2009 Honda Civic DX-VP 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


First new car I've ever bought. I had driven multiple cars, and did not realize this did not have keyless entry, no arm rest, not even floor mats until I was driving it home. I was furious. I brought it back. But they wanted an additional $4000 for the keyless entry and armrest. We were hoping to get the cash for clunkers, but they decided they couldn't do it because the computer system was overloaded. Then we were supposed to get 3.9% financing, but despite our exclnt credit we didn't qualify? We were at the dealership for five hours waiting for the car to be readied. During the test drive the salesman pointed out the adjustable steering wheel, but didn't mention all it lacked. Very unhappy.

Best Features

Better gas mileage that my Chrysler Town and Country.

Worst Features

Wipers leave an annoying streak in the middle where it doesn't clean properly. Add the keyless entry, auto. remote mirrors, floormats, and an armrest!! Moonroof makes loud vibrating sound unless I open my door window a crack when moonroof open. Overpriced for lack of features!!
