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 best was 41 mpg for a 230 mile highway trip.

Best Features

Great fuel economy. The dashboard lights up automatically. I have not seen this feature on any other economy car. Headrests are well designed. You definitely will not get whiplash if someone rearends you.

Worst Features

The stereo could use 2 more speakers. The trunk lid is kind of high (makes it hard to parallel park). I wish it had daytime running lamps, ABS, and keyless entry all standard. It could also use a few more horses under the hood. Otherwise the car is great.
