I love this car's mileage and design.
By Mark on
2008 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
I drive 130 miles Monday through Friday getting to and from work. The sticker said I should get 36 mpg highway...I get 40-42 consistently, I set the cruise, that does not waiver much at all, to 76 on the highway. I do not race the car but don't baby it either. In town I consistently get 30-34 mpg and I should add that I drive with the A/C on all the time. I have 56,000 plus miles on the original tires but they make a LOT of noise. They probably have another 4 or 5 thousand miles left. The ONLY complaint I have is the lack of sight out the tiny back windows while backing out of a parking spot...it's blocked by the passenger seat unless it's leaned way back. I am used to it but it is a pain.
Mileage, steering wheel, dash and trunk...it's huge for a car this small.
Use a better tire, although I have gotten great mileage from them they are so loud I would rather get 40K without the noise.
