Civic EX Coupe 2008 is a loser

2008 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
I have previously owned 2000 and 2004 Civic EX coupes and have loved them. My 2008 is a total letdown. It has the loudest, roughest ride of any car I have owned, including older Corvettes. The road noise is terrible. The entire car has been cheaply made. It seems loaded with plastic. Corners have been cut everywhere. It looks great from the outside, but that's the only positive about this car. The seats are too hard. The trunk requires forced slamming while the gas pedal has no tactile feedback. The sun visors are very stiff to use. The seat belt and directional noise chimes are much louder than my 2004. Actually irritating. The high beam indicator on the directional stick goes on too easily
Nice looking coupe.
Go back to the 2004 era. Quiet this car down. It's all plastic underneath. The ride needs tons of work. Hard to control. Many small features need attention. The blue interior dash lights look childish and cheap. Very plain. The steering is too touchy. No standard cargo net in trunk. etc etc etc
