Great mileage--little else...

2006 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Owned the 2006 Civic LX coupe for three years. Great mileage, but terrible in the snow- ascending the slightest hills were a challenge. Tires wearing unevenly. Hesitation starting in cold weather. Suspension squeaks in cold weather. Interior plastics cheap and scratch seemingly just by looking at them. Car very unsteady on the highway especially in cross winds and most use the foot to the floor for acceleration. Only had 17,000 mi and brakes were worn. Front end so low would scrape parking barriers. Paint chips easily, needs thicker clearcoat. A/C not the best. Traded for Ford Mustang. It's good to be home!
Two-tier dash styling, better fuel mileage.
Upgrade interior plastics, better control arms, better suspension, A/C unit overhaul.
