2009 Honda Civic LX 1.8 from North America
Not as good as reviews suggest
Only 200 miles, nothing wrong so far other than rough idle.
Very good interior space.
Not so good:
Very jumpy ride and lot of road noise. May be the tires are the problem?
My wife and daughter decided to go out and lease this vehicle, then decided then did not want it! I ended up with the vehicle... but am still objective as the vehicle had such good reviews.
My current vehicle is a Toyota Camry (Nov. 1996 model). Even this 13 year old vehicle is far superior, quieter engine (also 4 cylinder like the Honda), much better ride quality.
Overall, the Civic is a big disappointment as one reads such good things about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I disagree completely with the exact opposite feeling--
I had a '95 Toyota Camry, and it was nothing but trouble.
I had to trade it in way before it's time because the engine was shot.
On the other hand, every Honda I've ever owned is extremely reliable, attractive, comfortable, and worth the money.
The '09 Civic LX I own is fantastic -- great value; low emissions.
