Don't expect it to be a "Driver's" car

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


After owning a Mazda RX-8 6spd,(my wife had problems driving a manual after breaking her foot last fall) the Civic was a major step down. It's a nice looking car, but it's weak and handles terribly (very choppy ride at highway speed) compared to what I was used to driving. The speedometer placement is very unnatural and distracting especially at night. If all you need is a reliable high mileage commuter, this may work for you, but if I had another chance, I'd more likely buy a Corolla.
