It looked like the paint was rubbed off with steel wool. But, if you go beyond 6,000rpm, the engine switches over to a race cam profile, which gives an immediate 30 horsepower and screams all the way to the 8,000rpm redline making 197 horsepower. Una volta spedito il veicolo, il passaggio successivo è lo sdoganamento. I eventually tried another charger which I new was working and it did not function. The headlights and dash board lights stayed on. Further troubleshooting indicated need new compressor. Seems to have improved over time, i.

They often swerve in front of me and I have to slam on the brakes just to find out that they have had their turn signal on for a while I just was not able to see it.
I also love that it keeps the value. Even in base cars, the height-adjustable seats leave great headroom for tall drivers. The trade-off for our bolt-on tech was a lack of integration, as illustrated by this nest of wires powering the devices. It looks like stripping on a car that is at least 10 years older. It doesn't seem to be caused by anything we did to the car and we consider it a paint defect.
All variants of the 2009 Honda Civic share the same distinctive, futuristic styling that Cars. The only thing I don't like about it is that its a little cramped for 5 people and its sometimes hard to get out of. Si-exclusive features include a standard limited-slip differential, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and Si exterior trim, as well as synthetic sports seats. Automatic transmission is a bit of a killjoy during performance driving. Because we feel that fuel economy meters should be standard, we added a. That being said, the reason the car has a stiff ride is because it handles like a dream.
Shifts normally under medium or hard acceleration. The two-tiered instrument cluster is a bit weird at first, but over time we came to love it. Sometimes they do--sometimes they don't. They troubleshot again, with no fault found and handed it back. On the lower level are the tachometer, trip computer, transmission information, and an array of warning lights. They caused the tires to wear prematurely. When you slam on the gas the tachometer flies to an 8,000-rpm redline—that's high—and it doesn't feel like it will stop there.
It continues to get worse and can't be cleaned up. Thanks to the Civic's well-built cabin, rattling door panels are a non-issue. Also, backseat passengers had better not be tall, or even average in height, as the curvature of the roof interferes with headroom. You should not buy this car if you can't handle a slightly harsh ride and the requirement to rev it to make any real power. Safety The Civic is pretty well equipped with standard safety features, including front, front side, and curtain airbags on all models, along with four-wheel anti-lock brakes.

I replaced brakes, rotors and calipers. The 2009 Honda Civic lineup has been mildly restyled, but overall it maintains the futuristic styling on display last year. It gives it a luxurious feel and look.

This iPod holder has brackets for the iPod Touch and both generations of iPhone, as well as a suction cup to mount the device to the windshield for easy access. It runs excellent and will continue to run for much more than 250k miles. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. It also handled very well in the snow! While we enjoyed sitting in the uniquely styled interior, the decided lack of even optional cabin tech at this trim level kept us from falling in love with this car and resulted in a low cabin comfort score.
If you have long legs i reccommend looking into a bigger car. Wind noise is minimal within the 2009 Honda Civic, especially in sedan form. The Civic is one of the most oft-modified cars in the world, so we decided to upgrade ours. The overall effect is it seems as though you're commanding the Civic through a video game, and while it's not very believable on the sedan, it does work somewhat better on the Civic coupe. But, it's a short throw kit and positioned very close to the steering wheel. These associations are far from accidental, as Honda has built a reputation on the quality of its vehicles, and the 2009 Honda Civic is no exception. A base Civic costs about 16 grand, for which one gets a stripper.
Pronounced road noise remains a complaint. The styling of the exterior is so compact compared to the abundunce of space inside. The Civic coupe and sedan are powered by a 140-hp, 1. Although the digital spedometer took some getting used to, I think it is very cool and prevents you from taking your eyes of the road.
