2003 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
I've had my 2003 Civic LX sedan for a
year now and I love it! It's fairly peppy
for a 4 cylinder car but I wish it had
more power (my weekend car is a
Firebird so I'm kind of spoiled by its
power). The Civic is reliable and fun
to drive. The seats are comfortable
and the fuel economy is excellent. I
usually get 34-36 mpg with my
mostly highway driving. My all time

It could also use a few more horses
under the hood. Otherwise the car is
