    2020 Civic. Base model. No frills. Good AC. Significantly faster than the 2017 Corolla I had. The whole lease process took only about an hour and a half. Not bad at all.

    How comfortable are the front seats? I drove one about 6 years ago. Drove well, great mileage, but literally painful to drive for more than a few minutes.

    It has that thing where the sides hug your back a little. I had a two door Civic about 10 years ago that had the same thing. It's not uncomfortable but I wish it was flatter.

    Four cylinder is all I know. I didn't test drive it. I picked the color they had in stock. I'm not a car guy. The Corolla was annoyingly slow, and I'm not a heavy footed driver at all. This one has much more pep. I think this is 2.0 liter and the Corolla was 1.8.

    Does anyone know what this is?
    I thought it was an oddly placed usb input but it's not.

    Is that good? I got great gas mileage on the Corolla. This one has eco mode. I'll leave it on I suppose. I don't really know what it does but a little green leaf pops up on the dash.

    Plug it in to R2-D2 and you'll get a Luke Skywalker hologram letting you know you're our only hope.

    That has to be a USB cable but the end you're showing is the opposite gender devices plug into. Could it be a USB convenience extender cable? Possibly dumb question but is the other end of the cable hardwired to the car?

    Maybe it’s a diagnostics port.

    Isn’t he?

    And black lights underneath.
    I actually didn't look. It just kinda sticks out.
    That makes sense. Maybe they plugged something in before giving it to me and didn't tuck it away.

    I wish hubcaps didn't look like fake rims. The illusion fails. They're clearly not rims. If they just left them off it wouldn't necessarily look bad.

    The pricing games they tried to play with me this time were hilarious. The way I figure, you lease a car for and after three years, you're more or less paying for about half the value of the car. They started at $3500 down and $350 a month, which is only a few thousand away from the full price of the car. I got up to leave and then the real conversation happened. It's such a joke. The numbers are all arbitrary.

    Online price negotiation is a car consumer’s friend.

    I find the presence of that USB cable (if that’s what it is but it looks exactly like a USB port) confounding. Let us know if you figure it out.
