2008 Honda Civic Review

This is no time to stand still! The 2008 Honda Civic is ready to take you to places you've only imagined. With the always trustworthy Honda power handling and technology the 2008 Civic is your ticket to the next big thing in driving fun! So… hop in and be inspired this car has something for everyone. Choose between the sophisticated style of the Sedan; or the leading edge looks of the Coupe. Both are propelled by the Honda 1.8L i-VTEC i-VTEC engine with four cylinders that put out an abundant 140 Horse Power. All designed with Civics’ legendary performance and fun with an outstanding 40 Miles to the Gallon. Inside there’s room for five adults who should be ready for the ride of their lives. And with the optional 350 Watt seven speakers sound system including an 8-inch subwoofer the civic leads the school of Rock. Or how about arriving wherever you want to go with Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation system! How about safety! Well Honda is committed to the philosophy of Safety for Everyone! The civic comes standard with Everything from ABS Brakes Front and side air bags and Advanced Body Engineering! So grab some old friends or make some new ones and let the adventures begin. With the confidence you get from the new Civic there's a whole new world of opportunities that await you.
