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

Review

I bought the Civic GX because I love the idea of using natural gas instead of petroleum. The engine is smooth, although somewhat underpowered. The car handles surprisingly well, despite having a big (and obviously heavy) tank behind the back seat. I average around 37 mpg, in mostly freeway driving. Mileage drops considerably on short city trips. Dashboard layout and visibility are excellent. The driver's seat unfortunately is undersized, poorly designed and uncomfortable (the seat in the Corolla is substantially better). E-brake in the knee underscores that the Civic is designed for small drivers.

Best Features

Runs on natural gas.

Worst Features

1)The leather driver's seat out of the Accord would be a HUGE improvement. (If leather isn't an option, use the design of the fabric seat from the 09 Altima, which is outstanding.) 2)Add a sliding sun visor. 3)Add remote trunk release.
