I just bought this car used, got a great deal on it. I'm 16, just got my license, my dad bought it because he has to commute and his Tundra gets bad mpg. I share it with my dad because i normally drive a 94 camry, good car but really slow, the civic is just more fun to drive. reliability + performance + good mpg = honda civic. there is really no other car to get.
v-tec engine, manual transmission, sound system, sunroof, standard features, design, performance, quality, its a real chick magnet!
power locks are kinda messed up, other than that its good enough for now until i get my lexus IS300
I love my Civic! Reliable, quite
comfortable, and just the right size.
This is the first Honda I've ever
owned; I definitely would purchase
another one. The 100,000 mile extended
warranty ($850) purchased and financed
when the vehicle was new proved to be
about even in payback. The first repair
occurring at 80K (rear seal leak) and a
split manifold at 92K were both covered
by the extended warranty, including car
rental. The only other repairs were
brakework at 90K and 106K plus a timing
belt and water pump that I elected to
replace at 105K as a preventative
measure. The muffler is the original.
Although I have 111,000 miles on the
vehicle, it appears to be mechanically
I love the adjustable driver's seat! I
can actually see the hood of this car.
The gas mileage (34.7 overall) is
fantastic! (FYI: around town mileage
is only in the lower twenties.) The
vehicle is pretty peppy when I'm flying
My 200+ pound husband says he's driven
bigger go carts; the driver's seat in
particular is cramped for large-framed
people. The single CD player/radio
that I upgraded to at purchase has an
annoying incremental volume adjustment
and so-so speakers. Trunk clearance
for large objects is limited.
I love this car. It's quick,a gas
saver,and fun to drive. I traded my
nissan maxima for a smaller car.I found
my car after months of research.I love
the attention it gets at stop lights
and other places and I haven't even
added the mods yets.
v-tec engine, sporty look, parkability
Needs better seats,a 6th gear,motorized
antenna, and better stock tires
this is by far the most fun to drive
car i have ever owned and i have had
many different cars in my life. the
handling is amazing and the power that
you get out of a little 1.6 liter
engine is unbelievable. plenty of
affordable mod's for this car
available. i plan to keep this car as
long as i can.
8,000 rpm redline. dohc vtech engine.
smooth handling. the look of the front
grill(especially if you remove the H).
more torque. bigger wheels and lower
profile tires. maybe even a sixth gear
would be nice for highway driving.
I bought this car used in January of
2004 with a shockingly low 20k miles
on it. While car shopping, I said
that I wanted a 4 Door Car and a car
that was not a Civic. And look what I
ended up with? A easy to drive car
that gets you from point A to point B
with no trouble at all. I had a 1996
Accord before this and I enjoy driving
the Civic more. It hasn't had a
problem, which is great for a college
student like myself. Decent looking
car with excellent sight lines for
lane changes or parallel parking, but
I do worry about it being stolen.
After 6 months with the car, I found
myself saying "I know why there's so
many on the road."
Easy to park due to sight lines and
compact size. Comfortable backseat,
my friends are surprised at how roomy
it is back there (you'll really only
fit 4 in the car comfortably, barring
a very tall driver). Good fuel
economy and trunk space for a car of
More low end torque, the uphills can
be a struggle, especially with
passengers. More cupholders would be
nice. Less prone to theft somehow And
who wouldn't want HIDs or navigation,
but you can't have everything
