Hondas are far more reliable, get better fuel milage, and keep their resale (trade in) value better. The SI model is a sport (hot rod) model, and will cost more for insurance. You may consider a lower end model such as a DX or LX model for that purpose. Additionally, there are a lot more third party parts and aftermarket upgrades available for the Honda models. for all the above reasons, the Honda would be a better choice.

Neither. This is your FIRST car. A first time car owner should get a car thats a few years old, like a 2000 model, not only will it be cheaper initially, but the insurance also. Another thing is that new drivers are more likley to have an accident, how would you feel making a $500/month car payment on a car that was totaled?

I just bought an '08 civic and i absolutely love it. i would recommend it for your first car. it's rated 5 star on safety and has like 5 air bags in the car, including the sides. drives smoothly. great gas mileage. lots of room. fold down seats. luxury inside look. get the ex or ex-l and not the si. sporty=higher insurance and worse gas mileage.

well, the altima is nice.. if yu get a 08 civic get coupe. 4 door is ugly. i dont see the hype in it. (i have a 07 Civic Si Coupe). i would get a civic. i love everything about it. no regrets in getting oneoh and if you get a 4door, dont get Mugen. its a waste of money. all they did was basically give you a body kit and spoiler. and the rims. its nice but not for what? 28k?

Go for a Civic. My first new car was a 95 civic and loved it. But for the 2008 Civics, I would go for the coupe. Now if your going to haul people then get the sedan.
