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


Great car, owned since new. Low cost of ownership; I have not spent any money other than for oil changes (20k on car). The cockpit design is great, more storage space than needed. Fuel mileage is a steady 29-30mpg, 40mpg is attainable on the highway. Very stable in corners. The stock tires (Bridgestone) do not last very long. Replacements with a higher tread wear should be purchased. The A-pillar blocks a greater portion of your viewable area, more so than a standard A- pillar. This can be dangerous in areas of high foot traffic. Acceleration in the lower RPM's can cause cringing. However, above 4.5k the car has plenty of power for acceleration. Road noise is pronounced.

Best Features

Design inside and out, fuel economy, reliability, and two-tier dash. All aspects of the vehicle were engineered to please.

Worst Features

Reduce road noise and come equipped with higher mileage tires.
