6-speed manual FWD
This is my fourth Civic and they have proven reliability.
2011 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
no problems
2010 2dr Coupe 140-horsepower 1.8L I4

bulletproof reliability
2009 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
excellent
2009 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
Remains to be seen. Bought on basis of good reputation for this 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 110-horsepower 1.3L I4 Hybrid
CVT FWD
does what it is supposed to do
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
Built well and appears to be solid at 10000 miles.
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.
Reliability and Durability of the Honda Civic: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 197-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
clutch should not go out in 9k miles
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
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.
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
