2009 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is absolutely the best car. The car not only looks great, but it is very comfortable to ride and drive. It has so many nice features inside the vehicle. If you are still not sure if you want to buy a civic, think no more, go for it, you will not regret it.


Best Features

Classy exterior, nice interior design and features, engine run very quite.

2009 Honda Civic Hybrid 4dr Sedan w/Lthr, Nav (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


Review

I have owned this car for 7 weeks now, and I couldn't be happier with it! Averaging a legitimate 47.55 mpg through 7 fill-ups. I commute 90 miles rnd trip every weekday, and I have yet to regret anything about this car. We have driven it on 2 weekend trips, and the only complaint my wife has raised is that it's "smaller than" her Altima. I agree with that statement, but have to say the HCH is much better looking and more comfortable, too. The style of the HCH is head-and-shoulders above the Prius, IMHO. It is a fun, fuel- efficient car. It is NOT a sports car.


Best Features

Interior displays; auto-temp; Navi; mp3 capabilities (even w/not owning an iPod); feel and smell of the leather.


Worst Features

Power memory seats; sun/moonroof; fold- down rear split seats.

2009 Honda Civic Si 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

Our little SI sedan has proven to be a lot of car for the money. We kept our previous Honda ten years with no major repair issues. This Civic appears to be every bit as good. The little car could not be more fun to drive and the sales price was reasonable and not inflated.


Best Features

The rev-happy 196 hp 2 liter motor with an eight thousand rmp red line is more fun than words can express. The smooth short throw 6 speed manual is a perfect match for the engine.


Worst Features

The heavily bolstered seats are a little uncomfortable for middle aged men with "love handles" such as mine.

2009 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

This is truly an excellent car. I am 6'3 and have ZERO comfort problems. There is plenty of space for the driver and passengers. I have read some reviews about people complaining about the parking break... but it's fine. Also, a few people have complained about there being no trunk-release. Are you serious!?!? Cry me a river while I turn a key to open up my trunk. The mileage is great, and the car drives so smoothly. I was very impressed at how smooth the car drives, very little bumps. Also, the road noise is fine.


Best Features

Smooth ride, very spacious, standard audio sounds great. I love how the dashboard is digital. Overall, a very well made car that has produced zero complaints. It truly is amazing how much you get for such a small price tag.


Worst Features

You would think that the exterior of the car being small would be a negative...but it's not! It's amazing how much space you have in the car and also amazing how easy it is to drive and park because of the exterior not being freakishly big. EXCELLENT CAR! BUY IT!!!!

2009 Honda Civic Si 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


Review

The Civic Si is a terrific car if you like the sound of a boomy exhaust, sharp handling, a high revving engine, and straight line quickness "on-tap." The dual personality of this vehicle is what sets it apart from other vehicles in its class (Mazda 3 speed, GTI, Mini S etc..). If you want a high mileage economy car, you can simply shift sooner (go slower) and get very good mileage (I get 24-25 in city). If you want to have some fun, just slam the gas and let the car rev. Once you hit 5000 rpm you start to grin (it's unavoidable). Either way, this car is a lot of fun. On the other hand, if you like a soft, smooth and quiet auto, the SI is not for you.


Best Features

That exhaust note and the high revving Honda engine. Sun-roof, VSC, wheels, breaks (nice big discs), & form fitting sport seats.


Worst Features

Power and more adjustable seats. Leather option with heated seats. Offer version in automatic.
