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


I just purchased my Civic EX-L two weeks ago. My previous car was a Maxima so this is very different. The Civic is no longer a cheap car to buy. The final price was over 22K. It is probably worth it though. The coupe is fun to drive and handles the road well. The car gets around 26 miles to the gallon so far in city driving using regular grade gas. Most of the controls are easy to use. The steering wheel is in the way of the tachometer (located on the lower tier of the dashboard). I don't need to see it anyway. The only problems so far are a dashboard rattle and the driver's side door handle keeps loosening. There is also a big blind spot in the coupe.

Best Features

1. Very smooth shifting. 2. Good gas mileage in the city. 3. IPOD connection.

Worst Features

Get rid of the two tier dashboard and the electronic speedometer. The electronic speedometer is very distracting. The driver should be able to see all dashboard indicators clearly.
