First and last Honda

2008 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Traded a '95 Camry for this brand new '08 Civic. Never owned a Honda product, but thought I had nothing to lose, given all the hype about Honda quality. Boy was that a mistake! Lousy gas mileage (never better than 25 mpg, but my much bigger Camry got 23), mechanical problems - worn out strut mounts, A/C quit working, 3 out of 4 electric door locks went bad, and the list goes on. Rented a Nissan Sentra last time my Civic was in the shop, and was astonished at how quiet it was on the highway compared to my Civic. This is my first AND LAST Honda product. Trading it in ASAP for a Toyota.
Fun to drive.
Better gas mileage, sound insulation to deal with deafening road noise, general quality.
