2008 Honda Civic still works like a charm
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.
