Honda Civic Reliability

You won't find Honda Civic reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the Honda Civic truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats are promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track Honda Civic reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the Honda Civic was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the Honda Civic has been recently.

Reliable car.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
They have a well-deserved excellent reputation. I had one several years ago and it just kept going. Sold it with 134k with the original clutch. Replaced the water pump, a dash switch, and the horn in eleven years.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
There are many good cars in this regard, but Honda is again one of the leaders, as well as having the least expensive parts for maintenance and repair, according to a CAA Survey a couple of years ago.
2008 2dr Coupe 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
It is a low maintenance, low cost to own, and long lasting small vehicle that can be driven "worry free".
2008 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
does what it is supposed to do
Honda Civic Reliability and Durability: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
clutch should not go out in 9k miles
2007 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Had an oil leak at 27,000 miles that required warranty work. It was a known problem. On returning home I found the engine grounding strap had not been reattached.
2007 2dr Coupe 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Came off the lot with many rattles and squeaks. Had to have both rear bearings replaced and had a third gear issue. Had to have transmission rebuilt to repair 3rd gear.
2007 4dr Sedan 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
little things go wrong
2006 2dr Coupe 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed manual FWD
Major rear suspension problems that Honda refused to correct under Warranty. Definately my last Honda. I had to replace the rear control arms out of my own pocket
