2003 Honda Civic EX 4dr Sedan w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
Bought used in 11/2008 with 42k miles. In the first year I put 26k commuting to work 60 miles round trip and a couple of trips to the beach. This car has taken a beating the way I drive it and it has not let me down once. Needless to say, its dependable...that's why I bought it in the first place. For a small, 4cyl sedan, I couldn't be happier. No clicking, rattling or odd noises/smells at any time. All parts/side moldings still holding strong. Transmission always shifts smoothly. The abrupt downshift when braking is actually the"automatic brake assist" a good safety feature but can be annoying at times. Overall...I love my Civic.
Safety: front and side airbags, ABS brakes, auto-brake assist. Always reliable, gas mileage, cheap to own/operate. Trunk space. Takes a beating and keeps on going.
Seating comfort not too bad but not the greatest either.
