I found my 2008 Honda Civic to be more expensive to maintain than my 2000 Chrysler Sebring.
Here are the part replacements that needed to be done on my Civic in between 60-80k miles:
1. Driver's side sun visor
2. Main upper engine mount
3. Ventilation fan motor
4. Middle brake light
At 84k miles, there is another rattle/grumble from the engine when idling. I suspect it may be the lower engine mount.
Also, I average 25-27 mpg during winter months and 29-30 mpg during summer months, with mixed back road and highway driving.
My Sebring only needed wheel bearings and tie rod ends to be replaced.
I'm not impressed with Honda quality.
