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

Review

This car is a good compromise. Seating is acceptable, braking and handling are sound, and the engine is peppy. Auto transmission uses more gas around town than manual, a bit disappointing (26 mpg average) but is great and smart-shifting on the highway (40+ mpg). Main complaint is the lack of toe room on the passenger side, front seat. Adult male feet do not fit, so you have to sit with your legs bent and feet flat on the floor. Toe room is lacking in rear seat. Road noise is annoying on some road surfaces, drowns out radio. Ride is OK, but bottoms against snubbers on sharp bumps such as when crossing bridges. Handling is good but somehow not sporty. Braking is excellent, a bit sensitive.

Favorite Features

Auto transmission shifting on the highway, very smooth, well programmed. Easy revving engine. Braking. Driving position and seating for driver. Reliability.

Suggested Improvements

Foot/toe room right front seat; transmission shifting around town (upshifts and locks the torque converter, then unlocks, feels like a hesitation. Poor mileage around town. Toe room rear. Road noise. Would buy an Accord next time.
