I had owned a used 1979 Honda which
gave 150,000 miles. Got 1991 Civic
Hatchback based on previous performance
of 1979 Hatchback. 1991 gave me
124,000 up to when I saw the 2003 SI.
It is a very smooth operating 5 spd
vehicle. I would rate it as one of the
best small car values on the market.
The 160 hp engine is quiet and powerful
for town or road driving. The
standard 'sports' car features on the
SI make this the best driving vehicle I
have ever owned.
Sun Roof, CD player, locking system,
The three light system for
airconditioning control is not always
visible, depending on driver seat
position. Lights need to be perhaps
larger/brighter for better vision from
at least drivers position. From my
chosen position, I have to lean forward
to check lights.
I really like how spacious my civic is.
The back seats are great because
there's no bump in the middle of the
floor in the back, and there's tons of
leg room even when the driver or
passenger's seat is moved back. Also
the trunk is awesome, it holds so much
stuff, so much space. And if you need
even more space, the back seats fold
down very nice to make more room.
Finally, this car drives like a dream.
I've driven other small cars, and none
of them are as smooth, or drive as
easly as the Civic. This is an awesome
My favorite feature, is the trunk. It
just holds so much stuff. It's great.
great mmileage, all instruments are in
the right place cept for one. the gear
shift can go into a low gear when you
don't want it to and the site of the
reading on shift lever is the only hard
thing to find in the car. having no
sound at stop lights is great. my oil
plug came out while doing 55 mph and
all went well.it shut down and wouldn't
restart. i luv it.
mmileage, insturmentation, controls
gear shift. location of shift location
needs to be relocated. i cannot find it.
quiet this car down.
As a family of a generation of imported
street racing car the newly designed
civic has kept up to todays standards,
not only in price but also in stlye. I
have own a 2001 honda civic which is
exactly the same as the 02 and 03 and i
have upgraded to street performance
(racing modifications) and i am
tellling you hold on for the ride. The
new civic definatly can be call a
civic. Just remember one thing drive
smart not fast, you'll always win.
