Purchased my Civic 2/04 w/42,995 miles. Been very reliable and great on gas, I get 37MPG overall. Change oil w/Mobil 1 synthetic and rotate tires every 3k religiously. Dealer for other scheduled maintenance according to manual. Very meticulous. Now I need new cat converter, new electronic load distributor and new seal for manifold leak. Total $2k. In addition I need new strut up front (replaced once when I bought car). Just as a warning to others. I didn't see these repairs noted in other reviews. This is first time car has needed serious repair. Overall, still a great car.
Reliable, great on gas, handles well. Great car for the $$
Better insulate from road noise. Rotors need to be machined every 25k. my '95 VX seems to have been built better and more reliable (if that is possible!)
