2008 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe (2.0L 4cyl 6M)


I've owned this car for 7 months now. This car pretty much seemed problem free up until when the weather gets really hot. Squeaks and rattles appear to come alive throughout the interior and pinpointing the area is difficult. Both sun visors came apart in the heat and failed to stay up. A/C condensation spills into the passenger interior instead of outside. Interior is very easy to scrape/scratch/scuff. Interior fabric and door panels will start to fade in the Summer sun. As for the driving aspect, clutch squeak, gear shifting hits a wall (all gears) and a/c belt squeak is becoming a common recurrence. Pedestrians will get lost in the large blind spots and the throttle response lags.

Best Features

Love the front cup holders. I would like to shake the hand of the designer(s) who designed it. Also, when sitting in the driver's seat, I'm no longer "driving a car but piloting a spaceship."

Worst Features

DBW throttle response lags a great deal where you can easily floor the accelerator pedal and nothing will happen for a couple of seconds. I've actually slowed down my shifting substantially due to the lag and do not feel like a better and safer driver. Rather its quite the opposite.
