So Far So Good

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


So far I am pretty happy with my purchase of a Civic. Overall, it's what I expected. There are a few surprising issues. Most notably, the car has a tough time starting when its cold out (under 20 degrees). I live in the Northeast and that has been rather often this winter. The windshield washer nozzles have also been freezing up since I've had the car. It doesn't handle well in the snow but I expected that since it's so light. I do like the reliability that comes with the Civic and it does ride well. Also, the gas gauge seems to underestimate the amount of gas in the tank. I actually was driving with no bars on the gas gauge, so I rushed to fill the tank and I still had about 2 gallons left.

Best Features

I most like the heated seats and the USB port. The fuel economy is good.

Worst Features

The front window is tilted so much that it makes for terrible sight lines to the front-left. The visibility when backing up or trying to parallel park is terrible. You almost need a rear camera.
