2008 Honda Civic Base
The car is very reliable - it doesn't have any major issues at startup. I've regularly taken it for oil changes every few months though, so I'm sure good maintenance plays a major role in it's upkeep. There is about 140,000 miles on my car at this point, and it is still working fine. I go long distances very often. The AC works without a hitch, and it is overall pleasant experience in the Civic. During trips to IKEA, we are able to fit a lot of furniture boxes we purchased in the back seat of the Civic once we put the seats down as well, it is also very useful when moving. I couldn't really think of any complaints but I do know my boyfriend wishes it was faster sometimes when he gets passed up on the highways, though that's not something I worry about as a safe driver.
2008 Honda Civic
I truly love my Honda civic. It was my parents but they recently gave it to me. I drive in a big city and I find that the gas mileage could be better but is also affordable if I split my time between driving and taking public transportation. This car has lasted over 10 years and survived a pretty bad accident. It was easy to find replacement parts. I love the pickup speed and the reliability of the brakes. The sound system is fine for a 2008 model. It is easy to clean. The size is perfect because I feel like I am in a safe and sturdy car but it is still easy to parallel park in the city. I do wish that the rear window had its own set of windshield wipers. Overall I am highly satisfied with my car, so much so that I will probably continue buying civics for a long time.
2008 Honda Civic EX-L Sedan
The problems that are most notable with this make and model of car are that, the inside has parts such as the armrest / middle storage compartment is easy to break if you use your body weight to push yourself up with the armrest. The sun shades are flimsy as well and wear down after years of use. The car has normal wear and tear for regular parts like oil, tires, battery. The car is easy to service, and the cost to service it is about average, particularly with the Honda dealership. It is a very reliable care with very few breakdowns or other issues. It is also a fairly comfortable car to drive, decent amount of legroom and click bye climate controls are good.
