2008 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


We bought our Civic at the peak of the gas prices in 2008 in Anchorage. The trip home a week later 350 miles, I got almost 47 MPG. Now with 15K miles, our overall MPG is over 33. That's with studded snow tires half the year which drop it to about 30. 20-50 below temps here are routine, and the Civic has a GREAT heater we really depend on. It is a blast to drive, ours has a 5-speed (hard to find), and it drives best if you short shift to use the ample torque of the smooth as silk engine. It doesn't lug or stumble even at 1000 RPM. Steering is nimble, sporty, and neutral. Only gripes: Poor radio, doesn't handle multiple strong stations well, and wipers-only 1 intermittent setting.

Best Features

Cool dash, sporty look, great engine, good handling.

Worst Features

Add more intermittent wiper settings, improve radio-lousy performance.
