Well it's official, I'm trading my 02 odyssey for a 2012 civic ex-l. I have one on order and it should get here the end of Oct or beginning of Nov. I have a Toyota Tacoma double cab so I don't need two large vehicles. I need the truck so the logical thing to do is trade the odyssey. I want to get really good gas mileage, that's why the civic. Although, I'm not impressed with the 2012 civic, I do know it will be a reliable car and if I don't like it, i'll buy something else next year and give this one to my daughter since we promissed her a car once she graduates. The other car we were looking at was the hyundai elantra ( much nicer car with more stuff for the same price), but i'm not sure about resale value in the futur.
