Great Car!! Here are the cars I have owned in the past few years. (I change my cars about every 6 months). I have a friend in the car business so when a new deal comes up we sell my car and get a new pre-owned one. I have had a Lexus ES300, Infinity I30, Two Lincoln Continentals and my last car was an Acura RL. I no longer look for or want another car. My 2008 Civic EX is a keeper.
I purchased it used with 48K miles on it. I currently have 60K. No problems whatsoever. I did a trans flush at 50K. Had the shop use 100% synthetic and what a difference. Car shifts smoothly as can be. Changed the tires to Michelin MXV4’s and the ride comfort enhanced greatly.
I do have 2 suggestions. They are not really complaints … more like disappointments. The EX is the upper level trim yet not stability control or heated mirrors. You have to get the leather package for that. Come on Honda! A $11,000 Kia has stability control! Other then that the car is Great!
