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


Review

I will never buy another Honda. Honda ought to be embarrassed to have their name on this car. Although I just bought the car last year, I have had it at the dealership to have numerous flaws repaired or replaced under the warranty: (1)windshield replaced due to distortions; (2) door handles and side mirrors replaced due to the lack of quality paint job; (3) front and rear bumpers painted due to lack of quality paint job; (4) the regulators in the front doors had to be replaced when the windows stopped going down all the way; and (5) the moldings that cover-up the front side airbags show gaps when it should be flush mounted.

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


Review

I went from minivan to this fun to drive car. The tiered dashboard was easy to adjust to. It has enough pep for getting on the freeway. Great a/c for living in Texas. Bought this over one year ago with no regrets. Get 28-30 mpg combined heavy city traffic and suburbs. Easiest car to wash on the driveway!


Favorite Features

Tiered dashboard(should be on all cars), blue dash lights, alloy wheels, and atomic blue metallic color.


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage.

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


Review

I got this car used with about 25,000 miles on it and it's at 62,000 miles now. Really fun to drive, nice handling, and exceptionally reliable. I've never had any mechanical problems, just regular service. It does really good in the snow if you put beefy snow tires on. The biggest problem is the paint. It's peeling everywhere and rusting. Honda said they don't cover the paint because of where I live. I've had a few older Hondas and they have all had paint issues. They are a more expensive economy car and I think they should have higher quality paint. If you get a lower end civic get better wheels put on. One pothole and the wheel will bend. Overall a really great car.


Favorite Features

Reliability is excellent. One of the best built engines on the market.


Suggested Improvements

Fix the paint issues Honda and I will keep buying your cars!
