2009 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


I traded a 15 year-old Saturn with manual steering and only 37,000 miles so this car is a real treat. I did a lot of new car research and frankly don't understand some of the negatives expressed on Edmunds. The Honda is comfortable, the two-tier digital speedometer is no problem, the emergency brake handle is not a problem. Stereo/CD player sounds great, can't really tell about fuel economy yet, had to warm it up a lot this winter. Variably intermittent windshield wipers would be nice, but not a big issue. Took me 3 months before I had 600 miles to finally get to use the cruise control and it's fine. Some want a remote trunk opener on the key? Oh please, I mean opening a trunk is difficult?

Best Features

Power steering, remote control mirrors, ability to program the door lock/unlock features, big trunk, comfortable armrests, feels solid.

Worst Features

Just the variably adjustable intermittent wipers - my Saturn had 3 speeds for intermittent.
