Heaven to drive; hell to park!

2007 Honda Civic DX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


I've had "Spunky" for less than a year now. Blessings and curses with this metallic blue 2007 Civic sedan are the topic. Inside & outside, this car looks and feels sweet. Sporty yet business worthy, family functional yet mid-life crisis soothing, fuel efficient yet spunky -- I thought this car had it all! The blessings are exactly what Honda would have you to realize...save a buck and fly like a buck through the woods! The curses? Wheel seals to rims: constantly failing while parked on slight lateral inclines. Major cost issue (not under warranty!): the under-carriage shield/bumper assembly fails to clear wheel stops in parking lots causing it to gradually break joints and disengage. Bad!!

Best Features

Spunk (unless filled with people & luggage). Looks (inspires envy with it's plastic cosmetics). Gas mileage (until replaced by alternative technologies). Dash (well, almost... navigation system at $1800 absurdly expensive). Surprises (like weird white mold under never spilled upon rear floor mats).

Worst Features

Raise front end to minimum 6.5 inches clear of roadway/obstructions. Buy better rims. Use better clips for bumper/grille. Adjust clutch & brake pedal relationship (unless you have unequal length legs). Don't waste money on Honda Care extended warranty package (see their fine print exceptions list).
