2003 Honda Civic Hatchback Si 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I love hondas, but this one takes the cake


Best Features

acceleration, shifter, precise steering, gas mileage


Worst Features

It could use bigger/better wheels/tires also should have stereo upgrade package. Lots of people say it needs more horses under the hood but they should stop trying to pass going 90.

2003 Honda Civic Hatchback Si 2dr Hatchback w/Side Airbags (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

I don't mind that this car is not popular because I got mine for $15.6K ... nearly $4K off sticker. The engine is peppy , but could benefit from an extra 20 hp or so. The rally- style shifter, although weird initially, has become intuitive now. Close gear ratios make for fun driving, but a sixth gear is needed for highway crusing (4K rpm at 75 mph). This car is a blast to toss around, but the wheel/tire combination leaves much to be desired. Suspension is a bit bouncy, but well mannered when taking corners at speed. Aftermarket suspension and wheels/tires are a must, in my opinion. Also, the tranny doesn't like 1-2 shifts after a while.


Best Features

Rally-style shifter. Peppy engine. Hatchback versatility. Distinctive styling.


Worst Features

Bigger wheels/tires. At least 20 more hp. Sixth gear.

Review

I bought a brand new Civic Si in july of 2003 and have loved every day I drive it. I look a lot of times to go some where for fun just because I want to drive it. I would say that any one that wants a fun to drive car and one that is riliability is top notch this is the car for you.


Best Features

I love the way the seats fold you and rap around you. All so the way it drives is just alsome.


Worst Features

I think the the seats should have a trim that goes with the car. I have a blue one and the seats have a red trim. I think that it should have a black or blue one.

Review

Finally the hatch is back, with the added convinience of a beefy engine powerplant. This car likes to be reved up and kept up there, afterall thats when it all comes to live. Hit 5000rpm and the beauty of Honda's i-VTEC propels you to the end of the rpm red line. Nice little car, but a bit pricey for what it is, no wonder people opt to pay a couple of thou more and get the Acura RSX.


Best Features

Interior is the best feature of the car. Rally appointed suede seats with red stitching are a plus. Complimenting the seats is the leather wrapped Momo steering wheel and the leather wrapped rally style shifter.


Worst Features

More Power!!! Type-R Power please...Honda!!!
