2008 Honda Civic EX-L 2dr Coupe w/Navigation (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
I knew with a Honda you couldn't go wrong and when I saw this generation Civic's body style, I knew I would eventually own one. I'm glad I waited until 2008 for the leather model as it looks A-mazing in silver w/ black interior. Fun to drive, great looks, Honda reliability...the end.
Awesome navigation system/XM radio, comfortable seats, fuel economy, front dash design, clean/simple interior, good looks from all angles. Always more fun to drive at night with the blue lighting on. Oh, and good cup holders too.
Should absolutely have power seats (at least on EX/EX-L models, especially on models with navigation), interior materials easy to scuff, picks up everything. Front dash area gets dusty fast, a few minor rattles which I was surprised by. Even still, I love this car.
