2008 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Bought a new Civic LX in 2008. Owned 2.5 years and put 28,000 miles on it. Found the position of the headrests too far forward, not allowing me to put my head in a comfortable driving position. The rear suspension chewed up the rear tires by 18,000 miles. At 20,000 miles the air intake meter abruptly died leaving my family and I stranded.The auto transmission from day one shifted roughly from 1st to 2nd gear. And the final straw was discovering 2006 through 2008 Civic engines have been cracking and losing cooling fluid, as early as 40,000 miles. Loved driving this sporty four door, but was unhappy with its unreliability.

Best Features

Sporty ride, leg/head room backseat, digital speedometer.

Worst Features

Improve reliability of engine, improve transmission shifting, improve premature wear rear tires.
