My new honda

Vehicle: 2003 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)

I absolutly love my new Honda Civic. My last car was a 1988 Honda Accord Hatchback which lasted me more than 18 with NO repairs (tires, brakes,etc. not withstanding). I'm sure I will get the same reliability and dependability with my new car. It looks beautiful with the spoiler and ground pkg. it has a very sporty look and feel and I get many compliments on it.

This is a very fun car to drive. It is sporty but still remains conservative enough for the professional to drive. Great commuter car.

Vehicle: 2003 Honda Civic LX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)

This is my second Honda Civic. My last one was a '91 with 145,000 miles that I gave to my niece. This car is bigger than my old one, with more zip. Gas mileage is very good for a car that's not broken in yet (31 combined). I love the styling. Only thing that concerns me is the sheet metal seems thinner than on my old one. I've already had to have a dink taken out of the door.




It works.

Unless you have some type of phobia about being on the road in a small vehicle alongside all these SUV's, this is the car for you. It has great gas mileage,is affordable, reliable, and fun to drive. The only complaint I have is the ill designed rubber front spoiler flap which has come off in both our Civics.
