2009 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan w/Nav (1.8L 4cyl 5A)
Car has moderate road noise; seems poorly insulated. Bluetooth calls can easily be heard outside of vehicle. The ride is pretty rough; can feel every road imperfection. Take corners at posted speed; otherwise car feels like it is slipping. The auto tranny is awful. If you don't make complete stops, the tranny will jerk into gear when you push the throttle. Downshifts are not subtle, either. Build quality is less than expected. Rear bumper fitment was off, paint scratches very easily, several plastic interior components replaced under warranty already
Bluetooth and Nav. MPG is averaging 28mpg with 40/60 city/hwy driving. Lots of storage.
auto transmission (or possibly drive by wire system) is terrible. If you are in stop and go traffic alot, I'd avoid this car. Better quality control leaving factory
