    Been having my Civic 10'th Gen for something like two month now after having three different Mercedes's before. Last Mercedes I had from age 0 to age 11.

    Now... Honda and Mercedes are in many terms very, very different... and although I find the Civic truly awesome in a lot of perspectives, the cabin build quality suffers a bit. After 11 years in my last Mercedes, I never hear any noise of which origin I didn't expect... but after less than 2 months, the Civic already starts to "rattle and hum". For instance if I drive the car onto a different level with one wheel... so that the cabin will be "twisted"... The interior makes a lot of noise. Sometimes at idle, I also hear some minor weird noise that I think is not meant to be.

    Regards, Lars.

    Is there a question here or just ranting about potential differences in noises between what in the US would be a "cheap compact car" and a "premium european" car? All cars a re built to a price point.. and some are done better than others.

    No, actually no direct question... this is just something I have faced. If the response is that this is to expect from this car, I will have to live with it.

    I can't say you should "expect" to live with it. A modern new car shouldn't rattle and sound like its falling apart. The civic should prove itself reliable and dependable during your ownership. However, there may be compromises living with a less expensive car.
