2009 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Traded down from a 2004 Accord for better mileage so there was a bit of an adjustment there. Seemed very underpowered compared to 2.4 L in the Accord. But for the money, it's really hard to beat this car. Like all Hondas, fit and finish is very good. A bit more hard plastic inside than I would like (suffers compared to the Accord) but I like the dash design much better. Arrangement of radio and climate controls nicely done and very ergonomic. Handling is excellent, on par with the Accord, despite the lack of double wishbone. Seats are not nearly as good as the Accord's but still not bad. Mileage has been as rated. Noisier than I would like. Overall A- or B+.

Best Features

Digital dash, body styling, outside temp, blue dash lighting (hate the orange).

Worst Features

More powerful engine, more soundproofing, better seats, trip/mileage computer needed, go back to spoked alloy wheels.
