Practical, Safe, would recommend.

2008 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
Bought it new and didn't realize it already had paint chips on the rear bumper but the dealership fixed that. I would not buy the two door again; we have no kids but even getting the dogs in and out and groceries, it's just not convenient. Overall I would buy another one but the 4 door. I did have the manual so it got better mpg avg'd about 35 mostly highway. City driving dropped significantly to 26. VERY SAFE. I was t-boned by a Jeep grand Cherokee who was going 50 mph and came out with just whiplash and and a stitched toe from the clutch. I would definitely recommend to anyone in search of reliability, safety, and gas mileage. Not too fun to drive but practical.
Digital speedometer, exterior 'look', safety, price, mpg, seats are pretty comfortable!
Interior very plastic-y--better materials especially now that they are more $$. It does kind of make a put put noise too. Paint of better quality.
