- Solid Car. Sporty look and feel. Warms up quickly. Great bang for the buck.
- LX is not very comfortable. MPG is a bit less than advertised. Back Seat entry/exit.
A very solid car, meaning its a great bang for the buck. I have an 07 LX (purchased directly before 08's came out). My 99 Volvo S80 was on her last legs, and I wanted a coupe that was good on gas. I Looked at the Chevrolet Cobalt, but went with the Civic (the futuristic dash got me hooked!). The car is very sporty, fantastic handling, high quality fit and finish and is a great buy.
Impractical for me. I should have gotten the sedan, seeing as though I constantly use the backseat. The MPG is better than most cars, but I've noticed I'm averaging sub 30 MPG city/highway. It is a great number, but Honda markets it higher.
I wish I had purchased the EX version. The seats are a bit more comfortable, higher quality fit and finish, alloy wheels, sunroof and XM for a bargain price. Also, living in New England, it isn't the greatest for winter conditions (FWD, light weight, lack of traction/stability control).
Solid car, a few personal quarks but it gets the job done. I wouldn't buy it again because I need a bigger car with more utility now, but I would recommend it for someone looking for a less expensive, gas sipper who wants a sporty ride and a good look.
