Considering this is an all-new model, there are no J.D. Power Survey results or recalls to give an indication of the Civic's reliability rating. Having said that, the fact that Honda is using existing engines will likely make the Civic more reliable and less prone to factory recalls.
Historically speaking, the Civic has done well in the J.D. Power Survey, consistently scoring 80 and above.
The new Civic is covered by a three-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and a five-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty.
