2009 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)
First Honda. Had a Matrix before this. Love the look of this car and the way it drives. Antilock brakes occasionally feel "crunchy." Auto transmission doesn't always shift smoothly. Axle nut loose after 6000 miles. Do not like the auto up windows or the seat belt alarm that takes forever to go off. (I know, I know, it's illegal to not wear a seatbelt!) 35 mpg hwy is great. Not so good city driving. About 24 mpg. Combo driving is still good. Ride is hard but will try the lower tire pressure.
Looks and drives great. Good trunk size. Controls on steering wheel are good.
Auto up windows are a pain. Seatbelt alarm should remind and go off. Would like a thicker steering wheel.
