2008 Honda Civic Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great car. There is nothing to it. Great gas mileage, comfortable, nice interior and exterior, and I love the features, especially the navigation system. Although the windshield wipers don't work well dry, the only other complaint I have is the lack of heated seats.


Best Features

Navigation


Worst Features

Power seats

2008 Honda Civic Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is a great car. I am 17 and bought my first car. The two tier dashboard is convenient and the navigation is relatively good. The trunk size is generous given its coupe body structure. Of course the main point is the mpg rating. Even before having broken it in I get a combined 41 mpg (with A/C on the entire time), even though I do a little more highway than city. In addition the seats are comfortable in the back and in the front, even for me (I'm 5'11"). I love the styling, and the air conditioning is good. I even got cold in like 91 degree weather. I shall also admit the windshield wipers to be cool. I haven't found anything bad about this car yet so if anyone does I would like to know.


Best Features

My favorite features are the navigation, the speedometer, and everything.


Worst Features

None

2008 Honda Civic Coupe LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

2dr lx is way too cramped inside. The parking brake handle runs my knee cap raw. I'm 5'9' 170 lbs, a average sized person and I cannot find a comfortable seating position in this car. My legs are very cramped and my arms barely reach the radio controls once I get the proper leg position. The automobile was obliviously designed for smaller stature people. Car is extremely noisy on highway trips. The radio volume must be elevated to drown out the tire noise at highway speeds. Evidently Honda did not invest in soundproofing. Many blind spots, cannot see the front or rear end of the car when attempting to park. My ADVISE Buy a Toyota Corolla


Best Features

GAS Mileage 30 city 35 Highway


Worst Features

Change the harsh blue color on the dash lights. Move the parking brake handle. Add soundproofing material

2008 Honda Civic Coupe EX-L 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I drove a Maxima SE until it was totaled in a crash. I went smaller due to gas mileage. Looked at & considered Scion tC & Subaru Impreza & Accord Coupe. The Civic won on looks, trim level & handling. I definitely made the right decision. I fill up once every other week & absolutely love driving it. There's a couple of blind spots, but once you get used to them, they are not a problem. Stereo system is awesome. This car has exceeded my expectations, especially going from a V6 to a small 4 cyl. I plain old have "fun" driving it. I added the auto-dimming mirror w/compass (dealer installed).


Best Features

Everything - looks, interior, stereo. I have the black (has dark blue metal- flakes which absolutely sparkle in the sun) with black interior - looks awesome.


Worst Features

Power seats, at least for driver. Lighted vanity mirrors.

2008 Honda Civic Coupe LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

The manual transmission on this is easy and fun to drive. Great gas mileage, and comes with a lot of features for an LX. The only thing I'm not used to having from the accord is the remote trunk release and volume controls. Other than that, I'm pleased with the 08 civic coupe. Rides smooth, and has a nice dash design.


Best Features

The auto lock and auto unlock, surprised that came with an LX, along with the auto volume controls at higher and lower speeds. Huge trunk.


Worst Features

Bigger glove compartment that fits nothing more than manuals. Remote trunk release for LX.
