It is what it is...

2003 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe (1.7L 4cyl 5M)
Overall, I am pleased. I had owned
a '99 Civic Ex coupe for 2.5 yrs and
switched to a 6 cyl Jeep Wrangler.
After only 4 months of owning the Jeep
I found my favorite hangout to be the
service dept, so I decided to trade.
The civic is much as I had remembered:
an affordable, sporty, fuel efficient
auto with generic styling, especially
the rear. The seats are comfortable,
just needs some additional power to
challenge the larger bolsters.
Overall, it does the job and then
some... reliable, peppy, and fun...you
won't be let down.
Gauges, and the interior erogonomics
are wonderful. Everything is within
reaching distance. Standard floormats,
cargo net, cd player are a plus.
Sunroof, although don't get it with the
visor, cuts down the opening in 1/2.
Factory 15" alloys and Michlin tires.
Less roll in the suspension, more power
is needed. More sound deadening
material on the floors and firewall to
cut noise. Overall, one of the best
values in the compact, economy market.
This car won't leave you second
guessing your purchase, even 4 years
down the road!
