2008 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)

Review

This is my fourth Honda, following a '91 Civic, a '96 Accord, and an '05 CR-V. I traded in the Accord for this Civic and was a little disappointed in how "hard" the seats and interior space feel compared to an eleven-year- old car. I know the cars are in two different segments; still, I would've liked to discover that that decade plus brought more refinement. This Civic feels much the way my '91 Civic felt back then when it was new. Nevertheless, it is reasonably comfortable and roomy enough for a six-footer and his 5'11" wife and their two children. The manual shifter is smooth, and the engine feels strong for a car this size. Especially pleasant is the handling; it rides more like a Jetta.

Best Features

Manual transmission, great handling, great safety features, audio aux input, looks great from the rear, resale value, reliability.

Worst Features

Hard seats, funky headrest angle, stereo needs more bass, stereo needs to be more easily upgraded (major dash work necessary), Toyota Prius-esque interior/nose.
