About The Honda Civic

The Honda Civic started its life way back in 1972 when it was first released as a subcompact class of the car.

This Civic is a popular vehicle, and the owner’s manual can be one of your most valuable resources.

It contains information on everything from how to replace an air filter, to how to replace the spark plugs.

You’ll also learn about more advanced maintenance such as timing belt service and transmission fluid change.

Simply choose the appropriate model year from the list on this page to view the PDF version of the manual on your screen.

Over the decades the car has grown in size and power to enter the compact car category and is available in many different setups, from a 2 door fastback to a 4 door sedan.

The most recent generation of design (10th, released in 2015) has seen the Civic grow to be more like a small mid-size family car.

Originally the car had a transverse engine arranged driving the front wheels much like the British Mini that was popular at the time.

Over the years the Honda Civic was adapted to many different markets and had a deep pedigree in motorsport with many special edition sports models released.

This car has also been used as a platform for other models such as the CRX, Prelude, Concerto and CR-V.

The coupe and hatchback body style have proved to be the most successful in Western markets making an ideal first car for young drivers and a sensible run around for elderly ones.

A hybrid option was introduced by Honda in the year 2000 for the 1.3-liter engine model and then each generation since has pushed the hybrid option harder among more of its trims.

Sports models (Type R, GTi, SiR and VTi) that Honda release also prove very successful, offering sports-car-like performance for those on a budget.

Aside from these sports trims, you can also find the standard versions too including:

  • EX
  • Prestige
  • SE
  • Sport
  • Sport Line
  • Sport Line EX
  • Sport Plus
