Review of the 2004 Honda Civic

  • Still a class leader, the 2004 Honda Civic is the most refined, solidly built economy car on the market.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly engines, roomy interior, reputation for durability and quality, impressive crash test scores.

  • Cons

    Top-of-the-line models are pricey, antilock brakes not available on DX or LX.

  • What's New for 2004

    In typical Honda fashion, the Civic receives a number of minor changes this year in order to keep it fresh. For the coupe and sedan, there's new exterior styling, including restyling for the front and rear bumpers, hood, headlights and grille. Inside, the audio speakers have been upgraded, extra sound deadening material has been added and floor mats are now standard in the LX and EX. The LX trim has slightly bigger wheels this year (15 inches) and standard keyless entry. A new value package contains air conditioning, a CD player and a new center console. For the Si hatchback, there are new headlight and taillight designs, larger 16-inch wheels and flashier interior trim. Like the regular sedan, the Civic Hybrid has updated styling, standard floor mats and improved speakers. It also has a new interior console with an armrest, adjustable rear headrests and a manual driver-seat height adjuster. Finally, all 2004 Honda Civic sedans and coupes have a new seatbelt reminder system.

Fuel saver

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

This is a very good car. I just bought my second 2004 HX exactly like the first. Good power great fuel efficiency and feels solid low wind noise even with the window open




Better than a hybrid?

Vehicle: 2004 Honda Civic HX 2dr Coupe w/Side Airbags (1.7L 4cyl 5M)

Typical Honda build; tight, all controls feel right, smooth and quiet engine, snappy handling and ride. Not a sports car, but very fun to drive nonetheless. Much better power at altitude than the hybrid, particularly on extended grades. Has all the features you really need and none of the silly fluff you don't. Five speed is fun and shifts great. Highly recommended if you're thinking of a 2- door Civic, no sacrifices and amazing mileage. Why do people need more car than this??

There is no better car built for the money - period. Love at first sight - and now, after a year. This is my 14th Honda 8:)
