2007 Honda Civic LX 1.8 Liter from North America


Great little car


After driving 36K miles in 2.5 years, nothing went wrong with the car. All I did is the recommended dealer scheduled service.

General Comments:

The car is very economical to run.

The interior is roomy and comfortable, materials are top notch for an entry level car. The trunk is surprisingly roomy as well.

The ride is not as soft as in a Toyota Corolla, but the car is sportier and handles better.

The steering feel, response and sharpness are amazing. It is more precise than the regular Subaru Impreza.

However, the car is not much fun to drive as I expected, the soft electronic clutch, the drive by wire gas pedal, make it feel isolated, which is good for the general market. I expected the car to have a mechanical feel like my 04 Mustang GT, or my 97 Miata.

All in all it is a great reliable car to get from point A to Point B with more excitement than a Toyota, great gas mileage too.

2007 Honda Civic LX 1.8L Inline 4 from North America


An excellent vehicle. 100% satisfied


Nothing has gone wrong with this car at all.

It was in a front end collision at about 22,000 miles with the driver of an SUV who was going about 20 MPH. The only damage was the front bumper and front fender. Not even the frame was bent. What can I say? It's a Honda. That says it all.

General Comments:

It's very cheap to maintain and it runs beautifully. It handles well and has plenty of power.

I traded in my minivan for it because it needed an $1800 repair (again) for the electrical system. Plus I was looking for a more fuel efficient vehicle anyways. And since I average about 45 mpg this fits the bill.

Its interior is quite roomy, although the backseat could be a little bit bigger though.

I am the original writer of this review with an update. Recently, my son borrowed my Civic for a business trip to New York City, New York, which is about a 250 mile drive from my house. He made it there on a single tank of gas and was very impressed with it. He loved the way it rode on the highway and said the build quality was impeccable. He's currently considering trading in his Chevy Malibu for a Civic of his own.

2007 Honda Civic Type S 2.2 I-CTDI turbo diesel from Norway


The enthusiastic Honda


* Some minor squeaks inside the cabin.

* Software had to be updated because of a fault indication on the oil level, and something regarding diesel particle filter regeneration.

* Worn right side door stopper.

General Comments:


* A very sporty but yet practical car.

* The handling is nearly perfect compared to other cars in the class.

* Fantastic diesel engine.

* Big luggage capacity and many smart storage solutions.

* Rare in Norway.

* Futuristic and 'head turning' design.

* Fine stereo unit with Cd, mp3 and Wma playback.

* Twin air conditioning.

* Honda build quality.


* The armrests, both in the front and back, are poorly stuffed, on longer journeys it gets painful having the elbows placed on the armrests.

* Adjustments for the lower back should have been standard on the seats.

* Reversing the car is difficult and clumsy. Parking sensors should have been standard.

* The spring on the seat belts are too tight. When the belts are released they are sent backwards very hard against the pillar, leaving unwanted marks in the plastic.

* The stereo unit lacks a "scrolling" display, long artist and track names need to be manually scrolled.
