The 2008 Civic LX is a great little car to drive around. Ive had no major problems to date except for the one Im going to talk about later. It drives well and handles the road nicely. I drive a mix of city and highway to get to work. Road noise is a slight issue but you want to eliminate it, buy a luxury car and pay more $$$. The stock tires are cheap (go figure) and youll probably replace them around 25K 35K miles if youre not an aggressive driver. The only problem Ive had and is an issue on the two previous years models is a cracked engine block. This doesnt happen to all Civics in the model years I mentioned, but there are enough for Honda to send out a bulletin about it
