2007 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
1st car I ever bought brand new. The Honda dealership acted as if they really didn't care if bought the car or not. Only the salesman was concerned. The is dependable and economical but not very comfortable for drives over 30 miles. Seats hurt your bottom, road noise is very loud, and you feel every bump. I average 31- 33 mpg mostly on interstate at 83 mph. I'm sure I could get better if I slowed down some. The OE tires only lasted to about 38k miles. Never had tires wear out that quickly before. I am over-all satisfied but will not buy another due to the discomfort and the high price.
dependability and gas mileage
Make more comfortable and quieter! Also find a way to lower price.
I have the same car.
My tires made it to about 50k...the next set you buy, go with a pair of cooper tires.
I believe they are the cs4 models.
Tread wear rating is 720 (stock tires were 420), which means they should get about 80k out of them.
I've got 20k on my coopers and there still doesn't appear to be any wear on them.
