excellent
2008 4dr Sedan 110-horsepower 1.3L I4 Hybrid

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.
2008 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 1.8L I4
5-speed automatic FWD
I have put over 33,000 miles on it in the last 15 months, no maintenance beyond oil/filter changes & a set of new tires.
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
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
