2000 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Review

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.


Best Features

8,000 rpm redline. dohc vtech engine. smooth handling. the look of the front grill(especially if you remove the H).


Worst Features

more torque. bigger wheels and lower profile tires. maybe even a sixth gear would be nice for highway driving.

Vehicle

2000 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe


Review

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."


Best Features

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 this class.


Worst Features

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

2000 Honda Civic Si 2dr Coupe


Review

I bought my 2000 Civic Si brand new. I
have never had a single problem with
it mechanically. Just followed the
recommneded maintenance - that's it! I
have driven it through fairly heavy
rain/snow with no problems - that is,
AFTER replacing the stock Michelin XGT
V4's, which were downright DANGEROUS
on any wet road conditions. I am now
running Yokohama Avid T4's, which are
not as high-performance but they
increased the ride comfort
considerably - at the cost of more
body lean in the turns due to a softer
sidewall. A fair trade-off, because
their wet-weather capability is
outstanding.


Best Features

This car has possibly the best outward vision I have experienced in a 2 dr coupe. Very "open" feel to it. The engine is quick, the shifting smooth and the back seat even has more legroom than many small 4 dr sedans!


Worst Features

1.) Toss the factory air filter and replace with a K&N. Then REPLACE THE K&N EVERY 15K mi. (don't be cheap!) 2.) After break-in, use Mobil-1 5w-30w w/K&N oil filter.

2000 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan


Review

Good: Interior build quality and
control layout is hard to beat in a
car of this price. Controls are all
well placed and materials are high
quality. The car is very comfortable
to drive.

Bad: Engine is noticeably loud in the
upper RPM ranges. Automatic
transmission is not very smooth
between shifts. Engine downshifts as
soon as I take my foot off the
accelerator, then abruptly shifts back
up into previous gear. Causes car to
lose speed even when traveling
downhill! Strange black trim pieces
gave me pause. Why didn't Honda make
the EX exterior trim, which was
integrated and color matched, a
standard on all trim levels.


Best Features

Great interior build quality. Nice driver comfort. Well placed controls. Honda reliability. Solid gas mileage. High resale value. I got the car for 1000$ below Edmunds TMV.


Worst Features

Redesign that stupid transmission. Get rid of the dumb black trim pieces on LX, DX, HX trims. Could use a bit more power. Steering and brakes need to have more feel. Make the engine quieter and add more sound dampening material. All of these issues were addressed in 2001+ years.
