2007 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this car used by trading in a V-8 truck. The drive is awesome and smooth. Getting used to the limited vision, overall I'm very happy with everything so far. The power with acceleration was a pleasant surprise.
Modern interior. MPG! V-Tech engine!
None! I can't complain after having a 9-year old truck w/129,000 miles.
2007 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
We purchased this car under the impression Honda is a good car. Never again! Even the company was horribly rude, worse than non-helpful- accusatory, and defended their illegal actions of their dealerships. Our civic has since 20k had steering problems, shifting problems, battery problems, engine issues and other parts having to be replaced by notice of recall or failed. However the dealership which did the repairs failed to properly document and repair saying the noises, shaking, and hard shifting are normal. The problems have constantly gotten worse and now that the car is over warranty Honda insulted us plus refusing to repair the car! Go get a Hyundai or other car with a 100k warranty.
exterior looks sleek.
Redo the entire car bumper to bumper. Put the cool air intake on the TOP of the car and not the bottom like all the other cars. Put the water pump where it doesn't get so much stress to fail, install a battery that doesn't fail after 30k, do the car that would be worth the price including the interior
2007 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
The 2007 Civics have been involved in a class action lawsuit involving the rear control arms. If you purchase a used civic make sure the rear control arms have the letter "C" stamped on them, otherwise you will rapidly wear out tires. The fix for this problem costs several hundred dollars (and Honda WILL NOT PAY for the repair). Fuel economy is excellent.

2007 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
The '06-'11 Civics have many little issues. Bad quality paint & clear coat. Buzzes and rattles in the interior. Auto transmission is lazy to down shift, too eager to up shift. Window switches are tricky. Odd placement of hand brake. Lack of head room They have some pretty bad major issues too. The cost of labor to replace the starter can exceed the cost of the starter itself. Rear trailing arms can fail. Engine mounts prone to failure. '06-'08 and some '09 Engine blocks can crack, Honda may not replace for free, even though they say they will (see Honda's Technical Service Bulletin 10-048). Brakes are also sub-par compared to what they could be for the car's MSRP.
The placement of the speedometer grew on me quickly. I realized what they had done was put a lit digital speedometer just inside the driver's vision. You can see the vehicle's speed without taking your eyes off the road. Seats are comfy, cabin is quiet. Great for long trips in my opinion. Engine power is adequate, MPG is excellent in my case. I often got 35+ mpg in the summer driving 65-75 mph with the AC on. Sharp looking car.
Honda should have: Re-designed the trailing arms, and engine mounts. Used better paint and clear coat. Been more careful casting engine blocks. This was likely a quality control failure. They also should replace any and all R18A engines that have cracked within the 10 year limit (see Honda's Technical Service Bulletin 10-048).
2007 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Unfortunately at this point I would say do not buy a Honda car. I have been a loyal Honda owner for over 20 years but Honda has dug their own grave with this car and battery issue and their lack of customer support! Just go out and read all the issues that people have had with the IMA recall and battery issues for this car. Very unhappy customer.
Honda should stick to honoring their warranties and not ruin their good name like this.
