Only minor issues

2008 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this car in December of 2008, it now has 75,000 miles 5 years later. The only "repair" has been to add 2 strong clips to fix the broken sun visor hinges that melt in the southern sun here in NC. And the paint job is of poor quality, but still good enough after 5 years. I had to have the AC charged this year. And brakes after 60k miles. Normal maintenance really. The passenger side front electric window motor is wearing out but still working. The factory tires were loud and hard riding. Do yourself a favor (and this goes for any car), buy the best tires you can afford. I like Goodyear ComforTred. They are quiet and give a softer ride, worth the extra money. Drives like new.
Handles great, pretty comfortable (took it several times from Raleigh to Orlando), good radio/cd player/mp3 player, I get 40mpg on the highway, very reliable.
Better paint job, fix sun visors, high-end factory tires. The volume of sales would offset the investment. People do research cars before buying.
