Honda Civic Lemon Odds and Nada Odds

Other sources of Honda Civic reliability information provide only averages, which can conceal as much as they reveal. So we also report the percentage of Honda Civics with no repairs at all in the past year and the percentage of Honda Civics that are lemons (required three or more repair trips in the past year). These figures might surprise you.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to closely track Honda Civic lemon odds as the cars age. Others can be over a year behind. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Honda Civic has been recently.

Ricer. You should know what that word means in car culture before you get yourself into the Civic Si. That said, the eighth generation Civic Si has been around long enough that people are starting to figure out what Honda actually made... so maybe the reputation isn't all bad. see full Honda Civic review
