Need some car advice

So as the title says I am buying my dad a car for his birthday and Ive narrowed it down to these two but thats based on literally very little information on my end because I am far from a car guy. I have zero information of what you want in a car or not, and thats where I need a bit help. The two cars are these 

2017 nissan altima sr 
2018 honda civic lx 

So any car savvy people can you give me some pros/cons of these two and maybe what you'd go for? The use will just be commute/family car.

so about the Nissan's, in general, they have many issues with their automatic transmission (mostly made by JATCO) tend to fail roughly 60,000 - 100,000 miles  some as low as 30,000 miles (though you might find one that is perfectly fine, but honestly I wouldn't risk it) 

Honda civic lx are reliable but have issues with passenger backseat space. Also, check to see how many times the car has had to get its oil changed (dates/miles between changes) some of them burn through oil a bit too quick. that usually happens in accords due to the car having a 4 cylinder hooked up to a turbo for power rather than making a 6 cylinder, so on and so forth.  but better safe than sorry. lastly, It really depends on how tall your father is. I am 6 ft. and have a lot of trouble with cabin space. I personally felt like a giant in a clown car. 

anyway I hope this helped, good luck 

here a website that will show what problems each car has that is reoccurring
