2003 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
My Civic has been extremely reliable and gets great gas mileage (around 33mpg average in mixed driving). Honda dealers are also nice to work with after purchase for in-warranty and out of warranty service.
Illuminated dash, fuel economy, nice looking for a compact car.
Better paint job, better A/C, stock radio/cd was awful for the top trim (EX), front wheels often spin when accelerating from a stop on wet pavement even after replacing tires.
