Good and reliable, if a bit boring.

2002 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Overall a solid smaller car. It does everything well-enough. I am a bit disappointed with the paint. The color is slightly different between some parts...as if the parts were painted seperately. I have noticed this on quite a few (especially silver) Civics. Also, the (rear) suspension is overly bouncy, as if it is not damped well enough. Interior room in the Coupe could also be better, considering the size. Insurance rates are strangely high for a relatively low cost car. All of this being said, it is a comfortable, competent small car.
Gas mileage; reliability; gear change with manual transmission.
A better, less bouncy suspension; better paint matching; make side airbags standard; make ABS standard on all models
