Problems Since Day 1
By shanetd6 on


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


I bought this car new. 1 a half years in the block leaked all the coolant out and my car overheated. Luckily no damage to the engine. They replaced the block under warranty.

Shortly after a clicking sound when I turned sharply. Dealership diagnosed it and could not figure out what it was. Finally after a few years they replaced the right front axle. Seemed fine for about six months and has progressively gotten worse.

Brake pads replaced after 3 years and 60K miles. Now brakes make a horrible noise. Rotors resurfaced, bearing replaced and no change.

The visibility sucks There is a huge blind spot on the edge of the windshield. Can't see people in crosswalk. Scary! Be careful.

Best Features

The oil change indicator light. The auxiliary plug

Worst Features

Improve drive-train, seats, brakes and visibility.
