2003 Honda Civic 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.
