In the February Which magazine there is a feature on best 2nd hand cars.
The previous generation Civic is rated as one of the best, and reliabiltity seems better than the current car!

Auto Express do seem to be fans of the new Civic so I doubt they will be too hard on it.

TC:

Up to £2500:
Best Buy: Vauxhall Corsa 1.0 Club
Worth considering: Toyota Avensis 1.8GLS
Worth considering: Ford Mondeo 2.0 Zetec
£2500 to £5000:
Best Buy: Honda Civic 1.7CDTi Imagine
Best Buy: Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec

On the Civic:
"In some ways the old Civic is better than the current car. It's more spacious -almost limo like in the back- and reliability is better.
Safety rivals its younger brother's too."

Terry
Best Buy: Honda Jazz 1.4SDI SE

Just read one. It says Diesel model doesn't come with oil level warning. That doesn't sound right....

It's a pretty positive review. No real surprises

Yeah, I thought so. Checked the owners' manual and it doesn't say "Petrol model only".

The report also mentioned that diesels can use a litre of oil every 600 miles. Is this a worst case scenario or is it quite a common thing?
