How to Find a Used Honda Civic

A Honda Civic in used form can last many years, so it’s important to take time to find just the right car. Here are some tips and information on costs if you’re in the market for a used Civic:



Although the base model, the Honda Civic LX has many high-quality features. These include a 7-inch color touchscreen, automatic climate control, and a 4-speaker audio system. The Sport trim includes remote engine start, Sport/Normal/Eco drive modes, an 8-speaker audio system, and 18-inch gloss black alloy wheels. 

Meanwhile, the EX adds a one-touch moonroof, dual climate control, and heated side mirrors while the Touring trim has a 9-inch touchscreen, 12-speaker Bose audio system (with subwoofer), and integration with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

With so many models and features to choose from, it’s important to find a dealership that has a large inventory. Buying from a private seller limits your options. At Hawthorne Auto Square, we have a rotating selection of used Honda Civics, so we can help you find the car that meets all your needs.

Inspect the Vehicle

Before purchasing a used car, inspect the body for scratches, dents, and other signs of damage. Rust and other signs of wear and tear can be a dealbreaker, but if you find any imperfections, you can use them as leverage to negotiate a lower price. Check the condition of the cabin including tears or stains on seats, signs of smoke, or issues with cleanliness such as mold.

In addition, check under the car for leaks. And don’t forget to take a test drive. It will help you evaluate the car’s steering and braking response, engine power, and the feel of its suspension. You should get a smooth ride before choosing to invest in the vehicle. Also, test out the controls and electronics to ensure everything is working properly and you’re comfortable using the vehicle’s features.

Look Into Your Financing Options

Depending on the dealership, you can lease a used car. But the most common options are to take out a loan or get the vehicle financed. In-house financing from Hawthorne Auto Square streamlines the process regardless of your credit or income. You can benefit from low monthly payments and a low interest rate. We can work within your budget and you can be approved for financing and drive off our lot the same day.

Other Cost Considerations

In addition to the purchase price, dealership fees, and taxes, you’ll need to think about the cost of ownership when budgeting for a used Honda Civic. Some considerations  include:

  • Registration: Including the registration fee from the Department of Motor Vehicles and the California Highway Patrol fee.
  • Insurance: The Civic is a popular car and one of the most frequently stolen, so insurance rates are higher than average but generally reasonable.
  • Maintenance/Repair: Add a few hundred dollars per year to your budget for regular maintenance. Hondas are less likely than other cars to need frequent or major repairs. 

What Are the Best Model Years for a Used Honda Civic?

The 2006, 2010, and 2013-2021 model years are widely considered to be the best. These models are less likely to have engine trouble.

How Does the Honda Civic Compare to the Honda Accord?

If a compact car meets your needs, the Civic is the car to choose. The Accord is a larger mid-size sedan, but the Civic is known for its better fuel economy and overall value.

What Is the Optimal Mileage to Buy a Used Honda Civic?

Some Honda Civics have lasted 200,000, and in rare case, even 500,000 miles. A car that’s hit 100,000 miles on the odometer can be a safe choice. Given the Civic’s reputation for reliability, anything under 80,000 miles is considered great.
