2003 Honda Civic LX 4dr Sedan (1.7L 4cyl 4A)


This car handles quite well, rides smoothly and is very quiet. Sporty, fun to drive, better overall feel than a Cavalier. No frills. There are some annoyances -- one delay wiper setting, how the door locks work, cramped driverís quarters because of a large door storage space that digs into your knee. Brakes are not responsive; you have to mash them to the floor to stop. Shifter does not stop you from shifting through Drive or bumping it out of Drive into gear 2 or 3. The speedometer is difficult to read because the lines that show odd numbered speeds (like 30 MPH) are too short to differentiate. Hard to tell these things on one test drive!

Best Features

Responsive engine for a 4CYL, gas mileage, dashboard design and layout, ENORMOUS trunk area, very roomy.

Worst Features

Gas/brake too close together, keep gear shift from shifting with a little nudge, smaller door storage spaces, responsive brakes, easier to read speedometer, passenger side door lock switch, better hi-beam light system (too easy to turn them on by accident).
