I've had this car for a good six months and can finally give a decent review of my experience. The first three months were trouble free during the cold weather as I bought the car in Winter. No rain leaks anywhere and the car performed well in the rain. There were some fit and finish issues exterior and interior wise, (ie. panels and linings do not match, either by overlapping, popping out, have gaping holes or misalignment). Noticeable difference between a 1992 Civic vs. a 2008 Civic in terms of quality and fit and finish.
Fast forward another 3 months and it's now Summer. Interior incessantly squeaks as the temperature rises. During the 3 digit record-breaking temp, my sun visors literally split in half and no longer worked, creating a visibility problem. A/C condensation leaks on the inside of the car, so be sure to check for that as water damage to the interior can damage electrical parts as well as a health issue (mold/mildew smell). The black interior will eventually start to fade in certain areas as patches. Paint chips will eventually show itself due to the very thin paint. Transmission used to be ultra silky smooth is now quite notchy with occasional gear wall regardless of which gear.
Blind spots are exceptionally large enough where pedestrians can get lost in them. Interior is heavily scratch/scuff prone especially around the lower door panels (high traffic area). The slightest touch with your shoes will scuff it. Guarantee. And that's it for now.
