03 LX sedan

2003 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Review
Bought the car new in Oct 2002. I was looking for the clearance 2002 but liked the 03 a lot more. I get plenty of compliments for the cool-blue LED gauges; even a guard at a security check point gave compliments. I get about 32 mpg average in mixed driving but highway mileage easily gets close to 40 mpg if you drive around the speed limit. Low-speed ride can get harsh and the stock suspension is tuned all wrong. The front suspension is soft but the rear is stiff and bouncy, especially going over speed bumps. I am going to have to change out the shocks ASAP. Highway ride is stable and the car feels solid at speeds, however. Oil filter is located in the worst place, ever.
Favorite Features
gas mileage, LED guages, big trunk, handling, improved seat fabric and headrest for the rear for 03, smooth engine idle, reliability, quiet hvac operation.
Suggested Improvements
fix that suspension damping, slightly more power would be good (addressed for the 06 model), slightly bigger back seat, carpet under the trunk lid
