2010 Civic Not What I Expected
By kcgent on


2010 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe (1.8L 4cyl 5A)


Updated April 2016. The car turned out to be a good vehicle. I had Honda work on the alignment and that really solved the tire wear problem. The brakes went out a second time at 50K, but that seems solved now, 33K on the current set and no issues. It isn't my old Accord, but it has taken some huge trips, performed well, and gets a consistent 38 mpg on the highway. Will take two 1600 mile trips this summer, and I am not worried about the vehicle. Has 83K now and I am not considering replacing it.

Bought the Civic used with 11,700 miles in March 2012. Noticed a bit of abnormal tire wear at that time. I've rotated and balanced the tires twice since then, still getting more wear, probably rear suspension issue.
Front brakes went out at 30,000 and I drive mostly highway.
This shouldn't have happened. Handling bumpy and it tends to skate over larger bumps.
Wish it ran 1/2 as well as the Accord I had with 285,000 miles on it.
Planning on dumping it soon.
