2006 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Bought this for commuting and city use. Seats seemed comfortable in test drive but real back achers in day-to-day-use. Miserable. Powertrain was so so. It could rev up but it was just business. Terrible shifter. Avg 30mpg. Hugely annoying interior rattles that dealer said were normal and would not fix. Handling was only average - a compromise of compromises, not comfortable, not precise, even w/good Michelin tires. My third new Honda and my very last. This seems like an excellent chassis, but not correctly exploited. Toyota Corolla a better choice for a commuter compact, quieter and better mannered. All in all, the car made me miserable. Sold at 6700 mi

Favorite Features

Styling. Solid chassis design.

Suggested Improvements

Scrap the 1.8L engine and use only the 2.0L and Si six speed gear box. Upgrade damping and sell the car with alloys and disc brakes only. Try using Volkswagen seats. Some noise insulation. Learn from Toyota interior. This was an unpleasant car.
