Overall:

I Like It Very Much And Next My Car Will Be Honda Accord Type S :) (wanna More Power). — Great acceleration for 1.8l engine. Braking is good, but quickly heat up when active driving. Appearance is amazing inside and outside, I enjoy it every day. It is a big pleasure and fun to drive this car. It is my first car and I' happy with my choice.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It is more than car.

Cons: I can't say anything bad about my car.

Happy I Bought The Honda Civic 2008 — I like the stance of the car. It dose look like it's moving fast event when it is standing still. Good performance for a 30 mpg overall car Minor internal rattles, road noice maybe a concern I like the styling - the digital gauges, tacho, interior space Fun factor - Good feedback from the wheel, capable of fast cornering Not a good drift car...did three corners and I was more shaky than I've ever been before....if you want to drift, get a RWD

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sporty but elegant

Cons: Low ground clearence

2008 Honda Civic HybridReview

Overall:

Overall Great Car For Long Commuters That Want To Save Money On Gas. — Very good gas mileage where ever you drive. A beautiful dashboard and LED display. The braking and handling is also really good. Build quality is great it has 22,500 miles on it now and has never gone for a repair. Nothing too special about the exterior, looks like any other civic sedan but there are minor differences like the rims and such. Other than that the only disappointing thing is the power with a 93 hp 1.3L 4cyl i-VTEC and a 20hp electric motor there's not much pull on the car so essentially the launch and acceleration is not fast at all.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage, awesome interior.

Cons: It doesnt put out much power, so its not for the thrill seeker.

2008 Honda Civic EX Review
says:
I had my 2008 Civic from 2009 through 2017. We were quickly approaching 300k miles and this thing showed zero signs of giving up anytime soon. It got great gas mileage, never needed anything more than regular maintenance, and still liked to be thrown around with the best of them. The interior was falling apart, bodywork too, and that thing just didnt want to quit.
