2009 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

Have now driven 30.000 miles with it and it still drives as new.Also got a average of 41 mpg and sometimes 45 mpg,not bad for a gas car!! Just get 43 psi in your tires and i added some body panels under the car,helps to. The only thing i don't like about this car is the automatic transmission,shifts to much when i don't want it to,see they solved it on the new model,with a stronger torq converter.It's something i can live with,not a reason to sell it with these gas prices!


Favorite Features

Like the dash layout,sticks to the road like glue.


Suggested Improvements

road noise, comfort......see they did that with the new model,so they listend to there custumers! Only a six speed for the dx,lx,ex would be nice to get the same mpg as the automatic.

2009 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I've owned my Civic EX for almost 2 years now and I'm still thrilled to drive it every day. Even though it's only a 4cyl it's quite the zippy little car. The interior is roomy, features are located within easy reach and the USB port is a nice touch. It's a Civic, so of course it's great on gas. It's quality built and very reliable. If your looking for a car that is practical, safe and has exceptional resale value-this is it!!

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


Review

I usually keep cars 6-10 years; got rid of this after one year, 7500 miles. Why? In a little over 12 months, car was in the shop four times-twice for Check IMA light, once for Check Engine light, once because entire driver's side window assembly failed-the whole thing, window, frame, motor for electric window. Vehicle was dangerously slow, and gas mileage was much worse than advertised(maybe because of the constant computer updates-see Edmunds forum for more info). I've owned some really bad cars over the years-anyone remember the Chevy Monza?-but this was by far the worst.


Favorite Features

None


Suggested Improvements

The entire drive system is junk; dangerously slow, gets much worse mileage than advertised. Honda needs to start over on this hybrid.

2009 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Review

I leased a Honda Civic for the price and have not been too disappointed.


Favorite Features

My Honda Civic has provided the most fun one can have driving in a small coupe . It sticks to the road like glue, handles well, is safe, and good on gas.


Suggested Improvements

There's some mechanical/design issues: paint chips or dings easily; experienced premature brake wear which dealer covered under warranty.

2009 Honda Civic DX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Completely gutless. Beyond boring to drive. Looks terrible. This car goes for fuel economy and lets everything else suffer. Never again will I buy a Honda product.


Favorite Features

Easy on gas.


Suggested Improvements

More power and better styling.
