I managed to find a 2015 LX with only 15K miles on it. I want to keep it running for many years. I was tired of the crossover I was driving, I don’t like tall vehicles. The LX has all the things I like in a simple sedan, no climate control or touchscreen. The acceleration and handling are amazing for a little economy car. The steering wheel position is the best I’ve had since my 90 Probe that I traded in 2001.

This is amazing! I'm assuming that, by your UserID, your name is Bob, which is my name. I also own a 2015 LX, though mine is a coupe and now has about 97,000 miles on it. And I used to own a 1990 Probe! I bought the Probe new in 1990 and sold it in 2003. You didn't, by any chance, ever have a ZX2 after the Probe, did you? I've never owned a crossover because... I also do not like tall vehicles! My wife likes them, though.

Welcome to the forum! I agree that the 9th gen Civic is a great car to drive with a great driving position. My only complaint would be that the driver side A-pillar sometimes blocks my view when bearing left on the road -- I'm not sure if the sedan has a similar quirk or not. The small steering wheel almost feels like you're driving a race car. Let us know if you have any questions about your LX!

Welcome to the forum my wife also drives and prefers a smaller taller crossover. I've driven it enough that I'm use to them also if it snows it's much easier to get around in a CUV. I'm not sure I can live with a CUV as a primary car but as a second car they make some sense.

I found on CarFax that my Probe was still registered a few years ago, in a small town a few hours from me. I always wanted to go there and see if I could find it.

My wife has a CR-V, and it's not bad for a tall vehicle, has AWD and sits up high like she likes it.

This is pretty cool.

I have a '15 Civic.

The left A-pillar is PITA on left hand sweepers 'cause I can't see anything.

My wife likes small, taller SUVs and has a CR-V.

My name is not Bob. though.
