2008 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Honda Civic 2008 EX 4 door sedan - Bought on 04/30/2008. Right now has 21800 miles on it. As of today spent $857. Brakes changed on 21000 miles and cost me $507. The tires are fine and I have a plan to drive until 37000 miles at least. No mechanic failure as of today. Drove from DC to NH and GOT 41 MPG. I was surprised really. The real cost of ownership is higher than Edmunds wrote. Let's see: At 18500 miles air filter changed=$230; Plus regular oil&oil filter changes as of today I spent $120; Plus brakes (4 brakes, Plus rotor cleaning) changed at 21000 miles and it cost me $507. Take a look for the numbers if you know how to count and save your money. Honda is practical and economy car.
GAS ECONOMY! Comparable lower cost of ownership. Road Handling is fun and cool! Again, QUALITY,QUALITY,QUALITY,QUALITY,QUALITY ,QUALITY!!!
MPG on Dashboard could be fun to see real numbers for saving gas. Return classic view of speedometer. Digital is fun, but classic view is better. Nothing else should be changed. The real car for the reasonable price.
