This car is perfect for people with budget constraints as it would cost low as compared to its other counterparts, fuel-efficient and spacious. Also, Honda is known for its durable spare parts and strong body skeleton.

Hondas are always a good car to go with. The 2008 is roomier than the previous models. Good pickup for a Drive by Wire and a good price.

Almost Perfect — This car hasn't had a repair performed in 7 years and 70k of mixed driving. If this car had more road noise isolation it would be perfect. Easy ingress-egress, the driving position is great, controls are simple and well placed. Power is ok but at 38-40 mpg highway driving it strikes the perfect balance. It is as solid, rattle and squeak free as the day it was delivered. Handling is excellent. The interior is designed with high quality materials. The leather seats look new. I paid $23K for this car new and it's worth $10 to 11K today. For a small economical car I find it difficult to believe there's anything better.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable, solid, roomy for a small car, controls, comfort, ride, gas mileage, quality build., fun to drive, fold down rear seats

Cons: Road noise

Great Sports Compact — The above stars are in relation to other sport compact cars. This is really one of the best cars I've ever owned. Reliable, fast, handles very well. Love the short throw shifter, and the engine response is instant, a very fun to car to heel toe.

Cons: Low end torque is a minor issue, but thats part of the fun of this car, keeping it in its power band pays off

Couldn't Ask For A Better Vehicle — For a family sized sedan, Civics are stylish while being comfortable. It got me to Virginia and I was comfortable the entire time! They have little to no serious maintenance issues and only went to the shop to get routine oil changes. The money this car saved me in gas was incredible and most definitely saved me thousands of dollars after switching from an SUV. While not being incredibly sporty and fast, my Civic was a blast to drive and I would most definitely recommend these vehicles to anyone looking for a fun vehicle with great fuel economy.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy. No maintenance issues. Comfortable. Roomy. Reliable. Handles great.

Cons: None
