2002 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


I bought this car for my wife because she wanted it and it was the smallest car I could fit into without being extremely uncomfortable. We drive the car 70-80 miles per day on average (almost all highway)and average over 40+ mpg driving between 65-70 mph. Currently, I have 572.3 miles on this tank of gas and I need to buy some gas today. The ride is bumpy, but it has been with my last two Honda's I've owned. The Interior of this Civic is about the same size as my 1991 Accord was before this replaced that vehicle after 207K miles. If the car were a bit bigger, I'd buy another one to replace my car.

Best Features

Sunroof and cruise control

Worst Features

Quieter tires. Longer wheelbase. The only true weakness in my view is that heavier/stronger body panels are needed. They are too light and not very dent resistant (we have a large dent in the front driver's side quarter panel due to a neighbor's kid running into it.
