I bought this 2008 Honda Civic Ex brand new. Although the gas mileage is great I was averaging 33 mpg. Everything else about this car is horrible. I have been to the dealer countless times to fix suspension issues and rattles all over the car pretty much everywhere from the moon roof to the dash and pillars. The car only has 13k miles and most of the tire tread is gone. Also the road noise is really bad.
Gas mileage, 2 tier dash.
Increase your build quality by adding some sound deadening. Everything in the car rattles. Improve road noise. Improve interior panels and have them line up correctly.
