A Honda Civic has always been known as one of the most "bullet proof" cars ever to be sold in America. The Honda Civic has a reputation for reliability for which other makers are envious. One of the reasons for this is that a Civic was usually sold as an entry level vehicle, purchased as a first car or for commuting. They didn't break down because there just wasn't that many components to break. Over the years, either due to government regulations or consumer demand, the Civic has gone hi-tech.

Even though the list of high tech gadgetry grows each year, the Civic's reputation is intact and justly deserved. In fact the Civic is the most reliable of all models offered by Honda. Since Honda Care pricing is based on risk, Honda Care pricing for a Civic is lower than any other Honda model. However, this doesn't mean that Civics never break down, it just means that they break down less often than other models. Also, keep in mind that parts don't cost less for a Civic and dealers don't charge less per hour to repair a Civic.
