Amazing Car — Overall a great car. I recomand buying. I drove mine for 9 months now and I only have good things to say about it. The fuel economy is out of this world. Only a Prius can compete with it. A must buy

Great car, fun to drive, handles like a sports car and is excellent on fuel.  navigation and audio system are easy to use and the built in stereo/ speakers are amazing for a stock system.

Cons

Would Recommend To Any Lower Budget Sports Car Enthusiast! — This car is great for getting looks in. The car purs almost like a big v10 super car, it is comfortable isn't expensive. Car handles well and looks great. You really get a lot of power out of this little 4 banger. Best of all you won't find your self at the fuel pumps all that often. Great car, love it dearly.

Love It! — I love my Honda Civic- fun to drive, great gas mileage and extremely low maintenance costs. Easy to understand NAV system. I love the large moon roof. Only needs oil changes every 5,000 miles. Great maintenance minder built into the car.

Pros

Looks AMAZING and I love being seen driving it!  Handles like a go-kart ... totally sticks to the ground.  So much fun to drive!

Cons

Ride is slightly too connected with the road for my aging body but I would have appreciated it a lot more when I was younger!

Totally Sporty Car That Doesn't Break The Bank — This car is just a blast to drive. Of course it's totally reliable and sips gas. It handles like a go-kart and is nimble and in total connection with the road. It looks amazing in its gloss black color. I feel 20 years younger when I'm driving it!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Zippy And Fun. — Like how the manual can kick out some surprising power. Favorite generation of civic so far. Only thing I don't like is I wish the seats were a little more comfortable. Great stock stereo. Extremely reliable vehicle, very low maintenance.

Pros

Car sat at the dealer for two years and was brand new with only 40Km on odometer. I got it for about $5000 less than original price since dealer wanted to get rid of it. What a sweet deal for two year/brand new car. It is our fourth civic. My wife drives 4 door manual and coupe is automatic. Five inch shorter wheel base makes coupe more fun to drive and toss in turns. Unbeatable handling for the money. Having fourth civic just proves our faith in Honda's reliability and all around practicality and simplicity. No single repair on altogether 5 Hondas we have had in last 16 years.

Cons

Somewhat artificial feel of steering comparing to 4 door model (2006 purchased in Oct 2005) I hate fuel economy. Never got less than 9L to a hundred Km while manual went as low as 6L. In winter sometimes coupe goes as high as 12L to a hudred Km. That includes some remote starting on very cold days and some spirited driving involved too. Air conditioner can't be turned off in widshield defrosting modes which again contributes to more fuel consumtion. Blind spots all over. One has to learn how to drive it but it's doable. Looking at rear of the car from the sides design is a bit out of place. I am not designer but something is missing. Some clicking noise when idling. Four door with same engine doesnt have clicking when idling.

Does Everything Well. Overall No Extremes, Good Or Bad. Really Nice Handling And Suspension. — This is our second car that replaced Hyundai Accent coupe (2000). Much better and more comfortable and sophisticated. Rear seat is not all that good but it's a coupe, and small one. Fun to drive and two years later I would buy another one in a heartbeat. Just with manual transmision. Big difference in fuel consumption. Probably needs very gentle driving with automatic transmision to get better fuel economy. I am simply not capable of gentle driving. I tried but the car simply whispers to be pushed harder. I guess I am done with my biblical review here. I hope it helps.

Honda Civic Coupe Ex — Good sporty looking car. It's been extremely reliable in the short time that I have owned it but unfortunately I need something more practical for my family. It runs perfect. no scratches or dings whatsoever. She is in perfect shape!

MPG and maintenance costs are minimal. Four to five star safety ratingsby searching 2009 Civic at the safercar.gov website.  
Comfortable in town and on the road, with nice sound system including satellite radio.

Cons

It's not a family car, due to small back seat.

Fun To Drive, Cheap To Own! — Honda Civic Coupe EX-L has premium features, is a comfy ride and costs so very little to own and operate. Road trip to CA returned 43 MPG, using cruise control at 70 MPH, on average. Exceptional braking, and never, ever got stuck in the snow thanks to FWD and variable power assist.

Awesome First Car — Good on Gas but only a 1.8L and kinda slow. The coupe is pretty spacious and affordable. A real pain if you want to swap the spoiler though. The aux jack is convenient for an ipod and the stock sound system is really good.
