Warranty

The Civic comes with Honda's basic three-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty, and a limited powertrain warranty for five years or 60,000 miles. Corrosion protection is good for five years with unlimited miles.

Many auto writers attest to the Civic's longstanding reputation as a dependable vehicle. Noting that its "famed reliability" is part of what makes it a great value, BusinessWeek writes, "It is easy to see why the Civic is the second-best selling car in the U.S."
