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


First the maintenance Rear tires have prematurely worn out twice due to a faulty alignment set up from Honda which they had refused to own up to even though they published a service bulletin about the problem. Left front drive shaft failed 42,000 miles replaced both rear wheel bearings at 65,000 miles now the rear shocks are leaking fluid and must be replaced as well. Also there is a Service bulletin about the engine block cracking and leaking antifreeze, which translates into a half done engine rebuild as Honda will not replace the whole engine. Everyone here talks about 70 MPH = 40+ MPG I drive mine 55 to 60 mph on the interstate the best ever is 34MPG.
1st and last Honda anything I buy

Best Features

Not the reliability

Worst Features

A car is the sum of its parts - Honda is failing to find decent parts for their American Built cars.
