My "bad " little car

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)

I use the word "bad" in the title as many young people use the word - "Bad" is good and my 2002 Civic is just that - Good! Good gas mileage (36 per gallon on the road) Good in that I can use regular gas as opposed to Premium, good in that it is easy on my pocketbook to maintain, good to look at and easy on the eyes. Good in that it maintains its value and has little depreciation. Good relationship with my dealer. Good continuing contact with the salesman who sold me the car, Good, good, good. My "Bad" Little car is GOOD.

Love my civic

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

I commute an hour each way to work, and this car is perfect for both the commute or for hopping around town. Extremely comfortable seating, very quiet inside, decent stereo, almost no blind spots. My only complaints so far have been minor (mostly cosmetic) issues -- when it's wet outside, a LOT of rain seems to come in, even with the window only cracked. The air conditioner seems to sometimes take a long time to reach full power. It could use a little more horsepower, but that's not a deal-breaker for me. My first impression upon buying was that it seemed like it should cost more than it did.. and that hasn't faded.

The Honda Civic is an excellent car, far surpassing the other cars in it's class, when considering original cost, trade-in value, and outstanding fuel economy.

Bought the Brand new Civic on March 26th. Great in gas. Overall handling is good. The car needed wheel alignment in the first week itself. Ride is bumpy.
