2008 Honda Civic Sedan
There are 3 user reviews for the EX 5-Spd AT w/ Navigation System trim shown below
- excellant fuel, comfort long drives, great navigation for our needs
- a bit rough on extreme bumpy roads.Wish trunk was a bit bigger.
Purchased As New
Have 16500 mile on car.Just got back from florida; 5000 miles and got between 37-43 mpg depending on how we drove the car. The power seemed fine for us at cruising speeds between 65-75 mph. Had plenty of passing speed too! Have had Lincoln Navigator at 12.7 mpg and traded a Cadillac Srx for our Honda; the Honda Civic actually rides better than the cadillac did; we hated that car....read morehide

- Great mpg, comfortable ride
- Poor sound system, dealer doesn't know much about newer features
I love my new Civic EX-L w/ nav! It has great gas mileage, compared to other small cars I have owned. It is a smooth ride, with minimal outside noise also does great in high winds and bad weather, no moving from side to side on the road, also like other small cars that I have owned.
Some cons to this car is it's sound system, I'm not a big music listner, but when I'm cruising, I like to have my music up. I ended up having to get an amp (small, only 600wts) and two subs. This made a world of difference, they were able to connect them to the rest of my factory sound system i.e. my speakers and nav. Another con is the people at the dealership know very little about the newer features on the Civic. Under the nav, where you put cd's, there is a slot that supposedly holds SD cards for music, I had to search and find the answer on which adaptor, they didn't know it needed one, to put in the slot to accept SD cards. It is a PCMCIA adaptor, bought it from a computer store.
Overall awesome purchase, I hope it will last me for many years to come!!...read morehide

- Great design, great fuel economy, great features. GPS system is great.
- Some questionable build quality issues, dealers lack willingness to help with issues, little pricey.
Overall the Civic is a great car. Great design and safety features. 6th Honda for me. Some build quality issues (Door seal falling off and rattles in center console) that disappoint me. Overall seems to be a well built car, just lacking in the trim/details area. I think Honda is starting to loose some of their excellent quality control from the past. Dealers, as usual, arrogant about these small issues, as is American Honda. I recommend the Civic to anyone looking for a nice/semi luxury small car. Just be sure to do your own inspection when purchasing and stay on top of the little issues. Great car, just irritating, after 3 trips to dealer, still has rattles....read morehide
