Great Looking, Fun To Drive, Excelent Quality. — I would apreciate more torque and power before 5.600 rpm. Handling is great. Breakes are great for the street, but they wear off to quickly on the track. Great car to drive, and the interior has one of the best designs I've seen.

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

Pros: Performance.

Cons: Gas millage

Fun And Affordable — acceleration in first 3 gears is great. Breaks are consistent and strong. the interior is nice and comfortable. The only downside really is that it only takes ultimate. The car is quick and forgiving, overall a great buy for anyone

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: handling and v-tech

Cons: low amount of torque

Quick, Reliable Daily. — Appearance, handling, 200hp N/A 4cyl with 8k redline. 30+mpg and fast enough to make most Mustang drivers uneasy. And its a Honda - it won't break. Plenty of aftermarket available for the future...300whp supercharger any body? I think so.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: See above?

Cons: Some bad trannys.

2008 Honda Civic Lx — Performance - 0-60 is about 9 seconds which is not that fast, but not a slouch either. Braking is above average, front has ventilated disc brakes solid rear disc brakes. Build Quality - Honda's are known mainly for their reliabilty. So the Honda you own will last as long as you do. Appearance - Civic is one of the most advanced and futuristic looking cars among the segment since it first appeared on the 06 model until today. Cost of Ownership - with the two years i had my car, the only failure it had was a broken sun visor. Regular maintenance will cost around less than $500 a year. Fun Factor - As of today, Civic is one of the most fun and sensible cars to buy. It is practical, reliable, and everything you need for today's motoring needs.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Performance - brillant for a family sedan, quick steering response, 148 bhp & 128 ft.lbs of torque can get a little bit of power and torque. Safety - Excellent, 5 star crash safety rating. Styling - Interior has good ergonomics and doesnt feel cheap. Exterior is much better than the old one and better than its current rivals. Overall - Great value for money, reliable, better styling, good on fuel economy, and is the best compact cars on the market today.

Cons: Needs more power and too big for a civic. It is getting heavier.

Wait Until Quality Improves, Maybe 2011 Or Later. — This my fourth Civic and I must say that I am totally disappointed. I can't believe the multitude of problems with this car. Peeling paint to a severe engine leak that can't be fixed. I would wait until 2011 before considering another Honda.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Drives like a dream

Cons: QUALITY CONTROL PROBLEMS!

Best Car A Student Could Have!!! Safe, Roomy, And Great Fuel Economy!!! — Performance- well don't expect to be racing with your friens with a 140hp engine but it gives you great fuel economy. Build quality- it's a Honda!!! great quality of materials everywhere!!! Appearance- most people dislike it's two tier instrument panel but I love it, you always have your eyes on the road. Interior design is great!!! Exterior design is kind of boring for most people although I love it!!! Cost of ownership- a lawnmower is cheaper to maintain than this car!!!no, there is no problem with fuel economy but there is a really big problem with its parts, they're kind of expensive but I haven't had any problems with the engine so far apart from oil change which is every 5000 miles. Fun factor- great fun to drive!!! Although it's engine is really small it actually delivers but yet don't expect to have races with your friends.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fuel economy is great and it's a very safe car. The car has a really big feel on the inside thanks to its huge dashboard.

Cons: slow!!! No cd changer!!! It costs 600 bucks to install a honda cd changer!!!
