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


I'm writing this review to call out one design problem with the Civic. On a long trip the front seats are downright painful. We took a 600 mile trip at Thanksgiving, my wife (5'6") drove down and I (6'1") drove back and we both developed a pain which lasted for about 24 hours afterward. We tried multiple driving positions but to no avail. It was bad enough that we'll never use that car on a long trip again. We got just under 35 miles to the gallon going 80 mph and fully loaded, which was great, but again - if I had purchased this car for a lot of long haul driving I'd already be looking for a replacement. Mileage around town has been disappointing - about 25 mpg.

Best Features

Driver controls, very nice layout.

Worst Features

Got to do something about the geometry of the drivers position or change the front seats???
