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


I have been very happy with my 2008 Civic since I purchased it last fall. It was slightly used as it was the demo car at the dealership. I only started to have a problem when the snow and cold weather arrived last winter. I found that the design of the wheel wells does not leave room to clear away built up snow and ice. I find it gathers there and makes turning difficult at times. It is very hard to clear it away as the area is so tight. On other cars it's easy to just tap it away with your foot etc. I've discovered the only real way of clearing it is with a high pressure hose. I do find this a bit of a design flaw and maybe could be improved!

Best Features

I love my km display etc. The beautiful blue colour is so easy on the eyes. I also love the oil change monitor...it's so cool!
