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

Review

I've had mine for almost 3 months now and I still shake my head in disbelief when I look at it. Such aggressive styling on a car this size is rare and in this case very well done. The view of the road is appreciated, but the blind spots are troubling, but I am coming from a Maxima with windows all around and if you actually look and not just rely on mirrors then its fine. I have noticed the occasional rough shift in the transmission and a little hesitation/skipping at idle, but i'm sure its nothing a quick visit to the dealer won't fix. I'm also not a big fan of the fact the rear entry effects the front seat position every time some gets in and out of the back seat.

Best Features

Two tiered gauge cluster, aux output (doesn't inherently affect sound quality ... thats simply an mp3 vs audio cd issue), and aggressive styling, design of the steering wheel

Worst Features

The inclusion of a trunk release on the lx version of keyless entry. Front seats that slide back into the same position after folding forward to allow rear seat entry. 60/40 rear seat split and option of factory tinted windows
