ReviewGood design, good technology. Very poor build quality, reminiscent of '70's GM. Too many rattles to list (dash, seatbelt adjuster, exhaust, etc). A/C clunks every time it cycles on. Brake pads worn out at 30000 miles (under warranty). I had similar problems in a '95 Civic. Since manufacture moved to North America, QA has gone way down. (Sorry, but its the truth). I have owned many Hondas over the years (even motorcycles). But no more. Will no longer pay steep premium price for such poor quality. Will trade in on a Ford or GM. I expect the same quality problems, but will spend far less money.
Best FeaturesEngine has lots of power.
Worst FeaturesHonda - get your build quality up in the first year or two of production. I shouldn't have to wait for third year of production before I buy - the Civic is redesigned for 2006, but I won't even look at it because I expect similar problems.
