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

Review

The car is fun to drive. It has good acceleration and corners very well. Gas mileage is pretty good, averaging around 33 mpg combined city and highway driving. BUYER BEWARE THE A/C CONDENSER. A week ago, I noticed that my A/C was not cooling. Called the dealership and they said that it was possibly a rock through the condenser. I took it in, and sure enough, a big hole in the A/C condenser. Cost of repair, $576. I did a Google search and apparently this is a common event that Honda will not address as a problem, not only on civic, but also accord and odyssey. They tell you to file a claim with your insurance company for their poor design. This is not what I expected from a Honda.

Favorite Features

fuel mileage, good control, cornering, sporty look, tpms, black interior on lx-s

Suggested Improvements

improve road noise, auto on/off headlights, trunk release on key fob, improve protection of A/C condenser or relocate it
