the Little Compact Auto Favorite of the 70s and 80s until competitors began to ramp up in the kind of Toyota's, Mazda's and a variety of Hyundai's as well as Fords !! The Civic first loomed in 1973. It was efficient, rated strong for safety and enticed a great deal of frugally minded consumers. Competitors isn't really constantly bad; it kept Honda refining and also resculpting the Civic over all these years.
A lot of the Civic models fall in a $18 - $30,000 quote issue.
