Great car, un-Honda-like problems
By SamN on
2007 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe w/Navigation System (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
This Honda is not unlike its predecessors in being a quality, reliable ride, equipped with only the most necessary bells a whistles to ensure repairs remain inexpensive. Overall, it's a quality car that is easy to drive with a above-Honda-average amount of pick-up. Comfort is an issue for the tall, as has always been the case. My only real complaint is that the interior materials seem cheap, easily showing scratches, wear, oil, and dirt. This is especially worrisome for any leaser. After a year of ownership, some parts of my EX look worse than my former 1991 Civic.
All around reliability and simplicity is high, peripherals are higher quality than in past Hondas.
Interior wear is the top issue in this car so far: Steering wheel wrap and interior plastics are not high enough quality.
