The dependable, safe 2008 civic.

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

The 2008 Honda civic is a very reliable car. I trust this car to take me anywhere at all times. I have owned it for two years and I haven't had any problems with it at all. It was bought with 70000 miles on it and now has 110000 miles on it. I do a 1000 mile road trip about 2-3 times a year to my hometown as well as daily driving. The comfort from this car is amazing as well as the dependability. I am a valet and drive probably 20 different types of cars a shift and I rank my car pretty high among most cars on the road.

Vehicle is a silver car that has a salvage title.

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

This has been a great vehicle for me. I bought this in 2011 and used it to get back and forth from college. I moved to Nashville, TN so this was a long trip. I bought the car salvaged but it hasn't had any issues. Now that the car is so old I have had to replace the engine mounts which are about 250 dollars a piece, but the car drives great even with the vibration mounts. The car gets great gas mileage even with its age. I plan on driving this car until the wheels fall off.

Civic: mid cost, high reliability.

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

Pretty reliable car for the price point. Where it lacks in acceleration it makes up for in handling and general comfort of the ride. Would not recommend to people with knee or leg issues, the low ride makes it difficult to get in and out. Overall a good starter car or for a daily commute, good on gas. About 30 mpg for me on average.

My Honda is reliable and good on gas mileage.

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

My Honda 2008 has been very reliable. I've had minor wear and tear throughout the years, but never left me on the side of the road. It's very good on gas. Highly recommended it to any buyer looking for a long lasting, reliable car. The interior is spacious with modern technology.

My 2008 2 door Honda civic is small and very reliable!

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

My 2008 Honda civic is smallish on the inside, but roomie enough! The speedometer is digital and so convenient, I honestly haven't had any problems with my car, as long as you keep up with oil changes and such you are good to go! This car is sporty looking and super reliable!

Skyler's life expectation

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

It is my transportation, so I take care of it so it will take care of me. The oil change is the most important. The only deficit is the air conditioner tends to be troublesome. I just had it completely cleaned and repaired cost me $264. But all worth it in this heat.

Fun to drive and fun to race!

2008 Honda Civic DX Coupe

My car has only shock problems. It is very dependable and gets really good gas mileage. Performance is good. It had good acceleration along with good road grip. It is ok as far as comfort. I enjoy driving it because it drives well. It's fun to drive
