Excellent first car.

2008 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Bought my car brand new in July 2008 when gas was about $4.50 a gallon. Two years later and just over 20,000 miles and the car still runs and looks like the day I bought it. This being my first ever car and Honda to boot I have no major complaints whatsoever.
Fuel economy is great. I get even better mpg than what is advertised on the window sticker. Great build quality, especially the interior and instrument placing. For being a coupe trunk space is very roomy. Especially when the rear seat is folded down. Very well priced at the time of buy as well.
Seats could be a bit more comfy on long treks. Manual Lumbar support would be nice. Car seems to lose a bit of kick when the A/C unit is on. And on my LX model there is only three different wiper blade speeds.
