2003 Honda Civic EX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 4A)
I've always had Honda type cars and
they all have a certain Honda feel to
them. Solid if not spectacular and
pretty rock solid if one doesn't "dog"
the vehicle. Beautiful styling, fuel
economy and hopefully, long term
The car sits a bit higher than I was
used to on the Integra but am slowly
acclimating, doesn't accelerate as
quick or handle as well as the Integra
but hey, thats the trade off for a
more fuel efficient, comfortable car.
As a constant commuter who gets bogged
in traffic as I do, this is a great
car. For the open road, race car
enthusiast, there are better choices.
I love the 15" alloys and the 6
speaker system is great only after I
swapped out the stock radio for an
aftermarket pioneer. The intstrument
panel is beautiful at night as well!
I don'l like the rear headrests as it
blocks rearward vision for me (and I'm
a 6 footer too!). OEM Firestone FR690
tires are horrible, they slide in dry
and wet normal conditions! Add the
chrome exhaust tip ($20) and it looks
so much more refined and sporty!
