Honda Civic coupe 2008 high mileage vehicle.

I do like that the car is economical. However being that it is a coupe if you have a family it is small. Trunk size is okay. I have around a hundred and sixty thousand miles on it at the moment I did just replace the battery for the first time and it was the original that came with the car amazingly. I guess my only complaint would be that it is on the smaller side so unless you are one person you really do not want the car. But I will say it is reliable and Hondas are worth their weight in gold even used ones go for a lot with high mileage. There is no lack of parts since there the vehicle that is on the road more than any other.

The car is fun to drive and gets pretty good gas mileage for a little sports car.

The first problem that comes to mind wound be just the basic material that the interior is made out of. The interior is made out of plastic that easily comes apart but thankfully it is easy to repair. Another problem I have with the car is that it does not make enough power. I think they can make a car with more power and I think it would be a lot more fun to drive. Now they do you have a civic with more power. One last problem I have with the car is that it does not have an updated infotainment system. It would be great if it had Bluetooth or apple CarPlay instead of having to connect through in auxiliary cord.

Honda Civic: sporty and reliable.

I have had typical problems with my car in the last year since it turned 10 years old. The leather interior looks worn and ratty, and I am doing a lot of routine maintenance to include replacing several parts (power steering pump, control arms, etc.). however, it has performed well for its age and mileage (over 150, 000), and has worked great in icy conditions compared to other cars this size. Overall, it had been very reliable for the 4 years I have owned it. Sometimes it is difficult to have only 2 doors, but I love the sporty feel of the size and features. The steering wheel has radio controls which I love.
