Very easy to drive even though it's been
ages since I drove one.
Smooth clutch/shifter action.
Quieter than the competition, feels nice
and solid. Driver's seat perfect fit
for me. Has right amount of power with
focus - no rear head rests, cheap
plastic interior, noisy
mazda3 - great, but console
blocks my leg
impreza wagon - felt loose, closing
doors caused rattles all over,
uncomfortable driver seat bottom
forester X - very nice overall, too
much $$$, vague stick, not sure I like
vibe (AWD & FWD) - very noisy, no
power in automatics
mini - very nice, but dealer too far,
element - drives like a truck

After a few months of shoping and 15 or
so test drives I thought I would drive
my teenage love the Civic SI. I barely
got myself out of the dealer without
taking it home. I wasn't in need of the
car for another two months. So the
research began, how well recieved was
this impresive little car. Well the day
finaly came I'm not easy to make happy
and every time I get the chance I want
to drive it. I can't imagine what else
I could want from it

My 2002 honda civic sir is the worst
vehicle I ever owned. Gas guage never
worked, parking brake never worked,
cruise control quit, rain cutter
mouldings came out, rear window washer
motor and assembley had to be replaced.
Gas mileage was poor. The engine ran
rough cold and would cough and sputter
when hot. The longer I drove it the
rougher the clutch and shifting became.
I put 31000 km on this car in 11 months.
I dealt the car for a four door civic
after a 11 months of trouble with the
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.
