What could possibly be more regular than a four-door, automatic Honda Civic? When you boil down a car to its barest, most regular essence — a means of transportation that works every time you start it up — this is what you get.
I don't mean this in a bad way. How many people out there are still chugging along in their seventh generation Civics with 200,000 miles or more on the clock? It may not be as pristine as it once was, but it still probably runs almost as well.
The latest Regular Car Review focuses on the car that makes everyone say "Oh yeah, that's a good car" when you tell them you're buying one. It's the first car, the introduction to driving, for countless people, and a dependable means of getting around for many more. Mr. Regular doesn't really have a ton to say about this one, because what is there to say about a seventh-gen automatic Civic? It's just a car, but it's also kind of the car. It just... is.
Say what you want about the automatic sedan Civic, but the damn thing just gets the job done. There's something admirable about that.
