2003 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Just bought this Civic 5-speed manual transmission SE model. It seems very practical and comfortable. Everything works and the car is 10 years old. Seating is comfortable, driving view is excellent, power is adequate with the manual transmission. This one was in excellent condition and I hope to keep it for the next 5 years. I really like the biege and brown interior. The dash is a nice quality, it doesn't look cheap. Also easy to park and the rear seats fold flat. The clutch is very intuitive as well.


Best Features

Engine, 5-speed transmission, size, quality, economical.


Worst Features

Wouldn't mind power windows on my model, but I'm fine with the crank windows, one thing less to go wrong. A driver's right arm rest would be nice, too.

2003 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have had the car now for over 5 years; over 80K miles. No mechanical problems at all and fairly good gas mileage. I bought this car for the gas mileage, easy to park/maneuver in city traffic, and it's reliability. All three held true. Needs just a little bit more room for those drivers over 6 feet tall.


Best Features

Gas mileage, exterior look, and performance.


Worst Features

A little bit more leg room for the driver... otherwise not much else.

Review

I bought this car in November 2006 having 14000 miles, now after 15 months I have almost 28000 miles. Since I have the car I'm obsessed by the road noise. I put a blanket in the trunk and I changed the Dunlop sp20 fe tires with Michelin x-radial dt, big improvement, tires are not so noisy anymore and don't squeal on turns. Still if I ran more than 65 mph (sometimes less) I can hear the wind, if it rained I have the sensation that I have the doors open and I hear all the noise, when the water is splashing under the car it's unbelievable how clear you can hear it. The doors starts to shake when listening music with heavy bass. The car starts to shake when the AC is on. Noisy engine.


Best Features

I like the steering wheel look, compared with older Honda models, could be smaller though.


Worst Features

Stop the noise. Wider tires. Put more gears on automatic.

Review

Great car, good on gas, needed struts after only 40000 mi. Had brake shake in the front and grinding in the rear. Three year/36000 warranty isn't very good.


Best Features

Gas mileage.
