Great Basic Car For College Students — I really like the interior dash board design. The blue gauges aren't as harsh at night as the green ones on my Cadillac. Great gas mileage and repair costs are very manageable. I'd recommend it to a friend or family member easily.

3azeza — Performance (especially when I drive it from Dubai to Abu Dhabi 165 KM/Hour... It has great acceleration, braking and handling... I like its appearance very very much, as well as its color. It doesn't cost me money (Very low cost of ownership)... And the most important thing is the resale value

We Loved It — We loved the civic for the five years we owned it. Not a single malfunction. Very inexpensive maintenance. Seats are pretty supportive and back seat has ample space. We took long trips with four adults in it, and did not feel cramped..

Great looks, modern cockpit with a very nice steering wheel.

Sporty, Modern, Practical, And Fun! — I really like the look of this year (2009) especially with the LX-S package. That package offers real alloys and a spoiler that make it look sportier than the regular, lower civics running around. Just don't pull up to an SI:) When I first got the car it was great. Very modern very well made, if not a bit cheep on materials. My biggest complaint was the power.

Love This, I'm Looking Forward To Buying Another In The Future! — this is a great fun sporty car, enough room to get the kid in the back seat and have fun cruising throughout the mountains. Doubles as a great grocery getter and the color gets everyones attention. Comfy ride, sound system is awesome! When you're in traffic and you need to get around that slow poke in front of you... just ask vtec, she'll get the job done every time! Quick to accelerate, great in corners, you ask this car to do something and it get it done every time. Easy maintenance for the DIY guys!

Overall, I'm Very Pleased With It. — Very smooth, peppy engine, fun to drive, 5spd stick shift nicely mated to engine. Love the new front end and alloys on the '09. Road noise a bit much, standard tires not grippy enough, driver window rattles a bit when opened. EXL should come standard with a better stereo and lumbar support.

Car Is Good But Needs A Little More Power And Little Bit Less Fuel Economy — awesome fuel economy. comfortable interior, seats are the most comfiest seats ive sat on. put a k&n sri on and has a little bit better performance than stock. it is fun to drive especailly in the snow good traction but will slide when you want it to.

Pros

7 months and only in garage for 2 oil changes sure beats VW great MP3 sound system

Cons

Cheap looking interior ,too much road noise and poor handling on the highway

Back After 30 Years And Was Very Disapointed — Not much has changed from the fisrt time I drove a Civic, it response well l but not comfortable and heaven forbid if windy ,you'll get blown all over the road. shocks bottom out on rough Quebec roads Honda may have changed the body styling makinge it look classier but still as in earlier Japanese cars they use alot of cheap looking plastic by now I thought honda would have improved the ride and the cheap plastic look we even upgraded to EX L with leather Not great on Gas, and a little costly for what you really get My daughter has a Hyundai Elantra far better than the Civic for ride and noise If I would buy another Aisian car I think I would look at the Hyundai
