2008 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Auto trans would downshift out of 3rd and 5th gears under light acceleration. Turns out transmission "adapts" to driver and I had babied it during break in period. Reset computer by holding pos and neg cables together for 2 minutes and then reconnect and let car idle for 10 minutes. Then I drove the car with a heavier foot for about 100 miles and now the shift points are much improved. Am a little wary of maintenance minder. There is no set maintenance schedule and the dealer will nickel and dime you at relatively short intervals. Otherwise, fun to drive and looks great at 30 mpg in mostly city driving.
2 tiered dash, better stereo in coupe, telescoping steering, hopeful of Honda reliability.
No courtesy lights for ignition, glove box or vanity mirrors in EX model, pop out covers for fog light installation, less hard plastic in interior.
