5,000 Miles and Counting - 2016 Honda Civic Long-Term Road Test

Our 2016 Honda Civic is a very likeable car that is equally good around town and on the open road, but it hasn't amassed miles as quickly as I expected.

    Great review @ksmo, thanks.

    You made me miss one of my all time favorite rides - my circa 1978 Blue Hole OCA. It was heavy enough that the ("original" before they moved the factory) Royalex didn't oil can all that badly. :)

    Guess my only question about your new Civic is whether you have roof racks for it. :D

    I have about 3 different roof rack setups from past rides in my garage gathering dust. I've moved on to hitch mounted racks...way easier to get bikes on/off, far less wind drag and noise. Our 2014 has a hitch and has the rack and a bike on it in my driveway as I type this. Haven't mounted one on the '16 yet since the '14 is set up for bike duty. 99% of what I haul is bikes, hence the focus on hitch racks. Worthless for boats.

    We do have a canoe, a fiberglass (or whatever Wenonah calls their layup) Spirit 2. I have a pretty slick hitch extender support that I use with my old pickup to haul the boat. Haven't tried hauling the canoe with a Civic yet, but this is a case where I miss a station wagon with integrated roof rails/bars. Our old Focus wagon hauled canoes and kayaks pretty well.

    Speaking of Royalex, I don't think they make it anymore. Not sure what the industry has in mind to replace it.

    Yeah, the US factory closed a few years back and I bet most of the stockpiled blanks are about gone now. Even Lego is having trouble figuring what to replace their ABS with.
