2007 Honda Civic LS 1.8 from Israel
The most uncomfortable car I have ever owned
Absolutely nothing, no rattles, squeaks, everything works exactly as it did when the car was first delivered nearly 3 years ago.
Although this must be the most reliable car that I have ever owned, it is also the most uncomfortable as well! Any medium or long journey is painful, my passengers also complain about the hard unforgiving seats, especially in the back.
The car is too low and difficult to get into, especially if parked by the kerb.
The boot is far too small, and cannot accommodate two medium size hardshell suitcases.
I solved the tyre noise problem which so many people have commented on - I changed to GoodYear EfficientGrip, and now the car is more economical as well.
I have owned this car from new and disliked when I first drove it on a long journey after it was delivered. I thought that I would get used to it eventually, but unfortunately this has not happened, and now I can't wait to get rid of it!
Maybe this is a young person's car, with its good acceleration and sporty looks. This is not a car you should buy if you consider comfort a priority.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

This question has to be asked:
"Why buy a car that you were not 100% happy with after test driving it?"

You're right of course concerning your comment on the test drive. A "test drive" in Israel usually means a 10 - 15 minute short run. I have learned my lesson. Next time I will hire or borrow the model that I wish to purchase, and try it out for at least a day, including a fairly long journey.
