2004 Honda Civic Hatchback Si 2dr Hatchback w/Side Airbags (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

This car has everything I want. The lack of rear doors is compensated by the folding back seats. I can easily fit skis and snowboards in there. The mileage is obviously less than advertised. I get about 24/34 city/highway, while redlining it after every red light and toll booth. The goofy-looking thing has its own personality. It feels like a puppy who wants to sprint, just give it a little incentive. The shifter is easy to reach and the suspension is not too rough and hugs corners swimmingly. I have easily fit 3 people in the back, and the front bucket racing seats are amazing. No other car I have driven has the same sporty feel as this one. And i owned VW's, mercedes, ford, and acuras.


Best Features

The engine is powerful enough to haul the car's weight and make it sprint at any speed. The seats, the shifter, and the interior are very thoughtfully designed. 3 cupholders and tons of shelves for sunglasses, phones, etc. The engine sound is a nice low purr.


Worst Features

Make the oil filter easier to reach. I never had to change my oil at a mechanic until I got this car and it is impossible to get to from underneath or above.

2004 Honda Civic Hatchback Si 2dr Hatchback w/Side Airbags (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


Review

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 headroom. VS. others: 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 hill holder vibe (AWD & FWD) - very noisy, no power in automatics mini - very nice, but dealer too far, premium gas element - drives like a truck


Best Features

Driver seat with great support. Shifter and clutch are so nice. Blasphemous, but stock stereo system sounds great to me. Subdued, yet sporty looks, e.g. red stitching, nice, simple looking wheels. Not for poseurs (Scion's brochure/magazine/DVD turned me off their cars).


Worst Features

One more top end gear (or overdrive) for quieter cruising on the hwy. Make moonroof opt., side airbags std. AUX port for stereo, or at least MP3 CD. HVAC knobs where you can feel the settings by hand. Power steering feels a bit light at higher speeds. Remote hatch release.
