The 2022 Honda Civic Sedan has been given a 5-star rating for overall safety by the NHTSA, a respected authority in car safety.

Next is their powertrain warranty which lasts for 5 years with a mileage limit of 60,000 miles driven. Although there’s no complimentary scheduled maintenance plan included, the company does offer a warranty on accessories for 3 years or the first 36,000 miles driven.
